New reports show Hunter Biden appeared to brag about doing drugs with the late Washington D.C. Mayor Marion Barry. According to reports, leaked audio from Biden’s laptop showed he touted smoking with Barry during a conversation with a friend.
Additionally, Biden can be heard recalling that he smoked crack with the former D.C. mayor at least once at a bar Barry used to frequent near Georgetown University. Biden graduated from Georgetown in 1992 and has been known for his decades-long struggle with drug addiction.
The audio file was obtained from a hard drive copied from a damaged laptop that was left at a repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware in April 2019 and was allegedly never retrieved.
Barry was notably arrested for crack possession in the early 1990’s as part of an FBI sting operation and served six months behind bars. Succeeding his release, he was elected for a fourth term as mayor and later denied ever having smoked crack. Barry passed away later that year.
