Hunter Biden failed to disclose $400,000 in payments he received from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma on his tax returns according to yet more revelations contained on his Delaware laptop, according to NBC News.
“In 2014 you joined the Burisma board and we still need to amend your 2014 returns to reflect the unreported Burisma income,” wrote Hunter Biden’s business partner Eric Schwerin in a 2017 email, NBC reported.
In 2014, Hunter Biden’s father — President-elect Joe Biden
— was serving as vice president of the United States.
Hunter Biden sat on the board of Burisma from 2014 to 2019.
The story bandwagons onto a series of exclusive reports about the Biden laptop published by The Post in October.
NBC News was provided the email by Robert Costello, an attorney for Rudy Giuliani and noted that they “could not independently verify whether the email is authentic and unaltered.”
The story by NBC News reporter Tom Winter does not mention any of The Post’s past reporting into the laptop. In the days before the presidential election, the same reporter wrote that his own news network would be unable to cover questions surrounding the laptop, citing a variety of reasons.
“Dozens of former intelligence officials have said the story has the hallmarks of a Russian intelligence operation,” Winter and colleague Ken Dilanian noted in the piece.
In addition to the mystery $400,000, a new report from the Daily Caller also revealed emails showing that Hunter Biden referred to his father Joe Biden
and a Chinese businessman “office mates” in a September 2017 missive.
The reference came when Hunter Biden made a request for keys to the general manager of a Washington, DC, office building.
“[P]lease have keys made available for new office mates,” Hunter Biden wrote in the email reviewed by The Caller which listed his father Joe, along with stepmother Jill Biden, uncle Jim Biden and Gongwen Dong, described as an “emissary” for the Chinese energy giant CEFC.
The mystery $400,000 and Chinese connections adds new layers of questions to a Justice Department investigation of Hunter Biden, which has been going on since 2018.
The probe only came to public knowledge this week when Hunter Biden confirmed in a statement that he had been contacted by the US Attorney’s office in Delaware.
