Hunter Biden Admits He "Probably Wouldn't" Have Got Ukrainian Board Seat Without VP Father Joe

Hunter Biden has finally emerged from 'hiding' just four days after President Trump's campaign had "Where's Hunter" t-shirts. 

In an interview with ABC News, the son of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former VP Joe Biden denied any wrongdoing in Ukraine and China, though he acknowledged that he exercised poor judgement in maintaining those associations. 

"In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part," said Hunter, adding "Is that I think that it was poor judgment because I don’t believe now when I look back on it — I know that there was — did nothing wrong at all. However, was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is a swamp in—in—in many ways? Yeah."

"So I take full responsibility for that," Biden then said. "Did I do anything improper? No, not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever. Did I make a mistake based upon some ethical lapse? Absolutely not."

When pressed over his qualificiations to sit on various boards, Hunter admitted he would "probably not" have gotten them if he weren't Joe Biden's son, though he insisted that there was no impropriety. 

Watch:

Meanwhile, from 2001 to 2005, Hunter received consulting fees from the MNBA corporation to work on 'online banking issues' while his father Joe was helping the credit card industry pass a law making it more difficult to file for bankruptcy protection. 

Aides to Mr. Obama, who chose Mr. Biden as his vice-presidential running mate on Saturday, would not say how much the younger Mr. Biden, who works as both a lawyer and lobbyist in Washington, had received, though a company official had once described him as having a $100,000 a year retainer. -NYT

How long has this been going on?
