In spite of the Secret Service’s official indifference to the White House cocaine scandal, former agent Don Bongino is not yielding up his position without a fight.
Neither are some of the previous agents he worked with.
In a report published on Twitter by a Daily Signal reporter, Bongino asserted that since the startling discovery of cocaine in the White House on July 2 began to garner international attention, a group of fellow agents began messaging and emailing him.
“They are absolutely furious about this,” Bongino told the reporter. “I got 50 emails, communications, texts from people. ‘This is embarrassing. Humiliating … They know exactly who it was.’”
In this regard, Bongino and his fellow ex-Secret Service agents do not agree with the Secret Service’s official judgment from last week saying the identity of the person who took cocaine inside the White House’s West Wing before the Fourth of July vacation will never be known.

According to Bongino, only a handful of individuals would have access to that area of the White House in the first place. He has frequently assailed the White House’s account of the events surrounding the discovery of the cocaine. Bongino once more conveyed these details to reporter Mary Margaret Olehan.
The West Wing of the White House has “limited access — it’s even more limited access on the weekend,” he explained when compared to the East Wing, that’s available for public tours and similar activities.
“So, there’s probably less than 200 people who could have left this cocaine,” he added.
“They gotta know who did it. The question is, who’s pressuring them … to not find out who did it. And it’s gotta be coming from this White House.”
Bongino made his feelings known when he urged the Secret Service’s officers and agents to resist allowing the Democratic agenda to destabilize their organization the way it has the FBI, a once-respected law enforcement agency whose reputation has been tarnished by, among other things, its inept handling of the Hunter Biden laptop investigation and its interference in the 2020 election.
