Really, Really Bad Optics: Joe Biden’s Son Hunter Joins Ukranine’s Largest Private Gas Producer
Wow, does this ever look bad:
Joe Biden has been the White House’s go-to guy during the Ukraine crisis, touring former Soviet republics and reassuring their concerned leaders. And now, he’s not the only Biden involved in the region.
The vice president’s youngest son, Hunter Biden, has been appointed head of legal affairs at Burisma Holdings, Ukraine’s largest private gas producer, The Moscow Times reported Tuesday. Hunter described his new role in a statement on the company’s website:
As a new member of the board, I believe that my assistance in consulting the company on matters of transparency, corporate governance and responsibility, international expansion, and other priorities will contribute to the economy and benefit the people of Ukraine.
