After a strange white powder discovered at the White House over the weekend tested positive for cocaine, the former president of the United States reportedly lashed out on Wednesday at President Biden, his son Hunter Biden, Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith, and the media.
The Secret Service reported that a suspicious white powder was discovered in an area of the White House on Sunday during a regular search, leading to a temporary “precautionary closure” and evacuation of the structure.
The powder was determined to be nonhazardous and sent for further testing, which confirmed the material was cocaine.
As of Wednesday, the Secret Service was still looking into the cause and manner of how it entered the White House.
“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 & Joe Biden. But watch, the Fake News Media will soon start saying that the amount found was “very small,” & it wasn’t really COCAINE, but rather common ground up Aspirin, & the story will vanish. Has Deranged Jack Smith, the crazy, Trump hating Special Prosecutor, been seen in the area of the COCAINE? He looks like a crackhead to me!”
Karine Jean-Pierre, the press secretary for the White House, did not make any assumptions about who could have left the drug on Wednesday, but she did remark that it was discovered in a tourist-friendly, “heavily traveled” location.
At the time of the event, Biden was not present at the White House.
Trump also questioned Smith, who was nominated by Merrick Garland last year to supervise the DOJ’s investigations of the previous president, in his Wednesday post.
Smith is in charge of an investigation into the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021, as well as attempts to obstruct the transition of power following the 2020 election.
Smith headed the investigation into Trump’s handling of sensitive data, which led to a 37-count indictment on federal criminal charges.
