In a stunning turn of events, a small bag of white powder, later identified as cocaine, was discovered on White House premises, sparking an immediate investigation by the Secret Service.
The cocaine was discovered on Sunday by Secret Service agents conducting a routine inspection of the White House.
A preliminary test quickly confirmed that the baggy of white powder was cocaine.
The Secret Service is conducting an investigation to figure out how the Schedule II substance might have found its way into the executive mansion where President Joe Biden lives.
Reports initially suggested that the cocaine was found in the library of the White House, but officials later clarified that is was found in the West Wing.
Reporters have speculated that perhaps a tourist taking a tour of the White House earlier in the day threw the baggy into an area where tours do not take tourists.
The investigation into the conundrum didn’t appear to hamper the White House’s celebration of Independence Day, though, as the Biden family was able to watch Washington, D.C.’s fireworks display from a balcony.
