The House Oversight and Accountability Committee says the Biden family and its business associates created more than 20 companies and received more than $10 million from foreign nationals while Joe Biden served as vice president, and that some of these payments could indicate attempts by the Biden family to “peddle influence.”
Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., released a memo ahead of his press conference Wednesday that includes new information from his investigation into the Biden family’s “influence peddling and business schemes.” The memo said the Biden family appeared to take steps to “conceal the source and total amount received from the foreign companies.”
The committee has subpoenaed four different banks as part of its probe and received “thousands of records in response.” Those subpoenas were “tailored to specific individuals and companies that engaged in business activities with Biden family members and their business associates,” the memo said.
It said Biden family members and business associates “created a web of over 20 companies — most were limited liability companies formed during Joe Biden’s vice presidency.”
Thinsg seems to getting even weirder:
On top of all this Hunter complained that he had to give his father half of his salary!
Hunter Biden’s access to lucrative financial opportunities also came with expectations — including kicking back as much as 50% of his earnings to his dad, text messages on his old laptop show.
“I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” Hunter Biden groused to daughter Naomi in January 2019. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike pop, I won’t make you give me half your salary.” Pop is Joe Biden.
The laptop — infamously abandoned at a Delaware repair shop in April 2019 — does not contain any direct evidence of such money transfers, but does show that Hunter was routinely on the hook for his father’s household expenses while Joe Biden was vice president.
The evidence that was found on Hunter’s laptop now seems to be taking a different shape as the committee said it discovered that Hunter Biden, through his associate Rob Walker, received more than $1 million from a foreign company reportedly controlled by Gabriel Popoviciu, the subject of a criminal probe and prosecution for corruption in Romania. Then-Vice President Biden met with Romanian leaders in 2014 and 2015 “regarding corruption in the country.”
Summary: House Republicans laid out evidence of a vast network of Biden family dealings which reek of corruption – including;
- The Biden family received, and tried to hide, over $10 million in payments from foreign nationals
- A previously undisclosed $1 million in Romanian-linked payments
Ties to Romanian ‘influence peddling’
- A ‘web’ of 20 LLCs created while Joe Biden was Vice President with a ‘complicated corporate structure’
- ‘At least 15’ of the LLCs were formed after Biden became VP in 2009 – several of which were owned or co-owned by Hunter
- These LLCs accepted payments ranging from $5,000 to $3 million
The committee wants to know what legitimate business the Biden family was in
