Adorned with the Queen Anne-era of grand architecture and tightly guarded by Secret Service agents, the 9,000-square foot vice president’s mansion on the U.S. Naval Observatory grounds is rarely accessible to everyday Americans. But Hunter Biden – as the son of a sitting vice president – was able to score the sort of VIP meeting inside the mansion that most lobbyists could only dream of.
There in 2015, the future first son delivered face time between then-Vice President Joe Biden, his fellow business partner and Burisma board member Devon Archer and an international banker they were courting for business in Kazakhstan.
1. Hunter Biden and Archer wanted Holtzman, the top official at Kazakhstan’s largest bank to deliver an energy deal for Burisma in Kazakhstan.
2. Holtzman wanted Kazakh Prime Minister Karim Massimov to become the next United Nations Secretary General. And he needed Joe Biden’s backing.
