With that said, let’s begin:
In 1988, Hunter enrolled at Georgetown University.
In 1991, Rosemont Realty was founded in Santa Fe, NM.
At some point between 1993–2001, Daniel Burrell was hired as an intern at the Clinton White House.
At some point, Christopher Heinz studied at Yale University, where he was roommates with Devon Archer.
In July 1993, Hunter married Kathleen.
Between July to December 1993, Hunter applied for both Syracuse University for creative writing and Georgetown Law for law school, and was accepted into both — he ultimately chose Georgetown Law due to his child on the way.
In 1994, Hunter transferred from Georgetown Law to Yale Law to continue his law degree.
In 1996, Hunter completed his law degree at Yale Law. Hunter then returned to Wilmington and was hired as deputy campaign manager for Senator Joe Biden’s reelection campaign. During this time, Hunter was hired as a lawyer at MBNA America, with a salary of over $100,000.00.

They would later recruit Charles Provini as the President for a time.

“Everyone agreed that the Bidens and Lotito would form a corporation to buy 54 percent of Paradigm for $21.3 million in cash.

As Hunter recalled, his father discussed Burisma with him just once: ‘Dad said, ‘I hope you know what you are doing,’ and I said, ‘I do.’” — The New Yorker

“Inside the vice president’s office, there was discussion about whether Hunter’s position on the board would be perceived as a conflict of interest, according to several former aides who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.
One former adviser was concerned enough to mention it to the vice president, according to an adviser, but the conversation was brief, and other aides said they didn’t want — or see a need — to raise an issue.” — The Washington Post
“They show how Hunter Biden and his American business partners were part of a broad effort by Burisma to bring in well-connected Democrats during a period when the company was facing investigations backed not just by domestic Ukrainian forces but by officials in the Obama administration.

There is an EU wide asset freeze in place against 22 individuals linked to the regime. This is a significant achievement and a crucial step to prevent asset flight.

“As the Prime Minister and the President heard me often say, I never tell another man or another nation or another woman what’s in their interest. But I can tell you, you cannot name me a single democracy in the world where the cancer of corruption is prevalent. You cannot name me one. They are thoroughly inconsistent. And it’s not enough to set up a new anti-corruption bureau and establish a special prosecutor fighting corruption. The Office of the General Prosecutor desperately needs reform. The judiciary should be overhauled. The energy sector needs to be competitive, ruled by market principles — not sweetheart deals. It’s not enough to push through laws to increase transparency with regard to official sources of income. Senior elected officials have to remove all conflicts between their business interest and their government responsibilities. Every other democracy in the world — that system pertains.” — Vice President Joe Biden
At some stage after this, Vice President Biden warned President Poroshenko that the United States would withhold a $1 billion loan guarantee unless Shokin was fired from his position as Prosecutor General.
“I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting your money’. Well, son of a bitch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.” — Joe Biden
“But Biden is not just glad-handing; he’s testing the waters for what is possible — and pushing leaders to do what he sees as both in the U.S. and their own nations’ interests. He described, for example, a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko — whom he calls ‘Petro’ — in which he urged Poroshenko to fire a corrupt prosecutor general or see the withdrawal of a promised $1 billion loan to Ukraine. ‘Petro, you’re not getting your billion dollars,’ Biden recalled telling him. ‘It’s OK, you can keep the [prosecutor] general. Just understand — we’re not paying if you do.’ Poroshenko fired the official.” — The Atlantic
