” … how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad.” NY Post


"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."  NY Post


Sadly, the MSM will insist on covering this up for Biden.  The NY Post is an exception that should be commended.  pl

    Biden’s response is his “calendar” has no record of this meeting. Or was that Biden’s teleprompter saying that. Not quite a fulsome denial, Joe. Do better.
    One can only assume anyone wanting a meeting of this level of political importance would have a photo record of it ….somewhere. Life in the public fishbowl is hard – even grinning campaign fund raising photos can come back and bite a candidate. Or the opposition can photo-shop a glass of wine in your hand even for local races.
    All of this demonstrates the only decision filter we have left is our “gut feeling”, our intuition; but only is we know it is not the trickster taking its place. And gut feelings are not emotions; they are deep knowing when it all makes internal sense.

  2. Deap says:

    Could this Hunter Biden release have been planned, so Biden can now finally drop out of the race and “spend more time with his family”?
    I believe DNC rules allow them to choose anyone they want to replace Biden; not necessarily Harridan Harris. Cue stage left waiting in the wings – Michelle Obama?
    Biden did do one thing right; he saved the Democrat Party from Bernie Sanders. But this did not save the Democrat Party from socialism.

  3. Chuck Light says:

    I suppose this presumes that what the Post has published is in fact true, and not a part of a disinformation campaign. Interesting how this suddenly appears three weeks before the election. I personally will wait for some kind of confirmation.

  4. Fred says:

    Facebook and Twitter are actively suppressing the story. On a bright note Obama’s coming out on the campaign trail for Biden next week. We should have a pool on how long it takes for a reporter to ask him about this.

  5. Deap says:

    Chuck, interesting how “impeachment” happened one day after the Hunter Biden computer was delivered to the FBI. What is really odd when Democrats were screaming Russia, Russia, Russia, it was really Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine. Now we need to learn why the mere mention of Crowdstrike cause the one segment of Ukrainian forces to go completely apoplectic.
    One needs a score card to understand which “Ukraine” one is talking about at any given time: pro-Russia Ukraine, pro-West Ukraiane, pro Ethnic German Ukraine, pro Novo-Rossyia Ukraine, etc, etc. Each faction has a totally different take on events and spokespersons.
    But one axiom holds true, when Democrats accuse the GOP of doing something, in fact Democrats are doing it themselves.
    PS: Obama may be coming out in support of Michelle to take the top place on the failing Biden-Harris ticket. Ya think? In fact, this deal may have been in the works ever since an Obama campaign operative worked with dropped out candidate Beto O’Rouke to explore how to get the DNC nomination without appearing on any ballot. And that was many months ago.

  6. JM Gavin says:

    Chuck Light,
    There is more than enough confirmed information about the Bidens and Burisma already.
    Senior State Department personnel believed that Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s payroll was a problem; this was reported to (then VP) Biden. Joe Biden then threatened to withhold funds to the Ukrainian government if they did not fire the prosecutor that happened to be pursuing Hunter Biden’s employer.
    Have you stopped to wonder why the Vice President of the United States cares about a prosecutor in Ukraine? Or why Donald Trump famously asked the Ukrainians to investigate the Bidens and Burisma? I suspect not. In light of that, I’m not surprised that you would disregard any new information on the subject, confirmed or not.
    Is it “by pure chance” that this came out now? No, this information was intentionally held back and released now. That doesn’t make it untrue. It’s called politics.
    What would constitute “confirmation?” You’re not going to get confirmation. Joe Biden is ethically challenged, and his family has gotten wealthy by peddling influence. We know this. If that’s okay, because OrangeManBad, then vote for Biden.

  7. Deap says:

    Biden is now admitting there may have been a “casual” meeting, and his calendar has some holes in when this meeting could have taken place. And it may be nothing more than that – a casual grab and grin meeting.
    I suspect these meet-up favors are part of both private and public life that come with the office. Looks bad more in retrospect than when it is happening, if indeed there as no substance other than giving the appearance of access.
    But since Biden lied about it so forcefully and on multiple occasions became very defensive about this son “career”, it is a real news story. Plus the fact the liberal media wanted it deep sixed SAP. Gives one pause there is more to it than just meeting an autograph hound.
    The dirty part is putting a proven lout like Hunter Biden on any board of directors for anything, so the guilty party is far more Burisma and every other organization that tried to exploit access to the Obama administration through the Hunter low-life link. that coincidentally included the passing of cash, and possible favors to wayward son.
    Why do the words QUID PRO QUO keep ringing in my ears – seems I have heard that phrase uttered somewhere else just recently. Acid test, what if Ivanka, Don Jr or Eric had been out “quid pro quoing” for bucks like grifter Hunter was pulling off during the Obama administration? Does that pass the smell test?
    Or do we just have a Pat Nixon’s humble cloth coat story here?

