Of Course: Official Warns That The Source Of Cocaine Found In White House May Never Be Known
A source familiar with the investigation into how cocaine ended up in the West Wing of the White House is claiming the person who brought it there will likely never be identified.
In case you missed the sensational story, the illegal drug was found in a cubby in a heavily-trafficked visitor area on Sunday. The discovery came about during a routine Secret Service sweep of the location.
President Joe Biden and his family were reportedly not at the White House at the time, returning early on Tuesday.
One source told Reuters that the Secret Service was conducting a thorough investigation including “checking visitor logs and … looking at cameras.”
But another official familiar with the investigation offered more tempered expectations for finding who brought the bag of cocaine into the White House.
“It’s gonna be very difficult for us to” find out who did this, they told Politico. “Even if there were surveillance cameras, unless you were waving it around, it may not have been caught” by the cameras.
The official added that “People walk by there all the time.”
Who left a baggie of cocaine in the Biden White House? Even before investigation concludes, lots of sources seem to be saying we’ll never know. Even if there’s video — we’ll never know. Sorry, we’ll just never know. From @politico: https://t.co/eNo26NRJCz

Cocaine In The White House – And We May Never Know How It Got There
First off, the crack staff of the Secret Service and FBI want you to think that they’ll never find the person who brought cocaine into the White House. Even as they spent the past two years going to the ends of the Earth locating people who may have simply passed through the Capitol briefly on January 6th and then hit them with every charge in the book.
But Cocaine Bear walks through the West Wing and they’re all … meh.
And the number of people in that area is a factor? How many hundreds did they track down after the Capitol riot using single still images and facial recognition technology? Please.
Second, shouldn’t they be conveying an air of confidence that they’ll definitely find who brought a white powdery substance into the White House and they’ll do so very quickly?
What if this was ricin that somebody dropped off in the West Wing? Would they be exhibiting the same cavalier attitude?
Surprisingly, the media isn’t letting the incident go. Reporters asked questions about the discovery of cocaine in the White House nine times at a press briefing Wednesday.
Biden Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded by using the word “purview” 13 times, saying it was out of the President’s hands and they just had to sit back and let the Secret Service figure out the big mystery.
Trump Suggests The Cocaine Is Biden’s
Former President Donald Trump suggested the cocaine found in the White House was for President Biden and his son Hunter, who is known to have been a drug user in the past.
“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 [and] Joe Biden?” he asked on Truth Social.
He speculated about the investigation in a follow-up post.
“Where are the White House SECURITY TAPES … which will quickly show where the Cocaine in the White House came from?” Trump wondered. “They already know the answer, but probably don’t like it!”

Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve after failing a cocaine test, and he has an open and well-documented history of drug use.
Despite that fact, there is no evidence suggesting the stash of blow was his. Or that he had someone deliver it for him. Or that the delivery was Door Dashed off a local DC menu which also featured parmesan cheese. Seriously people.
In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning ahead of the release of his memoir last year, the Hunter quipped, “I probably smoked more parmesan cheese than anyone you know.”
“I spent more times on my hands and knees picking through rugs smoking anything that even remotely resembled crack cocaine,” he said.
In this interview Hunter Biden says he smoked parmesan cheese because it resembled crack cocaine…
“Hunter Biden is the smartest person I know”

Definitely not his.
Jean-Pierre refused to commit to expressing the White House’s desire that the cocaine culprit be prosecuted, instead telling reporters she’s “just not going to get into hypotheticals from here.”
Former Vice President Mike Pence poked fun at the Biden administration, noting that cocaine had never been found when he and Trump were in the White House.
Pence added that had it happened under Trump, there would have been “‘wall to wall [coverage].”

Perhaps they’d take it seriously if they had to track down somebody wearing a MAGA hat in the West Wing. That person would have been lying on the floor with hands cuffed behind his back yesterday.
