Joe Biden Won’t Deny Meeting Burisma Exec After Bombshell Hunter Biden Email Report
Joe Biden isn’t expressly denying ever meeting a Burisma executive who sought to meet with him, following the New York Post’s publication of Hunter Biden emails in which Burisma advisor Vadym Pozharskyi speaks of meeting the then-Vice President.
Pozharskyi thanks Hunter Biden for “giving [him] an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together” in an email published Wednesday.
Biden has previously denied meeting any Burisma personnel in connection to his son’s employment with the oligarch-owned gas company. Hunter Biden was paid $50,000 a month to work for the company, despite having no experience in the energy industry, while his father was Vice President.
The Biden campaign stated that it had no record of a meeting with Pozharskyi on the then-Vice President’s official schedule. “We have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”
However, when asked about the possibility of a meeting with Pozharskyi that wasn’t recognized on the Vice President’s official schedule by Politico, the Biden campaign declined to rule out the possibility, in fact clarifying that such a possible meeting would have been “cursory” and brief.
Biden claims that he has “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” And yet a high-ranking Burisma official has thanked Hunter Biden for a chance to meet the senior Biden, indicating a contradiction with the Democratic presidential candidate’s claims.
Biden publicly bragged about arranging for the firing of a Ukranian prosecutor investigating Burisma for financial improprieties while speaking at an event of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations organization.
