‘YOU GOT CAUGHT’: Cotton Blasts Biden Admin for Crack Pipe Flip Flop, Smearing Free Beacon

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.17.22

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) is demanding answers from the Biden Administration on its plan to distribute crack pipes to vulnerable communities —and then going back on that plan and labeling the report from the Washington Free Beacon as “misinformation.”

Cotton released an official statement and wrote a letter to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra:

Cotton Demands Explanation Behind HHS “Safe” Crack Pipe Lie

Washington, D.C. — Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) sent a letter to Secretary Xavier Becerra at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) demanding clarification on the department’s reversal to distribute taxpayer-funded crack pipes as part of its harm reduction initiative. Cotton also condemned the department’s accusation that the Washington Free Beacon was spreading “misinformation” regarding the “safe smoking kits.”

In part, Cotton wrote, “I’m writing about your department’s smear of the Washington Free Beacon’s report on your ‘safe smoking kits’—kits which, until last week, included taxpayer-funded crack pipes.”

“What happened is obvious. HHS planned to allow the safe smoking kits to include crack pipes. You got caught, scrambled under pressure, and falsely accused the Free Beacon of ‘misinformation.’”

Cotton posted on Twitter, asking the White House for the truth:

“When asked about Biden’s crack pipe funding program, @PressSec meant to say, ‘because we got caught, we are NO LONGER providing funding for crack pipes.’ The White House needs to tell the truth about Biden’s crack pipe funding program.”
