McCain then noted that Biden’s poll numbers are “also breaking my heart,” as he trails Warren in some polls.

“Elizabeth Warren is leading in the CBS-YouGov poll 32 to 24 percent in New Hampshire. So she’s going to take these opportunities,” McCain said, noting that Warren and other Democratic candidates will likely use Hunter Biden’s situation against Joe Biden at the debate Tuesday night.

“Elizabeth Warren — mark my words tonight — or one of these guys, one of the 12 people running … will take the shot in front of them,” McCain added. 

In his interview that aired Tuesday, Hunter Biden said he made a mistake in taking a position on the board of a foreign company that gave political rivals the opportunity to “harm my father.”

"I gave a hook to some very unethical people to act in illegal ways to try to do some harm to my father. That's where I made the mistake," Hunter Biden said. "So I take full responsibility for that. Did I do anything improper? No, not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever."
