Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) condescendingly brushed off Fox Business Network correspondent Hillary Vaughn on Monday when she asked him why the Secret Service doesn’t seem to care that cocaine was found in the White House.

Vaughn pressed Swalwell on the subject in an interview on Capitol Hill concerning the Secret Service dismissing the finding of cocaine in the West Wing, claiming there was not enough evidence to go after anyone despite cameras being everywhere and presumed DNA evidence that was present on the bag holding the drugs.
Conservatives immediately cried foul and many seem to now believe it is a cover-up for someone in the White House. Many believe it was probably Hunter Biden himself who had the drugs there. The first son has a long history of crack cocaine addiction.
“Why do you think the Secret Service doesn’t care that cocaine was found at the Biden White House?” Vaughn asked Swalwell, who looked irritated that anyone would dare ask him or any other Democrat that question.
“Oh, I hope they care,” Swalwell testily replied. “There’s thousands of people who go in and out of the White House.”
Then he snarked at the reporter that if conservatives want tighter security, they should talk to the Secret Service about it.
“If you all want to be strip-searched, you know, for substances before you go into the White House, that’s something that you should work with the Secret Service to see if they can accommodate,” he sarcastically told Vaughn.
Swalwell needs to be strip-searched for sure. He might be slipping in a Chinese spy!

The Secret Service fell way short of what was expected of them by the American people in the investigation and trust in the agency was almost completely destroyed over the incident.
White House spokesman John Kirby gave one of the weakest justifications in history on “Fox News Sunday” for closing the investigation, claiming the Secret Service “did the best they could.”

“It’s not the kind of thing we want to see happen. Now, it did happen in a visitor’s lobby area out just outside the main West Wing. So it was a highly trafficked area. We’re going to take a look at how that happened. And obviously, if there’s things we can do to prevent that in the future, we certainly will do that. Nobody’s happy about this,” Kirby asserted to anchor Shannon Bream.
This comes just a few days after Swalwell got into it with Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan during a hearing with FBI Director Christopher Wray while arguing that the GOP has turned into the “party of non-consensual nudes.”

“That is bananas to me. You all are bringing up FISA every single question. You’re essentially saying to the American people that you’re guardians of personal security and privacy. But the 2020 election was determined…” Swalwell interjected during the hearing.
He would go on to try and make light of Hunter Biden’s pornographic obsession with himself on the “laptop from hell” and to somehow intimate that it had nothing to do with the 2020 election.

“That you lost the election not because of your ideas but because a private citizen’s laptop wasn’t out there? That’s bananas,” Swalwell hotly contended. “Like, you should be a party of ideas, not a party of non-consensual nudes to help you win an election. It seems like that is what the objection that is here today.”
“This hearing has turned into absolute chaos. I yield back,” Swalwell stated showing disgust for the proceedings and for anyone who would bring up the laptop in the first place.
