A 2014 Hunter Biden email about Ukraine looks “suspicious” as if it could have come from classified information, a leading GOP senator claimed.
Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said the April 12, 2014 message to one of the first son’s business associates resembles documents the State Department gives to members of the Senate when they travel abroad.
“It reads like one of those scene-setters — very detailed information in terms of Ukraine,” Johnson told TUSEN News on Tuesday.
Hunter’s email to Devon Archer includes a detailed 22-point memo that the Biden scion describes as “thoughts after doing some research.”
Those “thoughts” included prescient predictions that Petro Poroshenko would be elected president of Ukraine next month and that “some sort of decentralization is likely to take place in the east.”
“If that doesn’t happen, the Russians will continue to escalate there [sic] destabilization campaign, which could lead to a complete takeover of the eastern region, especially Donetsk,” Hunter Biden wrote. “The strategic value is to create a land bridge for RU[ssia] to Crimea.”
The 1,300-word email — far more detailed and longer than anything else found on Hunter’s abandoned laptop — also referenced an upcoming trip to Ukraine by then-Vice President Joe Biden and seemed to favor the elder Biden. to acknowledge blunders.
“The announcement of my boys [sic] upcoming trips should be characterized as part of our advice and thinking — but what he will say and do is not in our hands,” Hunter Biden wrote. “In other words, it could be a really good thing, or it could end up creating too much of an expectation. We have to temper expectations about that visit.”
Johnson noted that the email was written at the same time “when Devon Archer and Hunter Biden were trying to get on the board [Ukrainian energy company] Burisma and get their $3.4 million payday as they try to prove their worth.
“Three days later, Vice President Biden meets Devon Archer at the White House,” he said. “Then [Joe Biden] goes to Ukraine and is listed as the face of the Obama administration in Ukraine.”
“Clearly Hunter Biden is selling access to information,” Johnson added. “Does that have anything to do with some of the secret documents that Vice President Biden was siphoning off at his residence? I don’t know, but it looks incredibly suspicious.”
However, an official with knowledge of Ukrainian intelligence affairs scoffed at the idea that the email might have come from classified information, telling The Post late on Wednesday: “It sounds like something he got from Wikipedia or a YouTube interview – like a paraphrased version of open-source reporting.”
Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were both appointed to Burisma’s board of directors, with the first son getting a whopping $83,000 a month — equivalent to $1 million a year — despite having no experience in the energy industry , according to information stored on his infamous laptop.
But that salary was cut after Joe Biden left office and Hunter Biden resigned from the board of directors in April 2019, when his business dealings began to complicate his father’s bid for the White House.
Johnson — who has been investigating Hunter Biden’s controversial overseas business dealings with fellow Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) — added, “We’re starting to stitch together this sordid tale of filth and corruption.”
In October 2020, The Post exclusively revealed the existence of Hunter Biden’s laptop with a blockbuster scoop on how he introduced his father to a top Burisma executive in 2015.
An email also revealed that Vadym Pozharskyi, who advised the company’s board of directors, had asked Hunter Biden for “advice on how you might use your influence” on behalf of Burisma.
