The decade's most triggering comedy
Conservative talk radio host and former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino said the mystery of who sneaked cocaine into the White House is hardly a whodunnit.
Secret Service agents made the discover late Sunday in the building’s West Wing, where President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden live. An initial dispatch report said the substance, later confirmed to be cocaine, was in the library, but officials later insisted the cocaine was found in a “cubby” where guests who tour the residence leave their cell phones and other personal belongings.
“There’s absolutely ZERO chance anyone other than a family member brought that cocaine inside the White House complex,” Bongino said Wednesday. “No chance that would make it past the mag/security checkpoints. Family bypasses those.”

Hunter Biden’s battles with cocaine and crack addiction are well known, both from his own memoir and the laptop he abandoned in a Wilmington, Delaware, computer repair shop five years ago. The laptop is full of ghastly images of Hunter Biden smoking crack and cavorting with prostitutes, as well as numerous messages in which he appeared to be setting up drug deals.
Bongino wasn’t the only former White House veteran to question the White House’s changing story line and point the finger at Hunter Biden. Ari Fleischer, who was press secretary under Bush, said insiders surely know the real story.

“You have got to be kidding me,” Fleischer tweeted. “Cocaine was found at the WH and authorities aren’t saying exactly where it was found. If it’s the Old Executive Office Building, it’s likely staff. If it’s the mansion, it’s likely Hunter. Reporters do your job.”
Bongino, who was an NYPD officer in the late 1990s before beginning a 12-year stint in the Secret Service that ended in 2011, is well-versed in the inner workings of the White House. He served on the presidential detail under both presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Since leaving the service, he has authored several books, hosted a Fox News television show and both a daily podcast and radio show.
President Biden was at Camp David over the long weekend and returned on Tuesday in time to watch the fireworks with Hunter Biden from the Truman balcony.
