For years, former Vice President Joe Biden has insisted that he had nothing to do with his son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine, even going so far as to declare that the two had never even spoken about it.
This was far-fetched from the get-go, as such an omission would call into question the strength of the relationship within the family, first of all, and negate any claims that Joe made about the close-knit nature of he and Hunter’s relationship.
No, Joe made these claims in order to prevent his son from being accused of nepotism, and to avoid allegations that he used his office to assist Hunter’s business endeavors.
Now, just three weeks ahead of the 2020 election in which the nation must choose between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, a smoking gun has emerged that blows the Biden family story out of the water.
Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.
The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.
An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.
The revelation also calls into question a number of the claims made during the impeachment of Donald Trump last year, in which a number of Democratic operatives and surrogates parroted the lie that Joe Biden had zero connection to Burisma and Hunter’s position there.
