With tests confirming Wednesday that the suspicious white substance found at the White House over the weekend was, in fact, cocaine, the Biden administration and its establishment media mouthpieces have been in overdrive trying to give the impression anybody could have left the drug inside one of the most secure buildings in the United States.
But for those who’ve actually worked inside the building and for the Secret Service, there’s likely only a small group that could have been involved.
Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino published a Twitter post on Wednesday declaring flatly that it was someone in the Biden clan. “There’s absolutely ZERO chance anyone other than a family member brought that cocaine inside the White House complex,” Bongino wrote. “No chance that would make it past the mag/security checkpoints. Family bypasses those.”
Ari Fleischer, the first press secretary in the George W. Bush administration, used a Twitter post to blast a New York Times report that used the term “work area” to describe the site where the cocaine was found. “What gibberish,” he wrote. “A West Wing ‘work area’? With the exception of the WH Mess and the bathrooms, the entire West Wing is a work area. Where exactly was the cocaine found? In whose office? In the Sit Room? In the private office next to the Oval?
The New York Times tried to answer those questions in a different report on Wednesday (written by the same reporter), citing a “person familiar with the investigation” who said “the baggie was found near an area where guests are screened for security and leave their phones in small cubbies.” The implication, of course, is that a visitor might have had the drug, got spooked at the prospect of it being discovered, and dropped it somewhere hoping it might not be seen.
But on Fox News on Wednesday, Fleischer raised questions about that idea, too. “Right when you walk into the West Wing there is a little cubby right there,” Fleischer told Fox News host Jason Chaffetz, according to RealClearPolitics. “Usually it is manned by a Secret Service uniformed division officer. So when you go in and hand your phone and hand your possessions to them, you don’t put it in the cubby yourself. You give it to the Secret Service. “So I cannot imagine the Secret Service uniformed division officer being handed a bag of cocaine for him to store in the little cubby. So the question is, at what time of day did someone go into put it there and who could that have been?”
Yeeeeeaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.........my money is on ole "one nostril" Hunter.
