News broke on Tuesday of hard evidence showing not only a connection between Hunter Biden and suspect international officials, but that he connected his father, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, to these individuals as well.
According to The New York Post, the evidence proves that Joe Biden did indeed pressure government officials in Ukraine into “firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.”
The meeting was mentioned in a thank you message from Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, supposedly sent to 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.
However, an earlier email in which the pair talked about Hunter’s possible employment with them in 2014, squarely within Biden’s tenure as vice president, showed Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.
It was just months later that the official thanked Hunter for introducing him to his dad, then-vice president Joe Biden, who admitted to pressuring Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk into getting rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin by threatening to withhold a $1 billion US loan guarantee during a December 2015 trip to Kiev.
“I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,” Biden bragged to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018.
“Well, son of a bitch. He got fired.”
At the time he was fired, Shokin had already made well known his intention and even “specific plans” to investigate Burisma (the company that employed Hunter and whose executives met with Joe Biden just before Biden’s interference in Shokin’s career) in an inquiry that that “included interrogations and other crime-investigation procedures into all members of the executive board, including Hunter Biden.”
Just after Hunter Biden became part of the company’s employ he was emailed with a message from the company board members with an “urgent issue” cited. Pozharskyi said that “the representatives of new authorities in power tend to quite aggressively approach N. Z. unofficially with the aim to obtain cash from him,” according to the Post. It was only after that attempt failed that “they proceeded with concrete actions” in the form of “one or more pretrial proceedings,” Pozharskyi wrote.
“We urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to convey a message / signal, etc .to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions,” he added.
All of these messages are in direct opposition to Joe Biden’s clear claim that he has had no dealings with his children’s businesses endeavors.
Political strategist Brian Glicklich broke the chain of events down in a Facebook post promoted by another political commentator when he said, “Just to be clear, the heart of the cover-up is not Joe Biden’s denial of a meeting with Vadym Pozharskyi.
“Burisma adviser Pozharskyi thanked Hunter Biden for ‘an opportunity to meet your father’ in an email sent in 2015, according to the stash of data given to the New York Post,” Glicklich wrote on Wednesday
“Eleven months after this meeting (that Biden claims never happened), Joe Biden used his political muscle as Vice President of the United States to demand that Ukraine’s President fire Ukraine’s chief prosecutor Viktor Shokin. Shokin had previously led an investigation into Burisma’s owner.
“Expect the next phase of this to be media acting in unison to claim the emails are phony.
“One wonders how the images on the same computer, of Hunter Biden in sexually explicit acts and using drugs, were faked as well. Or how they constructed what appears to be 40,000 fake emails.
“This is a moment when America learns about its politicians… and its media.”
