Former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden continue to handle his son's ties to a Ukranian gas company, and the role he played, by making contradictory statements.

Biden recently claimed that he had no knowledge of the possible conflict of interest, despite his aides being made aware of it and a report indicating that his aides prepared for scrutiny during a trip to the country while he was Vice President.

According to The Daily Wire:

Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was caught making an apparently new questionable claim about the work that his son, Hunter Biden, did while working at the Ukrainian gas company Burisma.

As Hunter recalled, his father discussed Burisma with him just once: “Dad said, ‘I hope you know what you are doing,’ and I said, ‘I do.’ ”

Vogel has claimed that Hunter gained his position on the board due to his father's position within the government.
