Hunter Biden came out of hiding for a long ABC News interview Tuesday morning to try to lay to rest the questions about his foreign profiteering. He failed.
The main controversy centers on his $50,000-a-month position on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company that’s been under investigation for corruption for a decade, on and off.
Why did it bring on a 44-year-old lawyer who had no experience with Ukraine or natural gas — but happened to be the son of the US vice president who was serving as administration point man on Ukraine?
“I think I had as much experience as anybody else on the board … if not more,” Hunter told ABC News.
But — asked outright: “If your name was not Biden, do you think you would have been asked to be on the board of Burisma?” — he didn’t dare deny the obvious: “Probably not,” he replied.
