Politico Helpfully Preparing the Public: 'White House Cocaine Culprit Unlikely To Be Found'

July 5th, 2023 8:52 PM

Gee! Isn't that a shame?

Despite the fact that the White House is probably the most intensely video-surveilled building on the planet, an official with the investigation wants us to believe that the public shouldn't expect the discovery of the culprit who left cocaine there just this past weekend. At least that is what the utterly skepticism-free Politico reporter Daniel Lippman is relaying to his readers on Wednesday in "White House cocaine culprit unlikely to be found: Law enforcement official."

Law enforcement officials confirmed on Wednesday that cocaine was found at the White House over the weekend.

But one official familiar with the investigation cautioned that the source of the drug was unlikely to be determined given that it was discovered in a highly trafficked area of the West Wing.

The small amount of cocaine was found in a cubby area for storing electronics within the West Exec basement entryway into the West Wing, where many people have authorized access, including staff or visitors coming in for West Wing tours.

And yet the first reports were that the cocaine was discovered in the White House library. So why the change of venue? Not a hint of curiosity about the conflicting reports was displayed by crack reporter Lippman.

Asked what the chances are of finding the culprit, the official said “it’s gonna be very difficult for us to do that because of where it was.”

“Even if there were surveillance cameras, unless you were waving it around, it may not have been caught” by the cameras, added the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity given that it’s an ongoing investigation. “It’s a bit of a thoroughfare. People walk by there all the time.”

Lippman's source wants us to believe in the possibility of less video surveillance in the White House than in a typical 7-Eleven. And as for the lame excuse that the White House cameras might not have been "waving" around, if you have multiple stationary cameras then where one camera leaves off recording the suspect, another one picks him (or her) up even before he (or she) leaves the view of the first camera.

In addition, people can be tracked via geofencing technology which means people with cell phones can be tracked. This is what law enforcement did to track down over a thousand protestors at Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021. This technology worked perfectly to track them all down with the lone exception of the January 5 pipe bomber because according to the head of the FBI's Washington D.C. field office, the pipe bomber's cell phone data was "corrupted."

The Secret Service is leading the investigation, with the FBI assisting.

The investigation has just started yet we are already expected to believe they will fail to identify the perp. At least that is what they appear to hope that a gullible public will buy with the assistance of a very cooperative and conveniently unquestioning Politico reporter.
