Earlier this month, the New York Post published a story about a “smoking gun email” Hunter received from Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Ukrainian gas company Burisma's board.
Trump previously said that Joe Biden "got a kickback" and said Bill Barr must appoint someone to investigate Hunter Biden's "laptop from hell."

"We've gotta get the attorney general to act, he's gotta act and he's gotta act fast. He's gotta appoint somebody. This is major corruption and this has to be known about before the election," he confirmed.
"Bill Barr is a very nice man and a very fair man," Trump said. "Just remember it, because I get angry too."

Trump and his supporters have alleged that Biden pushed for the firing of Ukraine's top prosecutor to protect his son and Burisma from any investigation.
Biden did push for the prosecutor's firing – but that's because he was reflecting the official position of not only the Obama administration, but many Western countries and because the prosecutor was seen as “soft on corruption.”Several photos of Hunter were also unearthed
The Biden campaign said they looked over Biden's schedules from the time "and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”
"Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as 'not legitimate' and political by a GOP colleague have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing. Trump administration officials have attested to these facts under oath,” spokesperson Andrew Bates said.
The Post reported that an email from May 2014 shows Pozharskyi asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the Ukrainian company’s behalf.
The emails were reportedly discovered in a laptop Hunter dropped off at a local repair shop in Delaware in April 2019.
Biden's son left the damaged Apple laptop at the shop in April 2019 – but MacIsaac claimed Hunter never returned or paid the $85 bill.
