Many people have wondered why a gas company in Ukraine would pay Hunter Biden tens of thousands of dollars a month when he has no experience in the field and can’t even speak their language.
Now a former Polish president is answering that question.
He says Hunter was hired because his last name is Biden.
FOX Business reports:
Hunter Biden hired because of his name: Burisma board member
Aleksander Kwasniewski, a former Polish president who is on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, said Thursday that Hunter Biden was indeed chosen to join its advisory board because of his name. He said that is simply how the world of business works.
But Kwasniewski insisted in an interview with The Associated Press that Biden was an active board member who helped the company and that he never used his relationship with his father, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, to further the company’s interests.
“I understand that if someone asks me to be part of some project it’s not only because I’m so good, it’s also because I am Kwasniewski and I am a former president of Poland,” he said. “And this is all interconnected. No-names are a nobody. Being Biden is not bad. It’s a good name.”
Kwasniewski also said Burisma members never tried to use Hunter Biden to curry favor with the administration of Barack Obama when Joe Biden was vice president.
Senator Lindsey Graham is already signaling that Republicans are not letting this issue go.

Graham says he loves Joe Biden ‘as a person,’ but Hunter Biden’s Burisma work ‘doesn’t pass the smell test’
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham on Monday doubled down on his calls for former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, to be investigated by Congress, signaling he is not moved by his friend and former Senate colleague’s bitter allegations that the South Carolina lawmaker is being controlled by President Trump.
“I love Joe Biden as a person but we are not going to give a pass to what is obviously a conflict of interest,” Graham said in a Monday morning tweet. “I believe Hunter Biden’s association on the Burisma board doesn’t pass the smell test. If a Republican was in the same position, they’d certainly be investigated!”
