According to a report released by House Republicans, the Biden family received millions of dollars from companies in Romania and China.
The committee has revealed that Hunter Biden, the brother of Vice President Joe Biden, and James Biden, his sibling, were among the individuals who benefited from a complex influence-peddler operation involving multiple shell companies. Also, Kathleen Buhle, the former wife of Hunter, and Melissa Cohen, his current wife, were identified as beneficiaries of these schemes.
The report noted that the Bidens and their associates used their position to receive payments from companies in Romania, China, and other countries. The committee that produced the report also identified multiple wrongdoings by the family.
The committee was able to obtain bank records that show that the Bidens received over $1 million from a company that was owned by Gabriel Popoviciu, who is a Romanian national accused of corruption.
The money was sent to a company that was owned by Hunter Biden’s associate Rob Walker. It was then used to pay various accounts, including those held by his sister-in-law Hallie Biden and an unidentified individual. Most of the payments made to these accounts occurred from 2015 to 2016.
Hunter Biden's company, Owasco, received a $100,000 payment from a Chinese firm. The source of the money was allegedly kept hidden by a company that was associated with Ye, who is the chairman of the Communist Party of China. Another firm that was linked to Ye, which was known as State Energy HK Limited, gave the money to the Biden family. Some of the funds went to Hallie Biden and another individual known as Biden.

It has been stated that there is something fishy about the way the Biden family has been dealing with the money that they received from companies in other countries. Republicans claim that this is yet another example of how the Democratic Party has a poor understanding of the rules of American democracy. They must hold the Bidens accountable and demand that all members of the party follow the same rules.
