(FreedomBeacon.com)- Records show that in 2017, President Biden’s family received over $1 million from accounts associated with Hunter Biden’s business friend Rob Walker and their Chinese business operations.
Hunter Biden, the president’s brother, and Hallie Biden, the widow of the president’s son Beau, were paid by Hunter’s business associate Rob Walker and their joint venture with the Chinese energy firm CEFC, according to bank records obtained by Republicans on the House Oversight Committee on Thursday. On Thursday, a representative for Hunter Biden’s legal team acknowledged the payments but noted that the accounts “belonged to Hunter, his uncle (Jim Biden) and Hallie – nobody else.”
While on the White House grounds on Friday, a reporter asked President Biden about the payments, and he said it was a lie.
“That’s not true,” the president remarked when questioned about the Republican legislators’ conclusions.
Bank of America’s financial documents, subpoenaed by Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Kentucky, indicate otherwise.
On March 1, 2017, less than two months after former Vice President Joe Biden left office, documents showed that State Energy HK Limited, a distinct Chinese business, sent $3 million to Robinson Walker, LLC.
The following day, Robinson Walker, LLC sent $1,065,000 to European Energy and Infrastructure Group in Abu Dhabi, a business affiliated with James Gilliar.
Hunter Biden’s international business dealings included collaborating with Gilliar.
The email explains that the Biden family and their businesses started receiving payments after Rob Walker’s account was credited $3 million from State Energy HK Limited. The payments were spread out over a three-month period.
Hallie Biden, businesses linked to Hunter Biden and James Biden, and a mysterious bank account simply labeled “Biden” all received payments.
To what extent Joe Biden’s family leveraged his position as vice president to strike agreements with foreign entities is being investigated by Republican senators.
In a statement, the White House did not dispute the conclusions but strongly criticized the committee’s probe of the Bidens.
Hunter Biden’s lawyers accused Republicans of peddling right-wing conspiracies even as they admitted that the payments had transpired.
Meanwhile, Trump is the focus of criminal accusations, indictments, and arrests by the DOJ and Soros-backed prosecutors nationwide.
