A second Democrat has been linked to Hunter Biden’s Ukraine ‘lobbying’ efforts.
Lisa Booth (D-NY) has been an ardent supporter of both Ukraine and Zelensky from the outset.
According to recent reports, Booth had conversations with Hunter Biden, as far back as 2016, requesting a ‘brief’ on Ukraine.
In 2016, when Booth questioned Hunter Biden about Ukraine, he was a member of Burisma’s board. …
Here’s what we currently know:
Roughly two weeks after the exchanges with Blunt Rochester, then-Vice President Biden pressed Kyiv officials to fire top prosecutor Viktor Shokin.

Fox News reported the content of the email thread between Booth and Biden:
Hunter replied less than an hour later, writing, “Let me know what more I can do- lets do a fundraiser in the second quarter down here in DC.”
Ten days later, on the evening of Feb 15, 2016, Blunt Rochester thanked Hunter again for the donation and asked if he could brief her “on the Ukraine.”
“Thank you again for your generous contribution to my campaign,” she wrote.
“Your support means so much to me. Brian suggested I reached out to you to see if you could brief me on the Ukraine. Is there someone who manages your calendar or should I give you a few times for a phone call?”

The New York Post adds:
Hunter Biden donated $3,000 to Blunt Rochester’s principal campaign committee between February and April 2016, according to Federal Election Commission records.
“Let me know what more I can do- lets do a fundraiser in the second quarter down here in DC. Best, H,” he told her just days after his first contribution of $1,000.
