With the U.S. presidential election only 20 days away, a big October surprise emerged when Hunter Biden’s alleged email communications with a Ukraine energy company were exposed by the U.S. media, along with numerous photos and videos of the young Biden. The U.S. Senate has been involved in the investigation.
An exclusive report from the New York Post on Wednesday exposed three of Hunter Biden’s alleged emails. One of them was dated April 13, 2014, the time frame when Hunter just joined the board of Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma. In an alleged email to the board members of the company, Hunter mentioned his father several times, using Joe Biden’s influence to negotiate a higher salary for himself. Hunter’s salary at Burisma was reportedly up to $50,000 a month.
In another alleged email, Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, asked Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” to help the company.
In an email dated April 2015, Pozharskyi thanked Hunter for giving him the opportunity to meet with Joe Biden in D.C.
These exposed emails contradict Joe Biden’s previous claim that he had never spoken to his son about Hunter’s overseas business dealings.
In 2016, one year after Joe Biden met with Pozharskyi, Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing Viktor Shokin, a prosecutor who was leading corruption investigations into Burisma and its founders. Biden achieved this by threatening to withhold $1 billion in aid.
“Within 6 hours, if the prosecutor is not fired, you are not getting the money. (Expletive), they are fired.”
After being sacked, Shokin revealed that suspects on his investigation list included Hunter Biden.
The emails exposed by the New York Post all came from a laptop with a Beau Biden Foundation sticker on it. It was sent to a computer repair shop with water damage, but no one came to pick it up. Later, the shop owner decided to notify the FBI.
In December of last year, the FBI obtained the hard drive of the laptop, while former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani had obtained a copy of the hard drive prior to the FBI’s seizure.
On the same day these emails were disclosed by the media, the US Senate’s Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee began an investigation. The chairman of the committee, Ron Johnson, said that his team has been in contact with the person who provided the emails.
After the emails published on Wednesday created a stir, Giuliani revealed on Twitter that there is “much more to come.”