  8. Chuck Light says:

    JMG: I would agree that FBI confirmation that they received the computer/hard drive, and were able to obtain the emails from it, and could confirm that the emails the Post printed were from the computer/hard drive they in fact received would be sufficient. So far it is only “alleged” that the FBI received the computer/ hard drive.
    Regarding the firing of the prosecutor in Ukraine. It would appear that Vice President Biden was representing the policy of the United States in calling for the firing of the prosecutor. It was not only official United States policy (I know, Obama was not capable of policy), but also the policy of the European Union, and International Monetary Fund, and among others the Republican Senator from Wisconsin, Ron Johnson.
    And yes, I have stopped to wonder why Donald Trump has been so interested in Hunter Biden and Ukraine. I just came to different conclusions than you did. And my conclusions seem to track the conclusions of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russian interference in the 2016 election — that it was Russia and it was not the Ukraine.
    From what I have read on this subject, the FBI has declined (thus far) to comment. I will wait for Christopher Wray to confirm the details. It is the best I can do. I almost hope you are right. You would feel much better being right.
    And I already cast my ballot in the upcoming election. I wrote in Al Franken and Elizabeth Warren, because Senator Harris tarred and feathered Senator Franken because she saw him as a political competitor.

  9. turcopolier says:

    Looks like there are tens of thousands of E-mails on the hard drive along with porn, pics of Hunter, etc. I imagine that the NY Post is going to meter them out day by day.

  10. Deap says:

    Rudy Gulliani has the “alleged” hard drive and is providing commentary about what he has been finding. Rudy Gulliani Common Sense (dot) com. Red State is also providing his video link commentary about this alleged hard drive content.
    Certainly comments here by those who have known Biden personally, indicate Biden is not nor has been “everyone’s favorite uncle”, but in fact a mean SOB. Listen to what Guliani has to say, and he has been tracking the Ukraine connections for some time now, then make up your own mind.
    It is mind boggling and hard to digest, but not anything that has not been reported about both the Clintons and the Bidens. Yet, for the past 3/5 years we have also been forced to listen to virtually the exact same charges against Trump- money grubbing, influence peddler, with rapacious family members.
    At this state of our polarized nation, my guess is this will not move the needle one way or the other at this late date. People are making their choices knowing upfront all politics and misuse of the government agencies today is now business as usual. Founders warned us and we lost this battle by inches over decades.
    Thank you President Trump for exposing and pushing back. You are a hero in that regard. Few others would have had the focus or physical resilience to go through these past 3/5 years. Biden has faded in just the past three months.
    Carry on and may this continue to be one of the most unusual chapters in our nation’s history. We have weathered far worse than mere personal corruption.

  11. TV says:

    Allegedly the FBI got their hands on this laptop back in Dec.
    Who says that the FEEBS (and the DOJ) are not thoroughly corrupt defenders of the swamp?
    Remember the photo of FBI agents taking a knee?

  12. A.I.S. says:

    Some fun facts:
    1: Burisma is pretty much B- to C tier turf. More notable Ukrainian oligarchs like Pinchuk hired more important americans like Chelsea Clinton, and did so in a more “proper” way by having them in high positions of various “charitable enterprises”.
    2: The “corrupt” prosecutor got poisoned twice while doing his job. Nobody has so far tried to kill his supposedly “more anti corruption” successor.
    If nobody tried to kill you when you are the chief prosecutor of Ukraine, you are definitly doing things wrong. This does not mean that people trying to kill you means your doing it right, but if you catch Flak you are over the right target.

  13. BillWade says:

    Rudy Gulliani has yet to disclose the Biden-China escapades “way too much to sort through quickly” but promises to start getting the info out today.
    I’ll bet somebody is in the wings to replace Biden. I’ve heard that Kamala is a Hillary Clinton resource.
    Best name I’ve heard yet for Kamala, “Pol Pot in a pantsuit”.

