- An official with Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings purportedly emailed Hunter Biden a list of ‘deliverables’ in November 2015 that included meetings with high-ranking U.S. officials and an effort to ‘close down’ investigations of the company’s owner.
- The unconfirmed emails reported Thursday by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson.
- The email shows Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi telling Biden that the ‘ultimate purpose’ of hiring a public relations firm was to end investigations against Burisma.
An executive at Burisma Holdings told Hunter Biden in November 2015 that he wanted high-ranking U.S. officials to express their support for the Ukrainian energy firm as part of an effort to shut down investigations against the company’s owner, according to an unconfirmed email Fox News reported Thursday.
According to Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson, Vadym Pozharskyi, a Burisma executive, emailed Biden and his business associate, Devon Archer, on Nov. 2, 2015, laying out a series of “deliverables” he sought for the company.
Biden and Archer served on Burisma’s board of directors at the time. They were paid more than $80,000 a month in that role despite having no experience in the European energy sector.
At the time, the owner of Burisma, Nikolay Zlochevsky, was the target of an investigation in the U.K. for bribery. There is some dispute over whether he was under investigation in Ukraine as well.
According to Carlson, Pozharskyi told Biden and Archer that he wanted “high-ranking U.S. officials to express their ‘positive opinion of Burisma.’”
“The scope of work should also include organization of a visit of a number of widely recognized and influential current and/or former US policy-makers to Ukraine in November,” Pozharskyi wrote in the email, which was reviewed but not authenticated by the Daily Caller News Foundation.
