Republicans question report White House 'cocaine culprit' may not be found: 'Difficult to accept' | Joggingvideo.com

Republicans question report White House 'cocaine culprit' may not be found: 'Difficult to accept'

Republican lawmakers are raising questions about media reports that say the person who left a bag of cocaine in the White House might never be found.

“I’ve been in and out of that entrance a million times. It’s one of the most heavily secured and constantly surveilled places on earth. They keep detailed records on who enters and exits and when. I find it difficult to accept that they can’t figure out who put the cocaine there,” Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said on Thursday night. 

The comments come after multiple reports citing unnamed sources close to the U.S. Secret Service probe of the incident suggested the suspect’s identity might not be determined over the course of the investigation.

“How can the [White House] say the cocaine culprit will likely never be Identified? They have video and visitor logs as well as facial recognition,” said Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., similarly questioned, “How can law enforcement officials say it is ‘unlikely’ they’ll be able to track down the culprit who brought cocaine into the White House?”

“White House cocaine culprit unlikely to be found, as long as White House officials don’t want them found,” said Sen. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.
