VIDEO: Biden Claims He Didn’t Know What Hunter Was Doing in Ukraine

During an interview with Rachel Martin of NPR, 2020 candidate Joe Biden claimed that nobody warned him about a potential conflict of interest with his son working on the board of directors of Burisma and receiving tens of thousands a month despite having no gas industry experience.

Hunter Biden himself has admitted he exercised “poor judgement.”

Rachel Martin, NPR:

You know it didn’t look good for Hunter Biden to be on that board, even if he did nothing wrong. The optics weren’t good. And you talk a lot about what it means to be a Biden and the integrity that is imbued in that family name. But there were former White House aides of yours who tried to warn you about the potential conflicts of interest.

Joe Biden:

Nobody warned me about a potential conflict of interest. Nobody warned me about that. And at the same time —

Rachel Martin, NPR:

George Kent, the State Department official, testified that he raised it to you, and your staff.

Joe Biden:

No, he didn’t say me. He did not say me.

Rachel Martin, NPR:

To your staff. To your staff, I stand corrected.

Joe Biden:

I never, never heard that once at all.

Rachel Martin, NPR:

To your staff. And your staff told him he has no bandwidth for family matters.

Joe Biden:

Well, my son was dying, so I guess that’s why he said it, because my son was on his deathbed. But that, that’s not the reason why — they should have told me.

During a separate interview with Axios, Joe Biden claimed he didn’t know what his son Hunter was doing in Ukraine at all, prompting interview Mike Allen to say point blank “That doesn’t pass the smell test.”

Joe Biden:

I don’t know what he was doing. I know he was on the board. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board, and that was it.
