This White House cocaine story has really taken on a life of its own.
This should have literally been a nothing burger of a story, but the White House's lack of transparency and refusal to answer even a few simple questions has suddenly turned this into a story that just will not go away.
According to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), this is largely because White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is "deliberately telling lies," reports the Washington Examiner.
Just Tell the Truth
The timeline of the discovery alone all but discredits the idea that this cocaine belonged to Hunter Biden.
The area where it was found is open to the public and was heavily trafficked. The point is, there is no way this bag was sitting there for several days with all that traffic and law enforcement present without being discovered.
Realistically, someone dropped it Saturday afternoon during one of the last tours or Sunday at the beginning of the day.
Yet, the White House has done everything it can to avoid answering questions on this front.
To that point, Issa stated, "This administration is constantly making up new lies and not being held accountable for those lies," reports The Gazette.
Issa continued, "The White House press person and others are deliberately telling lies and not being held accountable.
"It's an area that is normally one of those you roll your eyes, but when you're talking about serious drug use, rolling the eyes isn't enough.
"There has to be accountability for this kind of a security compromise."
From a security standpoint, he is 100 percent accurate, as that powder could have just as easily been anthrax or some other poison.
Then, however, he went down the rabbit hole by implying something else. Issa stated, "I'm cynical. How is it that we've never had cocaine in the White House until we have somebody with a record of using cocaine who was in the White House just about the same time?"
Listen… if I thought there was even a remote chance that cocaine could be traced back to Hunter, I would tell you, but there is not, so please don't fall for this grandstanding.
Realistically, this mystery will never be solved, as there were just too many people and a lack of forensic or video evidence to pin it on any one person.
I am all for any investigation regarding making the security better, but in terms of continuing to investigate the person this belongs to, stop wasting money.
