President Joe Biden on Friday denied claims that an associate of his son Hunter Biden transferred over $1 million to members of the Biden family received from a Chinese energy firm.
Biden’s response came after the GOP-led House Oversight Committee released information from financial documents showing that Robinson “Rob” Walker dispersed funds to Biden’s family members after State Energy HK Limited wired $3 million to an account in his name.
The committee also called for Walker to testify before the committee.
A reporter from The Epoch Times’ sister media, NTD, confronted Biden with the question on the South Lawn of the White House before the president boarded Marine One to head to his home in Wilmington, Delaware, for the weekend.
“Any reaction to House GOP’s memo about your family’s dealings, sir?” NTD White House correspondent Iris Tao asked.
“My family’s dealings?” Biden asked.
“Yes. Revealing that Hunter Biden’s business associate sent over $1 million to three of your family members. Any reaction to that report?” Tao asked.
“That’s not true,” Biden said.
On Friday, Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) wrote to Walker asking him to appear for a transcribed interview before the panel and requesting confirmation by March 24.
According to Comer’s office, subpoenaed financial records reveal that from 2015 to 2017, Biden family members—Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden, and an unknown ‘Biden’—and their companies collectively received over $1.3 million in payments from accounts related to Walker.
“Most of the payments to the Biden family came after Rob Walker received a $3 million wire from a Chinese energy company,” Comer’s office stated.
According to the House Oversight panel, a recent revelation found that on March 1, 2017, State Energy HK Limited wired $3 million to Walker’s Robinson Walker LLC. After that, payments were gradually sent to Biden family accounts, which included accounts belonging to Hunter, James, and Hallie Biden, from March to May 2017.
An unknown bank account with the identity “Biden” also received payments up to around $70,000, according to the memo. It’s unclear who operated that account.
