BREAKING: First Pictures of White House Cocaine Revealed
To everyone’s surprise, photos have been released revealing the discovery of cocaine in a phone locker at the White House that was made earlier this year. The incident, which occurred on July 2, 2023, triggered an 11-day investigation that clouded the Biden administration in scandal. This article aims to delve into the details of the discovery, the subsequent investigation, and the various speculations surrounding the incident.
On Sunday, July 2, while the Biden family, including son Hunter, was away at Camp David, a bag of white powder was found in locker No. 50 at the White House’s West Executive entrance. The discovery prompted an evacuation of the West Wing and surrounding street closures, leading to heightened security concerns. The Secret Service, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, has released photos of the bag of cocaine, providing visual evidence of the incident.

The ensuing investigation, spanning 11 days, aimed to identify the culprit behind the illicit drug’s presence in the White House. The Deputy Director of the FBI, Paul Abbate, was involved in the investigation, adding a significant level of gravity to the situation. However, the investigation was ultimately closed due to a “lack of evidence.” Despite narrowing down the list of suspects to 500, security footage was unable to determine the owner, as cameras do not face the locker area.
The lockers near the White House’s West Executive entrance are not assigned to specific personnel but are used by outside visitors to the West Wing. A source familiar with the setup revealed that guests can choose a locker and take a key. This open structure made it difficult to pinpoint the exact individual responsible for placing the cocaine in locker No. 50. The source suggested that someone taking a tour was the likeliest culprit, as they would be familiar with the location of nearby bathrooms where the contraband could have been disposed of.
Documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request included updates on the investigation in real time. These updates provided insights into the discovery and subsequent analysis of the white powdery substance. The initial test conducted by D.C. fire’s Hazmat team yielded positive results for opioids and amphetamines, while the Secret Service’s first tests were inconclusive. This discrepancy led to tension and confusion, as the Secret Service had to correct early reports about the location of the cocaine.
At the request of the Secret Service’s executive leadership, the FBI became involved in the investigation. The FBI sent the sample to a lab at Quantico for further analysis. ThermoFisher Scientific, a prominent lab, conducted a thorough test that confirmed the presence of cocaine, sodium bicarbonate, and caffeine in the substance. The FBI’s analysis of fingerprint or DNA evidence on the baggie, however, failed to determine the ownership or persons responsible for placing the item within the West Wing of the White House Complex.
Initially, there was no reported media coverage of the incident, according to Secret Service documents. However, once news reports emerged, Secret Service officials engaged in discussions with reporters, clarifying details and dispelling misinformation. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre faced questions regarding the potential involvement of a Biden family member. She emphasized that the Biden family was not present at the White House during the time of the incident and expressed frustration with irresponsible reporting.
In the aftermath of the discovery, various speculations arose regarding the source of the cocaine. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan suggested that a construction worker could have brought in the drug, as the area near the locker was undergoing renovations. This alternative explanation aimed to quell concerns about potential security breaches and underscored the ongoing construction in the White House.
The discovery of cocaine at the White House brought attention to the well-known challenges faced by the Biden family regarding drug and alcohol abuse. Hunter Biden, in particular, has openly discussed his battle with addiction, including heavy cocaine use. First daughter Ashley Biden has also struggled with drug use and sought treatment in a rehab facility. The incident reignited discussions surrounding the Biden family’s personal struggles and their impact on the administration.
