Will justice truly be served?
In a recent statement, former President Trump expressed strong criticism towards President Biden, Hunter Biden, Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith, and the media. Trump’s comments were made in response to the discovery of a suspicious white powder at the White House, which was later confirmed to be cocaine.
Trump questioned the credibility of claims that the cocaine found in the West Wing, near the Oval Office, could be intended for anyone other than Hunter and Joe Biden. He anticipated that the media would downplay the incident, suggesting they might label the amount as insignificant or even assert that it was actually ground-up aspirin. Trump made these remarks on Truth Social.
In transcript provided by The Hill, Trump wrote, “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,” he added.
Following a routine sweep on Sunday, the Secret Service detected the white powder in a specific area of the White House, leading to a temporary closure and evacuation of the premises as a precautionary measure. Upon further testing, it was determined that the substance was cocaine and posed no immediate threat.
The Secret Service is currently investigating how the cocaine entered the White House, focusing on the cause and manner of the incident. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refrained from speculating on the identity of the individual responsible but noted that the location where the drug was found is accessible to visitors and experiences significant foot traffic.
President Biden was not present at the White House during the time of the incident.
In addition to his comments about the cocaine discovery, Trump raised suspicions about special counsel Jack Smith’s potential involvement. Smith, appointed by Merrick Garland to oversee investigations into Trump last year, has been leading multiple high-profile probes, including Trump’s handling of classified documents and the investigation into the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack and attempts to interfere with the transfer of power after the 2020 election. Trump made derogatory remarks about Smith, likening his appearance to that of a crackhead.
Looking ahead, both Biden and Trump are actively engaged in political activities. Biden is seeking re-election to the White House in 2024, while Trump aims to secure another term after losing to Biden in the 2020 election. Both candidates currently hold favorable positions in their respective party’s primary polls.
