Secret Service to Brief Comer’s Oversight Committee on Cocaine Found at White House

According to ABC News, the Republican-led House Oversight Committee, including its members and staff, is scheduled for a confidential briefing on Thursday morning regarding the cocaine discovered in the West Wing of the White House earlier this month.

The session is scheduled to start at 10 a.m.

The briefing was called upon in a July letter by Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., addressed to the Director of the Secret Service, Kimberly Cheatle.

In his letter, Comer expressed that the discovery of illegal drugs within the White House premises was a matter of concern, casting doubts on the extent of security measures in place.

Furthermore, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., voiced his concerns regarding the cocaine incident to Cheatle, as reported by Axios, questioning if the Secret Service intended to amend any existing security vulnerabilities.
