This whitewash will not make the scandal disappear.
The Great White House Cocaine Mystery of 2023 may have been publicly dismissed by the Secret Service, but former Secret Service agent Don Bongino refuses to let it expire without a fight.
Neither are some of the former agents with whom he served.
In an interview published on Twitter by The Daily Signal reporter Mary Margaret Olohan on Sunday, Bongino stated that his social network of fellow agents had been texting and emailing him since the explosive discovery of cocaine in the White House on July 2 made international headlines.
“They are absolutely furious about this,” he said. “I got 50 emails, communications, texts from people. ‘This is embarrassing. Humiliating … They know exactly who it was.’”
In other words, neither Bongino nor his fellow former Secret Service agents accept the conclusion reached by the Secret Service last week that the question of who brought cocaine into the West Wing of the White House prior to the Fourth of July holiday will never be answered.

Bongino, who has repeatedly attacked the White House’s version of the events surrounding the discovery of the cocaine, reiterated them to Olohan, emphasizing that only a limited number of people would have access to that area of the White House in the first place.
In contrast to the East Wing of the White House, which is open to public tours and the like, the West Wing is “limited access — it’s even more limited access on the weekend,” he said.
“So, there’s probably less than 200 people who could have left this cocaine,” he said.
“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.”
Regardless of the source of the pressure, Bongino made his feelings clear earlier when he urged the men and women in the Secret Service to avoid letting the Democratic agenda do to their agency what it’s done to the FBI — a once-admired law enforcement that has degraded itself in the public’s eye by, among other things, its atrocious treatment of the Hunter Biden laptop investigation and its meddling in the 2020 election.
“There’s no way that this should have went down the way it did,” he said. “Let me just say as a personal plea to my former colleagues in the Secret Service whom I adore and love, ‘Don’t do to that agency what the FBI did to itself.’”
The only real question about the cocaine mystery, Bongino said, is: “Is it Hunter or one of his friends?”
“Here’s the thing,” he said. “I’m in the Secret Service 12 years, a good amount of time. We’ve never had this problem. … By Occam’s Razor, the process of deduction. Keep things simple. Keep it simple, stupid.
