Biden Denies Wrongdoing in Ukraine During Testy Interview

Former Vice President Joe Biden pushed back on allegations that there was anything inappropriate about his son, Hunter Biden, serving on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings during an interview with Axios’ Mike Allen.

Allen asked Biden about his knowledge of his son’s duties on Burima’s board, “What’s your understanding of what your son was doing for an extraordinary amount of money?”

Biden said he did not know what his son’s duties were at Burisma, and that he was unaware of his son’s position until after he was named to the board.

“I don’t know what he was doing. I know he was on the board. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board, and that was it.”

Watch his comments below:

When Allen pressed Biden on why he hasn’t investigated his son’s position on Burisma’s board, Biden said he didn’t look into whether there was any impropriety because “I trust my son.”

But when Allen pressed him on whether he should’ve looked in the situation more, Biden became aggravated and blasted the media for talking about his son’s position on the board.

“There’s nothing on its face that was wrong. Look, if you want to talk about problems – you know – let’s talk about Trump’s family. I mean, come on … You guys are amazing.”

Biden indicated that’s he’s tired of getting questions about Ukraine, “You know there’s not one single bit of evidence, not one little tiny bit, to say that anything done was wrong. You know that, but you keep asking me these questions. But it’s okay. You’re doing what you have to do. But I’m not worried about it. ”

“Does anyone wonder why all of a sudden they have a newfound interest?” Michael We don’t have to wonder at all. King Donald The Loser laid out the evidence himself saying that he doesn’t care what we think, he will do whatever he wants to do. That is how fascists work. Clearly he wanted to APPEAR to be doing something for the general good (investigate corruption), but the truth lies in the details. We now know why he did it and we now know the legality of it. The only remaining main question is what will His Majesty’s fascist henchmen… Read more »

“Maybe this should have been investigated.” Michael

Only in the same sense that all of THE OTHER Washington corruption needs investigating. There was nothing special or unusual about what happened with the Bidens.

Even the CURRENT administration is doing far more nepotism, cronyism and corruption than most previous administrations and they are doing it because Dear Leader sets the main example with HIS OWN children, HIS OWN examples. Kind of hard to ignore it all because it is so blatant.

Hunter didn’t !know what he was doing either, but he got big fat checks for doing it (whatever “it” was).

Maybe this should have been investigated. It’s clear that at the time Republicans and Trump (they weren’t one and the same yet) did not find it worthy of their attention as it was public knowledge and I don’t remember anyone criticizing it then. Does anyone wonder why all of a sudden they have a newfound interest?
