Make no mistake: The Biden administration is laughing at us.
We are meant to believe that the United States Secret Service, tasked with protecting the very life of the president, cannot crack the case of who left cocaine in a secure, hard-to-access part of the White House — despite facial recognition cameras, guest-book logs and security all over the most protected building in the Western world.
The cover-up, as the Nixon-era saying goes, is always worse than the crime.
At least this feels like yet another blatant White House whitewash.
Here, in part, is the statement released by the Secret Service on Thursday. See if you can read this with a straight face.
‘The investigation included a methodical review of security systems and protocols,’ it says, noting that the baggie — which was initially tested for anthrax, its reported location changing three times over one week — was found in a receptacle used to store personal devices before entering the West Wing.
But wouldn’t you know, according to the Secret Service, there are no security cameras in the hallway that leads to the West Wing, to the Oval Office, to the hub of the most powerful person on Earth.
Nope, folks, nothing to see here. Literally.
‘There was no surveillance video footage found that provided investigative leads or any other means for investigators to identify who may have deposited the found substance in this area,’ the statement claimed.
Wow — that’s some thicket of words. Almost feels like they’re trying to overcompensate, does it not?
‘Without physical evidence,’ the statement continued, ‘the investigation will not be able to single out a person of interest… the Secret Service’s investigation is closed.’
So let’s get this straight: The United States was able to find Osama bin Laden hiding out in a secure walled-off compound in Pakistan, but the Secret Service can’t crack this conundrum, quite literally under their noses?
If taken at face value, what does that say about the competence of this White House? Of Joe Biden?
If the president’s security is that porous, that lax, shouldn’t he be demanding answers? Shouldn’t the media?
What if the next baggie contains ricin? Shouldn’t Biden be calling for heads to roll?
It probably won’t surprise you to hear that veteran FBI agent Mark Morgan, former Border Commissioner under Donald Trump, says this inquiry should have been a snap.
‘An investigation like this is pretty straightforward,’ Morgan told DailyMail.com last week. ‘Everybody that enters the White House is manifested. They know who comes in, they know where they came in, they’re checked, and there are video cameras everywhere.’
Of course. Common sense dictates as much. But Biden continues to take us all for idiots.
This closed case smells ever more rank given his son Hunter’s recent slaps on the wrist. Charged with felony gun possession and failure to pay his taxes on income of $1.5 million annually in 2017 and 2018, Hunter walked.
