Cocaine found in White House was in 'limited access' location near Situation Room

July 8, 2023

The White House narrative that a bag of cocaine found in the people's house could have been left by a random tourist is not looking realistic given new information that the drugs were found in a place with "limited access" to the public, near the Situation Room and the entrance by which the vice president's car is parked.

“It is still a publicly trafficked, frequently trafficked place, but it’s down near the Situation Room right off West Executive [Drive] down below," MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell acknowledged. "And normal people — just average people just can’t get in there even with the entry for the Northwest Gate.”

The Secret Service confirmed the location, which is near an entrance used by administration officials, staffers, and official visitors, like those from other federal agencies.

White House staffers can bring personal guests there with proper background checks and approval from the Secret Service.

Former President Donald Trump said that viewing security footage from the area should reveal who brought the drugs into the White House and left them there.

It's almost like the White House doesn't really want to know -- or does know and desperately doesn't want the public to know.
