The discovery of cocaine in the White House has raised questions about its ownership, with the Biden administration refusing to provide a clear answer. When asked whether the drugs belonged to President Joe Biden or his son, Hunter Biden, White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates did not provide a direct response, stating that the matter is being investigated by the Secret Service. Bates also alluded to former President Donald Trump’s social media posts on the issue, dismissing them as wild and suggesting increasing frustration from that corner.
Bates cited the Hatch Act as a reason for not elaborating further on the potential ownership of the drugs. He emphasized the need to respect the ongoing investigation conducted by the Secret Service and expressed a commitment to assisting in any way necessary. When pressed on whether the administration will be transparent about the investigation, Bates deferred to the Secret Service professionals carrying out the inquiry.
The lack of a clear denial from the Biden administration has fueled speculation and heightened public interest in the case. Concerns about transparency have been raised, as some believe it is essential for the public to be informed about the details of the investigation. However, the administration’s stance indicates a willingness to let the law enforcement professionals handle the matter without interference or premature disclosure of information.
As the investigation progresses, it remains to be seen how the Biden administration will address the issue and provide clarity on the ownership of the cocaine found in the White House. In the meantime, the public will have to rely on the Secret Service’s findings and await further updates from the administration regarding the outcome of their investigation.
