Between 400 and 500 political staff work in the West Wing of the White House. The political appointees working in that area have been hired since Joe Biden was sworn into office in 2021, except for Secret Security officers. All must go through security screening.
The cocaine discovered in the White House on Sunday could have been brought in by any of staff who have access to that part of the building, including Secret Security itself.
Or it may have been brought in by Hunter Biden, who was last at the White House West Wing on Friday, before he and the president went to Camp David for the weekend on Marine One.
A felony has been committed at the White House. The seat of government is a crime scene. Will the public be told what the amount of cocaine was, where it was located, and when? Will the public get the full story?
According to Washington, D.C. law, DC legislation, cocaine is classified under the same category as other Schedule I substances, similar to heroin, PCP, methamphetamines, and other highly addictive or hazardous drugs. At this writing on July 4, the Secret Service has not disclosed the amount or exact location that the cocaine was found but media is widely reporting it was found in the working area of the West Wing.
The most discreet way to commit a non-political felony at the White House is to bring drugs onto the premises, since everything brought into the premises are run through a scanner for weapons, not drugs. While marijuana became legal in Washington DC, back in 2013 Snoop Dogg smoked pot in restroom at the White House, while he was visiting President Barack Obama. Pot was still illegal.
A similar instance occurred in the 1970s when country singer-songwriter Willie Nelson smoked pot on the White House roof with one of President Jimmy Carter’s sons.
In the case of First Son Hunter Biden, he is an unconvicted felon, as an admitted illegal drug user, possibly recovering, and a regular visitor to the West Wing, with perhaps less security scrutiny than the paid staff.
