Joe Biden's son Hunter announces resignation from Chinese firm amid impeachment row

Hunter Biden to step down from Chinese company, refrain from foreign work if father is elected

"He will continue to keep his father personally uninvolved in his business affairs". That was a jab at Trump, who taps daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, as advisers. "Elections in the USA should be decided by Americans and it's not the business of foreign countries, any foreign countries, to be interfering in our elections".

Levin paused before returning to the topic of the media's coverage, claiming outlets have the essence of the transcript completely wrong and noting that Democrats have tried to tie the word "favor" to Biden and his son Hunter. Now watch the Fake News wrap their greasy and very protective arms around him.

Meanwhile, on 24 September, House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump's 25 July telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, where he mentioned the case of firing Ukraine's general prosecutor in 2016.

In a thinly veiled attack against Donald Trump, who brought in his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner to work as White House advisers in his administration, Biden said they will be no ethical conflicts with regards to his family's involvement or business dealings during his presidency. The attorney also said Biden would not work on behalf of any foreign company if his father is elected president in 2020.

"I think this is just another way to save a flailing campaign that's going down", Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said on Fox News Channel's "Sunday Morning Futures".

Robach said that she spent the day with Hunter Biden, but did not disclose any further details of what was said.

Mesires wrote that Hunter Biden worked as an unpaid board member for BHR Equity Investment Fund Management Company "based on his interest in seeking ways to bring Chinese capital to worldwide markets".

Even though everything Hunter did was supposedly legal and ethical, he has committed to discontinuing those legal and ethical practices if his father is elected president. The adviser also didn't know why it had taken weeks for this to happen, referring questions on that to Hunter Biden's lawyer.

"I think the boy knows that I'll beat him like a drum if I get the nomination", Biden continued.

Biden called out the president by name in his plan and said that Trump has "abused the presidency to enrich himself - spending countless tax dollars at his own properties".

"Hunter always understood that his father would be guided, entirely and unequivocally, by established US policy, regardless of its effects on Hunter's professional interests", Biden's attorney said in a statement to Bloomberg. However, Burisma's part of that corruption was well known when Hunter joined its board, a curious move in itself considering Hunter's lack of experience in either energy production or Ukraine.

"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", the statement from Biden's lawyer reads.

He said: "It is a British prime minister who has insisted on trying to remove the backstop from the withdrawal agreement". Opposition Labour Party finance spokesman John McDonnell called the budget announcement "an electioneering stunt".
