In a stunning confession that may have repercussions for the president, on Thursday President Joe Biden’s son Hunter admitted the Biden family did have business dealings with Chinese businesses with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The disclosure follows several years of repeated denials.
A spokesperson for Hunter sought to minimize the impact of the disclosure by releasing the following statement:
“Hunter Biden, a private citizen with every right to pursue his own business endeavors, joined several business partners in seeking a joint venture with a privately-owned, legitimate energy company in China.
As part of that joint venture, Hunter received his portion of good faith seed funds which he shared with his uncle, James Biden, and Hallie Biden, with whom he was involved with at the time, and sharing expenses.”
Hunter’s spokesman continued, “Rep. Comer takes something old and tries to make it new by wrapping it in a wild and baseless right-wing conspiracy … The accounts so dramatically listed by Rep. Comer belonged to Hunter, his uncle and Hallie – nobody else.”
Breitbart reported that “Hunter’s statement is a public relations attempt to push back on House Oversight Committee James Comer’s (R-KY) confirmation that the Biden family business received a $3 million wire transfer from a Chinese energy company and subsequent payments after President Joe Biden left the vice presidency in 2017.”
Comer is leading a House investigative subcommittee looking into the alleged misconduct and false statements of the president and illegal business dealings that benefited the Biden family.
Last week, Comer announced “evidence that shows the Biden family business received $179,836.86 while Joe Biden was in the White House,” and approximately $31 million through various business ventures when Joe Biden served as vice president under President Barack Obama.
Comer continued: “The story has changed throughout. When we first broke this story in 2018, they denied that they were even doing business in China. Then they said well, we were doing business in china but, as you pointed out, we didn’t make any money. Then it shifted to joe biden didn’t know about those deals.”
“That’s been disproven,” Comer added. “The fact that they keep shifting the stories, I think, should be a major concern for people in the White House, because it’s pretty clear that the people spinning the news in the White House don’t know the full story, and I think there are going to be several other shoes to drop on this.”
White House spokesman Ian Sams tried to minimize the impact of Comer’s findings by launching a personal attack.
“After a disgusting attack lamenting that the President’s deceased son Beau was never prosecuted while he was alive, Congressman Comer has now decided to go after Beau’s widow.”
Insiders have noted that Comer has received significant material evidence from multiple whistleblowers and financial documents via subpoena that does not bode well for the Biden family.
