Hunter Biden regrets 'poor judgment' in handling work with Ukraine firm

Trump has denied wrongdoing. Moreover, Hunter Biden acknowledged and underscored the one legitimate area of criticism.

That's according to his father Joe Biden's DE colleague in the Senate, Tom Carper, who offered the sole nomination speech for the younger Biden when his name was presented in the Senate Commerce Committee.

Mesires wrote that Biden is now prioritising avoiding conflicts of interest that could interfere with his father's future political aspirations and will continue to keep his father out of his business affairs. "No, and not in any way", Biden said.

Joe Biden responded to Cooper: 'Look, my son did nothing wrong, I did nothing wrong.

"That's true for Russian Federation, that's true for Ukraine, that's true for China, that's true for all of them", he said.

Early this year, Ivanka Trump's now-dormant company received five new trademarks from the Chinese government - even as her father was gearing up for high-level trade negotiations with the planet's most-populous nation.

Mr Biden did not say if his pledge meant that his wife, Jill Biden, would not get the office traditionally assigned to first ladies, should he win.

The younger Biden also said he did not discuss his position on the firms board with his father before or after taking the role except for one previously reported brief exchange.

Trump's repeated calls for Ukraine to investigate the Bidens are at the center of a whistleblower's complaint that triggered an impeachment inquiry into the president.

"What we have to do now is focus on Donald Trump", he said.

Biden had told the New Yorker that he met with his business partner, Jonathan Li, who ran the Chinese private-equity fund Bohai Capital and formed BHR Partners with Biden and others.

"In retrospect I think there was poor judgment on my part", he said.

"'He knows he's in trouble and this is just another way to try and detract attention". During a July 25 phone call, Trump told Zelensky to connect with Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, to probe the claims about the Bidens. No evidence has emerged to back up that claim, which of course has done nothing to keep the president from advancing it as he faces his own Ukraine-related mess.

His interview with ABC News' Amy Robach was filmed this weekend and no topic was off limits.

Mr Mesires wrote that Mr Biden worked as an unpaid board member for BHR Equity Investment Fund Management Company "based on his interest in seeking ways to bring Chinese capital to global markets". Biden might continue, "I'm going to talk about the most serious betrayal of American democracy and the Constitution in USA history, a president not only going to a foreign country to interfere in our elections but also to extort help using the promise of a meeting and release of aid".

"[He said] 'I hope you know what you're doing, ' and I said 'I do, ' and that was literally the end of our discussion", he said.

Hunter Biden said he never spoke with his father about his business dealings with the Ukrainian company, saying that he made no "ethical lapse".
