'Use your influence': Hunter Biden report undercuts father, upends campaign:
President Trump’s re-election team seized on a news report Wednesday alleging Joseph R. Biden, while vice president, was more involved in his son Hunter Biden’s lucrative overseas business dealings than he has admitted.
A laptop computer left at a Delaware repair shop last year included emails that appear to contradict Mr. Biden’s repeated insistence that he “never” spoke to his son about his business in Ukraine, Russia and China.
The “smoking gun” was an email from 2015 that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Ukraine energy company Burisma Holdings, allegedly sent to Hunter Biden thanking him for setting up a pow-wow with his father in Washington, according to the report by The New York Post.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads. --->READ MORE HERE

Emails cast doubt on Joe Biden's denials about Hunter's business ties:
Hunter Biden arranged for a Burisma Holdings big shot to meet with his dad, Vice President Joseph R. Biden, in Washington in April 2015, a year after he joined the corrupt firm’s board of directors and garnered millions of dollars in payments from a Ukraine oligarch, an email shows.
The email, obtained and posted on Wednesday by the New York Post, cast doubt on Democratic presidential candidate Biden’s repeated assertions that he knew nothing of Hunter’s lucrative business ties in Moscow, Ukraine and China.
A second 2014 email from the same Burisma official, Vadym Pozharskyi, asked the newly empaneled Hunter Biden to “use your influence” to stop political and government attacks on the natural gas company.
Vice President Biden bragged in 2018 that he got the state prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, fired though he says it was for corruption, not to help his son.
The 2015 email, if verified, shows that Hunter Biden did in fact leverage his dad’s position as vice president to “cash in,” as two Republican senators charged in a report on his finances earlier this month. --->READ MORE HERE
