Steve Bannon and Rudy Giuliani have given evidence to the NY Post that despite claiming he has “never spoken to [his] son about his overseas business dealings” in fact, met with an advisor to the board of Burisma. Either Biden is lying about his conversations with his son, or he forgot his own corruption.
If you don’t remember, Burisma is the Ukrainian company where Biden’s son Hunter was employed, despite having no relevant qualifications. Burisma is also the company that was being investigated by the Ukrainian prosecutor whom VP Biden demanded Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk fire.
Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion of US aid to the country if the prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, was not fired. The Vice President boasted about the quid pro quo demand for the money to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018, saying “I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”
The NY Post’s Emma-Jo Morris and Gabrielle Fonrouge report:
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 blockbuster correspondence — which flies in the face of Joe Biden’s claim that he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” — is contained in a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer.
