House Republicans are closing in on the Biden family’s scandals. Their reckoning is almost here.
Because these leaked emails expose the Biden family corruption once and for all.
According to recently made public emails, a Russian TV producer gushed over Hunter Biden’s election to the board of the Ukrainian natural gas business Burisma Holdings in an effort to meet with dad Joe.
Shailagh Murray, the Biden communications director, referred to the 2014 letter from NTV producer Natalya Usenko to the vice president’s office as “charming,” but no interview was ever granted.
Following a lawsuit from the right-wing group America First Legal Foundation, which was established by former top Trump aide Stephen Miller, Usenko’s memo and Murray’s comments were made public by the National Archives.

“Mr. Hunter Biden has recently become a member of Committee of Directors of Burisma company. We would like to congratulate him and wish him good luck!” Usenko composed.
“Would you be so kind to help us to organize an interview with Mr. Joseph Biden so that he could tell us his attitude towards and tell us if it will influence the foreign policy of the USA.”
In other emails made available by the Archives, Hunter is seen advising his father’s office on how to handle press enquiries about his nomination to the Burisma board, which was announced on May 12, 2014.
“Thanks for talking to me,” Joe Biden press secretary Kendra Barkoff said to Hunter Biden the following day. “Let me know who I should refer folks to.”
“What exactly are they asking?” Hunter responded to Barkoff. “For the time being I’d just refer them to my office.”
Later, Joe added: “If anything beyond referring questions to my office is required from you or counsel, you can contact Heather King at Boise [sic] Schiller.” He also instructed Barkoff to direct any concerns to his business partner, Eric Schwerin.
The White House counsel’s office was alerted about Hunter’s appointment on the same day ABC News reporter Ann Compton questioned Barkoff about whether Biden was aware of it during his travel to Ukraine a month earlier.
In her off-the-record reply, Barkoff said the following, which she then ran by Hunter for approval:
“Hunter Biden is a private citizen and a lawyer. The Vice President does not endorse any particular company and has no involvement with this company. For any additional questions, I refer you to Hunter’s office.”
“OFF the record doesn’t help. I would however be willing to use this with or without quoting YOU,” Compton told Barkoff.
Due to the National Archives’ refusal to accept the term “off-the-record,” the entire dialogue was made public.
On May 12, 2014, Burisma made the announcement that Hunter would be joining its board of directors and offered him a $1 million annual salary despite the fact that he had no prior experience in the energy industry.
The president’s son “is Burisma’s agent and subject to FARA (Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938) registration because he was an officer of Burisma and represented Burisma’s interests to the Office of the Vice President in addition to advising on a public relations matter,” Miller’s nonprofit claims, citing communications between Hunter and Barkoff.

Additionally, the US Attorney’s Office in Delaware is apparently looking into Hunter Biden, 53, on suspicion of tax fraud, unlawful foreign lobbying, money laundering, and lying about his drug usage on a gun purchase form.
