"I don't think I made a mistake in taking the spot on the board," Biden said. "I think I made a mistake in terms of underestimating the way in which it would be used against me."
"But you must have seen the optics. Even back then you must have, I mean, how could you not have foreseen that this was gonna look bad?" Smith asked.
"Because I really didn't," Biden responded.
"I'm being as honest with you as I possibly can," Biden continued. "All I know is that not one investigative body, not one serious journalist, have ever accused, has ever come to the conclusion that I did anything wrong, or that my father did anything wrong."
Smith also hammered Biden on the emails found on a laptop left in a computer repair shop that he claims is not his. CBS News reports:
The report, Smith said, does not specifically reference the alleged Hunter Biden laptop. "Was that your laptop?" she asked.
"For real, I don't know," Hunter replied.
"I know. But you know that, this isn't ..."
"But my point is, I really don't know. The answer is, that's the truthful answer."
"You don't know, yes or no, if the laptop was yours?"
"I don't have any idea. No idea whether or not …"
"So, could have been yours?"
"Of course, certainly," Hunter said. "There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me."
"And you didn't drop off a laptop to be repaired, in Delaware?"
"No. Not that I remember at all. At all. So, we'll see."
