Still, Mesires stated that Hunter Biden plans to resign from BHR's board by October 31, and that if Joe Biden becomes the Democratic presidential nominee and goes on to defeat President Trump in the 2020 election, Hunter "will agree not to serve on boards of, or work on behalf of, foreign-owned companies".
Tapper noted how President Donald Trump and his allies have repeatedly tried to weaponize Hunter's foreign business activities, even as the CNN host also noted the lies pushed by Trumpworld to deflect from the Ukraine scandal.
"To date, Hunter has not received any compensation for being on BHR's board of directors", Mesires said.
Hunter Biden invested about $420,000 in the company to obtain an equity stake, but has received no profit since then, according to his attorney. Trump tweeted on Sunday, adding without evidence the claim it "now looks like [Biden] has raided and scammed even more countries!"

The towns of Ras al-Ain and Darbasiya, some 60 km (37 miles) to the east, have been largely deserted as a result of the attack. This came hours after Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) introduced their own proposal for sanctions .
Trump has previously asserted that Joe Biden used his political authority to influence the Ukrainian government to halt an investigation into a Ukraine-based gas company, of which Hunter was on the board of directors.
In a letter released Sunday by his lawyer George Mesires, Hunter Biden will also vow not to serve on the boards of foreign-owned companies if his father is elected president. After Joe Biden said that he never spoke to his son about his "overseas business dealings" earlier this month, Trump posted a video to Twitter showing the two Bidens golfing with a Burisma executive in 2014.
"In any event, Hunter will agree not to serve on boards of, or work on behalf of, foreign owned companies", the statement said. Trump denied wrongdoing and insisted the call was "perfect".
Trump and Republican lawmakers allege that Joe Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in guaranteed loans to Ukraine unless it fired top prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who had investigated Burisma's owner.

Via a statement published by Mesires on the website Medium, Hunter Biden finally broke his silence after weeks of aggressive attacks from the U.S. president accusing both father and son of corruption, without providing evidence.
"Despite extensive scrutiny, at no time has any law enforcement agency, either domestic or foreign, alleged that Hunter engaged in wrongdoing at any point during his five-year term", his attorney wrote. Bloomberg first reported Biden's pledge and decision to step down. At a rally in Minnesota this week, Trump lashed out at the Democratic front-runner's son, taunting him over his personal struggles with drug use and his low profile during his father's campaign. "Let's do another t-shirt".
The impeachment probe was sparked by a whistleblower who revealed that Trump asked Ukraine's new president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, to investigate Biden's family and Ukraine's role of in the 2016 election that put Trump in office. "I'm also confident the American people know me, and they know my son".
