House Republicans on the committees investigating the Biden family’s alleged international shakedown operation can no longer be accused of having “no evidence.” On Dec. 4, they revealed proof that Joe Biden, despite numerous denials, did indeed receive money, through his son, Hunter Biden, that originated in China. It isn’t any more complicated than that, but the junior Biden’s attorney is still lashing out at House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), insisting that the whole investigation is a sham and that GOP lawmakers are twisting the facts.
Joe Biden himself, when challenged on his son’s financial deals with the Chinese, once asked reporters, “where’s the money?” During one of the 2020 presidential debates, he claimed that the only candidate who had taken money from China was Donald Trump. Republicans have the receipts, though – quite literally.
Bank records show that, in 2018, a monthly payment was set up for Joe Biden from a business account. The business was Owasco PC, Hunter Biden’s firm. The documented money trail Republican investigators have already uncovered shows that funds from a Chinese Communist Party-linked energy company flowed through Owasco PC to the Bidens. The payments to Joe Biden were in the amount of $1,380.00 and at least three were made in consecutive months in 2018.
There is already a pattern of money transfers from foreign companies to Hunter Biden – and also payments made between Biden family members – being explained away as loans or loan repayments. Now, Hunter Biden’s lawyer says the monthly transfers to Joe Biden were reimbursements to him for making payments on a pickup truck for his son. Reportedly, there is documentation to support this claim.
Chinese Cash Flowed Through Hunter Biden
Still, the money may have been laundered through Owasco PC and other shell companies from China. As Liberty Nation previously reported, a company co-managed by Hunter Biden, Hudson West III, in 2017 received a $5 million payment from a firm acting on behalf of CEFC, the above-mentioned Chinese energy company. On the very same day this funds transfer was completed, Hudson West III transferred $400,000 to Owasco PC. $150,000 ended up with a company owned by Joe Biden’s younger brother, James, and his wife. Right after that, Sara Biden took $50,000 in cash and deposited it in her and her husband’s personal account. Then she wrote a check for $40,000 to – wait for it – Joe Biden. Apparently, this was also a loan repayment. On another occasion in 2018, James Biden wrote a check to his brother for $200,000. This, too, was described as a loan repayment.
A pattern is emerging, here. Money came in from overseas, then moved through various shell companies and, finally, not insignificant amounts of it ended up with Joe Biden. In every case, the stories have been that family members were repaying the senior Biden for, apparently, dishing money out to them right and left. This doesn’t jibe with a 2019 text message from Hunter Biden to his daughter in which he said, “I Hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family [for] 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike Pop, I won’t make you give me half your salary.”
When all is said and done, the loan repayment excuse doesn’t cut it. If one loans money to someone, one is still financially benefiting when the loan is repaid. After all, if the loan is never paid back, the lender is out of pocket. Whether Joe Biden was merely being reimbursed for money he lent out is not the issue. He still received money that came from questionable financial deals struck by Hunter Biden using his last name as leverage.
It’s becoming rather tedious to look at the Bidens’ shady financial dealings and think, “if this was Trump.” Yet, if it was, and Democrats were still in control of the House of Representatives, impeachment proceedings would once again already be well underway. Going by the rather loose and arbitrary standards the Democrats applied to the 45th president, Republicans already have enough evidence to begin impeachment.
What it comes down to is that – excuses about loan repayments aside – money came from China and ended up in the pockets of Biden family members. This means there is at least a possibility that Hunter Biden, the son of America’s chief executive, has been compromised by China. By extension, so has his father. Everyone deserves a fair hearing – well, everyone except Donald Trump, apparently – but the potential national security threat to the United States is too grave not to turn over every stone. Reportedly, the House will vote on moving to an official impeachment investigation before mid-December.
