This week, the Biden administration steadfastly refused to acknowledge that the cocaine located inside the White House didn’t belong to President Biden or to Hunter Biden, his son.
Andrew Bates, the deputy press secretary for the White House, stated to reporters this week that he didn’t have any fresh information to provide.
“This is a matter we take seriously,” he declared. “The Secret Service’s law enforcement officers are conducting an investigation after this material was found in a busy location. In whatever way that is required, we are ready to help. Beyond that, I’ll respect their decision-making process.”
Then, a journalist questioned Bates about recent remarks made by former President Trump, who implied yesterday that the drugs belonged to the president, the president’s son Hunter, or to special counsel Jack Smith.
The reporter stated that “Trump has recently posted some pretty bizarre remarks on social media. One of these was the claim that either the President or the son of the President had used the cocaine that was discovered in the White House.”
The reporter questioned, “Are you able to say that isn’t the case, and that they do not have any connection to them?”
“We’ve got to be careful with the Hatch Act, so I don’t have an answer to that,” Bates remarked. “What I can say is that I have observed what appears to be a general increase of annoyance emanating from that corner.”
The question regarding if the Secret Service along with the White House will “commit to openness” in sharing the specifics of their investigation into who smuggled the cocaine into the White House was presented to Bates at the conclusion of the conversation aboard Air Force One.
Bates replied, “I’m going to defer to the team of Secret Service agents who are handling this. I just won’t speculate about it in hypotheticals. If you need anything further, I would advise you to get in touch with them.”
