Joe Biden denied speaking with his son Hunter Biden about his business dealings at least eight times. Biden asserted that he and Hunter “never discussed” his business dealings. Now, newly unveiled emails show that Hunter introduced then-Vice President Biden to Vadym Pozharskyi, an advisor to Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma, which Hunter was a board member of.
This is just the latest evidence that Joe Biden lied, and he in fact knew about and spoke with Hunter about Burisma. State Department official Amos Hochstein confirmed Joe Biden told Hunter about conflict of interest concerns Hochstein had raised surrounding Burisma. Hunter Biden himself admitted his father told him “I hope you know what you are doing” and there is evidence Joe Biden golfed with Hunter’s Burisma business partner Devon Archer.
Instead of denying the substance of the newly unveiled emails, the Biden campaign has denied that any such meeting was on his “official schedules”. The Biden campaign admitted it would not “rule out the possibility that the former VP had some kind” of interaction with the Burisma executive.
The idea that Biden would meet with his family’s business partners isn’t far fetched – he’s done it on at least two other occasions. In 2011, Biden set up an Oval Office meeting for the business partners of his son-in-law Howard Krein with Barack Obama. Last year, Hunter Biden admitted “he introduced his father to one of his new business partners” in China during a 2013 trip to Beijing.
Instead of answering questions, Biden has berated reporters and voters who dare ask questions about Burisma. In 2019, Biden called a voter a “damned liar,” “old,” and “fat,” when he asked Biden about Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine. Also, last year Biden snapped at a reporter when asked about Burisma, saying: “I’m not gonna respond to that.”
Joe Biden owes Americans answers. He allowed and encouraged his son to profit off his public service. Biden has been in Washington for 47 years – its time for him to retire the family business.
