The Senate Homeland Security Committee has opened an investigation into the emails published by The New York Post on Wednesday morning that reveal new information about Hunter Biden‘s dealings in Ukraine while his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, was the public face of the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.
This exclusive front-page story details the emails that The Post obtained on a hard drive, which unveil that Hunter Biden introduced his father to an advisor to Burisma Holdings, a corrupt Ukrainian energy firm that the younger Biden sat on the board of, less than a year before then-Vice President Biden asked Ukrainian officials to fire a prosecutor investigating the company.
Making matters more controversial, this is the first time that the public has learned of the April 2015 meeting in Washington, DC between the current Democratic presidential nominee and this Burisma advisor, whose name is Vadym Pozharskyi.
In an interview with Fox News, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), the Chair of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said, “We regularly speak with individuals who email the committee’s whistleblower account to determine whether we can validate their claims.”
“Although we consider those communications to be confidential,” he added, “because the individual in this instance spoke with the media about his contact with the committee, we can confirm receipt of his email complaint, have been in contact with the whistleblower, and are in the process of validating the information he provided.”
This revelation directly contradicts what former Vice President Biden stated publicly in September 2019, that “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together,” Pozharskyi wrote to Hunter on April 17, 2015.
In another email to Hunter from May 12, 2014, Pozharskyi asked him “urgently” for some “advice on how you could use your influence” to “stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions” against Burisma.
More will be revealed about the story once this nascent Senate investigation yields more information.

Don Lemon loses it on Senators Manchin, Sinema for holding up voting bill: ‘that’s bull***’
CNN’s Don Lemon cursed out those “moderates” such as Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “who are blocking people’s access to the voting booth, they want to use Dr. King conveniently. They’re the biggest hypocrites on the planet.”
“If Sinema and Manchin really want to honor the legacy of Dr. King and all the people who fought for civil rights and voting rights in this country, what they would do is to carve out for voting rights with the filibuster” he continued.
“But for some reason they are stuck with these rules that are backwards…The filibuster has been used to block civil rights legislation forever and so we need to stop that. We evolved. Just because there is a rule doesn’t mean that that rule can’t change. The Constitution is amended. So it’s time to amend the rules. And fight and, and protect the most sacred right that we have as Americans, and that is the right to vote.”
Lemon then quotes Dr. Martin Luther King about a “white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice….who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.”
That sounds like the moderates, says Lemon, referring to Senators Manchin and Sinema. “And you’re supposed to be a Democrat who espouses to the ideals of Dr. King. That’s bull***t that’s B.S.”
"That’s bull … That’s BS. And you should be ashamed of yourself. You are a hypocrite." @donlemon unloads on lawmakers who want to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. while standing in the way of voting rights reform by opposing the filibuster. pic.twitter.com/UKX0tQGI2E
