A House panel is digging into some seriously shady stuff involving President Biden and his family’s sketchy business deals abroad, and boy, is it juicy! Bank records obtained by the House Oversight and Accountability Committee reveal that ol’ Joe’s son, Hunter Biden, was funneling moolah from business deals in China, Ukraine, and other places into his daddy’s bank account. And get this, folks—President Biden had previously denied receiving any cash from his fam’s foreign affairs!
The checks from Hunter to Joe may have been small potatoes at $1,380 each, but it looks like they contradict President Biden’s claims about not benefiting from his relatives’ lucrative international escapades. Committee Chair James Comer has called foul play, pointing out that these weren’t personal payments from Hunter’s piggy bank, but rather from a corporate account tied to dodgy deals around the globe.

What’s really eyebrow-raising is that these payments were made while Joe Biden had finished up his second term as vice president and hadn’t even thrown his hat into the presidential ring yet. It’s been suggested that the funds originated from transactions with China during Biden’s veep days, and some of the dough apparently got shuffled around to avoid looking like a big ol’ mess of corruption. And get this—there’s even talk of Hunter flexing some dad-related muscle to scare a Chinese associate into coughing up more cash. Yikes.
But that’s not all, folks. The committee’s investigators have also found some pretty hefty checks, totaling a whopping $240,000, from President Biden’s brother, James. It seems like these funds might’ve been greased by business deals that benefited from good ol’ Joe’s famous last name. Sounds fishy, doesn’t it?
Unsurprisingly, the Republicans are hankering for the Biden boys to spill the beans in closed-door depositions. Despite Hunter’s public plea to testify out in the open, the committee ain’t having it. They’ve called his bluff and set a date for his deposition, videotaping the whole shebang and planning to drop the transcript for all to see. Fair’s fair, right?
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any wilder, the committee has uncovered a treasure trove of 20 shell companies that allegedly funneled a cool $24 million to Biden family members and their buddies from foreign deals between 2015 and 2019. These deals apparently turned Hunter’s law firm into a cash cow, raking in millions from energy companies in bed with the Chinese Communist Party and various other international enterprises.
Folks, this is one spicy scandal that’s only going to heat up as the investigation rolls on. Stay tuned for more twists and turns in the Biden family business bonanza!
