Bravo to Rep. Jim Comer (R-Ky.) for revealing just how much of a family business Biden, Inc. is.
Bank records newly obtained by his House Oversight Committee show that Hunter Biden associate Rob Walker transferred north of $1.3 million in 2017 not only to usual suspects Hunter and presidential little brother Jim but also to daughter-in-law Hallie (son Beau’s widow; Hunter’s brief fling) — plus an unknown simply tagged as “Biden.”
The family that gets paid together stays together, it seems.
Most of that big chunk of change came from a $3 million transfer from an affiliate of Chinese energy outfit CEFC to Walker. CEFC, now defunct, was one of China’s biggest private companies and a main target of Hunter Biden’s operations back in 2017, with the First Son angling for a ultra-high-paid board seat and equity stakes for him and Jim and an unnamed “big guy” widely thought to be Joe.
The new records cast further light on just how inextricably commingled Biden family life is with the larger business operations of the clan.
There’s no possible legit reason Hallie Biden, who works as a school counselor, should have gotten a slice of the CEFC payout.
But this is tradition for the Bidens.
Jim has been selling family influence for decades — getting sweet-deal loans during his brother’s days on the Senate Banking Committee; allegedly telling the executives of a hedge fund he purchased in 2006 that “We’ve got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden.”
And after law school Hunter plainly began “studying” under Jim as a younger partner to eventually take over the “firm.”
Then there’s that mysterious last-name-only “Biden” listed as a recipient.
Might this be Joe himself?
Biden’s said that he knows nothing about Hunter’s business dealings, but the new revelations prove this is BS.
Plus, he’s been fingered as the “big guy” by Hunter’s biz partner turned whistleblower Tony Bobulinski — and as such, due a proposed 10% cut of the CEFC deal.
And then the $64,000 question: What, exactly, was People’s Liberation Army-adjacent CEFC buying?
The smart bet is “influence.”
While these funds did not flow until after Joe’s veep term ended, Hunter and Jim were setting the deal up while he was still in office.
The latest revelations also blow apart Rep. Jamie Raskin’s pathetic deflection — that the House GOP was trying to dig up old receipts for pizza and Starbucks — and show both how vital this probe is to restore trust in government and how instrumental Comer’s been in exposing the Biden mafia.
And he’s just getting started.