  14. fakebot says:

    Biden’s not like Sanders who wants to grandfather a movement. He may be aiming for a legacy of putting America onto a path of sustainable development, but like Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society it could be flawed and I don’t think he wants to get too deeply involved in the kind of plans the hard Left desire. For him it’s enough to be seen as the man who got the ball rolling, but nothing more. Biden wants the title of president more than anything. He’s happy to pass that baton to Harris by the end of his first term if not sooner should he become president.
    I think questions remain about the origins of those emails, if they are in fact authentic or whether this is blackmail (Russia?). When the media, FBI, and Biden camp finally circle their wagons, that’s probably what they’ll try to hang their hats on like they did in 2016. Whatever they do, I think the damage can’t be fully undone and for all we know there may be another shoe to drop that might end Biden’s aspirations for the presidency. For now though he will lose the confidence of enough voters to tighten the race so that the polls don’t have Trump so far behind. The Democrats will not get the blowout they needed to convincingly win and dispel all claims of a contested election.

  15. Rick Merlotti says:

    The real scandal is that the US Pro Council to Ukraine (Sleepy Joe), along with his buddies Victoria Nuland and Christopher Steele, were neck-deep in the Maidan coup. A coup that brought the world closer to war. The Dems and MSM have pulled the old switcheroo, covering up the obvious crime with a confusing corruption story that few bother to try to figure out. Stupid Republicans go along so as to not upset their deep state masters, who own all the blackmail material on these fine public servants. GOP, break outta the narrative matrix or get crushed. The time is now for some real courage.

  16. Diana L Croissant says:

    Well, I must admit my belief that the news about Hunter’s laptop is most likely true. I did see the report about this find on FOX; therefore, I know many “swamp” residents don’t want to believe it’s a factual story. I call that “tactical ignorance.” The word “Ignorance”–as pointed out in the dictionary, stems from the verb “to ignore.”
    The man who received the computer so that it could be “cleaned” did admit his eyesight problem. It’s the same as mine: myopic retinal degeneration. (You may look the definition of that yourselves. Just don’t mistake it for macular degeneration.) It does not have anything to do with one’s cognition or intelligence.
    Soon it will become clear that the story is factual. The Democrats and their sychophants in the MSM will do all in their power to discredit the story. It won’t matter to many of us who have already cast our ballots–against Hunter’s hapless father.
    I think you’ll eventually have to assign Hunter a lower IQ score than Hillary’s. She had the sense to actually physically “clean” (excuse my split infinitive) her laptop by smashing it to bits. Hunter turned it over to someone else to “clean” it–someone with a sense of civic responsibility.

  17. Leith says:

    Strange that Hunter would have dropped off an antiquated laptop at a computer repair shop in Delaware when he lives and works in Los Angeles.
    There are hundreds of examples of the old KGB/FSB kompromat technique of leaving a briefcase, or safe, or purse, or wallet, or jacket pocket full of accidentally abandoned secrets. This one just updates it using a laptop.

  18. Deap says:

    fakebot, what kept Biden during his eight years as VP to Climate Change Barry from putting America on a “sustainable development path”.
    What exactly do you mean by that, not just the “oceans will stop rising and the earth will heal” babble. Steps1-9999 to get there, please. If Biden could not do this in his past 8 years in high office with an unfettered climate changge portfolio, how will he pull it off in the next few months before his mental capacity entirely.

    i liked this question from jm gavin… “Have you stopped to wonder why the Vice President of the United States cares about a prosecutor in Ukraine?” i don’t believe chuck light answered it either… oh well…we all seem to see what we want to see, as opposed to what is right in front of us…

  21. j. casey says:

    Post=Murdoch, and I have heard some recommend watching Murdoch’s content as a “tell.” I had thought T was done-for, but the Murdoch-o-meter may beg to differ.

  22. BillWade says:

    I understand H. Biden brought in the laptop as water had gotten into it, not to get it “cleaned”. His laptop work was completed and the repair guy called him several times to come in and pick it up and pay for the work. Biden never responded. The repair guy eventually called the FBI as the content on the laptop was very questionable stuff. He also, wisely, made a backup copy of the hard drive. The FBI had told him, “people who don’t talk, don’t get hurt”. He waited months for the FBI to do something, they didn’t so he contacted Guiliani’s people.
    I would wager the repair guy is a MAGA guy but I certainly don’t know that.

