Hunter Biden Admits ‘Poor Judgment’ but Slams ‘Ridiculous Conspiracy’ about Ukraine
Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter has admitted to poor judgment in his involvement with Ukrainian gas company Burisma. In an interview with ABC News, Biden denied any wrongdoing and criticized those who were spreading unfounded allegations about him.
ABC News’ Amy Robach asked Biden if he thought he would have been appointed to the Bursima board if he weren’t Joe Biden’s son.
“I don’t know, I don’t know,” Biden said. “robably not, in retrospect. But that’s—you know—I don’t think that there’s a lot of things that would have happened in my life if my last name wasn’t Biden.”

“Did I make a mistake? Well, maybe in the grand scheme of things, yeah,” he said. “But did I make a mistake based upon some ethical lapse? Absolutely not.”
“I don’t regret being on the board,” Biden said. “But what I regret is not taking into account that there would be a Rudy Giuliani and a president of the U.S. that would be listening to this ridiculous conspiracy idea which has again been completely debunked by everyone.”
Biden admitted that his decision to join Burisma was ‘poor judgment’ but he denied there was anything unethical or ‘improper.’
There is no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of the Bidens.
