Hunter Biden this week promised to stop working on the boards of foreign countries if his father Joe wins the 2020 election.
Hunter has been accused of using his father’s position as Vice President to benefit from business dealings in China and Ukraine.
“Despite extensive scrutiny, at no time has any law enforcement agency, either domestic or foreign, alleged that Hunter engaged in wrongdoing at any point during his five-year term” serving as a board member for Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, explained Hunter’s lawyer George Mesires.
Hunter’s obscure work for Burisma had been the subject of an investigation in Ukraine, but the case was dropped after then-Vice President Joe Biden threatened to withhold money from Ukraine unless the prosecutor general was fired.
Joe Biden says the move had nothing to do with his son, and Hunter continued to rake in a massive paycheck from Burisma until April 2019.
Hunter Biden also serves on the board for Chinese-backed private equity company BHR, but plans to resign by Halloween. According to Mr. Mesires, Hunter has received no compensation for the job.
To this day, Hunter claims he never discussed his business activities with his father.
“Hunter always understood that his father would be guided, entirely and unequivocally, by established US policy, regardless of its effects on Hunter’s professional interests,” reads a statement published by Mesires. “He never anticipated the barrage of false charges against both him and his father by the President of the United States.”
This summer, Trump asked the Ukrainian President to revisit the Biden investigation. Democrats used the request to launch an impeachment inquiry, after which Trump publicly asked China to investigate Hunter based on suspicions he walked away with $1.5 billion after a visit to Beijing in 2013.
Author’s Note: Sounds like Hunter is admitting to making a living on his father’s position. Now, he’s apologizing in hopes that all of this won’t affect his father’s presidential campaign.
Editor’s Note: Any Republican candidate would have been forced to quit the Presidential race by now. But it is inevitable that he will quit. The other candidates will eventually begin their attacks on him more and more until his numbers fall to zero.
Update: Hunter Biden has resigned from the board of the Chinese company he was involved in. But he still owns a big share and is still in a position to profit. Hmmmmm…
