Devon Archer, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, has testified to investigators that Joe Biden attended a dinner with him and several others, including a top executive from Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company where Hunter served on the board.
Archer's testimony contradicts the Biden camp's previous statements that Joe Biden was not aware of Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine. In 2020, the New York Post reported that Hunter had introduced his father to Vadym Pozharskyi, a Burisma executive, at a dinner in Washington, D.C. The Biden camp denied that the meeting had taken place, but Archer's testimony appears to confirm it.
Archer told investigators that the dinner took place in 2015, at a restaurant in Georgetown. He said that Joe Biden arrived late, shook everyone's hands, and joined the conversation. Archer said that the dinner was “mostly social,” but that they did discuss Hunter's work at Burisma.
Archer's testimony is significant because it provides new evidence about Joe Biden's knowledge of Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine. It also raises questions about whether Joe Biden used his position as vice president to benefit his son's business interests.
The Biden camp has not yet commented on Archer's testimony. However, they have previously denied any wrongdoing.
The investigation into Hunter Biden's business dealings in Ukraine is ongoing. It is unclear what impact Archer's testimony will have on the investigation. However, it is certainly a significant development.

Hunter Biden's ex-business partner confirmed during his recent closed-door interview with the House Oversight Committee that then-Vice President Joe Biden was at the infamous spring 2015 dinner with son Hunter's foreign business associates, despite the Biden campaign repeatedly saying Biden was never there.
Devon Archer told investigators that the elder Biden “had dinner” with him and several others, including “Vadym P. from Burisma.” When Biden arrived, Archer said Biden “shook everybody's hand” and joined their conversation.
In 2020, the New York Post reported an explosive story about Hunter Biden introducing his then-vice president father to a top executive at Ukrainian energy firm Burisma, where Hunter had served on its board and reportedly collected more than $50,000 per month.
