The ex-wife of Hunter Biden, Kathleen Buhle, spoke about her 24-year marriage with the president’s son during an interview with “Good Morning America” on ABC.
Buhle wrote a book about her marriage, called “If We Break: A Memoir of Addiction, Marriage, and Recovery.” She said the younger Biden was “struggling with a serious drug problem.”
Amy Robach asked whether pics found on Hunter Biden’s computer showing him looking “disheveled” was the husband she knew.
“No, not at all,” she replied.
“He was suffering from a severe drug addiction, and it was heartbreaking and distressing. That wasn’t the man I married.”
During their divorce, Buhle stated she gave all financial control to her ex-husband.
“It’s mortifying to confess that I gave up all financial control to my husband,” she moaned. “I liked the nice things and didn’t want to consider how expensive they were.”
Robach asked Buhle if she would testify against Hunter, who was under investigation for money laundering, tax fraud and violation of lobbying regulations.
“No,” Buhle said. “I’ve been burying my head in the sand. I’m hoping that this is a lesson that women will learn: handle your finances responsibly.”
Hunter Biden has been surrounded by controversy and accusations of corruption throughout his father’s presidency. In 2019, he was discharged from the Navy Reserve after testing positive for cocaine.
He also got into a very public legal battle with the mother of his child, who accused him of neglect. She eventually won her case and was awarded full custody of their child.
In 2020, Hunter Biden’s laptop containing incriminating emails was left at a repair shop and later obtained by the FBI. The contents of the laptop are currently being “investigated.”
Also in 2020, he was also accused of trying to use his father’s influence to help a Chinese energy company land a billion-dollar deal. Hunter Biden has denied all accusations of wrongdoing.
He is currently being investigated by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware for his tax affairs.
