An campaign ally defending Joe Biden over allegations Hunter Biden exploited his father’s government position once lobbied on behalf of a Russian energy company.
On Wednesday, the New York Post reported on Amos Hochstein:
About four months after Hunter Biden’s correspondence with (Vadym) Pozharskyi, (Devon) Archer forwarded Hunter Biden an email chain with the subject line “tax raise impact on Burisma production,” which included Pozharskyi saying that the Ukrainian cabinet had submitted new tax legislation to the country’s parliament. “If enacted, this law would kill the entire private gas production sector in the bud,” Pozharskyi wrote. In the Sept. 24, 2014, email, Pozharskyi also said he was “going to share this information with the US embassy here in Kyiv, as well as the office of Mr Amos Hochstein in the States.” At the time, Hochstein was the State Department’s newly appointed special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs.
