    (Bloomberg) -- Hunter Biden is stepping down from the board of a Chinese-backed private equity company and promising to forego all foreign work if his father, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, is elected president in 2020.

    After months of keeping a relatively low-profile as President Donald Trump leveled a barrage of unsubstantiated accusations of corruption at him, the younger Biden is publicly vowing to avoid any conflict of interest.

    According to a statement released on his behalf by his lawyer George Mesires, Biden said he’ll resign at the end of the month from the management company of a private equity fund that’s backed by Chinese state-owned entities. He also pledged that he wouldn’t work for any foreign-owned companies or serve on their boards during a potential Biden administration. He reiterated that he never discussed his business activities with his father.

    He should return all the money that he took from China and Ukraine and go to prison. He who takes what isn't his'n must pay it back and go to prison.

    In other words, they are tacitly admitting Hunter's guilt. By the way, George, where's Hunter?

    LOL We already knew it, but it's nice of the Chinese to admit their companies are the internal affairs of other countries.

    Yes, we know you all too well, Uncle Joe, which is why we could never vote for you. Oh, by the way, Joe, where's Hunter?

    I wondered the same. For his sake, he better hope he's not on an Epstein list.

    If Hunter and Joe had a smidgen of sense between them, Hunter would never have been on this board or the one in Ukraine.

    But the money was too much to resist.

    I think that they violated the Hobbs Act, right? Hunter should get 50 years.

    There's more media bias right there - "amid Trump attacks". If he'd been anything but a Democrat's kid, it would have read that he stepped down amid allegations of corruption.

    But Hunter, like Chelsea, is liberal royalty. Beau was too, but Hunter has drug and substance abuse problems, and he's the black sheep of the Biden family. Hunter's wife and the mother of his children dumped him after years of marriage because Hunter started carrying on with Beau's widow.
