Former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading Democratic presidential contender, said that he was likely wrong to have challenged an Iowa voter to a pushup contest when the man queried him about his son and alleged that he was too old to run for president. Hunter, who had recently been discharged from the Navy for drug use, was hired by Burisma and paid more than $80,000 a month despite the fact that Hunter had no relevant experience whatsoever.
Biden's son has not been accused of any legal wrongdoing related to his time in Ukraine.
"You don't hear that on MSNBC", Biden said.
"I found out he was on the board after he was on the board and that was it", Biden responded when asked about Hunter's role on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma. "You're selling access to the president just like he was". "That's not true. And no one has ever said that".
"Look, the reason I'm running is because I've been around a long time, and I know more than most people know and I can get things done". I know he was on the board. He's lying. You acknowledge what he said wasn't even true. "And that was it". "Isn't this something you want to get to the bottom of?" Ron Johnson (Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (Iowa) have asked Blue Star Strategies' CEO for information regarding the work it did for the Ukrainian energy company following reports that it considered leveraging Hunter Biden's membership in Burisma's board to secure meetings with Obama administration officials. Hunter hooked up with his brother's widow, fathered a child behind her back and denied the baby was his. "I wish he had explained in a decent tone of voice why he got his son in that position over there and in my opinion he had no business whatsoever sticking his nose over there". "Like when you're vice president, isn't there a higher standard?"
"Don't you need to know?"
Biden: No, there is nothing asserting that he did anything that was illegal. "There's nothing on its face that was wrong".
