White House Press Secretary Denounces Irresponsible Speculation Regarding Cocaine Found on Premises

Date: Friday, July 7, 2023– In a press briefing held at the White House on Friday, the White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, strongly criticized the spreading of baseless rumors suggesting the involvement of the Biden family in the discovery of cocaine at the White House. Jean-Pierre labeled such speculation as “irresponsible” and called for responsible reporting.

Responding to a reporter’s question about whether she could rule out the Biden family’s responsibility for the illicit substance, Jean-Pierre expressed her frustration with the unfounded claims surrounding the incident. She emphasized that the Biden family was not present at the White House during the time in question, reiterating information already reported by various media outlets.

“I have been very clear,” Jean-Pierre stated firmly. “I was clear two days ago when talking about this over and over again as I was being asked a question. As you know, and media outlets reported this, the Biden family was not here. They were not here. They were at Camp David. They were not here Friday. They were not here Saturday. They were not here Sunday. They were not even here Monday. They came back on Tuesday.”

The press secretary concluded her remarks by asserting that asking such a question was “incredibly irresponsible” and declined to provide further comments on the matter.

The discovery of cocaine at the White House has raised concerns, but the press secretary’s remarks aim to dispel any unfounded speculation and remind the public of the factual information surrounding the incident.

The Secret Service discovered the cocaine on White House grounds Sunday evening and are currently conducting an investigation with DNA testing and fingerprint analysis in an attempt to find the suspect, CNN reported. The powder was found in a Ziploc bag “in a cubby used by visitors to store cellphones and other personal items in an area near the West Executive entryway on the ground floor of the West Wing,” according to CBS News.

Former President Donald Trump floated Wednesday President Joe Biden or his son Hunter could be responsible.

Deputy White House press secretary Andrew Bates said Thursday he could not address a question on Trump’s allegation due to the Hatch Act, but he has noticed “some increasing frustration coming from that corner in general” due to the success of Biden’s policies.

Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung said Bates’ answer was “stupid.”

“Maybe Andrew Bates is outing himself as a suspect if he’s going to say stupid things like that,” Cheung told the Daily Caller.
