Amid investigations into the Biden family regarding a bribery scheme allegedly involving President Joe Biden, the House Oversight Committee issued subpoenas to the president's son Hunter Biden, the president's brother James Biden and Rob Walker, an associate of the Biden family, to testify before the Committee.
“The House Oversight Committee has followed the money and built a record of evidence revealing how Joe Biden knew, was involved, and benefited from his family’s influence peddling schemes. Now, the House Oversight Committee is going to bring in members of the Biden family and their associates to question them on this record of evidence,” said Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer.
Comer also claimed that the Biden family's bank records "reveal how the Bidens sold Joe Biden around to the world to benefit the Biden family, including Joe Biden himself, to the detriment of U.S. interests." The House Committee has been investigating the Bidens' bank records and hearing witness statements for months. It is trying to unravel a bribery scheme involving the Biden family which allegedly received money in exchange for using Joe Biden's influence for political favors. This primarily occurred when he was vice president.
The Committee has stated that the Biden family created more than 20 shell companies to hide payments from shady businesses abroad. It also claimed the president's family and his business partners received more than $24 million in five years. The money came from countries such as China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania and Kazakhstan.
Comer and the other representatives of the Oversight Committee have tried not only to track the family's business dealings but also to understand what President Biden's role was in the bribery scheme and whether he directly benefited from his family's foreign business dealings.
Devon Archer, a Biden family partner, stated in his testimony that President Biden was “the brand” of the company. He claimed that the Biden family was selling their name by offering power and influence. Archer also assured that the president was involved in telephone meetings with his business partners on more than twenty occasions and that he also met in person with foreign partners.
Last week, the Oversight Committee released two checks, from James and Sara Biden, addressed to President Biden's account, labeled “loan repayments,” which were funded by laundered money from China.
