In her June 14 book, If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing, Kathleen Buhle recounts how she discovered that her then-husband, Hunter Biden, the president's son, was having an affair with Hallie, Beau's widow.
“‘Debbie,’ Finny said once Naomi [their eldest] was on speakerphone, ‘can you tell her? She writes, "We can't." "Debbie looked me in the eye and calmly said, ‘Kathleen, Hunter’s having an affair with Hallie.’"
When Buhle questioned how they knew, Finnegan answered, “We found his phone,” and Naomi added, “There were text messages between them.” “From now on, Kathleen, no more secrets,” the therapist warned Buhle. I told the girls, "From now on, you'll tell them the truth."
In 2017, the 53-year-old D.C. nonprofit executive divorced Biden after 24 years of marriage. Her memoir chronicles their marriage's deterioration due to Biden's multiple addictions, the financial problems they caused, and his involvement with his sister-in-law when his brother died of brain cancer.
