A former business partner to Hunter Biden who orchestrated the transfer of overseas funds to members of President Joe Biden’s family testified to FBI agents that he played golf with the president up to a dozen times, often at the request of Hunter while the two traded on the family name in their work with foreign corporations.
Rob Walker, who partnered with Hunter to form various limited liability companies used to funnel payments, described how Hunter pleaded with him to play golf with his father, then Vice President. Asked if he’d met Biden, Walker described the strange encounters arranged by his son.
“…I mean I would get called and I’d.., I’d play golf with him probably eight to twelve times and… I played with him at um.., ah.., Bully Rock in Havre de Grace with ah.., Beau and Hunter one time,” said Walker according to a partially redacted transcript of his FBI testimony. “…[P]layed with ‘em in D.C. probably ten times or so…”
He added that Hunter would urge him to play hooky from work in order to attend the outings.
“…and it was really um.., more of ah.., hey, my dad’s gonna go play golf…, you’re…, you’ve gotta come with me.., and I’m like at work,” Walker said.
Around the links, Hunter and Walker would rope Biden into meetings with officials from CEFC China Energy, a corporation with close ties to the nation’s communist government. Before CEFC delivered $3 million in payments to Walker which were then disbursed via LLCs to Biden family members, Biden himself attended meetings with the company’s officials, according to Walker.
“Did um.., did the V.P. ever show up at any CEFC meeting or anything like that..,even once he was out of office?” Wilson asked.
“Yes,” Walker answered.
“It was out‐of‐office,” Walker said. “D. C. at the Four Seasons,” he added.
“He literally sat down,” Walker insisted.
“I think Hunter said um.., I may be tryin’ to start a company, ah, or tried to do something with these guys and could you.., and think he was like ‘if I’m around’….and he’d show up,” Walker stated.
Asked if Biden’s appearance would bolster Hunter’s attempt at “makin’ a deal work out,” Walker replied, “Yeah.”
Before the defenestration of former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), House Republicans led by Rep. James Comer (R-KY) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) were examining a breathtaking number of documents tying President Biden to the business activities of his son which have resulted in Hunter pleading guilty to concealing income from his overseas business deals. Other documents reveal how Biden wrote a letter of recommendation for the daughter of an executive at a Chinese venture firm controlled by the state bank. According to Devon Archer, another former business partner with Hunter, Biden participated in dozens of business meetings with overseas companies like Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company that employed Hunter, and sought Biden’s help in firing a local prosecutor investigating the company for corruption.
Polls have shown a large majority of Americans believe President Biden participated to some degree in his son’s overseas business ventures.
