Take a Look at Rogan’s Read on Hunter’s Business Partner’s Testimony – Watch
In a bombshell revelation, Hunter Biden’s former business partner Devon Archer has testified that Joe Biden was “the brand” that was used to send “signals” to Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company where Hunter served on the board.
Archer’s testimony, which was given to the House Oversight Committee in a closed-door hearing, is the latest in a series of revelations that have raised serious questions about the Biden family’s business dealings in Ukraine.
According to Archer, Joe Biden was put on speakerphone during business meetings with Burisma executives about 20 times. Archer said that Biden was not involved in the discussions, but that his presence was used to send “signals” to Burisma that the Biden family was “watching.”
“You’ve had other conversations with Hunter Biden,” James Mandolfo, the general counsel and chief of investigations for the Committee on Oversight and Accountability, noted, adding, “You were his business partner for a long time.”
“Did he talk about how bringing his dad either to Ukraine or using his dad as Vice President would add value in the eyes of Burisma officials?” Mandolfo asked.
“Yes,” Archer answered.
“And how would that come up?” Mandolfo asked.
“I just think it’s almost — it’s pretty obvious if you’re, you know, you’re the son of a Vice President,” Archer answered. “He would — we would not talk specifically about — you know, he would not be so overt. And I think that’s, you know, I think that’s another obvious point, that he would not say, okay, we’re going to — we’re — you know, I’m overtly — we’re going to use my dad for this. But I think he would — you know, given the brand, I think he would look to, you know, to get the leverage from it”
Mandolfo cited a note from Hunter Biden to Archer dated April 22, 2014.
“Essentially, Hunter Biden copies and pastes what appears to be a quote from his father’s speech while Vice President Biden was in the Ukraine,” Mandolfo noted. “You then respond, ‘Wow. We need to make sure this ragtag temporary government in the Ukraine understands the value of Burisma to its very existence.’ Hunter Biden then said, ‘You should send to Vadym’ — and who is Vadym again?”
Mandolfo continued, “It makes it look like we are adding value.’’
“Would you agree with me this isn’t legal advice that’s adding value here that Hunter Biden is giving, the value add that Hunter Biden brings to Burisma is Vice President Biden?” Mandolfo suggested.
“The value that Hunter Biden brought to it was having — you know, there was — the theoretical was corporate governance, but obviously, given the brand, that was a large part of the value. I don’t think it was the sole value, but I do think that was a key component of the value,” Archer said.
“You keep saying ‘the brand,’ but by ‘brand’ you mean the Biden family, correct?” Mandolfo inquired.
“Correct,” Archer answered.
“When you say ‘Biden family’ … You aren’t talking about Dr. Jill or anybody else. You’re talking about Joe Biden. Is that fair to say?” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) interjected.
“Yeah, that’s fair to say,” Archer replied, adding, “Obviously, that brought the most value to the brand.”
Mandolfo asked Archer what was the basis for knowing that Hunter Biden’s family was “adding value.”
“My basis for knowing that?” Archer answered. “Well, I think there was — there are particular, you know, objectives that Burisma was trying to accomplish. And a lot of it’s about opening doors, you know, globally in D.C. And I think that, you know, that was the, you know — and then obviously having those doors opened, you know, sent the right signals, you know, for Burisma to, you know, carry on its business and be successful.”
Archer later added, “My only thought is that I think Burisma would have gone out of business if it didn’t have the brand attached to it. That’s my, like, only honest opinion.”
