In the latest development in the ongoing saga of Hunter Biden’s foreign deals, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer has demanded that President Biden correct his “misleading and dishonest” denial that members of his family received more than $1 million from accounts related to Hunter’s business associate and their Chinese business ventures in 2017.
According to bank records obtained by the committee, on March 1, 2017, State Energy HK Limited, a Chinese company, wired $3 million to Robinson Walker, LLC. After the wire, members of the Biden family and their companies began receiving incremental payments over a period of approximately three months.
Comer is calling on the White House to correct the record by March 27 and says bank records show the payments happened and that Hunter Biden’s legal team has confirmed them.
“The Committee is concerned about the national security implications of a President’s or Vice President’s immediate family receiving such lucrative financial deals from foreign nationals and foreign companies without any oversight,” Comer wrote in a letter to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
The president has repeatedly denied having conversations with Hunter Biden about his business ventures and has denied being involved in them.
However, the bank records and statements by Hunter Biden’s legal team contradict his statements.
The investigation into Hunter Biden’s foreign deals is being led by Trump-appointed Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss.
