Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany commented on the discovery of cocaine at the White House and allegations that it may have belonged to former addict and first son Hunter Biden during a broadcast.
In an interview with Sean Hannity, the former press secretary for President Trump addressed new allegations that the cocaine may have belonged to a “White House staffer.”
She explained, based on her own knowledge, that the location where the substance was discovered is “heavily trafficked,” and that it was likely “discovered rather quickly” due to the Secret Service’s constant surveillance of the area.
“So it couldn’t have been there for days and days,” McEnany said. “It had have been there for — I would say — minutes before someone took notice.”
McEneny criticized the current press secretary of the White House, Karine Jean-Pierre, for not being better prepared to respond to questions about the event the day before by having the most recent information from the Secret Service. The first family was not at the White House when the discovery was made, according to Jean-Pierre’s alternative explanation, which had already been established.
The White House was reportedly evacuated after officials discovered a white substance that was later determined to be cocaine.
Roads near the president’s official residence were closed by Secret Service agents, and a hazmat team from the DC Fire Department was dispatched to investigate.
“U.S. Secret Service Uniform Division Officers located an unknown item on the White House complex. As a precaution, the White House grounds were evacuated, and the DC Fire Departments Hazmat team responded,” a USSS spokesperson told Fox News.
According to Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesperson for the U.S. Secret Service, “On Sunday evening, the White House complex went into a precautionary closure as officers from the Secret Service Uniformed Division investigated an unknown item found inside a work area.”
