    On Wednesday, the New York Post published an article containing some emails exchanges allegedly between Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's son, Hunter, and associates in China and Ukraine. The authenticity of the emails has not been proven yet.

    Hunter Biden’s signature appears to have been found on paperwork from a Wilmington, Delaware, computer repair shop allegedly visited by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, when he dropped off a laptop that contained emails related to his overseas business dealings, Fox News reported on Monday, citing obtained documents dated April 2019.

    The documents, images of which have been published by the outlet and on social media as well, featuring a signature with the initials “RHB” that allegedly is similar to Biden Jr.’s signature. Fox News did not verify if the signature indeed belonged to the former vice president’s son, however if proven to be authentic, it would signify that Hunter Biden had, indeed, met in person with the owner of the repair shop to drop off the computers in question.
    The paperwork also features Hunter Biden’s name in the “bill to” section for a cost of $85.

    The outlet said that it has obtained additional documents, which reveal that the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had contacted the owner of ‘The Mac Shop’, where Hunter allegedly submitted three MacBook Pro laptops for repair.

    The New York Post said on Wednesday that the owner of ‘The Mac Shop’, John Paul Mac Isaac, was the person who reported the content of the laptops to authorities. According to the documents, Isaac was subpoenaed on 9 December 2019 to testify in a US District Court in Delaware.

    ‘Shady’ Business Dealings

    The New York Post on Wednesday published an article containing emails recovered from the hard drive of a damaged laptop computer reportedly left at a Delaware shop by Hunter Biden.

    The documents allegedly shed light on Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukrainian company, Burisma, while Joe Biden, as vice president, worked on Ukraine policy.

    According to the unverified emails, Biden Jr. introduced his father to a top executive at the energy firm.

    In the May 2014 email, Burisma board adviser Vadym Pozharskyi purportedly asked Hunter Biden to "use [his] influence" to support the Ukrainian company politically. In another email, dated April 2015, he reportedly thanks Biden Jr. for arranging a meeting with his father for him.

    If proven to be authentic, the emails would refute Joe Biden’s earlier claim of having “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings”.

    The Biden campaign has denied reports made in the New York Post that the Vice President's son, Hunter Biden, discussed alleged corruption involving a meeting between the current Democratic US presidential contender and Ukrainian gas firm Burisma Holdings.

    “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,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement.
