Hunter Biden, the former vice president's middle child, is at the center of a controversy over a possible conflict of interest involving a business he served on the board of and the Ukrainian government.
Biden's personal life has created tension as it has played out amid his father's political life for years and is now coming into sharper focus as the elder Biden has led the field of Democratic voters for months.
See how Hunter rose through the ranks of Washington and found himself involved in President Donald Trump's latest scandal.
Biden's sons were well-known fixtures in his public life since they were children.
Hunter followed in his father's political footsteps and worked his way up in Washington.
In 1997, Hunter returned to the family's roots in Wilmington, Delaware, where he began a career that immediately caused conflict of interest questions.
Hunter flexed his connections and rose up the ranks in the Washington scene.
From 2001 to 2008, he worked at Oldaker, Biden, and Belair, LLP, a federal lobbyist firm he co-founded but resigned to preserve the optics of his father's campaign.
As his father found his place at the top of Washington, Hunter launched several new business efforts that raised eyebrows.
Into adulthood, Hunter became known for his tumultuous personal life.
Despite his personal affairs, Hunter's biggest public troubles came from questions into his business dealings.
The controversy was revived nearly five years later.
