Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show and a previous Secret Service representative, informed Breitbart News on Sunday that “there is simply no chance” the agency does not know whose cocaine was left in White Home.
The Secret Service closed its investigation last week into who left drug in a cubbyhole in the West Wing, the agency mentioning that it was “unable” to “single out a person of interest” due to the fact that of a lack of physical evidence. However, a security source has opposed the Secret Service, informingSoldier of Fortunepublication White House authorities have verified who brought drug into the White Home by means of fingerprint analysis. Some veteran detectives have actually said they think the Trick Service is engaging in a “cover-up.”

In a special interview with Breitbart News in West Palm Beach, Florida, Bongino discussed the logistics of “Cocaine-Gate” from the point of view of somebody who utilized to work for Secret Service, and pressed his former company not to become corrupt like the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
“Listen, I like the Secret Service, OK? It’s the reverse 80/20 guideline. You understand the 80/20 rule? Twenty-percent of the people do 80 percent of the work. My experience in the Secret Service is 80 percent of the people are terrific and 20 percent, you know, not terrible, but not so much,” Bongino said at the 2023 Turning Point Action Conference.
“You do not really discover that in any other organization. Having said that, I have to look at this objectively now. I’m on the media side now. It’s not my task to be a propagandist for anyone. I can inform you, I have actually most likely gotten no less than 50, let’s just say, communications from retired pals of mine who are revolted by this. There is simply no other way they do not understand who that individual [is],” he continued.
Bongino laid out, “without giving up any detailed information” how security works in the West Wing, and broke down an evaluation of how many individuals were probably around at the time the drugs were left in the cubbyhole.
“The East Wing, the residence side, tons of people go through there: ushers, trip groups, whatever. The West Wing is small. It’s no bigger than a huge apartment in Manhattan like an abundant individual would have. It’s not life you saw in the television reveal the West Wing where they are walking down these expansive hallways. There’s none of that. The corridors resemble possibly ten backyards long– it’s a big circle,” he stated.
“So on the weekends, it’s actually limited. There’s most likely less than 1,000 people who went through there. So you’re informing me with a straight face that a non-porous compound, a plastic baggie, where a latent print could be pulled quickly, that you could not find a print, and then you’re informing me you actually could not limit the suspects?” he added.
Bongino kept in mind that, regardless of the fact that the substance discovered was cocaine, somebody was able to bring white powder “perhaps 100 feet away from the president where those cubbies are.”
“Someone brought white powder in and you have no idea who it is? I imply, come on male,” he said. “You have actually got a whole readout of people. I mean, each of those individuals need to be spoken with– everyone. Listen, I’ve safeguarded them when I thought they got a rough shake, not this time, guy. That director requires to tighten it up.”
When asked how he would run the examination if he supervised, Bongino gave a more breakdown of who Secret Service need to talk to and whether any drug testing would be involved.
“This is not made complex. They already are drug checked, the personnel and the Trick Service. So, they are drug evaluated now. So you can say 1,000 people went through the West Wing, that’s probably about best on that weekend. It was found on Sunday, most likely left on a Friday or a Saturday night. The president was out. Hunter Biden leaves on Friday,” he said. “Alright, so now you’ve got, say 1,000 individuals. You can instantly dispose the Trick Service and the staff. They don’t utilize the cubbyholes, they wouldn’t have left anything in the cubbies.”
“So now you’re down to, realistically, 250 people,” he continued. “A guy or a female had white powder in the White House. You’re talking to every single one of those 250 individuals. There’s none of this ‘oh, we don’t have adequate resources.’ You know, the federal government had enough resources for January 6. And realistically too, not to belabor the point, you might most likely get rid of another 100 right now: a number of older folks who was available in and didn’t utilize the cubbies. You can’t speak with 100 people? That’s garbage. I do not buy it.”
Bongino ultimately stated he does not know if the American individuals will discover who left drug in the White Home, and begged Secret Service not to “burn that agency to the ground like the FBI did.”
“Listen male, the government is so messed up therefore corrupt today, it’s actually unfortunate. Argue all you want about the deep state being a conspiracy theory or whatever, that’s all bullsh * t. It’s genuine,” he stated. “We have actually already seen corruption in the intel neighborhood, the FBI. Are we going to find out? The answer is I do not understand … I can’t predict the future. But let me inform you this– I’m simply looking in the video camera and asking the Trick Service management now: simply do not do to America what the FBI did.”
“I suggest, that’s a respected organization, pretty much non-partisan, worthwhile of trust and confidence– that’s their slogan, it actually states ‘deserving of trust and confidence.’ Do not burn that company to the ground like the FBI did. We can’t take anymore,” he stated.
Bongino had more strong words for the FBI and FBI Director Christopher Wray when asked to weigh in on remarks from Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) last week claiming Wray is “doing his best.”
“Nah, that’s bullsh * t. Twinkies-Chris Christie and this other guy– I like Ken Buck a lot. Ken Dollar has actually been a good man on a lot of things. That’s the craziest thing I have actually ever heard,” Bongino stated.
“This guy [Wray] has been in charge with the targeting of pro-lifers, the targeting of Catholics, the targeting of moms and dads at school boards, the SpyGate operation and the consequences– what else do you require to hear with this guy? This man has been an overall train wreck,” he continued.

“By what independent step is that an excellent job? If you were running a personal company and that had actually taken place, you would’ve been fired and the investors would have revolted. Well America’s got shareholders too: they’re called freaking citizens, and we’re tired of this stuff with these people. We offered the stock on the deep state a very long time earlier. It’s time for this person to move on,” he stated. “Every Republican prospect out there running for office, if they inform you this guy is going to stay, then throw their vote right in the garbage since they ain’t worth it.”
Bongino added that he is not just a fan of moving the FBI out of the D.C. Swamp, something Republican legislators are proposing, however moving all federal companies out of the area.
“I enjoy it, yes. I like it. I say move the FBI to Florida … move it to Alabama … It’s an excellent idea. I operated in D.C. and the problem is you get type of instilled because swampy culture,” he noted.
“I state not just the FBI. Pull them all out of D.C. Put some in Omaha, Nebraska. I mean, spread it around. Possibly they will get instilled in this location that politicians call flyover country however we call home. And maybe they will act a little bit more like ‘this is home’ and not some swampy institution,” he said.
I’ve failed a lot. A LOT!
But I thank God for each failure because I used them as discovering opportunities. And after seeing book after book about how terrific people are, I decided to compose a book about my failures, & it’s now offered https://t.co/02SjZn2j9u…

The conservative commentator likewise plugged his brand-new book “The Gift of Failure,” which is available for pre-order now.
“You read all these books about all these individuals telling you how fantastic they are, ideal? ‘Oh look I’m so fantastic, here’s how I prospered.’ So I told my other half, I’m going to write a book about whatever I effed-up. And it is whatever,” he said. “I messed up a lot stuff in my life, and the thing is, you dust off, you get up, and you repair it. So the book is actually raw, I inform a great deal of stories I most likely shouldn’t tell, however about things I truly messed up and how each and every single one of those failures was a gift.”
