Joe Biden has repeatedly denied being any part of his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Ukrainian oil oligarchs and Chinese energy tycoons. It’s becoming increasingly clear that Biden not only knew about his troubled son’s international influence-peddling, he was an integral part of it.
On Wednesday, the New York Post released yet another revelation from the treasure trove of documents in Hunter Biden’s laptop. This is the same laptop whose emails were censored during the 2020 presidential election. Now, we know why.
“Joe Biden met with Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business associates of his son’s at a dinner in Washington, DC, while he was vice president, records on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop show,” the Post reported.
“The dinner, on April 16, 2015, was held in the private ‘Garden Room’ at Café Milano, a Georgetown institution whose catchphrase is: ‘Where the world’s most powerful people go,’ the report continued. “The next day, Hunter received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to thank him for introducing him to his father.”
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together,” Pozharskyi wrote in an email dated April 17, 2015.
“It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” Pozhaskyi added.
“At the time, Burisma was paying Hunter $83,333 a month to sit on its board,” the Post notes.
The New York Post further documented that the Bidens were intricatedly involved in the international business with truly shady, if not criminal figures.
“The guest list prepared by Hunter three weeks before the Café Milano dinner included Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and her husband, corrupt former Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov, who since has died,” the Post reported. “Baturina wired $3.5 million on Feb. 14, 2014, to Rosemont Seneca Thornton LLC, a Delaware-based investment firm co-founded by Hunter and Devon Archer, a former adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry.”
“The wires were flagged in suspicious activity reports provided by the Treasury to a Senate Republican inquiry into Hunter last year by the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee,” the Post added.
In October 2020, just prior to the presidential election, Fox News uncovered an email that indicated an apparent cut for Joe Biden in his son Hunter’s business dealings.
“One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of ‘remuneration packages’ for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm,” the report stated. “The email appeared to identify Hunter Biden as ‘Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,’ in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co.”
“The email includes a note that ‘Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate’,” the report continued. “A proposed equity split references ’20’ for ‘H’ and ’10 held by H for the big guy?’ with no further details. Fox News spoke to one of the people who was copied on the email, who confirmed its authenticity.”
Now that Joe Biden is the president, the American people are stuck with a president who appears to be involved in corrupt international dealings and appears to be owned by China. American journalism has gone from merely lying about the news to preventing the truth from coming to light. Disgraceful.
