President Biden believes his son Hunter did nothing illegal while involved in controversial and highly lucrative business dealings in Ukraine and China and is allowing the Justice Department to carry out its investigation unimpeded, the White House chief of staff said Sunday.
“Of course, the president’s confident that his son didn’t break the law. But, most importantly, as I said, that’s a matter that’s going to be decided by the Justice Department, by the legal process,” Ron Klain said on ABC News’ “This Week.”
“It’s something that no one at the White House has involvement in.”
But ABC’s George Stephanopoulos pressed Klain on a report in the Washington Post last week that said a Chinese energy conglomerate paid Hunter Biden and the president’s brother, James, $4.8 million over a 14-month period.
Stephanopoulos asked Klain if the White House is positive that no ethical lines were crossed.
