On Sunday, July 3, 2023, there was a report of a “dangerous material” being discovered in the White House. The chemical, which was discovered inside the executive home, was the subject of an investigation by the US Secret Service.
The material did not pose a threat, according to the D.C. fire department, but the Secret Service was still looking into how it entered the White House.
An increased security alert and a brief White House evacuation were sparked by the discovery. At the time, President Biden was not residing in the White House.
The chemical is awaiting testing to discover what it is, according to the Secret Service, which has not provided any other information about it. Also, they are investigating how it entered the White House.

There have been reports of suspicious material being found in the White House twice in recent months. The Secret Service looked into a claim of a “chemical smell” in the West Wing in February. This inquiry also produced no results.
Why someone would attempt to sneak a dangerous substance into the White House is unclear. The Secret Service, however, is looking into the event and treating the situation seriously.
