Joe Biden's Deputy Campaign Manager, Kate Bedingfield, appeared on MSNBC to talk about the veep's opinion piece in the Washington Post. During the interview she made a rather shocking admission: Hunter Biden received permission from the Obama White House to sit on the Ukrainian oil company's board of directors in his $600,000 per year "job":
"There were unfounded claims against him. But he doesn't get explicit about Hunter himself. Why is that, Kate?" host Hallie Jackson asked.
"He has. He's been asked and he said, Look, every single independent outlet that's looked into this has said there was no issue of wrongdoing here.' And you know in 2014 the White House cleared Hunter serving on that board," Bedingfield said. "So he has absolutely been asked that question and he's answered it many times."
When asked for clarification, the Biden Campaign refused to comment.
