‘It Smells’: Hunter Biden Blasted for Foreign Work as Being ‘Wrong’ ‘Right From the Get-Go’

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) is laying into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, for his recent interview where he denied any wrongdoing in his work with Ukraine and China.

During an exclusive interview with ABC News aired on Tuesday, the former vice president’s son addressed his work in Ukraine and China. He suggested that he made a “mistake” on “the grand scheme of things” but didn’t “make a mistake based upon some ethical lapse.”

He also said that he had “poor judgment” in joining a foreign company’s board during his father’s vice presidency.

“I take full responsibility for that. Did I do anything improper? No, and not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever. I joined a board, I served honorably. I focused on corporate governance. I didn’t have any discussions with my father before or after I joined the board as it related to it, other than that brief exchange that we had.”

Biden’s remarks come on the heels of him first firing back against the president on Sunday about his work in the two countries. He is planning to step down from his board position of a Chinese company by the end of the month, as IJR previously reported.

In case you missed it:

 

Jordan noted on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday “two things stuck out” to him from Biden’s interview: “First, it sounds like he’s upset that he got caught in this ridiculous arrangement, and second, he said something about when his dad becomes president.”

“Look, the American people knew right from the get-go this was wrong. American people understand fairness. They instinctively get that this wasn’t fair. This was improper. This wasn’t right. I think it was pretty obvious. He just said now kind of what the American people already understood when this story first broke.”

Jordan continued to slam Biden, as he said Americans “know it smells.”

Watch Jordan’s interview below:

Jordan wasn’t the only Republican to take note of the former vice president’s son’s interview, as President Donald Trump also took a swing at Biden for it.

“Hunter Biden was really bad on @GMA,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “Now Sleepy Joe has real problems! Reminds me of Crooked Hillary and her 33,000 deleted Emails, not recoverable!”

Biden’s interview comes as his father is gearing up for the fourth Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday night.

I realize that the interview was FOX & Friends, but no one on the set thought to ask Jordan WHY he was silent on Jared’s seeking and receiving financial assistance for his 666 5th Avenue debt on 666 5th Avenue? WHY silent on Ivanka’s 16 copyright grants from the Chinese government. WHY silent on the Chinese government offer to finance the Trump Org’s Indonesia project. WHY silent on the Kuchner family offering American visa’s for Chinese investors in their real estate project? WHY silent in 2016 and no call for investigation of Hunter when Jordan was in the MAJORITY?

Hunter Biden said he had not received any $$ from China. But the contract most likely says that the 1.5 B will be distributed when he resigns or leaves. So maybe he did not while “working” with them but he will get it eventually.
Isn’t it amazing that every one of those long term house members have been in the middle of or known about various misappropriations of themselves or other members but never charged anyone?

Did you ever, did you ever,
Peak through the bathroom door?
Did you ever, did you ever
See your sister in the raw?
Yes, you did, you know you did.

Tap turns on the water
See the water flow.
Acorn makes a forest
See the forest grow.

Just imagine what Hunter Biden could get away with if his father were president. – I shudder at the thought –

“No, and not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever.”
The first sentence is all you need if you’re telling the truth, following up with the second sentence means, now you’ve got to convince people that you’re not lying, when you know you are.

First, it doesn’t matter whether or not Hunter Biden THINKS what he did was unethical or not–IT WAS! Second, “He is planning to step down from his board position of a Chinese company…” I wonder if this is like Huma Abiden’s many statements that she is going to divorce Anthony Weiner…but never did. Third, he was never asked the relevant questions. How did you come about getting this position at Burisma? Who initially approached you or introduced you, and why? How did you get this position when you had no relevant experience in the industry, with Board governance, or any… Read more »

What journalist, and journalist’s boss, approved “right from the gecko”? Is this a sly Geico commercial? It’s “get-go”, which Jordon clearly says. For a world where each word matters so much, (it depends on what the definition of “is” is) how can reporting care so little. Maybe “right from the get-go” is too old school for college edjumacated (Sarcasm)kids AND their superiors. Didn’t IJR think of fixing it?
