Hunter Biden received $250K wires originating in Beijing with beneficiary address listed as Joe Biden’s home
Fox News Digital learned that a congressional committee had informed Fox News Digital that Hunter Biden received wires from Chinese business partners in the summer of 2019. The wires listed the Delaware residence of Joe Biden’s as the beneficiary for the funds.
James Comer of the House Oversight Committee, a Republican from Kentucky, has been looking into the business dealings of President Biden and his alleged involvement.
Comer received two wires from Beijing that were linked to BHR Partners as part of its investigation.
BHR Partners is the result of a joint venture between Hunter Biden’s Rosemont Seneca, and Chinese investment company Bohai Capital. BHR Partners, a Beijing-backed firm of private equity controlled by Bank of China Limited, is owned and operated by Bank of China Limited. Hunter Biden was reportedly on the BHR Partners board of directors.
The first wire transferred to Hunter Biden on July 26, 2019 was $10,000 by an individual called Ms. Wang Xin. On the BHR Partners website, there is a woman named Ms. Wang Xin. The wire is not clear if it came from this Wang Xin.
Tan Ling and Li Xiang Sheng sent Hunter Biden a second wire transfer on August 2, 2019 for $250,000. The committee is attempting to determine Ling’s involvement.
Robert Hunter Biden is the beneficiary of the wires. His address is “1209 Barley Mill Rd” in Wilmington, Delaware. This is President Biden’s main residence.
As part of their investigations, Comer and House Oversight Committee obtained bank records. They allege that the Bidens and their business partners received millions of dollars in payments from oligarchs living in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, during the Obama Administration.
Fox News Digital also learned from the committee that it has records which allegedly reveal that between 2014 and 2019 the Bidens’ family received $24 millions in foreign payments. $15 million went to the Bidens while $9 million was paid to their business associates. This is $4 million more that previously believed.
Fox News Digital was told by committee aides that the beneficiary address is either the account number or the person who sent the wire. The wire records do not indicate who listed the recipient’s address.
Hunter Biden lived at the Biden Family Home in Wilmington in 2017-2018 and 2019. It’s unclear if Hunter Biden was at the house at the time the wire transfers were made in July and August of 2019.
Wires were sent only a few months after Vice President Joe Biden, then in office, announced his 2020 campaign for the presidency. Joe Biden said in August 2019 that he had “never discussed anything with my son, my brother, or anyone else about their business.”
Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s former business partner, testified that Joe Biden had a coffee with BHR CEO Jonathan Li in Beijing as part of an investigation by the House Oversight Committee. Archer testified as well that Biden had written a letter of recommendation for Li’s child to Georgetown. Archer testified that Hunter Biden had his father speak on the speakerphone during at least one phone call with Li, in addition to a coffee meeting.
Fox News Digital reported for the first time in 2022, that Biden had written a letter of recommendation to Brown University for Li’s child.
“Bank records don’t lie, but President Joe Biden does,” Comer told Fox News Digital.
Joe Biden said to Americans in 2020 that his family had never received any money from China. This was a lie that we proved earlier this year. Now, it’s clear that the wires from Beijing listed Joe Biden’s Wilmington residence as the beneficiary when he ran for President of the United States. “When Joe Biden served as vice president, Jonathan Li and he had coffee in Beijing. Later, Biden wrote a letter of recommendation to his children for college.” Comer stated.
“Joe Biden’s abuse of public offices for his family’s financial gain threatens national security.” What did the Bidens get out of this money? Americans deserve and demand accountability for the corruption of President Biden and his family. The Oversight Committee will, in conjunction with the Judiciary and Ways and Means Committees, continue to track the evidence and the money to ensure transparency and accountability.
Hunter Biden received more than $250,000 in the summer 2019 from BHR-connected individuals. In October 2019, George Mesires (then-attorney of Hunter Biden) explained Hunter’s position at the company, saying that he was “only a board member, which he had joined because of his interest in finding ways to bring Chinese money to international markets.”
Mesires stated on October 13, 2019 that the position was unpaid. In October 2017, Hunter agreed to invest $420,000 USD to purchase a 10% stake in BHR. He still has that position. Hunter has never received compensation for his service on BHR’s Board of Directors. He hasn’t received a return on investment. There have been no dividends made to BHR shareholders after Hunter acquired his equity interest.”
Hunter resigned as a director of BHR by the end of the month of October.
Fox News Digital’s comment request was not immediately responded to by the White House or attorneys for Hunter Biden or Mesires. White House claims that President Obama “never did business with his son.”
The House Republicans’ impeachment investigation into President Biden has led to the subpoenaing of financial records.
