Florida Governor Ron DeSantis criticized the Biden administration’s handling of the discovery of cocaine at the White House, stating that it exemplifies the inequity within the justice system. In an interview with Newsmax, DeSantis expressed his concerns about the Department of Justice, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and the FBI’s approach, suggesting they are being lenient by allowing the U.S. Secret Service to lead the investigation into illegal narcotics at the White House.
DeSantis appeared on “The Chris Salcedo Show” and remarked, “I think with this, they’re just treating the Biden administration with kid gloves. And, unfortunately, that’s what we’ve come to expect out of this federal government: That they just have two standards of how they pursue the law.”
He further highlighted the disparity in the government’s actions, pointing out how the Biden administration rigorously investigates political opponents and collaborates with Big Tech to censor speech, while failing to launch a thorough investigation into the cocaine incident at the White House.
DeSantis questioned the lack of mobilization by the FBI and DOJ in response to the discovery, stating, “I kind of feel like if there were a Republican in the White House, you’d have swarms of DEA and FBI agents trying to get to the bottom of who brought that into the White House.”
The governor continued to criticize the Biden administration, referring to the incident as “white powdergate.” He sarcastically commented, “We’ve seen for over two years the Biden administration blowing it on a whole host of issues. I guess this means it’s even more literal than we had thought previously.”
