“Without physical evidence, the investigation will not be able to single out a person of interest from the hundreds of individuals who passed through the vestibule where the cocaine was discovered,” the agency said in a statement.
“At this time, the Secret Service’s investigation is closed due to a lack of physical evidence.”
The FBI first identified the substance as “white powder,” but after sending it out for more testing, the packaging was “subjected to advanced fingerprint and DNA analysis.”
“This review included a [backward] examination that spanned several days prior to the discovery of the substance and developed an index of several hundred individuals who may have accessed the area where the substance was found,” a statement read. “The focal point of these actions developed a pool of known persons for comparison of forensic evidence gleaned from the FBI’s analysis of the substance’s packaging.”
The close of the investigation took aback Republican lawmakers. According to Fox News, former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy referred to the closure as special treatment toward the Biden family.
“They have cameras 24-7,” McCarthy said. “It just seems to me when it comes to the ‘Biden, Inc.’ family, they get treated different than anybody else.”
