House investigators released bank records that shed more damming light on the financial activities involving the Biden family and their associates. These records reveal the collection of at least 20 millions of dollars from oligarchs in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine while Biden was serving as vice president.
The obtained bank records were shared this morning by the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, corroborating testimonies from two IRS whistleblowers and Biden associate Devon Archer. They further support the claim that substantial sums flowed to Hunter Biden around the same time his father, then vice president, met with these oligarchs.
The Oversight Committee has identified over $20 million in payments to Hunter Biden and his business associates, which were distributed among 10 Biden family members, including President Biden's grandchildren. President Biden has vehemently denied any knowledge or involvement in his son's business dealings.
Chairman Comer of the House Oversight Committee, a Kentucky Republican, has expressed his concerns regarding these findings. He remarked, "It appears no real services were provided other than access to the Biden network, including Joe Biden himself. It's clear Joe Biden knew about his son's business dealings and allowed himself to be 'the brand' sold to enrich the Biden family while he was vice president of the United States."
A $3.5 million payment was made from Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina to a shell company operated by Hunter Biden and Archer. Intriguingly, around the same time as this substantial payment, Hunter Biden arranged for his father, then vice president, to have dinner with Ms. Baturina and other foreign nationals at a restaurant in Washington, D.C. Ms. Baturina was conveniently omitted from the Biden administration's public sanctions list following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
"Then-Vice President Joe Biden dined with oligarchs from around the world who had sent money to his son," Comer said. "It’s clear Joe Biden knew about his son’s business dealings and allowed himself to be 'the brand' sold to enrich the Biden family while he was Vice President of the United States."
The bank records also disclose the monthly payments of $83,333 that Archer and Hunter Biden received for their roles on the board of the Ukraine energy firm Burisma. During Archer's closed-door testimony last week, he revealed that Burisma hired them, in part, to capitalize on the Biden "brand" and to potentially influence a public corruption probe involving Joseph R. Biden.
