Smoking Gun: Hunter Biden’s “Pay for Play” Contract/Emails Revealed From Days Before the Infamous “Son of a Bitch Was Fired” Trip to Ukraine
Joe Biden infamously bragged about his “$1 billion loan guarantee” quid-pro-quo meeting that took place in December 2015 in Ukraine. Joe couldn’t help bragging about getting the prosecutor investigating Burisma, Viktor Shokin, fired years later in a Council on Foreign Relations panel. In his boastings, Biden also implicated then-President Obama in that exchange: “You have no authority…you’re not the President…” to which Biden smugly replied “Call him.”
But more shocking than this admission are emails that strongly suggest Hunter Biden’s involvement in this effort to “close down for [sic] any cases/pursuits against Nikolay [Zlochevsky] in Ukraine.” The following outlines a thorough investigation by Badlands Media co-founder Jon Herold:
Sally Painter, a former Clinton administration senior advisor from 1993-1995 and co-founder/COO of Blue Star Strategies, reached out to Hunter Biden in a February 2011 email asking if Hunter would consider a position on the board of the Truman National Security Project.
A month later, Painter emailed Hunter back and said “U were a big hit as expected…I think you will get the actual offer in the next three weeks.” Jake Sullivan, the current National Security Advisor, would later join the Truman National board in 2017. This email string and the subsequent offer lay the foundation of Painter’s relationship with Hunter predating this incredible discovery.
Fast forward to October 2015. “Joan Mayer” of Rosemont Seneca emailed Hunter and Eric Schwerin a schedule for the next week that included the line “*HOLD- Breakfast with Devon, Vadym & Sally Painter- TBD”. “Vadym” refers to Vadym Pozharskyi, the “fixer” for shady oligarchs, according to a New York Post article in October 2020. Vadym had previously asked Hunter “how you could use your influence to convey a message…to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions” regarding Burisma’s leader and on going investigations.
About a week later on October 31, 2015, Hunter’s former partner, Devon Archer, would forward an email from Blue Star Strategies to Vadym, Hunter, and Schwerin. Sally Painter was Cc’d on the original email. The subject reads “Revised Burisma Proposal, Contract and Invoice.” While the contract itself is not available for download, the context of the follow-up emails strongly suggests a “pay for play” operation immediately before Joe Biden’s famous “Son-of-a-bitch was fired” trip to Ukraine.
Within days, Vadym replied back to Archer, Schwerin, and Hunter with the following:
