Hunter Biden, the son of former U.S. vice president Joe Biden, pushed back for the first time on Sunday morning at the criticism he has received from Republican President Donald Trump about his work in Ukraine and China.
Hunter Biden intends to step down from the board of a Chinese company that has been the target of criticism on Oct. 31, according to the statement. He has received no profit from his time serving on the board of BHR (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Company.
Trump’s accusations against Hunter Biden – which he has levied without any evidence – and his efforts to get officials in Ukraine to investigate, led Democrats in the U.S. House last month to begin an impeachment inquiry into the president.
Joe Biden currently leads most public opinion polls in the Democratic primary and most polls in a hypothetical match-up between him and Trump in the November 2020 election.
Hunter Biden’s attorney dismissed that his client had done anything wrong. He said while Hunter Biden was working at Bursima, the energy company in Ukraine, he faced no allegations of wrongdoing.

“Hunter undertook these business activities independently,” his attorney George Mesires said in a statement.
“He did not believe it appropriate to discuss them with his father, nor did he. Hunter always understood that his father would be guided, entirely and unequivocally, by established U.S. policy, irrespective of its effects on Hunter’s professional interests."
Ukraine Provides Statement On Evidence Against Hunter Biden.
Ukraine’s new top prosecutor said on Friday he was not aware of any evidence of wrongdoing by the son of former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and that he had not been contacted by any foreign lawyers about the case.
U.S. President Donald Trump asked President Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July 25 phone call to investigate Biden and his son Hunter, who earned money from a Ukrainian gas company.
That call has triggered an impeachment inquiry into whether Trump sought personal political gain by pushing for a foreign investigation into one of his main political rivals.
“I have no such information,” General Prosecutor Ruslan Ryaboshapka told Reuters, when asked whether he had evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden.
Asked if Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph Giuliani had contacted him, Ryaboshapka told reporters at a news conference that no foreigners had been in touch with his office.

Ryaboshapka took office at the end of August and said his office was reviewing criminal cases opened by his predecessor, including some that could relate to the Ukrainian gas company, Burisma.
Trump on Thursday again invited foreign interference in a U.S. presidential election by publicly calling on China to investigate Joe Biden.
The Republican president said he believed both China and Ukraine should look into 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Biden and his son, and described the impeachment probe as “crap.” (Reporting by Maria Tsvetkova and Pavel Polityuk; writing by Matthias Williams Editing by Gareth Jones)
