(RepublicanWire.org) – America First Legal, a non-profit law center that according to Influence Watch “aims to use litigation to oppose left-of-center policies”, announced some startling news on Twitter. They noted that due to their victorious Freedom of Information Act-related lawsuit against the National Archives, they finally got new documents “directly linking Joe Biden to Hunter’s profiteering in Ukraine” from the archives.
America First Legal had a rather lengthy Twitter thread on the subject. “Despite Joe Biden’s assertions that he had no involvement with Hunter’s appointment to Burisma, he signed off on the official statement in response to questions from reporters about whether Hunter’s position undermined the VP’s credibility in pushing anti-corruption measures,” they wrote showcasing a 2015 email exchange between a government official and Eric D. Schwerin, a Rosemont Seneca employee.
America First Legal noted that “Eric D. Schwerin, Hunter’s associate at Rosemont Seneca Advisors, LLC, corrected typos in Vice President Biden’s official statement.” The law center also revealed that “The VP’s office connected reporters (who were writing about Hunter’s appointment to Burisma) to Amos Hochstein, the ‘point’ person for International Energy Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, to provide a ‘unique and valuable perspective’ on the relationships in Ukraine.”
They further reported that “Wall Street Journal journalist Paul Sonne reached out to the office of the Vice President regarding whether Hunter’s involvement with Zlochevsky at Burisma would undermine the Vice President’s message on Ukraine” and displayed an email by Mr. Sonne on this matter.
Then came the major bombshell when the law center wrote “Office of the Vice President connected the Wall Street Journal to Amos Hochstein. Amos Hochstein is, according to Politico, ‘the most influential Joe Biden adviser that most people don’t know about.’ According to Axios, he is ‘one of President Biden’s closest confidants.’ According to Chuck Grassley [R-IO] and Ron Johnson [R-WI] committees’ staff report, then-U.S. Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs Amos Hochstein raised concerns with VP Biden and Hunter that Hunter’s position on Burisma’s board enabled Russian disinformation efforts and risked undermining U.S. policy in Ukraine.”
