Recent revelations have cast a new light on the business dealings of Hunter Biden and his father, Joe Biden.
The House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer has released bank records indicating monetary transactions from Hunter Biden's business to Joe Biden's account.
The released records, subpoenaed by the committee, show that Hunter Biden's business entity, Owasco PC, made direct monthly payments totaling $1,380 to Joe Biden's account. These transactions occurred on specific dates - September 17, October 15, and November 15, 2018.
According to Chairman Comer, Owasco PC, which is Hunter Biden's business, received payments from China and other sources he described as "shady." This raises questions about the nature and origin of the funds transferred to Joe Biden's account.
Further complicating the situation, a whistleblower has alleged that the Department of Justice (DOJ) actively tried to limit inquiries into Joe Biden's involvement in these matters.
Comer asserts that these payments are part of a larger pattern that implicates Joe Biden in his family's influence-peddling schemes. He claims that as Vice President, Joe Biden met and interacted with Hunter's foreign business partners, further entangling him in these dealings.
It's alleged that these payments to Joe Biden were funded by what Chairman Comer calls the Biden family's influence-peddling schemes. This claim is bolstered by the fact that Hunter Biden requested office keys to be made for Joe Biden for shared office space with a Chinese energy company.
In August 2018, Hunter Biden received a significant wire transfer of $5 million from a Chinese company. He transferred $400,000 from that payment into his Owasco PC account.
From there, funds were moved to James Biden's account, who then issued a $40,000 check to Joe Biden, labeled as a "loan repayment." These transactions coincide with when Owasco PC made payments to Joe Biden's account.
The Department of Justice is investigating Hunter Biden and Owasco PC for potential tax evasion and other crimes. This investigation comes amid these recent findings and allegations.
Chairman Comer, in his remarks, emphasized the corporate nature of the account from which these payments to Joe Biden were made, underlining their connection to Hunter Biden's foreign business activities.
"This wasn’t a payment from Hunter Biden’s personal account but an account for his corporation that received payments from China and other shady corners of the world," Comer said.
These revelations have intensified scrutiny over the Biden family's business engagements, particularly with foreign entities. Comer has been vocal in questioning the Justice Department's role in limiting the scope of investigations into these matters.
Comer, highlighting concerns about the DOJ's impartiality in this investigation, said:
"Based on whistleblower testimony, we know the Justice Department made a concerted effort to prevent investigators from asking questions about Joe Biden. I wonder why? Payments from Hunter’s business entity to Joe Biden are now part of a pattern revealing Joe Biden knew about, participated in, and benefited from his family’s influence-peddling schemes."
The situation raises questions about the extent of Joe Biden's awareness and involvement in his son's business dealings, especially those with foreign entities.
