Emails from Hunter Biden’s recovered laptop allegedly indicate that then-Vice President Biden met with his son’s Ukrainian, Russian, and Kazakhstani business partners at a dinner in Washington, DC.
Hunter Biden evidently hosted the dinner on April 16, 2015, while Joe Biden was vice president. It was reportedly held in the private “Garden Room” at Café Milano, billed as “Where the world’s most powerful people go.”
The following day, the younger Biden received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, who is an executive with Burisma, thanking him for the introduction to his father, the New York Post reported.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together,” Pozharskyi stated. “It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”
During that period of time, Hunter Biden was apparently pulling down $83,333 a month while sitting on the board of Burisma.
There was a very impressive guest list that he had compiled three weeks prior to the dinner. It included Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and her late husband, corrupt former Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov. Baturina notably wired $3.5 million to Rosemont Seneca Thornton LLC, which is a Delaware-based investment firm that was co-founded by Hunter Biden and Devon Archer, a former adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry.
Guests were notified that Joe Biden would be in attendance at the dinner: “Ok – the reason for the dinner is ostensibly to discuss food security,” Hunter Biden wrote on March 26 to Michael Karloutsos. His father was, at that time, the head of the Greek Orthodox Church. “Dad will be there but keep that between us for now. Thanks.”
“Everything is between us. All good!” Karloutsos replied. “What is the UN Food Program called? I know you mentioned your dad would probably join the dinner as well. Anyone else of note?”
The younger Biden cryptically added that the “most notable” other guest was “the Prime minister of a country I’ll tell you over phone.”
“Also CEO of WFPUSA [World Food Program USA] and a few other interesting people,” he remarked.
The dinner brings into question just how much Joe Biden knew about Hunter Biden’s business dealings. The president has denied knowing anything about them but substantial evidence is beginning to pile up that suggests otherwise.
Other attendees included three officials from Kazakhstan. Among those was Marc Holtzman, then chairman of the former Soviet republic’s largest bank, Kazkommertsbank. Also attending were a Mexican ambassador and representatives from the World Food Program USA.
Archer told Biden to “save a seat for your guy,” which seems to allude to Joe Biden attending, and then he added “and mine if he’s in town,” which was possibly a reference to Secretary Kerry.
WFP USA Founder Rick Leach and Kazakhstan banker Marc Holtzman both emailed Hunter Biden following the dinner to thank him.
“What a fantastic and productive evening – thank you!” Leach stated in an email.
“Deer [sic] Hunter, Thank you for an amazing evening, wonderful company and great conversation. I look forward to seeing you soon and to many opportunities to work closely together,” Holtzman wrote to Hunter Biden the following day.
Holtzman invited Archer and Hunter Biden to a “small private breakfast” with Kazakhstan Prime Minister Karim Massimov: “Prime Minister Massimov will be most delighted if you will please join us for a small breakfast at one table at the Willard Hotel, Holmes Suite from 8 am until 9 am,” Holtzman’s email declared. “There are several matters the Prime Minister is eager to discuss with you and he will be grateful for the opportunity to spend quality time together.”
In a 2016 email Hunter called Massimov a “close friend.”
Novatus, which is the company of Ukrainian oligarch and Massimov associate Kenes Rakishev, allegedly wired $142,300 to Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC, on April 22 2014 using a Latvian bank. The wire noted the cash was ostensibly meant for a “car.”
These interactions have led to further investigations by a number of federal agencies concerning Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings. President Biden could potentially be sucked into that case in light of his alleged attendance at the dinner.
Former President Trump’s White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is claiming that further details will surface concerning the meeting.
“It’s amazing how Joe Biden and Hunter Biden actually had a quid pro quo, and to accuse President Trump of using his influence to enrich his family was just not accurate,” Meadows said Wednesday on NewsMax TV’s “Stinchfield.”
“And now what we’re seeing is perhaps the real influence-peddling that took place was by then-Vice President Joe Biden,” he added.
“Now that the president is in the oval office,” Meadows stated during the interview, “yeah, well, we will see how this unfolds.”
Commenters on Twitter blasted the reported incident involving both Bidens:
Hunter Biden belongs in jail.

Remember that former business partner of Hunter who came forward and confirmed that Joe Biden was the "big guy" who got "10%?"
What was his name again? What even happened to him?

So when candidate Joe Biden told us he'd never talked with Hunter about the latter's business dealings he was choosing his words very carefully.
He was probably lying, as usual, but in any case meeting with Hunter's associates was for all intents and purposes equivalent. https://t.co/337IfHLZgr

I feel like reality might finally start catching up. Ukraine, laptop, Hunter, Covid, inflation… They can only peddle lies and ignore the truth for so long. Fairy tales eventually burst.

Liberals are too blind to see the blatant corruption with Hunter and “the big guy” all while they are still believing in the “Russian Dossier” that has been discredited for years. Guess masks cut off oxygen to the brain for them.
