House Republicans said that a text message from Hunter Biden in 2018 provides fresh proof of corruption within the first family. In the message, Hunter Biden claims to have paid his father’s debts for over a decade in the message. Biden told Dodge to charge the amount to Biden’s debit card and his “Wells Fargo credit line,” claiming that his Wells Fargo account had “locked me out again.” Hunter’s claim is confusing because whether he and his father shared an AT&T or a Wells Fargo account is unclear.
Multiple memoranda disclosed by the Committee on Oversight and Accountability demonstrate that while Hunter’s father was vice president, money was sent to accounts associated with Hunter from Chinese, Romanian, Russian, Kazakh, and Ukrainian businesses. The issue of whether or not Biden was aware of his son’s activities and profited from the millions of dollars he made remains unanswered. During an interview with Fox News Digital, Rep. Elise Stefanik, chair of the House Republican Conference, blasted the “corruption” of Joe and Jill Biden.
According to Republican committee members, the president knew at least something about his son’s business operations in 2018, despite his frequent denials of such knowledge. Hunter and his business colleagues allegedly got millions in payments from Russian and Kazakhstani billionaires while his father was vice president, according to bank documents produced by the House Oversight Committee last week. Over $20 million has been sent to the Biden family from abroad.
U.S. Atty. David Weiss was appointed special counsel in the federal investigation of Hunter Biden by Attorney General Merrick Garland. Weiss oversaw the prosecution in the too-leniently condemned Hunter Biden tax and gun charges; thus, Republicans quickly attacked Garland’s choice of Weiss.
House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer described Garland’s announcement as a component of the DOJ’s efforts to perform a Biden family cover-up. Comer said there is ample evidence of President Biden’s role in the Biden family scheme of offering ‘the Biden brand’ for cash to foreign nationals.
