An exclusive photo obtained by Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” shows former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter golfing with a Ukranian gas company executive.
The 2014 photo features Biden, his son and Devon Archer, who served on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings, enjoying themselves on a golf outing in the Hamptons.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson displayed the photo during a segment featuring Peter Schweizer, author of “Secret Empires,” who spent three years investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine and China.
The photo was reportedly taken in August 2014, and Hunter was hired by Burisma in April 2014 — he was with the company up until this year.
Hunter Biden was employed by Burisma, earning a salary of up to $50,000 a month, and as vice president, his father threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees if Ukraine did not fire a top prosecutor investigating corruption — the prosecutor was investigating Burisma Holdings.
Biden openly spoke of this, as seen below:

This is part of what President Donald Trump asked the Ukrainian president to get to the bottom of in the infamous phone call the media is salivating over.
In addition to Hunter Biden saying he and his father had spoken “just once” about his work in Ukraine, the elder Biden told Fox News last month in Iowa that he never discussed his son’s foreign business dealings with him.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden said, before pivoting to the president. “I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him why is he on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader. You should be looking at Trump.”
Carlson asked Schweizer what it all added up to.
“Well, I think it adds up to is the Biden family cashing in through corruption by proxy,” the author replied.
“Joe Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, can’t take payments from foreign entities, that would have to be disclosed — that would be easy to catch. But you set up your adult kids, in the case of the Bidens.”
Schweizer noted that Biden was the point person for the Obama administration for two countries, China and Ukraine.
“And, lo and behold, the two countries that Hunter Biden ends up doing the most business in overseas were China and Ukraine,” he added. “The amounts of money are astronomical and the deals he got have absolutely nothing to do with his background. He had no expertise to sell, he had no skill set to sell to the Chinese or Ukrainians.”
Hunter also got the lucrative gig just a couple of months after being discharged from the Navy for cocaine use.

Yet, the news media routinely reports that there is “no evidence” of corruption here.
