"If the New York Post story is true we know without any shadow of doubt that this was a boldfaced lie."

Mr. Bondi stressed that Mr. Biden had previously stated, "I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings."

In the April 17, 2015, email allegedly sent to the younger Biden, Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma Holdings, thanked him for the chance to meet his father.

"Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It's realty [sic] an honor and pleasure," the email reads.

The New York Post obtained the email from former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump's personal lawyer.
