The House Republicans continue to amass evidence that the Biden family is compromised by suspect payments from foreign nationals. But President Biden is sticking to his story that stories showing that his family is corrupt are untrue.
On Friday, the president denied questions from reporters involving recently unearthed bank records indicating that close family members received over a million dollars in incremental payments from a company associated with a Hunter Biden business partner.
“It’s not true,” Biden said as he departed for another Delaware vacation from the White House lawn.
Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) subpoenaed financial records from Bank of America, one of twelve banks used by the Biden family, that show close family members profited for unexplained services after a foreign company tied to the Chinese Communist Party wired over $3 million to Robinson Walker, LLC.
A committee memo says, “The next day, Robinson Walker, LLC wired $1,065,000 to European Energy and Infrastructure Group in Abu Dhabi, a company associated with James Gilliar,” who is a Hunter Biden business partner.
“After the Robinson Walker, LLC account received $3 million from State Energy HK Limited, Biden family members and their companies began receiving incremental payments over a period of approximately three months,” the memo continues. “The recipients of the money included Hallie Biden, companies associated with Hunter Biden and James Biden, and an unknown bank account identified as ‘Biden.’”
The White House in response to the committee’s findings did not deny the bank payments, but blasted the committee’s investigation into the Biden family.
“After a disgusting attack lamenting that the President’s deceased son Beau was never prosecuted while he was alive, Congressman Comer has now decided to go after Beau’s widow,” said White House spokesman Ian Sams.
“Instead of bizarrely attacking the President’s family, perhaps House Republicans should focus on working with the President to deliver results for American families on important priorities like lowering costs and strengthening health care,” Sams added.
Hunter Biden’s legal team confirm the payments happened, but nonetheless accused Republicans of pushing a “baseless right-wing conspiracy theory.”
“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,” the spokesperson said. “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.”
The “good faith seed funds” is a euphemism for the million dollars in payments from a foreign company for unexplained services.
The Hong Kong company that wired over $3 million bound for Biden family associates in 2017 appears to have been run by a member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) at the time of the transfer, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation determined.
In March 2017, the month after President Joe Biden’s tenure as vice president ended, State Energy HK Limited wired $3 million to Robinson Walker, LLC, run by “Biden family associate” John Robinson Walker, a House Oversight Committee memorandum revealed on Thursday. At the time of the $3 million transfer, the chairman and executive director of State Energy HK Limited appears to have been Lei Donghui, who joined the CCP in July 2002, according to a Chinese government website.
Lei, who left State Energy HK Limited in February 2018, now apparently serves as the “general manager” of Sanshui Development Company in Foshan, according to a DCNF translation of the company’s website.

Last week, Chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Rep. James Comer (R-KY), revealed that his committee possesses documents showing that the Biden family has been receiving money from the Chinese Communist Party.
“We are finally having people cooperate with us,” Comer said to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. “I think we all know the Biden administration is stonewalling, Janet Yellen is stonewalling, not turning over the bank violations. But fortunately, since we’ve last spoken, we actually have bank records in hand.”
“We have individuals who are working with our committee,” Comer continued. “In the last two weeks we’ve met with either these individuals personally or with their attorneys and that that would be four individuals who had ties in with the Biden family on their various schemes around the world.”
“So now we have in-hand documents that show just exactly how the Biden family was getting money from the Chinese Communist Party,” he added.
“And, and I’ll tell you, it’s as bad as we thought, Maria,” he added.
