Smoking gun emails have emerged that show Hunter Biden received a lucrative contract just days before his then-vice president father traveled to Ukraine and withheld U.S. aid from the government in 2015.
Joe Biden infamously bragged about his “$1 billion loan guarantee” quid-pro-quo meeting that took place in December 2015 in Ukraine.
Years later, during a Council on Foreign Relations panel, Biden boasted to an audience about getting the prosecutor investigating Burisma, Viktor Shokin, fired.
Shokin was fired shortly after Hunter Biden joined Burisma, a notoriously corrupt Ukraine energy company, as a member of the board.
The company paid Hunter $50,000 a month to sit on the board, despite having no experience in the sector and not even being able to speak Ukrainian.
In his boastings, Biden also implicated then-President Barack Obama in that exchange:
“You have no authority…you’re not the President…” Biden said Ukraine government officials responded.
To which Biden smugly replied, “Call him.”
