Hunter Biden admitted in a wide-ranging interview Tuesday that he only landed the lucrative seat at the Burisma’s board of directors because shares his father Joe Biden’s surname.
Hunter Biden had joined Burisma Holdings’ board of directors in 2014 while then-Vice President Joe Biden oversaw U.S. foreign policy in Ukraine.
“I think that they saw my name as gold,” Biden told the BBC, adding that “one of the reasons” Burisma hired him was because they “wanted to create a bulwark” against “Russian aggression.”
Hunter went on to claim that the “Biden name” is “synonymous with democracy and transparency”, which is another reason Burisma wanted Hunter on their board.
“They knew that they had to expand internationally and into other sectors in order to diversify and protect themselves…The Biden name is synonymous with democracy and transparency,” Hunter Biden said. “That’s why I said it was gold to them.”
This interview comes shortly after Hunter told CBS that he smoked parmesan cheese mistakenly believing it was crack he found in the carpets.
Hunter had previously said in 2019 that he probably wouldn’t have gotten the cushy $50,000-a-month Burisma job if his last name wasn’t Biden.
Hunter’s so-called “laptop from hell”, however, reveals a trove of evidence that Hunter has engaged in shady and possibly illegal business dealings in the Ukraine and Communist China on top of his excessive drug use.
Hunter Biden admitted in a Friday interview that the infamous “laptop from hell” which contained explosive evidence of shady business dealings and a trove of sexual material – some of it allegedly underage – “absolutely” could belong to him.
