Biden denies bank records showing his family got rich off CCP money.
Joe Biden has denied the authenticity of bank records obtained by Congress that indicate an associate of Hunter Biden sent roughly $1 million to members of the Biden family after being wired cash from individuals with direct ties to the Communist Chinese Party.
Last week House Republicans on the Oversight Committee announced that bank documents revealed how the president’s son, Hunter Biden, Joe’s brother Jim Biden, and Hunter’s sister-in-law, Hallie Biden all received money from Hunter’s associate Robinson “Rob” Walker after Walker’s account was wired millions of dollars from a CCP connected entity.
“It’s not true,” Biden told reporters outside of the White House.
Watch the clip:
Speaking to Fox News host Sean Hannity, Rep. James Comer said Walker’s account, around 2 months after Joe Biden left the office of Vice President, received a 3 million dollar wire from two individuals “directly associated with the Chinese Communist Party,” Valiant News reported.
“The very next day after that wire was received, the Walker account started transfering money into three different Biden family member accounts,” said Rep. Comer.
“After the Robinson Walker, LLC account received $3 million from State Energy HK Limited, Biden family members and their companies began receiving incremental payments over a period of approximately three months,” a memo released by the Oversight Committee states. “The recipients of the money included Hallie Biden, companies associated with Hunter Biden and James Biden, and an unknown bank account identified as ‘Biden.’”
🚨 2 weeks ago, I subpoenaed bank records for 3 Hunter Biden business associates.
One of the associates, Rob Walker, was wired millions from CCP connected individuals. He then sent money to 3 Biden family members.
What were they doing in return for the cash?

Despite Biden’s denials, Hunter’s spokesperson confirmed that the payments are real, but stressed that the accounts “belonged to Hunter, his uncle and Hallie — nobody else.”
“Hunter Biden, a private citizen with every right to pursue his own business endeavors, joined several business partners in seeking a joint venture with a privately-owned, legitimate energy company in China,” the spokesperson said.
“After a disgusting attack lamenting 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,” said White House spokesman Ian Sams said.
“Instead of bizarrely 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 lowering costs and strengthening health care,” Sams added.

“As part of that joint venture, Hunter received his portion of good faith seed funds which he shared with his uncle, James Biden, and Hallie Biden, with whom he was involved with at the time, and sharing expenses.”
