Hunter Biden Steps Down from Chinese Board as Trump Attacks

Hunter Biden Steps Down from Chinese Board as Trump Attacks

Hunter Biden is stepping down from the board of a Chinese-backed private equity company and promising to forego all foreign work if his father, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, is elected president in 2020.

After months of keeping a relatively low-profile as President Donald Trump leveled a barrage of unsubstantiated accusations of corruption at him, the younger Biden is publicly vowing to avoid any conflict of interest.

According to a statement released on his behalf by his lawyer George Mesires, Biden said he’ll resign at the end of the month from the management company of a private equity fund that’s backed by Chinese state-owned entities. He also pledged that he wouldn’t work for any foreign-owned companies or serve on their boards during a potential Biden administration. He reiterated that he never discussed his business activities with his father.

“Hunter always understood that his father would be guided, entirely and unequivocally, by established U.S. policy, regardless of its effects on Hunter’s professional interests,” the statement said. “He never anticipated the barrage of false charges against both him and his father by the President of the United States.”

Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani have repeatedly claimed, without providing evidence, that Hunter Biden made millions of dollars from China while his father was vice president. They’ve also made unsubstantiated claims that Joe Biden used his position as the U.S. administration’s point person on Ukraine to help quash an investigation in 2016 into the owner of one of the country’s largest private gas companies where Hunter sat on the board.

Earlier this month, Trump publicly called on China to investigate the Bidens. A spokesman for China’s foreign ministry rejected that notion, saying it wouldn’t interfere in the internal affairs of other countries.

Someone with no experience in any of this gets cushy jobs on foreign boards? no, nothing fishy about that one.

What is insane, though, is the extreme partisanship of a poster who views Biden's son's activities as "fishy" while at the same time having nothing to say about the international business activities of Trump's off spring, benefiting their father while he's still in office.

And themselves! How much money did Ivanka Trump earn last year? And how many patents has she received from China during her White House years?

Not at all. I've always believed that Trump will be forced to resign.

Forced??????       The only legal process for that is impeachment resulting in a conviction.   So again,   you have too much faith in GOP Senators.

No. The Very Stable Genius is much too dirty and deranged to continue his duties. As Bob Dole used to say, I know it and you know it, too.

I agree that Trump is too dirty and deranged to continue his duties,  but I don't see him leaving voluntary.

He'll go if he can make a deal -- if you'll excuse the expression.

WATCH: Joe Biden declares that "no one in my family will have an office in the White House”
 
or “sit in meetings as if they're a Cabinet member”
 
or “have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or foreign country.”

Takes one to know one. You must mention Obama in every fourth posting of yours. Take a good look in the mirror, Deranged One.

I don't know how they do things in the Ukraine or in private equity firms, but in American

companies one doesn't have to be an expert in that industry to be on its board of directors.

Besides some of the executives who work for the company, boards usually include CEOS of

other companies, a retired military bigwig, a former high government official like a cabinet

member, and maybe a college president. Someone like Hunter Biden would be a little too

young, but other than that it would be no big surprise for him to serve as board member.
