Well, there’s a shocker, right? But that’s not all that was covered in the lengthy interview…
Hunter Biden was interviewed by ABC News’ Amy Robach in a no-holds-barred interview — except for the punches pulled by Robach, of course.
No topic was off-limits when Biden sat down with ABC News’ Amy Robach over the weekend, including how the spotlight on his personal and professional life has threatened his ongoing struggle with addiction. It’s his first broadcast interview since attracting the attention of Trump, who posed this question to his 66 million Twitter followers last week: “WHERE’S HUNTER?”

“I’m here. I’m here and I’m working and I’m living my life,” Hunter Biden retorted from his Los Angeles home. “Hiding in plain sight, I guess.”
Hunter and his strange employment and personal history have become a source of interest because of its connection to the Democrat move to impeach President Trump as well as the future of the candidacy of Joe Biden.
Many find the entire situation rather… odd.
Hunter Biden somehow managed to get some pretty sweet jobs straight out of college despite his mediocre academic performance — jobs for which he was not qualified. It’s also pretty clear that he and his uncle, James, were capitalizing on the Biden name as Joe spent decades in the Senate and then made the shift to Vice President. In particular, his very lucrative deal to join the board of a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, while Vice President Biden was President Obama’s “point man” on Ukraine is rather suspect. (By the way, why was the son of a Democrat on the board of a fossil fuel company anyway? How very “climate denier” of him!)
“Did I make a mistake? Well, maybe in the grand scheme of things, yeah,” he said, again referring to fallout from his overseas business. “But did I make a mistake based upon some ethical lapse? Absolutely not.”
BIDEN: In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part. Is that I think that it was poor judgment because I don’t believe now, when I look back on it — I know that there was — did nothing wrong at all. However, was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is… a swamp in—in—in many ways? Yeah.
I gave a hook to some very unethical people to act in illegal ways to try to do some harm to my father. That’s where I made the mistake. So I take full responsibility for that. Did I do anything improper? No, not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever.
He said that he did not speak to his father about his foreign business dealings, which contradicts what he said to the New Yorker in July where he said he did discuss Burisma during the Obama administration.
When Robach asked, “If your last name wasn’t Biden do you think you would’ve been asked to be on the board of Burisma?” Biden responded:
“I don’t know. I don’t know. Probably not, in retrospect,” he said. “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.”
“Because my dad was Vice President of the United States. There’s literally nothing, as a young man or as a full grown adult that — my father in some way hasn’t had influence over. It does not serve either one of us,” Biden continued.

This is why conservatives want term limits.
Watch the ABC exclusive interview here:
Biden insists that he’s a private citizen and that the entire ordeal is difficult to deal with especially with his history of addiction.
Yeah, I get that — but also, maybe don’t make a fortune by influence peddling.
Remember when the Washington Post and other esteemed publications were running story after story about Trump’s “emoluments clause” violations?
They all seem to have no problem with the Biden family’s world class grifter routine
Which is just so weird, isn’t it

Yes, indeed. It’s very weird.
