Kathleen Buhle, Hunter Biden’s ex-wife, dished on their marriage in a tell-all memoir called, “If We Break.”
“Biden and Buhle were married for 24 years before filing for divorce, and naturally, there was some media interest given President Joe Biden’s prominent role in American politics. Biden and Buhle met in 1992 and tied the knot in 1993. By 2017, they were getting divorced after being separated for two years. The couple had three daughters, and in the beginning, they were madly in love. Now, Biden is married to Melissa Cohen, a South African filmmaker, and Buhle is taking back her life,” The List reported.
“While Kathleen Buhle never felt rejected by the Bidens, she didn’t feel entirely accepted, either. In her memoir “If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing,” Buhle recalled meeting Joe Biden for the first time, saying that he made her feel incredibly welcome and accepted and took to calling her his daughter. “Honey, my boy tells me he loves you, so that means I love you too,” the report added.
“The first time she felt a bit out of place, however, was when she was spending the day with the Biden family after she and Hunter Biden got married. Her husband’s aunt, who was taking pictures, called for a snap that featured “Biden blood only.” While this phrase would continue to haunt Buhle throughout her marriage, she started to feel like she wasn’t truly a part of the family when Joe Biden became vice president during former President Barack Obama’s tenure,” the outlet continued.
Buhle was questioned about Hunte Biden’s financial situation and raised eyebrows when she claimed to have never been involved in any of her and Biden’s financial dealings.
She claimed that Biden handled all of their finances and that she had no idea what was going on. She thought ignorance was bliss at the time, and she held that belief throughout their marriage.
Now, some of what Kathleen Buhle revealed is at the center of Hunter Biden being put under investigation.
“Divorce lawyers for Hunter Biden and his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle were aware of money hitting Hunter’s bank account from a Romania deal, emails show, appearing to contradict Buhle’s previous claims she had her ‘head buried in the sand’ when it came to Hunter’s finances,” it was reported.
James Comer, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said on Thursday that fresh bank records his panel anticipates obtaining would show that the Biden family collected as much as $30 million from foreigners.
“We have more bank records coming in, we’re going to exceed $10 million this week. And I think we’ll get up to between $20 and 30 million,” Comer said when asked by Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo about how much money the committee has been able to identify as being obtained by President Biden’s family members from overseas sources.
“Comer has identified nine members of the Biden clan — including first son Hunter Biden, the president’s brother James Biden, his brother’s wife, Sara Biden, the widow of the president’s late son, Hallie Biden, Hunter’s current wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, and Hunter’s ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle — as having allegedly received foreign income,” the New York Post reported.
The panel obtained the records from Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, HSBC, and Cathay Bank after Comer issued subpoenas.
“We’re going to continue to follow the money,” Comer vowed. “This is going to be hard for Joe Biden to explain,” he said of the evidence of influence-peddling his committee has uncovered.
Comer provided an update late last month about the panel’s ongoing probes into the president and his family regarding alleged influence-peddling schemes, saying that GOP investigators have managed to obtain a wealth of new information involving monetary transfers from several more countries.
“We have bank records that came in this week that we’re going through that we think are going to show more [money wire transfers] from more countries,” Comer said. “Remember, we just disclosed two countries thus far: China and Romania. There are still some more Chinese wires that we have yet to present to the American people.
“And there are a lot of wires, mysterious wires from Ukraine and Russia, that we’re about to expose. So, this is just the beginning for the Bidens. All the Department of Justice is doing is standing in our way,” he said, adding that despite all of the obstacles being put up by various federal agencies, including the FBI, “we are still producing results every day that show this family, the president of the United States’ family, has received millions and millions of dollars from our adversaries all over the world, and they can’t explain why.”
“They can’t explain what they did to produce that money,” he noted further.
