Email: Burisma paid Hunter Biden to shut down corruption probe

Unconfirmed message shows firm sought ‘influential’ U.S. officials

Burisma hired Hunter Biden while his father was vice president because the Ukrainian natural gas firm wanted high-ranking U.S. officials to express support in an effort to shut down investigations against the company’s owner, according to an unconfirmed email reported Thursday by Fox News.

Anchor Tucker Carlson said he obtained exclusive access to the email, which was among others reported Wednesday and Thursday by the New York Post. The paper said the emails came from a computer purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden that was dropped off at a Delaware repair shop in April 2019 and never retrieved.


Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the Burisma board on which Hunter Biden served for a total of $3.1 million, emailed Biden and his business associate, Devon Archer, on Nov. 2, 2015, with a list of the “deliverables” he sought from them.

Burisma’s owner, Nikolay Zlochevsky, was the target of a bribery investigation in the U.K. at the time.

Pozharskyi, Carlson said, told Biden and Archer 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.

The Burisma executive said the objective of the visits was to “bring positive signal/message and support on Nikolay’s issue to the Ukrainian top officials above with the ultimate purpose to close down for any cases/pursuits against Nikolay in Ukraine.”

Carlson said that while he and his investigative team cannot prove the emails came from Hunter Biden’s laptop, “every detail that we could check, including Hunter Biden’s personal email address at the time, suggests they are authentic.”

“If these emails are fake, this is the most complex and sophisticated hoax in history,” he said. “It almost seems beyond human capacity. The Biden campaign clearly believes these emails are real. They have not said otherwise. We sent the body of them to Hunter Biden’s attorney and never heard back.”

Carlson said it “couldn’t be clearer” what Burisma wanted from Hunter Biden.

“Burisma wanted Hunter Biden’s father to get their company out of legal trouble with the Ukrainian government,” he said. “And that’s exactly what happened.”
