In an alarming development, House Republicans say there was obvious “collusion” between Hunter Biden’s business allies and then-Vice President Joe Biden’s office.
Records show that on Dec. 4, 2015, a Biden family business associate named Eric Schwerin offered “talking points” to the vice president’s office about Burisma.
On the same day, Hunter called his father to discuss the growing corruption investigation into the Ukrainian firm. (Trending: Joe Biden Created A Disaster He Can’t Solve)

House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said, “There is evidence of collusion in the efforts to spin media stories about Burisma’s corruption while Vice President Biden was publicly pushing an anti-corruption agenda in Ukraine.”
“Suspiciously, Hunter Biden’s associate had a media statement on Burisma approved by Vice President Biden himself the same day Hunter Biden ‘called D.C.’ for help with the government pressure facing Burisma,” he added.
“Joe Biden never built an ‘absolute wall’ between his family’s business dealings and his official government work—his office doors were wide open to Hunter Biden’s associates,” Comer said.
Hunter’s businees partner Devon Archer, who also sat on the board of Burisma, testified at the House Oversight Committee and confirmed that Hunter put his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, on speakerphone while meeting with business partners at least 20 times. “Archer described how Joe Biden was put on the phone to sell ‘the brand,'” Archer explained in his testimony.

Archer testified that Hunter was required to get help from then-Vice President Joe Biden “regarding the Ukrainina prosecutor Viktor Shokin.” Left-wing “fact-check” articles, including one from CNN, have claimed that Shokin was not investigating Burisma or considered a threat to the company.
“He was a threat,” Archer explained. “He ended up seizing assets of [Burisma owner] Nikolai [Zlochevsky] — a house, some cars, a couple properties. And Nikolai actually never went back to Ukraine after Shokin seized all of his assets.”
Numerous people have corroborated Archer’s testimony, including Shokin himself as well as an FBI informant. The credible informant said Burisma CEO Zlochevsky paid off the Bidens with $10,000,000 for the firing of Shokin. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Vetoes Bill For U.S. Military)
Shokin won a court order on Feb. 2, 2016 and seized Zlochevsky’s property. Shokin was fired at the command of Joe Biden roughly two months later on March 29.
Comer has asked the National Archives and Records Administration to provide:
• The “complete and unredacted versions of all documents from records on Hunter Biden, James Biden, and their foreign business dealings.”
• “Communications to or from the Executive Office of the President (including but not limited to the Office of the Vice President) to, from, copying or regarding Eric Schwerin, Devon Archer, Vuk Jeremic, John Robinson ‘Rob’ Walker, or Jeffrey Cooper.”
• “Communications to or from then-Vice President Biden’s aides Bedingfield, Michael Carpenter, Kathy Chung, Amos Hochstein, Colin Kahl, and Alexander Mackler to, from, copying or regarding Hunter Biden or James Biden.”
• “Executive calendars created for then-Vice President Joe Biden dating from January 20, 2009, to January 20, 2017.”
