Republican investigators in the House of Representatives announced this week that businesses related to President Joe Biden’s son Hunter allegedly received $3 million in payments from a Chinese company while his father was vice president.
The House Oversight Committee released a number of highlights from their interview with Walker. According to the committee, then-Vice President Joe Biden met with the chair of CEFC. The former executive’s location is currently unknown. The meeting took place around the same time that the companies linked to his son received $3 million.
The committee also reported that the younger Biden and his business contacts worked with CEFC for more than a year during Biden’s time in office. The payments to Hunter Biden and his associates reportedly occurred after his term was over.
The testimony also alleged that other members of the Biden family received funds via this transaction “even though they did not work for it.” The Oversight Committee’s statement called it an example of “swampy influence peddling.”
The news came to the House Oversight Committee from Hunter Biden’s former business contact Rob Walker. The funds came from the CEFC China Energy Company, which Walker described as a “thank you” payment.
Walker has also testified regarding payments to Hunter Biden from other nations, including Romania. According to previous evidence, the president’s son allegedly received around $1 million from a Romanian oligarch.
The younger Biden allegedly received the funds from Romania while the former vice president was “leading anti-corruption efforts” in the country. Both Biden and Walker allegedly “began an ill-defined business relationship with Romanian businessman Gabriel Popoviciu.”
Walker testified that both he and Hunter Biden received payments from the businessman, which the committee argued was in exchange for Hunter Biden lobbying the U.S. Ambassador to Romania to talk about a pending legal case against Popoviciu.
The president’s son also came under scrutiny for substantial payments for his artwork. He also allegedly used artwork as a means of paying child support for a daughter born out of wedlock.
New evidence has come out about Hunter Biden's art sales, which was essentially just a money laundering scheme for Democrat donors.
