12:30 PM PT – Former Secret Service Bobby McDonald The Secret Service has said it does not have video of those who left the cocaine at the White House because the area where it was found does not have security cameras.
Bobby joined us on “TMZ Live” Thursday and explained why the area of the West Wing where the baggie of cocaine was found is not properly monitored by video…
The Secret Service is said to have narrowed down the list of suspects, based on who was in the area at the time, but without video or physical evidence to nail the culprit … the case is closed.
Anyone who has left a coke in the White House can smile…
The Secret Service says it has closed its investigation into a bag of cocaine found on July 2 in the West Wing – and, shockingly, they have not been able to determine who left it.
The agency says there was “no surveillance video” that revealed who downed the coke. Further, the Secret Service says the FBI lab found no fingerprints or DNA it could use to compare it to “a group of known people” … like White House staff.
It is interesting that the authorities say coke was found in “a container used to temporarily store electronic and personal equipment before entering the West Wing.”
You’d think there would be security cameras covering almost every inch of the President’s residence – especially in the West Wing, which is home to many visitors, reporters and staff every day. If you buy what the Secret Service is saying here… then, apparently, it’s not.
The Secret Service says it is closing the investigation “due to a lack of concrete evidence.”
