The investigation into Hunter Biden's foreign business deals and his father's alleged involvement continues to take all sorts of fun, new twists and turns.
According to Fox News, the latest bombshell in the growing scandal ties in key members of the Obama administration.
Devon Archer, Hunter Biden's former longtime business partner and fellow Burisma board member, revealed in an interview with the House Oversight Committee that he met with "then-Secretary of State John Kerry just weeks before the Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Burisma was fired in 2016."
It just so happens that Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating corruption issues with the Ukrainian energy company, was fired less than four weeks after Archer's meeting with Kerry, which took place at the State Department.
An email obtained by via use of the Freedom of Information Act confirmed Archer's appointment with Kerry.
"Devon Archer coming to see S today at 3:00pm - need someone to meet/greet him at C Street," the email read.
"'Devon Archer coming to see S today at 3:00pm - need someone to meet/greet him at C Street,' reads the redacted email on March 2, 2016, which was previously released via the Freedom of Information Act."https://t.co/aNxefG6h5J

Fox News noted:
Fox News Digital can confirm that "S" refers to Kerry, based on multiple other email communications. However, it is unclear what Archer and Kerry discussed at the meeting or whether Burisma came up in conversation.
The meeting came at a curious time. Fox noted that Hunter Biden and Archer had already sat on the Burisma board for some two years, and the meeting came in the wake of then-Vice President Joe Biden's visit to Ukraine where he allegedly threatened to withhold $1 billion in aide if Shokin wasn't terminated.
For his part, Shokin has long-claimed that he was fired from his position at the time because of the Biden family's influence on both the country and within Burisma.
"I have said repeatedly in my previous interviews that [then-Ukrainian President Petro] Poroshenko fired me at the insistence of the then-Vice President Biden because I was investigating Burisma," he said during a Fox News interview Saturday.
He added, "[Poroshenko] understood and so did Vice President Biden that had I continued to oversee the Burisma investigation, we would have found the facts about the corrupt activities that they were engaging in. That included both Hunter Biden and Devon Archer and others."
Not surprisingly, the White House has denied the claims repeatedly.
Only time will tell how much deeper the investigation into the debacle will get, but it looks as though House Republicans are just getting started.
