As my colleague Bonchie reported earlier, a huge trove of Hunter Biden were just reported on by the NY Post.
There’s a ton of stuff in there including salacious video of Hunter Biden in regard to alleged drug use and sexual activity. But the key damaging takeaway for Joe Biden is that they appear to put a stake through his claim that he knew nothing about his son’s business dealings.

One email, for example, allegedly indicates that Hunter introduced Joe Biden to a Ukrainian businessman, an advisor to Burisma, while Joe was Vice President and the point man on Ukraine.
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.
But there’s more.
There was even the involvement of the White House in a conference call, according to one of the emails.
The Obama administration let a Democratic p.r. company that worked for Ukrainian energy firm Burisma take part in a conference call about an upcoming visit to Ukraine by then-Vice President Joe Biden, e-mails obtained by The Post show.
An associate at Blue Star Strategies then e-mailed a memo with minutes of the conference call hosted by the White House to a top Burisma executive, Vadym Pozharskyi, as well as to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, and Hunter’s business partner, Devon Archer, both of whom sat on Burisma’s board.
The trip, in December 2015, turned out to be the one during which Biden later bragged about forcing Ukrainian officials to fire a state prosecutor who was investigating Burisma by threatening to withhold a $1 billion US loan guarantee.
So if this is true, there was literally White House involvement with the call with the p.r. company for Burisma about Joe Biden’s upcoming trip. Pretty hard to say that Biden didn’t know anything and/or it had nothing to do with his position in the administration.
Expect more to come as people delve deeper into the trove of emails. It’s going to be an interesting October.
