Biden is in hot water and it’s no wonder why Twitter and Facebook have gone on a campaign to save him. The New York Post “bombshell” is damaging and there is more to come.
In typical Joe Biden fashion, his campaign released dueling responses to the story that now has everyone – including some in the mainstream media – digging.
Even the Politico is reporting that the Biden “would not rule out the possibility” that Biden met with an adviser to Burisma while he was Vice President in 2015. That meeting would have been initiated by a Burisma adviser asking Hunter – who was on the board – to use his influence.
The Post story included a screenshot of what the paper said was a 2015 email from Burisma adviser Vadym Pozharskyi to Hunter Biden, thanking him for “the opportunity to meet your father.” But the email doesn’t indicate whether Pozharskyi was describing a meeting that had already occurred or one intended to occur in the future. Nevertheless, the Post reported that the existence of such a meeting undercut Biden’s long-held assertions that he had no involvement with his son’s business dealings.
Biden’s campaign would not rule out the possibility that the former VP had some kind of informal interaction with Pozharskyi, which wouldn’t appear on Biden’s official schedule. But they said any encounter would have been cursory. Pozharskyi did not respond to a request for comment.
The email from the Burisma adviser, Vadim Pozarskyi, dated April 17, 2015, to Hunter said, “Dear Hunter, thank you 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.”
About a year later in March 2016, Biden would pressure the Ukrainian government to fire the country’s top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma for corruption.
Shokin was fired and the investigation disappeared into the wind.
Biden has repeatedly said, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”
In a contradiction to what they told the New York Post, team Biden issued another statement claiming the meeting didn’t happen, stating that it was not on his schedule for that day.
However, Biden has a history of not putting meetings for his son-in-law’s business partners on his schedule, Like the one below in 2011.
Politico reported yesterday that Joe Biden arranged an Oval Office meeting for his son-in-law’s business partners in 2011.
There’s a photo of it.
It was not on Biden’s “official schedule.” https://t.co/3ieUMAtAHy pic.twitter.com/ACBpwcwaOC

If you visit the obamawhitehouse.archives.gov website you can see that Joe Biden had gaps in his schedule that day that are three hours or more. Biden may be stupid but he knows if you are going to meet with someone shady don’t put it on your schedule.
