Washington (CNN)Hunter Biden says he is fully cooperating with the Justice Department's investigation into his business dealings in China and predicted that he will be cleared of any wrong doing in the probe.

And I'm absolutely certain, 100% certain, that at the end of the investigation, that I will be cleared of any wrongdoing," Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, told CBS News in an interview that aired Sunday.

Federal investigators have been actively looking into the business dealings of the younger Biden, a person with knowledge of the probe told CNN in December.

The investigation is examining multiple financial issues, including whether Hunter 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.

Biden also defended taking a position in 2014 on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company that played a role in former President Donald Trump's first impeachment, saying he underestimated how it would be used against him.

In the interview, Biden said he did not think the optics of him accepting the job would present an issue, but in his forthcoming memoir, Biden admits if he was offered the job all over again, he would say "no" to taking it, if only to avoid the scrutiny, according to a CNN review of the book.

Biden also said in the interview that he and his father speak every day, with the President generally calling him every night before bed.

And he talks to me," Biden said about conversations with his father, adding that it's something the President has always done.
