Hunter Biden has found himself in the news more than his father lately, even though Joe Biden is the one actually running for president.
At the center of everything is Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Ukrainian energy giant Burisma, a position former Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski, who also served on the board, confirmed was only given to Hunter due to his last name.
An appointment with a purpose
One way to get foreign governments off your back is to involve a prominent name from that country in profiting off of your company. That, according to Kwasniewski, is exactly that Burisma was thinking when it decided to ask Hunter Biden to join its board.
For the use of his family name, Hunter Biden was allegedly paid at least $50,000 per month. Considering that Hunter Biden had no experience in the energy sector, that he did not speak the language, and that he never traveled to Ukraine during his time on the board, what other conclusions could one reach?
Kwasniewski, who joined the board around the same time that Biden did, stated, “I understand that if someone asks me to be part of some project it’s not only because I’m so good, it’s also because I am Kwasniewski and I am a former president of Poland.”
“And this is all inter-connected. No-names are a nobody. Being Biden is not bad. It’s a good name.”
Even as Kwasniewski revealed why Hunter Biden was put on the board, he tried to justify the salary for the “work” he did while he was a member of Burisma Holdings.
Kwasniewski stated, “He collected information. He was useful for us because he knew something that we didn’t know.”
Now, a college student with a penchant for research might have done the same job, but we are being led to believe that Hunter Biden, a man known for his love of drugs, alcohol, and strip bars, was being paid more than $500,000/year for his knowledge of “corporate governance.”
The more likely reality, though, was that Burisma knew a lot of eyes were on the company and they were less likely to endure an investigation when the son of the vice president of the US was sitting on its board.
Former Ukrainian officials have already stated as much. Sooner or later, the truth is going to come about this as well as the influence Joe Biden used to lock down this position for his son.
The Ukrainian government recently announced it was reopening its investigation into Burisma and its co-founder Mykola Zlochevsky, who also served as the Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources for Ukraine, so we may soon find out far more information about Joe Biden’s role in all of this.
