Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) of the House Oversight Committee said during an interview Monday that he believes that the U.S. Secret Service has identified someone as a suspect in the case involving cocaine that was found last week in the White House.

Fallon told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum that he spoke with law enforcement officials in his home state how long it should take for fingerprints to be taken off the baggie that had the cocaine and he was told it should be within an hour.

“If there was no fingerprints, they could have told us immediately,” he said. “So, I suspect there are fingerprints, and you can run it through a database, and this was found where high level aides and staffers are, so most of them were fingerprinted at one time or another, so they may very well already know who it belongs to and aren’t sharing with us and that’s my greatest concern and worry.”

WATCH:

Officials said last week that they thought that the Secret Service would have its investigation concluded by today but the timeline was later pushed back.

“Secret Service briefing on White House cocaine now moved UP to Thursday, July 13 at 10 am,” said Fox News correspondent Chad Pergram. “Will be with staff. Had been told earlier today it would be moved back until late July. But that just changed. Fox is told this means the USSS may have more to share about its inquiry.”

The Secret Service confirmed last week that the white powdery substance, which was found last Sunday, was, in fact, cocaine after it underwent multiple rounds of lab testing.

The discovery prompted widespread speculation that the cocaine could have belonged to Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s troubled son who has battled cocaine and crack addiction in the past and has recently been seen at the White House. However, officials did not say if the younger Biden is under suspicion.
