The decade's most triggering comedy
Colorado GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert said on Thursday that cocaine was not the first drug discovered at the White House during the Biden administration, according to a new report.
Boebert said that marijuana had been found at the White House twice since 2022, according to Just the News. Boebert’s comments come after the Secret Service announced that it had closed the probe into the cocaine found at the White House without any suspects.
“This is the third time that drugs have been found on the White House property since 2022, and we did not even hear about the marijuana,” she said. “I certainly did not hear about the marijuana that was found in 2022, two times, and now there’s cocaine on the property. So everything they do is to move along to the next story. They know there will be another Biden crime crisis.”
NBC News reported that uniformed division officers had previously found marijuana possessed by two White House guests. The marijuana was reportedly in quantities under Washington, D.C.’s legal limit, and the visitors were still instructed not to bring marijuana back to the White House.
Boebert was one of the lawmakers who attended a closed meeting with the Secret Service about the investigation into the cocaine after House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-KY) asked for a briefing on the incident.
“I was informed in this morning’s SCIF meeting that the Cocaine Culprit investigation will be terminated with more than 500 potential perpetrators remaining,” Boebert tweeted. “We cannot allow this to happen. The American people deserve to know who smuggled cocaine into the White House!”
The Secret Service was unable to determine a suspect after investigators reviewed surveillance footage and visitor logs, determining that both surveillance footage and forensic evidence could not generate any leads.
According to a source who spoke with NBC, the leading theory is that someone on a tour left the illicit substance at the White House.
The explanation from the Secret Service left many Republicans unsatisfied, with some suggesting a coverup.
“Just left the most ridiculous meeting of all time with the Secret Service on the cocaine that was found in the White House,” Tennessee Rep. Tim Burchett said after the briefing. “It turns out – they don’t know who did it. The investigation is going to be over at the end of the week, and they’re not going to find out who did it. And that’s basically it.”
“Another coverup,” he added. “You know, it’s the most secure building in the entire world. Nobody, not even the press, goes in there without them knowing.”
Boebert said the investigation yielded no results “because everything in this administration is about covering up for the Biden crime family.”
The discovery prompted widespread speculation that the cocaine could have belonged to Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s troubled son who has battled drug addiction in the past and has recently been seen at the White House. The younger Biden, who was kicked out of the Navy Reserves in 2014 after testing positive for cocaine, is seen smoking crack and buying cocaine in numerous images and messages on the laptop he abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop.
