Former President Trump took a shot at the Biden family after cocaine was found at the White House over the weekend.
“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,” he wrote Wednesday on his social media site Truth Social.
“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 theorized.
The former president then set his sight on Special Counsel Jack Smith, whose office recently indicted him on charges related to handling of classified documents. Trump asked if Smith had been seen in the vicinity of the drugs, claiming that he “looks like a crackhead to me!”

The former president has previously lashed out at Smith, calling him a “sick puppet” for Attorney General Merrick Garland and President Biden, saying Smith “should be DEFUNDED & put out to rest.”
“Where are the White House SECURITY TAPES, like the ones I openly and happily gave to Deranged Jack Smith, which will quickly show where the Cocaine in the White House came from??? They already know the answer, but probably don’t like it!” Trump asserted later on Wednesday.

Fox News Digital reached out to the White House for comment on Trump’s remarks, but it did not immediately respond.
The Department of Justice declined to comment on the matter.

“Where this was discovered is a heavily-traveled area where many White House – West Wing, I should be even more specific, West Wing visitors come through this particular area, I just don’t have anything more to share,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Wednesday.

She said the Secret Service is conducting an investigation and that the White House has “confidence” that the agency will find out what happened. Biden, she stressed, “thinks it’s very important to get to the bottom of this.”
