I think Joe's take on this was that his son was an adult and was free to pursue an independent career. It's more than likely that the Ukrainian company offered him the job because of his name and in hopes of obtaining influence on US energy policy in the region. I haven't heard any information which suggests that Joe Biden put Hunter's name out there. Nothing illegal here. And not necessarily
corrupt — either man could recuse himself from activities which might appear to be ethically questionable.
That doesn't mean it's good. And I'll bet that Joe Biden is not the only politician with a child who's been hired by some corporation, domestic or foreign, because of the status attached to the name. Maybe, somewhere down the road, Congress will address this situation which looks
like a potential conflict of interest and a possible precursor of political corruption.
What Trump did was wrong...
But it's a totally different situation, hardly comparable. Trump's a sitting president, Hunter was simply sitting on a corporate board.
