Frustrated Republicans allege coverup in White House cocaine probe, suggest drug testing suspects

"I think this is a complete failure," Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene said.

House and Senate Republicans blasted the decision Thursday by the Secret Service to abruptly end a probe into the discovery of cocaine inside the Biden White House, with some saying it wasn't a full investigation and more needed to be done. 

"Do I believe that they weren't able to fully investigate this and probably identify the person who brought that cocaine in the White House?" Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) asked on the Thursday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "Not for a minute. I think they just did not do a proper investigation."

Cocaine was found on the White House premises almost two weeks ago, which resulted in a probe initiated to find out whose it was. 

The Secret Service announced Thursday that they were unable to find fingerprints or DNA on the bag of cocaine and that the probe is set to end Friday.

"I think most Americans simply can't trust the FBI or the Department of Justice anymore," Johnson said. "They've given us so many reasons not to trust them and to question their integrity. And that's where we're at right now."

Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said that the fact that no one was ordered to be drug tested was a complete failure. 

"What I asked the Secret Service was, 'Is anyone going to be drug tested? Has anyone been drug tested?' What they told me is they would not be performing drug tests on anyone–not one single person on the list of 500 potential suspects will take a drug test. So I think this is a complete failure," Greene stated. 

"Americans every single day have to undergo drug tests, simply to maybe get a job or to keep a job," she continued. "So again, it's straight hypocrisy for the government, while the American people have to go by a completely different set of rules."

Greene said she believed authorities were hiding the truth.

"The secret service instead of actually trying to solve the crime, is ending their investigation tomorrow, which tells us everything that we need to know," she said. "We don't call that an investigation. We call that creating a coverup. And so I think it's clear for everyone what's going on."

Arizona GOP Congressman Andy Biggs said that he's not surprised by what's happening at the White House at all.

"I'll be frank, I'm not not surprised," he said on the "John Solomon Reports" podcast. "But I'm just frustrated. I'm really frustrated. Because you definitely have cocaine there. There's indication that this may not have been the only time."

"It was just very dismaying that this is a group of  great men and women in the Secret Service, and it's very frustrating that they're basically pulling the plug on this thing," he concluded.
