The Biden family received more than $1 million from an associate linked to Hunter Biden after that associate’s account was wired money from a Chinese state energy company, according to Republicans on the House Oversight Committee.
The associate, John Robinson “Rob” Walker, worked with Hunter Biden, now-whistleblower Tony Bobulinski, and President Joe Biden’s brother James Biden incorporated a joint venture in Delaware in 2017 with the founder of CEFC China Energy, Ye Jianming, according to corporate documents obtained by The Epoch Times in late 2020.
House Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) on Thursday stated he obtained new records after subpoenaing Bank of America, which found that “at least three family members” received payments from accounts tied to Walker. His panel also released a letter (pdf) via Twitter saying that the account was named “Robinson Walker, LLC,” while it noted that Hallie Biden, the widow of President Joe Biden’s son Beau, received some of the payments.
While Republicans claimed that the wire was evidence that a Chinese state company was linked to the Biden family, Thursday’s letter only indicated that the funds were transferred from Walker’s account to Biden family accounts in March 2017. State Energy HK Limited, a separate Chinese company, wired $3 million to Robinson Walker, LLC on March 1, or several weeks after Joe Biden left office as vice president.
“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 said. “The recipients of the money included Hallie Biden, companies associated with Hunter Biden and James Biden.”
Meanwhile, around the same time, more than $1 million was wired from Robinson Walker, LLC to European Energy and Infrastructure Group in Abu Dhabi, a company associated with James Gilliar, another of Hunter Biden’s business associates.
The letter said that an unknown bank account with the name “Biden” also received payments totaling about $70,000. Oversight Republicans said they have not determined who that Biden is.
Meanwhile, as Hallie Biden was receiving wire transfers worth about $35,000 between March and May of that year, she was reportedly romantically involved with Hunter Biden, according to House Oversight Republicans.
Between March 2017 and May 2017, an account labeled “Owasco P.C.,” associated with Hunter Biden, received some $500,000, Oversight Republicans said. An account linked to James Biden, named “JBBSR INC” received about $360,000 in the same time frame from Walker’s account.
The Epoch Times contacted a spokesman for James Biden and a lawyer for Hunter Biden comment. An email account associated with Hallie Biden has not returned a request for comment.
Neither Hunter Biden’s lawyers nor other members of the Biden family have issued public comments about Comer’s latest revelation.
Comer said in a statement that Oversight Republicans have not yet determined why the payments were given to the Biden family or what services were rendered.
“The Oversight Committee is concerned about the national security implications resulting from President Biden’s family receiving millions of dollars from foreign nationals,” Comer said in a statement. “We will continue to follow the money trail and facts to determine if President Biden is compromised by his family’s business schemes and if there is a national security threat.”
A spokesperson for the White House on Thursday told several news outlets that the Oversight Committee’s investigation into the Biden clan is a waste of time. Republicans, the White House spokesperson said, are engaging in a politically motivated investigation.
“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,” the spokesperson said, adding that Comer “has now decided to go after Beau’s widow” with new allegations.
The top Oversight Democrat, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), accused Comer and Republicans of targeting Biden instead of former President Donald Trump. He claimed this week that Comer dropped a demand for accounting records of Trump’s accounting firm Mazars USA.
“Your apparent decision to permit former President Trump’s attorneys to speak on behalf of the Committee and allow Mazars to stop producing evidence of President Trump’s own misconduct is, by itself, an astonishing delegation of the legislative power of the Chair to a twice-impeached former President whose Executive Branch actions are still actively under Committee investigation,” Raskin said in a letter on Sunday to Comer.
Comer’s committee said that a number of questions need to be answered about the wire transfers, including a response to why those transfers to the Biden family members were made via incremental payments to different bank accounts, what services Biden’s family provided to receive those payments, the identity of the “Biden” account holder, and why Hallie Biden received payments from Robinson Walker, LLC, when she was working as a school counselor.
