Hunter Biden says he didn’t realize that his position on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma would become a political liability for his dad.
President Joe Biden’s son told the BBC that he had “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,” he said.
He said that the company saw his name “as gold” and that played a role in his hiring.
Hunter Biden’s work with Burisma has become a frequent target of Republicans, though they have not found evidence of wrongdoing.
Former President Donald Trump’s fixture on the role also led to his first impeachment by the House of Representatives.
Trump called Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky, and the White House transcript of the call showed Trump asking Zelensky to look into the Bidens’ activities.
