Hunter Biden told his therapist in 2018 that his lover and his brother’s widow, Hallie Biden, had left his .38 pistol in a supermarket trash can – triggering a police investigation.
Hunter claimed that when Delaware police found the weapon, “ the FBI and the Secret Service ” became involved, and that Hallie told agents she took the gun because she was “ afraid of the kids ” and “ because they was afraid that I would hurt myself because of my drug and alcohol problem, ‘in texts found on his abandoned laptop.
A copy of a police report obtained from the news site Politics confirmed the October 23, 2018 incident in Wilmington.
The Secret Service told the site they had no records of agents investigating the incident, and Joe Biden, who was not under their protection at the time, said he was unaware of their involvement.
But Hunter’s texting allegations that the agency was involved are echoed by two sources who spoke to Politico.
In October 2018, Hallie Biden threw a gun she found in Hunter Biden’s pickup truck. She was afraid he would commit suicide there, he later told police. She then went to collect it, but it was gone and then the police got involved
In texts obtained by DailyMail.com, Hunter messaged his therapist to tell him about the ordeal. She stole the gun from the lock of my truck and tossed a garbage can upstairs at Jansens. Then he told me it was my problem to deal with, ‘Hunter wrote
A source said Secret Service agents asked the Wilmington, Delaware gun store owner, where Hunter bought the .38 for the sales paper.
The source, who, according to the site, was aware of the episode firsthand, said the shop owner, Ron Palmieri, declined to hand over the papers because he feared the agents wanted to hide Hunter’s ownership of the weapon.
The source said Palmieri instead later turned the documents over to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

A second source reportedly informed by the Secret Service confirmed the story on the site.
“ Did I tell you what she did with my 38, ” Hunter wrote in December 2018 in a text message to his therapist, found on his abandoned laptop. “Taken out of the truck’s safe and put in the paper bag and thrown in the trash can at the local grocery store. For no reason.
And I was shocked to see it missing 10 minutes after she took it and when she went back to get it after I terrified her, it was gone, which led to a state police investigation of me. True story… But really on top of the full open trash can. ‘
Hunter echoed the story in a three-way text with Hallie and his therapist in January 2019, claiming that the FBI and the U.S. Secret Service were involved.

When the police, the FBI, the Secret Service came on the scene, she said she took it from me because she was afraid I would hurt myself because of my drug and alcohol problem and our volatile relationship and that she was afraid of the kids. No kidding really, the cop kept me convinced that Hallie was suggesting she was afraid of me. ‘
