The ex-wife of Hunter Biden, Kathleen Buhle, opened up about their relationship in her autobiography “If We Break.” The timing couldn’t be worse for the first son as a federal investigation into him has heated up this week.
“Buhle and Hunter got married back in 1993, split in 2015, and finalized their divorce in April 2017 — weeks after Hunter revealed that he was in a relationship with his late brother Beau Biden’s widow, Hallie Biden. That relationship ended in 2019, and in May 2019, Hunter wed South African filmmaker Melissa Cohen and the couple welcomed their first child together, a son named Beau, in March 2020,” People reported last year.
The book presents Buhle’s perspective on her divorce from Hunter Biden and the courtroom proceedings that followed their breakup. They divorced after almost 24 years of marriage, having tied the knot in 1993. They have three daughters together: Naomi, Maisy, and Finnegan.
“When my marriage ended, I felt like I’d lost my sense of who I was,” she said. “Anyone who has seen addiction ruin a relationship, or been through infidelity and divorce, can tell you how devastating it feels. But what I also realized through those crushing experiences is that I needed to find a way to stand on my own.”
“In February 2017, Buhle alleged in a legal filing that her estranged ex had spent money on drugs, alcohol, prostitutes, and strip clubs. Buhle’s book doesn’t shy away from those previous disclosures; instead, it will shine a light on the “heavy toll” addiction can take on relationships, according to the book’s publisher,” the report stated.
Hunter Biden is currently the subject of an investigation as a result of some of Kathleen Buhle’s revelations.
There are more questions about whether Joe Biden was aware of or involved in any of Hunter’s shady business dealings while he was the vice president after recently made public emails from Hunter’s laptop reveal he referred to his longtime business partner Eric Schwerin as a “close confidant and counsel” to Biden.
In a February 2014 email exchange, Schwerin requested Hunter to evaluate a letter of recommendation he had prepared for Joe Biden.
“Can you take a quick look at the attached? I am going to send it to your Dad (via Kathy) tomorrow and wanted to make sure you think this isn’t too over the top and that you think your Dad would be comfortable sending it,” wrote Schwerin, who served as the president of Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca Partners investment fund, which has now been resolved.
The New York Post detailed the concerning correspondence Buhle provided:
The attached file was titled “JRB CFR Rec,” an apparent reference to the Council on Foreign Relations. The email, posted online by the nonprofit research group Marco Polo USA, also named Joe Biden’s longtime executive assistant, Kathy Chung.
Hunter responded to the message on Feb. 22, telling Schwerin the letter was “good” before suggesting that he “tone down the ‘he and my son’ parts.”
“I think it’s better to just focus on the fact that you have been a close confidant and counsel to him and just say somewhere something like ‘as a business partner with my son at Rosemont Seneca…,’” Hunter said.
Several hours later, Schwerin wrote back, adding, “That was one part I was unsure of — was trying to make sure the reader understood there was a real relationship and that it wasn’t just a letter he was writing for a friend of a friend or something.”
Biden has stated time and time again that he has “never spoken” with Hunter about the family’s international business interests.
Other emails found on the laptop seem to confirm Schwerin’s involvement in the financial affairs of the Biden family, including his assistance in moving money around for Joe and Hunter Biden.
Kathleen Buhle, Hunter’s ex-wife, acknowledged that Schwerin had managed “almost every aspect” of the family’s financial affairs.
“By now, Eric had managed almost every aspect of our financial lives, so our relationship was an awkward one. One born out of mutual need, perhaps. But I trusted him,” Buhle wrote, describing an encounter with Schwerin at a cocktail party in the Dominican Republic, the New York Post reported.
