Robert Hunter Biden (born February 4, 1970) is an American lawyer and businessman. He is the second son of U. S. President Joe Biden.[1] In 2009, he co-founded Rosemont Seneca Partners.

Biden was on the board of Burisma Holdings from 2014 to 2019.[2][3][4][5][6][7] President Donald Trump tried to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden and Hunter Biden by ending foreign aid to Ukraine. This caused an impeachment inquiry in September 2019, in which the President was impeached.[8][9][10]
