Hunter Biden has admitted to the Biden family’s previously denied multi-million dollar business with Chinese entities, according to recent reports. Bank records obtained by the Committee on Oversight and Accountability Majority Staff revealed that a Biden family associate used his company to transfer over $1.3 million to members of the family and their companies from 2015 to 2017.
According to a spokesperson, “Hunter Biden, a private citizen with every right to pursue his own business endeavors, joined several business partners in seeking a joint venture with a privately-owned, legitimate energy company in China. As part of that joint venture, Hunter received his portion of good faith seed funds which he shared with his uncle, James Biden, and Hallie Biden, with whom he was involved with at the time, and sharing expenses.”
“Rep. Comer takes something old and tries to make it new by wrapping it in a wild and baseless right-wing conspiracy … The accounts so dramatically listed by Rep. Comer belonged to Hunter, his uncle and Hallie – nobody else.”
On March 16, 2023, the Committee on Oversight and Accountability Majority Staff released a memorandum addressed to the Committee on Oversight and Accountability Members. The memo contained new evidence resulting from the Committee’s investigation into the Biden Family’s Influence Peddling and Business Schemes.
It’s important to note that Hunter has denied these “allegations” over and over in the past, and the spokesperson’s statement today contradicts his prior story.
The subpoena issued on February 27, 2023, sought specific and critical information related to three Biden family business associates. The Committee’s intention is to identify deficiencies in the current legal framework regarding ethics laws and disclosure of financial interests related to the immediate family members of Vice Presidents and Presidents.
Bank records obtained by the Committee revealed this week that John Robinson Walker, a Biden family associate, used his company to transfer over $1.3 million to Biden family members and companies from 2015 to 2017.
The records also reveal that less than two months after Vice President Joe Biden left public office, a Chinese company wired $3 million to Robinson Walker, LLC, after which the company wired $1,065,000 to a company in Abu Dhabi associated with James Gilliar, a business partner of Hunter Biden.
The committee’s statement on Twitter:
Bank records we’ve obtained reveal Rob Walker, a Biden family associate, used his company to transfer money from a Chinese energy company to Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden, and an unknown “Biden.”
Specifically, on March 1, 2017 – less than two months after VP Joe Biden left public office – Robinson Walker, LLC received a $3 million wire from State Energy HK Limited, a Chinese company. Robinson Walker, LLC then wired $1,065,000 to a company associated with James Gilliar.
James Gilliar was a business partner of Hunter Biden & was involved in foreign transactions with the Biden family. Afterwards, Biden family members & their companies began receiving incremental payments over a period of approximately three months.
The total money transferred adds up to $1,065,692.
The Biden family members who received money from this account included:
1. James Biden
2. Hunter Biden
3. Hallie Biden, a new person of interest in the Biden Business Scheme
A fourth bank account identified as an unknown “Biden” also received money. We are continuing to investigate the identity of this account holder.From the bank records, it appears that the Biden family received approximately one-third of the money obtained from the China wire.
Ultimately, the American people deserve transparency into the extent of the Biden family’s influence peddling.
We intend to deliver legislation that will preclude family members from capitalizing on their relatives’ public office as we suspect the Bidens to have done.
Accountability is coming.
Specifically, on March 1, 2017 – less than two months after VP Joe Biden left public office – Robinson Walker, LLC received a $3 million wire from State Energy HK Limited, a Chinese company.
