Remember when Joe Biden said he never spoke to his son Hunter about his international business dealings?
Hunter Biden brought daddy Vice President Joe Biden, AKA, “The Big Guy,” to dinner with shady Ukrainian, Russian and Kazakhstani business partners, according to records uncovered on Hunter’s laptop.
The dinner took place on April 16, 2015 in the private “Garden Room” at Cafe Milano while Joe Biden was still US Vice President, The New York Post reported.
According to The Post, the guest list prepared by Hunter included Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and her husband, the crooked former mayor of Moscow. In 2014, Baturina wired $3.5 million to one of Hunter’s Delaware investment firms.
The day after dinner, Hunter Biden received an email from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive at Burisma Holdings, thanking him for introducing him to his father.
“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 on April 17, 2015.
“It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure.”
Hunter was also doing business with Kazakhstani businessmen and oligarchs.
Kazakhstan banker Holtzman emailed: “Deer [sic] Hunter, Thank you for an amazing evening, wonderful company and great conversation. I look forward to seeing you soon and to many opportunities to work closely together.”
Hunter’s associated Devon Archer was also invited to a private breakfast with Kazakhstan’s Prime Minister Karim Massimov: “There are several matters the Prime Minister is eager to discuss with you and he will be grateful for the opportunity to spend quality time together.”
Hunter Biden had business dealings with an associate of Massimov’s, oligarch Kenes Rakishev.
More from The New York Post reported:
The guest list prepared by Hunter three weeks before the Café Milano dinner included Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and her husband, corrupt former Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov, who since has died. Baturina wired $3.5 million on Feb. 14, 2014, to Rosemont Seneca Thornton LLC, a Delaware-based investment firm co-founded by Hunter and Devon Archer, a former adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry.
The wires were flagged in suspicious activity reports provided by the Treasury to a Senate Republican inquiry into Hunter last year by the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
Hunter told guests before the dinner that his father would be attending. In one email, he appears to use his role on the board of World Food Program USA as a cover story for the evening’s true purpose of introducing his father to his business associates.
“Ok – the reason for the dinner is ostensibly to discuss food security,” writes Hunter on March 26 to Michael Karloutsos, son of the then-head of the Greek Orthodox Church.
“Dad will be there but keep that between us for now. Thanks.”
Karloutsos replies: “Everything is between us. All good! … I know you mentioned your dad would probably join the dinner as well.”
t is unclear if everyone on Hunter’s list attended. Archer emailed Hunter before the event to say that Baturina did not want to come but her husband would attend.
“Yelena doesn’t want to steal Yuri’s Thunder, so she’ll be in town to meet with us but doesn’t want to come to dinner,” Archer wrote on March 20. “That was just her thoughts. We could insist.”
He finished the email: “Obviously save a seat for your guy (and mine if he’s in town.)”
Hunter replied: “I think your guy being there is more trouble than it’s worth- unless you have some other idea.”
