Under scrutiny for dirty dealings, Hunter Biden resigns the board of a Chinese equity company.
- Biden admitted in the sitdown with ABC News that “I think is was poor judgment on my part” to become involved in overseas ventures that have complicated his father Joe Biden’s run for president.
- Hunter Biden as become the focus of intense criticism over his foreign business relationships in Ukraine and China. Trump faces an impeachment inquiry over pressuring Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.
During his first television interview since his father announced a 2020 presidential run, Hunter Biden admitted that his status as the son of a sitting vice president helped him gain access to company boards that would have otherwise been unavailable to him.
“I think it is impossible for me to be on any of the boards you just mentioned without saying I’m the son of the Vice President of the United States,” Hunter Biden said.
Biden also said he probably would not have been asked to be on the board of Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company that paid him $50,000 per month despite a lack of expertise in the field, if his name had not been Biden.
“Probably not. I don’t think there’s a lot of things that would have happened if my last name wasn’t Biden,” he said.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has repeatedly denied speaking to his son about business dealings in foreign countries. Hunter Biden admitted during the same interview he had in fact talked to his father.
Sure sounds like trading money for political influence. Quite swampy.
In the meantime, Joe Biden isn’t interested in answering any questions about his son’s influence peddling.
WATCH: Joe Biden explodes when a reporter asks a very simple question:
"How was your role as Vice President in charge of policy in Ukraine and your son's job in Ukraine, how is that not a conflict of interest?"
Biden: "I'm not going to respond to that!"

“It’s not a conflict of interest. There’s been no indication of any conflict of interest from Ukraine or anywhere else. Period. I’m not going to respond to that,” Biden raged during a press event earlier this month when pressed by a reporter.
The Biden campaign has also publicly berated news outlets for reporting on Hunter Biden’s questionable income.
