President Biden’s daughter-in-law, Hallie, was named as the mysterious “new” Biden family member alleged to have benefited from the family’s foreign business ventures.
House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer teased earlier this week that subpoenaed bank records showed that a member of the Biden family who had not previously been on the committee’s radar had been unmasked in its probe of the family’s alleged lucrative influence-peddling scheme.
Comer first told The New York Post on Thursday that Beau Biden’s widow, Hallie Biden, received $35,000 over two transfers in 2017 from Biden family associate Rob Walker. Walker and Hunter Biden were partners in a venture with executives from CEFC China Energy at the time the alleged transfers took place.
Bank records obtained by the Committee reportedly showed that Walker was wired $3 million from “two individuals closely aligned with the Chinese Communist Party,” which he then disbursed to three Biden family members, including Hallie Biden. The transfers reportedly occurred shortly after Joe Biden’s term as vice president ended.
BIDEN FAMILY PROFITS
Following Comer’s disclosure to the Post, the House Oversight Committee released a memo confirming Hallie Biden as the latest member of President Biden’s family caught up in the widening net of its probe.
“From 2015 through 2017, Biden family members and their companies received over $1.3 million in payments from Rob Walker-related accounts,” the memo stated. The recipients of this largesse were listed as Hallie Biden, the president’s brother, James Biden, and the president’s son, Hunter Biden. Money was also transferred to “[a] bank account identified as an unknown ‘Biden.’” The identity of the fourth Biden is the subject of a continued investigation, according to the document.
“These records prove the Biden family used at least three family members — Hallie Biden, James Biden, and Hunter Biden — and various companies to receive the lucrative payments from Robinson Walker, LLC, including Owasco PC, JBBSR INC, and RSTP II, LLC,” the memo continued.
The Committee questioned why Hallie Biden, a school counselor, “received money from Robinson Walker, LLC…”.
INTRAFAMILY LOVE TRIANGLE
Hallie Biden was married to the president’s elder son, Beau Biden, until his death in 2015 from brain cancer, and is the mother of two of President Biden’s grandchildren. Hallie Biden reportedly dated Hunter Biden, Beau’s brother, from roughly 2016 to 2019. It was during this time, the Post noted, the money transfers took place.
White House spokesman Ian Sams slammed the new revelations as an attack on Biden’s family.
“First, @JamesComer lamented that Beau Biden — the President’s deceased son — wasn’t prosecuted before he died. Now, he’s going after Beau’s widow,” Sams wrote in a tweet.
“Perhaps House Republicans should join the President to focus on actually helping American families, instead of trying to smear his,” he added.
PAYING BILLS WITH FOREIGN MONEY
Comer told Just the News on Wednesday that Congressional investigators had uncovered at least 12 bank accounts used by the Biden family to receive money from foreign sources. Newly provided financial documents included the first evidence that some of those funds were used to pay President Biden’s bills and provide him with other direct benefits.
“The Committee is concerned about the national security implications of a President’s or Vice President’s immediate family members receiving millions of dollars from foreign nationals or companies without any oversight,” the House Oversight Committee stated.
