Republicans are going after bank records linked to Hunter Biden, and Democrats are fuming over the move.
Moreover, House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) announced Monday night that they have learned some disturbing details about money being funneled to the Biden family from China after successfully obtaining the financial records they sought.
The Hill reported Monday evening:
House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) has issued a subpoena for the bank records belonging to associates of Hunter Biden.
The news was first disclosed in a letter that Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), the ranking member of the Oversight committee, sent to Comer expressing concerns about the panel’s investigation into presidential ethics.
In that letter, Raskin referenced “the sweeping subpoena you recently issued relating to business associates of President Biden’s son,” which he said Democrats were given with “mere hours of notice.” Raskin said this was a break from “longstanding committee practice” of giving the committee’s minority a minimum of 48 hours notice for subpoenas.
In his letter, Raskin accused Comer of blocking Democrats from receiving documents they subpoenaed in their investigation of former President Donald Trump, “while simultaneously issuing an invasive and overbroad subpoena to private individuals as part of an investigation targeting the business dealings of family members of President Biden who have never held public office.”
Raskin claimed that Comer is running “a political fishing expedition to turn up any flotsam and jetsam that might be reeled in relating to members of President Biden’s family, in the hopes of attacking the President and boosting former President Trump’s reelection efforts.”
“Over the last two years, first as Ranking Member and now as Chair, you have sent over 70 letters to virtually anyone who you believe can provide information on any aspect of Hunter Biden’s life despite a complete lack of evidence that any of these individuals or their financial transactions personally benefitted a government official or influenced, in any manner whatsoever, U.S. government policy,” Raskin complained in his letter.
Raskin, who fought for years to get his hands on Trump’s tax records, complained in his letter that Republicans are asking for Hunter Biden’s financial records.
In an interview Monday night with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Comer explained that the bank has complied with the subpoena, turning over financial records for three former Hunter Biden business associates. Comer then dropped news of a bombshell discovery.
Comer said they have confirmed that about two months after Joe Biden left the office of vice president, the account for former Hunter Biden associated Rob Walker received a $3 million wire from two individuals from the Chinese communist party.
The very next day, the Walker account started transferring money into three different Biden family members’ account, including a new Biden family member that’s never before been identified as being involved in the scheme.
“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? I will find out,” Comer declared in a Twitter post, while sharing a video of the interview.
