Background of the Hunter Biden article
The article reveals the email conversations of Hunter Biden with Vadym Pozharskyi, who happens to be an adviser to the board of Burisma that writes a thank you message to Hunter for introducing him to his dad. The emails further revealed about the fact that Joe Biden has been aware about the business dealings of his son in Ukraine.
