The president’s addict son Hunter, according to detractors who allege Donald Trump’s meandering social media post in response to reports of cocaine at the Biden White House.
In addition, the ex-president speculated that the narcotics might belong to ‘crackhead’ Justice Department Special Counsel Jack Smith, who is in charge of looking into Trump’s handling of top-secret papers.
In a Wednesday post on Truth Social, Trump asserted that the media will attempt to minimize the finding of narcotics in the White House by disputing the results of the lab tests.
Following initial testing that produced the same results, secondary lab results on Wednesday determined that the white powder material discovered in the White House on Sunday evening is cocaine.
The Secret Service is still looking for the person who carried the dime-sized bag of illegal substances onto White House grounds.
“Does anybody really believe that the COCAINE found in the West Wing of the White House, very close to the Oval Office, is for the use of anyone other than Hunter & Joe Biden,” Trump said in his post on the incident.
He added: “But watch, the Fake News Media will soon start saying that the amount found was ‘very small,’ & it wasn’t really COCAINE, but rather common ground up Aspirin, & the story will vanish.”
Then, Trump decided against attacking the Bidens and redirected his attention to the DOJ special counsel in the second half of his Truth Social post.
“Has Deranged Jack Smith, the crazy, Trump hating Special Prosecutor, been seen in the area of the COCAINE?” Trump questioned. “He looks like a crackhead to me!”
The U.S. Secret Service (USSS) reiterated that the white powder was discovered in a “work area within the West Wing” of the White House but declined to comment further on the current investigation to DailyMail.com on Wednesday.
In a storage section of the West Wing, a small, zippered bag containing cocaine was found. The exact length of time the suitcase and its contents were at the White House is unknown, hence the timeline is hazy.
Given that the material was discovered in a heavily used location of the White House, a source familiar with the inquiry said Tuesday that it might be challenging to identify the person who brought it into the structure.
Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, suggested during her news conference on Wednesday that given how “highly traveled” the West Wing is, the substance may belong to a lot of people.
Hunter Biden, 52, a drug addict, was promptly implicated by certain Republican politicians and right trolls as the source.
On Sunday night, a Secret Service agent wearing a uniform discovered a white powder material. President Joe Biden was not present when the White House was evacuated as a result of the finding.
The ‘library,’ which is a portion of the executive house two stories below the first family’s living quarters and is also an area open to public tours, was where the powder was discovered, according to dispatch calls to the Washington DC Fire Department.
However, USSS afterwards issued a statement that refuted that dispatch. The West Wing of the White House was described as the location of the cocaine’s discovery.
The illegal substance was discovered in a cubby in a shared storage area where visitors and personnel of the White House frequently keep their cell phones.
A source knowledgeable with the current inquiry also told NBC that the material was discovered in a “small, dime-sized bag.”
The first family was embroiled in scandal as the Secret Service looked into the cocaine incident, diverting attention away from the customary pomp and ceremony of the Fourth of July celebrations at the White House.
While the president and his son Hunter Biden were at Camp David, a disturbing discovery that prompted an evacuation went unmentioned by the White House.
When Secret Service authorities revealed that the cocaine was discovered in the West Wing, which is frequented by members of the Biden administration, White House personnel, and hundreds of journalists, the mystery surrounding its discovery grew deeper on Tuesday afternoon.
The hub of activity in the White House is the West Wing.
The press briefing room, where dozens of members of the White House press corps congregate each day for work, is located there, along with the Oval Office, offices for the president’s executive staff, the Cabinet Room, and the Roosevelt Room.
Every day, career and political White House employees move through the West Wing.
There are so many people there every day, from cleaning and maintenance employees to the closest advisors to the president.
Trolls started speculating that Hunter Biden was the source of the illegal drug getting onto White House grounds after initial reports that the white powder substance was found in the library and was verified to be cocaine.
The White House library, on the other hand, is situated in the executive house and can be seen as part of the tour. Additionally, it is two storeys below than the residence of the first family.
Despite reports of the cocaine’s origin, Hunter, his wife Melissa Cohen, and their three-year-old son Beau attended the Fourth of July festivities on the South Lawn on Tuesday night.
Two days after Hunter was last observed in the White House on his way to Camp David with his father for the long weekend, the cocaine was found.
The Secret Service is still looking into the mystery of who brought cocaine into the White House and has sent the drug for more testing.
“On Sunday evening, the White House complex went into a precautionary closure as officers from the Secret Service Uniformed Division investigated an unknown item found inside a work area,” reads a USSS statement provided to DailyMail.com on Tuesday.
“The DC Fire Department was called to evaluate and quickly determined the item to be non-hazardous,” it continues. “The item was sent for further evaluation and an investigation into the cause and manner of how it entered the White House is pending.”
Pro-Trump Republican Rep. Jim Banks tweeted: “They never found cocaine in the Trump White House!”
“The Bidens are unfit to live in the White House!” he wrote in a follow-up tweet with a link to a story on the cocaine found in the mansion.
While reporting on the cocaine find, far-right Newsmax anchor Robb Schmitt remarked: “It wouldn’t be a thumpin’ July 4th weekend without Hunter Biden ripping lines off of a bust of Teddy Roosevelt.”
“Cocaine was found at the White House and Hunter Biden currently lives at the White House. FBI has no clue who it belongs to. Anyone want to help them?” a Twitter journalist with nearly 200k followers wrote.
The squad from the D.C. fire department that responded to the call judged the drug did not present a threat, and the dispatch tape from the fire crew confirmed testing revealed it was cocaine.
“We have a yellow bar saying cocaine hydrochloride,” a firefighter with the D.C. department of hazardous materials radioed at 8:49 on Sunday, according to the Post.
“Bag it up and take it out,” the firefighter instructed.
