Hunter Biden Admits His Name Was ‘Gold’ for Ukrainian Company That Controversially Hired Him

Hunter Biden admitted in an interview that his name was “gold” to Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.

Biden defended his appointment as a director on Burisma’s board while his father was vice president, which has drawn scrutiny in the past, BBC News reported.

However, he acknowledged he “missed … the perception that I would create.”

“I know that it is hard to believe with 20/20 hindsight how I could possibly have missed that,” Biden said.

A report from Republican senators in September found Biden’s role with Burisma was “awkward” and “problematic,” but said there was no evidence U.S. policy toward Ukraine was influenced by his position, according to The Washington Post.
