Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) ripped President Joe Biden after the emergence of a photo of the president and a Hunter Biden associate from a 2015 trip to Ukraine.
The image includes Amos Hochstein as further evidence of Biden's connection to the bribery scandal.

"This damning picture of then Vice President Joe Biden on Air Force Two en route to Ukraine talking with Amos Hochstein is just further evidence that Biden and senior officials in the Biden Administration not only knew of Hunter Biden's corrupt foreign business dealings, but also that Joe Biden was intimately involved while Vice President," Stefanik said.
"All evidence points directly to Joe Biden being deeply compromised. House Republicans will leave no stone unturned in our investigations into Biden’s involvement in his family's influence peddling scheme," she added.

"Amos Hochstein, President Biden’s current special presidential coordinator, was apparently in communication with Hunter and Hunter’s associates at Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings when the first son was serving on the firm’s board," Fox News reported.
"A photo taken by White House photographer David Lienemann shows Biden being briefed by Hochstein aboard Air Force Two on his way to meet Ukrainian leaders in Kyiv on Dec. 6, 2015, when he threatened to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid if they did not fire their top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin," it continued.
The photo comes as the president continues to claim he had no involvement in his son's business dealings during Joe Biden's years as vice president.
The image serves as part of a larger investigation into Biden family bribery allegations under discussion by the House Oversight Committee that claims deals may have included over $20 million.
In addition to Ukraine, accusations have been noted regarding China and other nations that have led to additional concerns about Biden's international relationships.
The picture now requires more of an explanation as Biden seeks to continue his denials related to the investigation.
