Hallie Biden has been identified as the mystery Biden family member who received China-linked payments, according to bank information reviewed by House Republican investigators.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, revealed new details obtained through a subpoena of the financial records of longtime Hunter Biden business associate Rob Walker. The GOP investigator revealed that “from 2015 through 2017, Biden family members and their companies received over $1.3 million in payments” from accounts tied to Walker.
Hallie Biden, the widow of Beau Biden with whom Hunter Biden had a romantic relationship, received $35,000 from accounts tied to Walker, including $25,000 that appears to have originated from a Chinese company.
“Over the course of several years, members of the Biden family and their companies received over $1.3 million in payments from accounts related to their associate, Rob Walker,” Comer said on Thursday. “Most of this money came as a result of a wire from a Chinese energy company and went not only to Hunter and James Biden but also to Hallie Biden and an unknown ‘Biden.'”
Comer released a memo stating that two months after Joe Biden left the vice presidency, the Chinese company State Energy HK Limited wired $3 million to Robinson Walker LLC, an account belonging to Walker. The Republican added that “Biden family members and their companies began receiving incremental payments over a period of approximately three months” after Robinson Walker LLC received the Chinese wire and that recipients of the money included Hallie Biden, companies associated with Hunter Biden and James Biden, and an unknown bank account identified only as “Biden.”
Comer says Hallie Biden received $10,000 from Robinson Walker LLC on Feb. 13, 2017, before the Chinese wire payment, and $25,000 on March 20, 2017.
