"I can say this, is I'm cooperating, completely".

"I went one time for 13 days without sleeping, and smoking crack and drinking vodka exclusively throughout that entire time".

In a teaser released Friday for another portion of the interview, Hunter Biden spoke about a second intervention, in which the then-2020 presidential candidate chased his son down the driveway, sobbing, begging him to stop using drugs.

President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden said during an interview that aired on "CBS Sunday Morning" he is "100% certain" that at the end of the U.S. Attorney's Office in DE investigation into his taxes, he will be cleared of any wrongdoing.

The investigation is examining multiple financial issues, including whether Biden and his associates violated tax and money laundering laws in business dealings in foreign countries, principally China, according to two people briefed on the probe.

He dodged questions about a laptop purportedly taken from him, which is now in the hands of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "Or that there was a laptop stolen from me". It could be that I was hacked, it could be that it was Russian intelligence.

His comment came during a meeting of top officials as they mark the 100th anniversary of the Jordanian state. Before becoming royal court chief in 2007, he was head of the king's cabinet in 2006.

Hunter Biden, meanwhile, sat on the board of a Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma Holdings-which is subject to a corruption investigation in Ukraine-for a reportedly lucrative monthly salary. It could be that it was stolen from me.

"We talk at least every night", he said of his relationship with his father. Republicans and former President Donald Trump accused Biden of knowing about Hunter Biden's role at the company, citing Biden's public statements about getting a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Burisma, Viktor Shokin, fired.

"It's the only thing I could think".

"He came to my apartment one time. And this was when he was still in office as vice president, and so he kinda ditched his Secret Service, figured out a way to get over to the house", Mr Biden said.

"Not only does he talk to me every night, but he calls every one of my daughters, he talks to each one of them every day".

"I tried to go to my vehicle, and my girls literally blocked the door to my auto and said, 'Dad, Dad, please, you can't. No".
