EXCERPT:

MURRAY: "That’s right. There’s this sense that Hunter Biden benefited over the course of his career with being in proximity to Joe Biden’s power. There is no evidence that Joe Biden actually did anything wrong or did anything to sway things in Hunter Biden’s favor. He’s denied that his son ever lobbied him for anything. But when you look at Ukraine, for instance, Hunter Biden was on the board of this energy company and it was being investigated by a prosecutor in Ukraine. Joe Biden got that prosecutor fired by threatening to withhold the U.S. aid. Now, everyone says that's because the prosecutor was deeply corrupt, but you can see what the optics are. Similarly, in China, Hunter Biden was working with a company that was trying to land a big deal with the Bank of China, he takes Air Force Two with Joe Biden to China in 2013. A few days later, this business deal is finalized. And so it sort of gives the impression that Hunter Biden is constantly using his connections with his father essentially to get these deals done."
