Hunter Biden allegedly accepted $250,000 from a Chinese source via President Joe Biden’s personal address, according to new information released by the House Oversight Committee. The information from the committee’s chairman, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) may further the impeachment inquiry into the president’s finances and family’s business dealings.
Comer wrote on social media that he subpoenaed and received information regarding two 2019 bank wires indicating the payment from Chinese nationals. The incidents allegedly occurred while Biden was running for president.
According to Comer, the president’s home address is “listed as the beneficiary address for both money wires from China.”

Comer’s statement alleges that Chinese national Jonathan Li was one of the money’s senders. If true, this places an individual who Biden spoke to while he was vice president, including meeting with him in Beijing. The president later “wrote a college letter of recommendation for his children,” according to Comer.
The Kentucky Republican wrote that Biden’s “abuse of public office for his family’s financial gain threatens our national security.” He asked what the Biden family did with the money sourced from China. “Americans demand and deserve accountability for President Biden and the First Family’s corruption,” he wrote.
He further said that his own committee and the House Oversight Committee, headed by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) would “continue to follow the evidence and money to provide transparency and accountability.”
Comer cited the fact that Biden previously denied that his family received any money from China. He wrote that this had been proven a “lie” earlier in 2023 following indications of previous payments to Hunter Biden from China.
Meanwhile, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO) said that his committee would vote to release the information it found regarding Hunter Biden.
Under taxpayer secrecy laws, such a vote is necessary to release the information.
Smith did not announce the exact information, but Politico reported that it regarded recent IRS whistleblower testimony.
