(RightWing.org) – A Republican congressman has leveled a new, potentially devastating allegation at the Biden family. Representative James Comer (R-KY), the chair of the powerful House Oversight Committee, says the president and his relatives have been using a huge network of shell companies to launder payments from business deals. Millions of dollars could have flowed through the companies — escaping both the taxman and any form of scrutiny.
In March, the Oversight Committee, which is looking into the Biden family’s finances, revealed that the president’s family had received at least $10 million from Romania and China while Joe Biden was vice president. It wasn’t clear what these payments were for, but the timing of them was often suspicious.
For example, in September 2015 Biden met Romanian president Klaus Iohannis at the White House. Shortly after that, payments from a Cypriot company owned by a Romanian businessman who was being investigated by his own government started to flow to a Biden family company, Robinson Walker LLC. The Oversight Committee suspects Biden might have been selling influence, and using the extensive and complicated network of companies around his family to collect his fees. The president’s son, Hunter Biden, had started working for the same Romanian businessman months before he met the vice president.
After Biden left the White House in 2017 China took over from Romania as the source of the family’s payments. Between August 2017 and the following October, companies linked to his son and brother received more than $4 million from a company jointly owned by Hunter and a communist Chinese businessman.
Now Comer is trying to work out exactly where all this money came from, why it was paid and what happened to it. His committee is gearing up to start serving depositions on Biden businesses. Comer recently told journalists that the maze of shell companies around the president makes “absolutely no sense,” and he wants to know exactly what’s going on.
