Joe Biden and former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, December 2015
Laptop Supplemental (Part Four)
If the FBI typed “Pyatt” in the search field on the Hunter Biden laptop they possess, as I did on the copy I have access to, they would see only one entry.
But it’s a doozy. And it certainly offers an inside glimpse as to who, in addition to Geoffrey Pyatt, is helping Dirty Joe Biden cover up his criminal activities in Ukraine.
Hint for the dummies at the FBI: It’s all in the distro list.
But first, let’s understand what we’re looking at.

In this email, dated December 8, 2015, Hunter’s former friend and former business partner Eric Schwerin dutifully alerts the RosemontSeneca/Burisma PR team to a substantial New York Times story out that morning on Joe Biden’s “36 Hours in Kyiv” trip. The membership of the group is worth a Substack in and of itself, which I will publish in due time, but for now, I’ll focus on the Ambassador’s role in this email .
This is the trip, as I’ve explained in a series of previous Substacks, during which Joe threatened the Ukrainian government that he’d cancel a billion dollars in aid if they didn’t fire a prosecutor he defined as corrupt. Schwerin’s email is merely a distribution of the NYT story to key players tasked with protecting Joe and Hunter’s under-the-table payouts from the company and oligarch that the prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, promised to investigate.
The story, written by James Risen, who had only a tangential association with Joe Biden’s White House team, is not journalism. It’s PR camouflage — light on the truth but effective to NYT readers who revel in mass formation psychosis. Risen deftly uses extensive quotes from Pyatt, a veteran foreign service officer, just the kind of guy NYT readers drool over, to echo Joe’s allegations of corruption against the Ukrainians investigating Burisma oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky, who was actually quite the Biden benefactor.
In addition to being the ruthless and corrupt founder of Burisma Holdings, Ukraine’s largest privately held natural gas company, Zlochevsky had in 2014 connected Hunter and Devon Archer with his number one operator Vadym Pozharskyi at an oligarch retreat at Lake Como, Italy. Also present was Yelena Baturina, the Putin-connected Moscow businesswoman who had raised red flags at the Treasury Department by wiring $3.5 million to another Hunter Biden/Devon Archer company in February 2014.
And then in 2015, as his brother Beau lay dying in Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Hunter had returned the grift by introducing Pozharskyi to his dad, the Big Guy. Pozharskyi is, of course, copied on this email.
So Mirror, Mirror, on the wall who is the most corrupt of all …
Here are my screenshots of the rest of Schwerin’s email as it appears on Hunter’s laptop, so a total of four screenshots in all. The article is a worthwhile read for an example of the corporate media papering over Joe’s Burisma cash grab because nowhere in there does Risen mention Joe’s nondescript trip to Cyprus, which is where Zlochevsky’s $23 million wound up. Pyatt defines that money as “illicit assets that belonged to the Ukrainian people,” but neither he nor anyone in corporate media ever raises the point that Joe and Hunter and Devon Archer were intimately connected to the oligarch who benefited from that transfer and that Joe visited that money laundering haven just weeks after promising millions in aid for Ukrainian energy development of non traditional natural gas reserves, of which Burisma’s holdings were vast.
Quid pro quo, Joe?

But Pyatt would have known about Burisma and Cyprus and Joe’s trip there. Heck, he might have offered to have some of his embassy personal help Joe out by staffing his Cyprus trip. Maybe he did. Maybe if there’s a congressional investigation into Burisma, Pyatt can answer that and a lot of other questions. He would have a lot of answears, I’m sure.
Because he would have, should have known about Ukrainian oligarchs, energy security, and the Obama-Biden goals for countering Putin. And that meant he was working intimately with Joe. And what’s more questionable is the fact that Tony Blinken, a tried and true Joe Biden operative, was then a newly appointed Under Secretary at the State Department, would also have been directing Pyatt and coordinating with him on Ukraine.
Then there’s Blinken’s boss, Secretary of State John Kerry. Remember him and his stepson Chris Heinz, who had dropped his association with Hunter Biden and Devon Archer the moment he learned they were on the Burisma board?
Pyatt appears in the laptop only because he’s so prominently quoted in Risen’s article. Ambassador Pyatt has never sent or received an email catalogued on Hunter’s laptop, but it’s clear his quotes shilling for Dirty Joe in the NYT were critical to every member of the RosemontSeneca/Burisma PR team.
And when it come to what he really did for Joe, there’s a there there.
Weirdest and most troubling of all, at least to me, is that the story does not carry a byline by Times’ White House Correspondent Peter Baker, who was then traveling back from Ukraine with Biden on Air Force Two and working on another article about Joe’s trip that had nothing to do with Hunter or Burisma and Joe’s conflict of interest.
But as I pointed out in my previous Substack, Ambassador Pyatt had met in-person and off-the-record with Baker the previous evening. So if he had the inside line from the Ambassador, why wasn’t he the guy who wrote the article raising the conflict of interest question?
That’s a question I’ll attempt to answer in my next Substack, along with another look at Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt’s legacy.
So much Democratic and media corruption, so little time.
