Washington (AP) — Joe Biden’s son Hunter said his service on the board of directors of a Ukrainian gas company that the Republicans tried to negatively in the 2020 presidential election was not unethical and his part.
But young Biden will never do it again if given the chance, he quotes partisan politics in his new book.
“I didn’t do anything unethical and I’ve never been charged with cheating,” Hunter Biden wrote in his memoir “Beautiful Things.” You will be attacked anyway. “
“In this current climate, what I believe is that it doesn’t matter what I did or didn’t do,” he writes. “The attack was not aimed at me. They intended to hurt my father.”
In a memoir to be released on Tuesday, the president’s son records a lifelong battle between alcohol and drug addiction and numerous stints both inside and outside rehab.
Hunter Biden writes that the descent into the darkness came after his brother Bo died of a brain tumor at the age of 46 in 2015. He concludes the book in his current life. Biden and his baby son, Bo. Hunter Biden also has three daughters from a previous marriage.
During the 2020 campaign against Democrat Joe Biden, Republican President Donald Trump and his allies repeatedly pursued the issue of young Biden’s work for the Ukrainian gas company Brisma. Trump alleged an unspecified dubious deal by Biden, despite no evidence of fraud by either Biden or his son.
Trump was eventually impeached by a Democratic-controlled US home for forcing Kiev to investigate the Bidens. The Republican-controlled Senate voted to keep Trump in power.
Hunter Biden wrote that when he joined Brisma’s board of directors in 2014 to assist in overseeing corporate practices, his only misconception was that Trump was in the White House three years later.
A lawyer and former lobbyist, he joined Brisma’s board of directors when his father was Vice President and helped implement the Obama administration’s foreign policy in Eastern Europe.
Trump et al. Alleged that Hunter Biden was misusing his father’s name and raised charges of unfounded corruption.
“I know it all now. No, I’ll never do it again,” writes Hunter Biden. “I didn’t get to Brisma’s board. Trump would have to look elsewhere to find the distractions that deserve his impeccable behavior.”
The title of the book, “Beautiful Things,” is an expression that Hunter Biden and his brother use each other after Bo’s diagnosis and was intended to emphasize what is important in life.
This memoir was created before Joe Biden became a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential election. Even when Hunter Biden’s commerce became fixed to Trump and his allies during the elections and his finances were subject to a Judiciary investigation, it was obscured.
