Burisma cut Hunter Biden’s salary two months after Joe Biden left office

May 26, 2021

Hunter Biden was paid $1,000,000 a year for sitting on the Board of Directors of Burisma despite having no experience in the energy field for the obvious reason of his father’s position as Vice President. Of course both Hunter and his father deny this was the reason, and also claim there was no wrong-doing–such as influence peddling–by either of them.

So it is either the greatest of ironies or the largest of coincidences that just two months after Joe Biden left office Burisma cut Hunter Biden’s salary in more than half. Here is more:

The Ukrainian energy company that was paying President Biden’s son Hunter $1 million a year cut his monthly compensation in half two months after his father ceased to be vice president.

From May 2014, Burisma Holdings Ltd. was paying Hunter $83,333 a month to sit on its board, invoices on his abandoned laptop show.

But in an email on March 19, 2017, Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi asked Hunter to sign a new director’s agreement and informed him “the only thing that was amended is the compensation rate.”

“We are very much interested in working closely together, and the remuneration is still the highest in the company and higher than the standard director’s monthly fees. I am sure you will find it both fair and reasonable.”

After the email, the amount listed on Hunter’s monthly Burisma invoices was reduced to $41,500, effective from May 2017. 

Still a hefty salary and higher than any other Board member–probably as a reward for influence peddled–but oddly just happens to coincide with the fact that Hunter no longer had anybody influential in the White House he could talk to for Burisma. But move along, nothing to see here…

    Corruption like this in our federal government is so ubiquitous it is really difficult to view and wonder at it. It is like looking up in to my clear desert skies and wondering about the limits of the universe. That is how deep corruption flows in our gummint. I saw it when I was on active duty over 20 years ago. This fungus has grown by leaps and bounds since then. It simply boggles the mind.
