On Friday, a January 2019 phone call between Hunter Biden and a friend came to the public's attention. In this call Hunter brags about how he used to smoke crack with the now-deceased former DC Mayor Marion Berry.
Barry, who died in 2014, was made infamous in the news back in 1990 for having been caught smoking the cocaine derivative while in office as Mayor of DC.
"I actually smoked crack with Marion Barry; I swear to f*cking god," said Hunter, as one can hear in the audio, as reported by the Daily Mail.
"That was in Georgetown, and he used to go to a place right next to The Guards [a local establishment]. I was, a sophomore, I guess? That was... I was a junior? when that happened," continues Biden.
"He used to come there and drink like late, late. And I would be there, and he would go to the bathroom."
This revealed audio also directly contradicts the text of Hunter's book Beautiful Things, which, in one part, states:
"It scared me straight – for a while. I owned up to it and didn't do coke again that summer or, really, more than a couple of times in college."
Hunter had been arrested at the age of 18 for cocaine possession and managed to negotiate a plea deal where he underwent an intervention and probation and got the arrest expunged from his record.
Hunter is currently 51 years old at the time of this writing, so this would have put the incident very close to the time of Berry's 1990 scandal, which wound up landing him in a federal prison for six months after being caught by the FBI.
