Hunter Biden received $250k from China in bank transfers
Joe Biden’s Delaware home was listed as the beneficiary address on two wire transfers Hunter Biden received from China, a top Republican has said. James Comer, the chair of the House Oversight and Accountability committee, says he obtained bank records through a subpoena that showed Hunter received payments from Beijing in 2019, when Joe was vice president.
The records state that Joe’s Wilmington, Delaware, home at ‘1209 Barley Mill Rd’ was listed as the beneficiary address. Hunter is believed to have lived there for two years following his divorce from first wife Kathleen Buhle in 2017. He was also said to be exploring global business opportunities with firms in China and Ukraine.
The first wire on July 26, 2019, for $100,000 came from a Ms. Wang Xin, who is listed on the website for Beijing equity firm BHR Partners. The second was allegedly from Jonathan Li, the Chinese national Hunter supposedly threatened over WhatsApp while Joe was in the room. ‘I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father’, Hunter said to Li in the messages revealed by an IRS whistleblower.
The GOP released the latest evidence in the investigation just two days before Republicans hold their first impeachment inquiry hearing into Biden on Thursday. The party has revealed evidence showing $24 million flowed from foreign entities to the Biden family between 2014 and 2019.
Comer, who has been investigating the Biden family and their overseas deals, subpoenaed financial records from a specific bank account connected to Hunter. BHR Partners is backed by Bank of China Limited, and was a joint venture between Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca and investment firm Bohai Capital.
‘Bank records don’t lie but President Joe Biden does,’ Comer said on Tuesday night. ‘In 2020, Joe Biden told Americans that his family never received money from China. We’ve already proved that to be a lie earlier this year, and now we know that two wires originating from Beijing listed Joe Biden’s Wilmington home as the beneficiary address when he was running for president of the United States. When Joe Biden was vice president, he spoke on the phone and had coffee with Jonathan Li in Beijing, and later wrote a college letter of recommendation for his children.’
‘Joe Biden’s abuse of public office for his family’s financial gain threatens our national security. What did the Bidens do with this money from Beijing? Americans demand and deserve accountability for President Biden and the First Family’s corruption. The Oversight Committee, along with the Judiciary and Ways and Means Committees, will continue to follow the evidence and money to provide transparency and accountability,’ he continued.
The White House hit back at the latest claims, saying it was a stunt to try and distract from the looming government shutdown. Ian Sams, Biden’s spokesman for oversight and investigations, said: ‘Comer and (Republican Rep) Jim Jordan should explain to the military servicemembers living in Kentucky and Ohio who will continue to do their jobs even without their paychecks why they are wasting their time attacking President Biden with debunked conspiracies instead of trying to avoid the calamitous consequences of the House Republican government shutdown.
