Responding to withering criticism from President Trump, Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden issued a statement through his lawyer that he will step down from his work with a Chinese investment firm at the end of the month.
The younger Biden’s work for foreign companies is at the center of the Ukraine phone call situation, which is fueling the current impeachment inquiry in the House of Representatives.
President Trump suggested Ukraine should investigate the odd circumstances where then-Vice President Joe Biden threatened to withhold aid from the Ukraine unless the government fired a prosecutor who, among other things, was looking into a company that employed Hunter Biden and paid him handsomely.
Instead of backing down after many called out President Trump for asking a foreign country to investigate a political rival, Trump noted in public that the Chinese should also look into Hunter Biden’s dealings.
Hunter Biden declared he wouldn’t work with any foreign firms if his father is elected president. Perhaps he’s hoping for a position in the new administration.
