Speaking to ABC’s Good Morning America about President Trump’s claims of misconduct, which have been bolstered by his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, Hunter Biden didn’t go as far to say he would have acted differently in serving on multiple boards of foreign companies. Instead, he stated explicitly that he “did nothing wrong at all,” but conceded that he did not foresee the political toll his prior work would take on his father’s current political fortunes.

“In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part. Is that I think that it was poor judgment because I don't believe now, when I look back on it —I know that there was—did nothing wrong at all,” Hunter Biden said in the Tuesday morning interview with ABC. “However, was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is...a swamp in—in—in many ways?

The younger Biden’s television appearance and the elder Biden’s opening comments were not addressed by other candidates on the stage directly, though Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) appeared to try and piggyback on the subject before being cut off by the moderators.

Before the debate, Biden’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield reiterated that the younger Biden had decided independently to appear on TV the same day as the Democratic debate in Ohio.

“Him sitting down and answering every question is more than you can say for Donald Trump,” she told CNN host Wolf Blitzer.

The Daily Beast reported on Monday that the timing of the interview was seen as perplexing by several rival campaigns, and even by a top Biden surrogate himself, who suggested the move was ill advised.

Before his father launched his presidential campaign in April, Hunter Biden stepped down from the board of a private gas firm in Ukraine. But his work there has been under increased scrutiny by Republicans and the subject of baseless attacks by the Trump White House.

This week, he announced he would step down from the board of the Chinese private equity company on which he served. In addition, his lawyer George Mesires writing that under a hypothetical Biden administration, Hunter Biden would “readily comply with any and all guidelines or standards a President Biden may issue to address purported conflicts of interest, or the appearance of such conflicts, including any restrictions related to overseas business interests.”

Mesires went on to write that, “in any event, Hunter will agree not to serve on boards of, or work on behalf of, foreign owned companies.”

Over the past several weeks, the Biden campaign has denied that any wrongdoing took place, and insisted that unnecessary attention paid to it would only play into Trump’s hands. They’ve even gone so far as to ask that Giuliani not be booked on television networks, pushing the boundaries of traditionally acceptable conduct from a political campaign.

In his ABC interview, Hunter took a moment to turn the attention back to Giuliani, saying he regrets “not taking into account that there would be a Rudy Giuliani and a president of the U.S. that would be listening to this ridiculous conspiracy idea which has again been completely debunked by everyone.”
