The Emergency Response Unit of the District of Columbia has declined a records request seeking details about its response to a cocaine search at the White House last month.

The DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department (EMS) announced Friday that it is withholding 19 pages of documents sought under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The request was submitted by Jason Leopold.

Leopold made the following request:

  1. A copy of the request and/or radio call by the US Secret Service for a Hazmat team to respond to a white powder-like substance found at the White House.
  2. A copy of the final report of the test of white powder by the Hazmat team that was found to be cocaine in the West Wing of the White House.
  3. Photos of the substance, any must be present.
  4. Emails referencing a cocaine/white powder-like substance found in the White House.
  5. Final Incident Report/After Action Report in which the white powdery substance found at the White House is referred to as cocaine. (Date Range for Record Search: 07/03/2023 to 07/05/2023)

In a response letter to the FOIA request, Christina Dalton, information and privacy officer for DC Fire and EMS, said she was declining the request under two specific laws.

The first statute quoted explicitly forbids disclosure of “investigative techniques and procedures not generally known outside the government”.

The second law cited by DC Fire and EMS raises even more questions. He claimed that the release of the 19 pages was being held up because they contained “specific vulnerability assessments”. He further stated that the purpose of withholding the release of this information was “to prevent or reduce any acts of terrorism.”

  1. DC Official Code § 2-534(a)(3)(e) – felony records/investigative techniques” – investigative records compiled for law enforcement purposes, including records of investigations conducted by council inquiries and the Police Complaints Office, but only to the extent that the production of such records would disclose investigative techniques and procedures Generally known outside Govt.