  23. Serge says:

    The totally unnecessary tech company deplatforming of the Islamic State in 2014-2015 was the blueprint for the continuing deplatforming of the Right post-Charlotesville, which has turned into the situation we have in the modern day just a couple years later with tech companies using virtue signalling to mask overt meddling in our democracy. It’s always a slippery slope with these leftists, one needs to remember that, whether it be homosexual rights or freedom of speech… the danger that these people pose to free society and the free exchange of ideas cannot be overestimated.

  25. Chuck Light says:

    james: You may not like this explanation, but the Financial Times did a fairly extensive article on the firing of Shokin. It is not hard to find rational explanations for the firing, unless you are looking under every rock for a conspiracy of the left:
    If you believe the Financial Times is a left wing fake news rag, all I can say is that the website Media Bias/Fact Check disagrees with you:
    Sorry if you found my brief explanation wanting. I’ll try harder to please you in the future.

  26. JohnH says:

    You can forget about any serious airing of Biden’ activities with Burisma,
    Burisma is Ukraine’s biggest energy company, which makes it of strategic interest to the Deep State. The Biden’s’ activities and rewards must therefore remain covert.

  27. Chuck Light says:

    It has been reported (The Hill, NBC News) that the FBI is now, and has been for some time (apparently before it allegedly obtained the hard drive from the computer purported to have belonged to Hunter Biden) investigating whether the emails are part of a foreign (Russian?) disinformation campaign involving Rudy Giuliani.
    Although the FBI has not confirmed this, as far as I can tell, this reporting leads me to believe that it has received a computer hard drive, and that it is investigating Rudy Giuliani and whether the computer is linked to Giuliani as part of a disinformation campaign.
    If so, it could be presumed that the emails may be false. I guess we will see sooner or later.

  28. fakebot says:

    Technological advancements in the next 10-20 years are making it real a possibility unlike before.

    “Fusion power plants could be one-to-one replacements for fossil fuel plants, and you wouldn’t have to restructure electrical grids for them,” Greenwald said. In contrast, renewable energy sources such as solar and wind “are not accommodated well by the current design of electric grids.”
    SPARC would only produce heat, not electricity. Once researchers have built and tested SPARC, they plan to construct the ARC (Affordable Robust Compact) reactor, which would generate electricity from that heat by 2035.

    Biden has pinned his presidential vision on these kind of initiatives:
    I’m not trying to make a defense of the more lunatic ideals of the hard Left nor am I suggesting we are at risk of extinction if we don’t make changes in the next 10 years, but renewable energy appears to be the way of the future and if the US doesn’t lead the way on it, another country or union, like China or Europe (if they get their act together), will. The Democrats are taking the much bolder steps to do precisely that. Republicans are lagging on this front.

  31. TV says:

    Chuck Light
    How can Chokan’s very existence or why he was fired be of ANY interest to the VP of the US?
    You don’t need to be a chef to smell hamburger burning.

  32. Chuck Light says:

    TV: Because interest in the pursuit of corruption in Ukraine was a policy of the Vice President’s boss, President Obama. And the US was deeply disappointed in Shokin’s (I think that is how his name is spelled) failure to vigorously pursue corruption. Shokin was also problematic for the International Monetary Fund and the European Union.
    I can’t access this article from the Financial Times because I don’t pay for subscriptions, but the first time I accessed and read it, before it put a cookie on my computer, it provided an explanation of the entire episode much more completely than I can and with much greater detail. Try it and see whether you can get through to the article.
    You could also just Google “Shokin fired explained” and you will find a lot of reports saying basically the same thing. There is an article in the Atlantic which attempts to explain why firing Shokin as a condition of a loan is different than the President demanding investigations into Biden and Burisma as a condition of appropriated military assistance, but I won’t go there.
    You may also find a letter from Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) strongly supporting US policy in Ukraine at that time. He has sort of done a 180 degree reversal recently, but in 2016 he was right there behind Biden.
    What seems to be clear, except to the right of the political spectrum, is that Vice President Biden was acting as a representative of the US and advancing US policy. And that he did nothing that the US did not support.
