An email obtained by NBC News reveals that Hunter Biden declined to report $400,000 in income he received from Ukrainian gas company Burisma on his 2014 tax return. Biden raked in a cozy salary from the oligarch-owned company of up to $50,000 a month despite lacking experience in the energy industry, with many pointing to his association with then-Vice President Joe Biden as the purpose of his employment.
The email from Eric Schwerin, the president of an investment company founded by the younger and troubled Biden in 2009, succinctly reveals that Hunter did not report a whopping $400,000 from Burisma in his 2014 tax return.
“In 2014 you joined the Burisma board and we still need to amend your 2014 returns to reflect the unreported Burisma income,” says the email dated Jan. 16, 2017. Schwerin goes on to reveal Biden had an income of more than $1.2 million in 2014. NBC News claimed that it was unable to “verify” the email, but a Hunter Biden spokesperson declined to dispute its veracity.
Biden’s suspicious dealings with Burisma were largely ignored by the mainstream media, even after files were published from the troubled drug user’s laptop detailing corrupt foreign business dealings. The Biden campaign admitted this week that the Department of Justice is actively investigating Hunter Biden for tax compliance, with federal sources going on to reveal after the admission that Biden is being probed for potential money laundering and corrupt business deals.
It’s very possible that the US Attorney for Delaware is investigating the younger Biden for trying to hide his suspicious Burisma income in 2014, which would’ve proved an embarrassment at the least for the Biden family if it were revealed while Biden was Vice President. The ongoing investigation stands to linger on as a shadow covering the Biden family, if Joe Biden is inaugurated as President.
