Contradicting Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's claim that he had nothing to do with his son Hunter Biden's business dealings, The New York Post obtained an email proving the opposite was true.
The New York Post continued: "Less than eight months after Pozharskyi thanked Hunter Biden for the introduction to his dad, the then-vice president admittedly pressured Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk into getting rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin by threatening to withhold a $1 billion U.S. loan guarantee during a December 2015 trip to Kiev".
The story, which claimed to have unearthed "smoking gun" emails about the relationship between Biden, his son Hunter and a Ukrainian energy executive, has sparked questions over its veracity because it does not prove that the former vice president talked with the businessman in question and includes evidence allegedly obtained by a laptop fix store owner and presented to the lawyer of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Hunter Biden was reportedly making over $80,000 a month to serve on the board of the company, despite having no experience in the energy sector, raising questions about whether his position was actually about getting access to the Obama White House. In it, he thanks the younger Biden "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 explosive report from JustTheNews.com is shedding new light on Hunter Biden's dealings during the eight years of the Obama administration; showing the Vice President's son was provided a Secret Service security detail on hundreds of flights.
The newspaper reported that the recovered data came from an abandoned laptop and hard drive at a fix shop near DE in April 2019.
Asked via text by an AP reporter how long he had the hard drive, Giuliani replied: "You're interested in the wrong thing".
Hunter Biden's legal eagles claim he was "not a member of the management team".

If Biden did meet with Pozharskyi, he was not the only USA official who may have done so. "They take him down".
"This story is a microcosm of something that I think we can expect to happen a lot over the next few weeks, and I think demonstrates why platforms having clear policies that they are prepared to stick to is really important", said Evelyn Douek, a Harvard Law School lecturer who studies the regulation of online speech. "He lied to you over and over because he's trying to cover up a massive pay-to-play scandal at the heart of his vice presidency".
Dangling a $1-billion loan in front of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk in 2015, the deal was that if they wanted the greenbacks, they had to get rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
