Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley called the Secret Service’s shutdown of the White House cocaine investigation a “cover-up” and boldly asserted that the drugs must have belonged to Hunter Biden or someone “very close to the president.”
Haley appeared at Friday’s Family Leadership Summit in Des Moines, Iowa, where she sat down for an interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Carlson was blaming, without evidence, the Biden administration for sabotaging the Nord Stream pipeline when Haley, the U.N. ambassador under former President Donald Trump, said the White House was not being “responsible for anything” by pointing to the May 2 discovery. July. of cocaine in the West Wing.
“So I’ll tell you, I strongly believe this is a cover-up for … Hunter or someone very close to the president and they don’t want to say who it is,” the former South Carolina governor told the crowd. .
He rejected the White House’s claim that “hundreds” of people had access to the area, arguing that “it is the most secure area in the world.”

‘This is where, I in the National Security Council, with other members of the Security Council met with the president, we discussed the most secure things. I know the area where the locker is. People don’t just walk in and out of there,” he said.
National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said last Friday that the area has been under construction, so the Situation Room, which is nearby on that floor, is currently not in use.
Haley seemed unaware of that factor as she narrowed the perpetrator down to a short list of suspects.
‘It is the president, vice president, cabinet, cabinet members or deputy directors. No one else is going in there,’ Haley insisted. There is some staff, but it is immediate.
‘I couldn’t take any member of staff except my deputy. The president would take his chief of staff. Very limited,” he recalled.
‘Then for them to say they don’t know who it was. Don’t tell me there are no cameras there. There are absolutely cameras in there,’ added the former ambassador.
He also pointed to the discovery of marijuana at the White House, which the Secret Service said Thursday occurred twice in 2022.
Hunter Biden returned to the West Coast on Thursday after spending July 4 at the White House. On Friday, Nikki Haley joined a chorus of Republicans claiming, without evidence, that the White House cocaine belonged to her first child.
‘Why didn’t you do anything about it?’ she pondered. ‘Who has time to go into the homeland security SCIF, open the locker and put drugs inside?’
“As if that were a bigger problem,” he argued. “Because if you have someone doing cocaine deciding on national security, that’s what worries me.”
On Thursday, the Secret Service said the investigation into the cocaine had been concluded and they could not identify the person who brought it to campus and lost it in a cubicle at the West Executive Avenue entrance.
A Secret Service statement said “no surveillance video footage was found to provide investigative leads or any other means for investigators to identify who may have deposited the substance found in this area.”
Investigators were also unable to find any fingerprints or DNA on the bag, so they could not “compare the evidence against the known pool of individuals.”
Also Thursday, Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, sent a cease-and-desist letter to Trump’s legal team asking the former president to tone down his rhetoric and also asking Trump to stop saying that cocaine from the Casa Blanca belonged to the first son.
the republicans have he claimed the cocaine belonged to Hunter due to his well-documented history of drug abuse and addiction, including in his memoirs and in photographs on the so-called ‘h*** laptop’.
