Hunter Biden’s inner circle in 2016 scrambled to put together a story explaining two years of unpaid taxes from a Ukrainian gas firm and were discussing offering evidence to federal officials investigating Biden’s business partner Devon Archer after federal authorities subpoenaed some of Hunter Biden’s business records, emails from a seized laptop shows, reports Just The News.
Burisma hired Hunter Biden to serve on its board in 2014 while Joe Biden served as vice president under Barack Obama.
The emails show that Hunter Biden made about $1 million in personal income that went reported.
“Hunter and I talked briefly this morning and feel good with where we are on the taxes and the narrative regarding that,” Eric Schwerin, an executive inside the Rosemont Seneca business empire where Hunter Biden worked, wrote to defense lawyers George Mesires and Michael MacPhail on April 14, 2016, as they tried to secure an agreement with federal authorities.
The team also started discussing whether Hunter Biden should file for an extension for his 2015 taxes and “begin the process of amending the 2014 returns to reflect the Burisma payments from 2014.”
Grand jurors in 2016 indicted Archer and six others on charges they arranged tribal bond issues in South Dakota and spent proceeds for personal purposes. He was convicted in 2018, but the case was reversed. In 2020, an appellate court reinstated the conviction.
Hunter Biden in his new book said his only misjudgment when he joined Burisma was not considering that Trump would become president in 2017.
“I have not done anything unethical and have never been charged with wrongdoing,” he said, adding: “What I do believe, in this current climate, is that it wouldn't matter what I did or didn't do. The attacks weren't intended for me. They were meant to wound my dad.”
“Knowing all of that now: No, I would not do it again,” Biden writes. “I wouldn't take the seat on Burisma's board. Trump would have to look elsewhere to find a suitable distraction for his impeachable behavior.”
