Hunter Biden’s ex-wife says she felt left out of the Biden family

  • Kathleen Buhle wrote in her book that not coming under Secret Service protection was a “sore point.”
  • She wrote about how her husband and children were given command, but not her.
  • Buhle wrote that the expulsion made her feel “not ‘family'” or “Biden blood.”

Hunter Biden’s ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle, wrote in her book that she felt left out of the Biden family after she was not placed under Secret Service protection.

In an excerpt from Buhle’s forthcoming book, If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction, and Healing, reported by The Guardian, she described meeting a Secret Service agent in 2009 before Joe Biden took office as vice president.

“Hunter and the girls are each assigned a detail. Two agents are with them 24 hours a day,” the Secret Service agent told Buhle, according to her book, adding that she would be “picked up and included in any plan” in the event of an emergency.

Per The Guardian, Buhle wrote that she was “embarrassed” by the news. “Did that mean I was less important than my husband and children? What I heard in his words: I wasn’t really a Biden,” she wrote.

Buhle’s conversation with the Secret Service agent also reminded her of an incident where she was barred from a family photo by her husband’s aunt who asked for a picture with “Biden blood only,” she wrote, according to the outlet.

According to Buhle’s book, she later asked her husband to opt out of Secret Service reporting, but he didn’t, telling her, “Kathleen, it’s always been like that. It’s not personal. In-laws never had protection. ”

While understanding the situation, Buhle wrote that the lack of protection from the Secret Service “remained a sore point” for her. Per The Guardian, she also recalled asking her husband not to walk in front of her as it would cause his security detail to do the same.

“It was another reminder that I wasn’t ‘family’, an echo of the call to get out of the picture. Just Biden blood,” Buhle wrote, according to the outlet.

“Maybe part of me knew that just to stay in my marriage, I’d have to fight like never before,” she added to The Guardian.

Buhle was married to Hunter Biden for 24 years, during which time he had an affair with his brother’s widow, Hallie Biden. The couple, who have three daughters, separated in 2017.

The Secret Service website says it protects the president, vice president, and their immediate families, but does not outline protection plans beyond those individuals. Hunter Biden is now back under the protection of the Secret Service, who are paying over $30,000 a month to protect him at his Malibu home.
