Hunter Biden swears no more corruption if Dad wins

News broke yesterday morning that Hunter Biden has officially stepped down from the board of directors of a Chinese-backed private equity company.  Additionally, he made a public promise that if his father, Joe Biden, wins the presidency, he will “forego all foreign work.”

Quite a lot to unpack here.  Firstly, he’s missing the point entirely.  While President Trump’s Ukraine phone call shined a bright light on Joe and Hunter Biden’s corruption, the outrage was never about him working for a foreign company.  It was about how he got those positions in the first place — with his father’s power and status in the U.S. government.  Questions were raised about what was promised in return for giving the former vice president’s drug-addicted child an extremely lucrative career with virtually no experience.  Next, stepping down only brings more attention to the scandal.  Most voters probably didn’t even know that Hunter Biden was still on the board of the Chinese firm.  Rookie mistake, as it also implies guilt.  If Hunter really did nothing wrong, as was previously claimed, why would he feel the need to remove himself from those job positions?
