Confirmed! White substance found at the White House is cocaine

A powdery substance discovered by the Secret Service at the White House on Sunday was cocaine, a law enforcement official said Wednesday, as questions linger about how the drug got into the building

After the testing reports confirmed that substance was nothing but “cocaine”

The discovery of the substance caused a brief shutdown of the White House after Secret Service officers found it in a common storage area on the ground floor of the West Wing, which houses the Oval Office and offices of some of the president’s top aides and support staff. The official said it was found in a zip-close bag near an entrance where visitors taking tours are directed to leave their phones.

Secret Service agents found the powder during a routine inspection in an area that is accessible to tour groups.
