The story of Joe Biden’s son Hunter and his lucrative work for an energy company in Ukraine is coming up once again.
An explosive new report details email communications which suggest Joe Biden knew that Hunter was using the fact that Biden was vice president to advance his position.
The media is dismissing this, but there is no getting around the optics. This does not look good for Joe Biden.
The New York Post broke the story:
Hunter Biden emails show leveraging connections with his father to boost Burisma pay
Hunter Biden discussed leveraging his connection to his father in a bid to boost his pay from a Ukrainian natural gas company, according to an email he sent around the time he joined the firm’s corporate board.
In a lengthy memo to his then-business partner, Devon Archer, who already sat on the Burisma board, Biden repeatedly mentioned “my guy” while apparently referring to then-Vice President Joe Biden.
Under President Barack Obama, the elder Biden was the point person for US policy toward Ukraine, and he held a press conference there with Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on April 22, 2014.
Hunter Biden’s email to Archer is dated a little more than a week earlier.
“The announcement of my guys [sic] upcoming travels should be characterized as part of our advice and thinking- but what he will say and do is out of our hands,” Hunter Biden wrote on April 13, 2014.
“In other words it could be a really good thing or it could end up creating too great an expectation. We need to temper expectations regarding that visit.”
One of the most shocking aspects of this story is how social media companies tried to block it. They don’t want the American people to be able to read this report.
This is a Big Tech information coup. This is digital civil war.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was even locked out of her account for sharing the story.

This is not acceptable.
