Former President Donald Trump reiterated his criticism of the probe into the discovery of cocaine at the White House. Trump’s statement came after speculation from many Republicans that President Joe Biden’s son Hunter may have left the substance.
The discovery of about one gram of the drug on July 2 was followed by an investigation by the Secret Service. Following the law enforcement probe, the Secret Service announced that it was unable to uncover who left the cocaine in the executive mansion.
Trump described the part of the White House where the cocaine was discovered as “very private.”
“You have more cameras in that area than any place probably in the world. You have the Situation Room,” he said. “I never even thought of it in terms of this, but probably the most important room anywhere in the world. There’s no more important room — wars are decided.”
The former president said that the Secret Service agents “know everything” and “know who,” also saying that he has “great respect” for the agency.
The former president was not the only 2024 contender to imply that the investigation was a cover-up of Hunter Biden’s conduct.
Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) said that she strongly believed that “this is a coverup for either Hunter, or someone very close to the president, and they don’t want to say who it is.”
The discovery of the cocaine came after a visit by the president’s son prior to the July 4 holiday. Furthermore, Hunter Biden was at the White House during the Independence Day fireworks, walking behind the president.
It looks like a THIRD Trump indictment is imminent. The Secret Service can’t even find who brought COCAINE into the White House. But yeah, our criminal justice system is completely unbiased. pic.twitter.com/qpg0GXqtLP

The official explanation from federal officials also came around the same time that a photo purportedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop showed the president’s son smoking what appeared to be crack cocaine while driving.
The photo from 2018 reportedly was taken by the younger Biden himself while driving in Virginia.
Separately, the laptop also had a 2019 photo that appears to show Hunter Biden driving a Porsche at 172 miles per hour during a trip to Las Vegas. The president’s son was allegedly on his way to meet with prostitutes following taking the photo.
