House chairman questions $1.3 million in payments to Hunter Biden and relatives

The Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee published a memo Thursday alleging that Hunter Biden and at least two relatives were paid $1.3 million from an aide of the president’s son who had ties to a Chinese energy company. Were.

He is alleged to have paid $3 million in March 2017 to an associate, Rob Walker, from a Chinese energy company affiliated with another company with which Biden was doing business. Comer said the recipients of the $1.3 million in payments were Biden, his uncle James Biden and Halley Biden, the widow of Hunter’s brother Beau Biden.

“It is unclear what services were provided to obtain this exorbitant amount of money,” Comer said.

While the $3 million figure and the payment to Hunter Biden had been reported nearly a year earlier, Comer’s memo highlighted what the committee described as “new evidence” obtained from a subpoena of bank records of Walker – Halley Biden in 2017 Two payments totaling $35,000.

“The committee is concerned about the information disclosed in these bank records,” the memo said, including “why Hailey Biden — publicly reported working as a school counselor — received money” from Walker’s firm. .

Hunter Biden admitted in a 2019 interview with The New Yorker that Halley Biden was romantically involved with him during that period.

An attorney for Hunter Biden did not immediately respond to a request for comment and a representative for James Biden declined to comment. Efforts to reach Hailey Biden for comment were unsuccessful.

White House spokesman Ian Sams responded to Comer’s memo on Thursday, saying Comer suggested in an interview with Fox Business this month that the Delaware US attorney probing tax fraud allegations against Hunter Biden should be fired. Biden, who died in 2015, should have been prosecuted.

In a statement, Sams said, “After a despicable attack saying that the president’s deceased son Beau was never prosecuted while he was alive, Congressman Comer has now decided to go after Beau’s widow.” “Instead of vehemently 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 reducing costs and strengthening health care.”

Comer said his committee is “concerned about the national security implications arising from President Biden’s family receiving millions of dollars from foreign nationals” and “will continue to follow the money trail and facts to determine whether the President Biden is compromising his family’s business plans and if national security is at risk.”
