Joe Biden has claimed that he had “never spoken to his son about his overseas business dealings,” and new emails prove that claim to be false.
Hunter Biden introduced his father to a top executive at the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma less than a year before then-Vice President Joe Biden pressured Ukrainian officials to fire the prosecutor who was investigating the company, emails leaked to the New York Post have revealed.
The Post reported:
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.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnenay commented on the bombshell revelation:
