Representative James Comer (R-KY) has claimed that six additional members of the Biden family may have benefited from Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings. This is in addition to previously reported allegations that Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine and China may have been influenced by his father Joe Biden’s political position.
“Thousands of pages of financial records related to the Biden family, their companies, and associates’ business schemes were made available to members of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, which confirm the importance of this investigation,” Comer said in a statement Monday afternoon.

“The Biden family enterprise is centered on Joe Biden’s political career and connections, and it has generated an exorbitant amount of money for the Biden family.”
Comer said the panel has “identified six additional members of Joe Biden’s family who may have benefited from the Biden family’s businesses that we are investigating, bringing the total number of those involved or benefiting to nine.”
“The Oversight Committee will continue to pursue additional bank records to follow the Bidens’ tangled web of financial transactions to determine if the Biden family has been targeted by foreign actors and if there is a national security threat,” Comer said, he will “soon provide the public with more information about what we’ve uncovered to date.”
“The American people need transparency and accountability, and the Oversight Committee will deliver much needed answers.”

Fox News reported:
The viewing of the additional financial documents came after the Treasury Department last month notified Comer that it would give the committee “in camera access” to suspicious activity reports (SARs) related to Hunter Biden and the Biden family’s foreign business deals.
The Treasury Department declined to comment on the matter, however, in past letters, the agency has noted this is law enforcement-sensitive data and protected by Bank Secrecy Act.
Last month, Fox News Digital reported that members of the Biden family received more than $1 million in payments from accounts related to Hunter Biden business associate Rob Walker and their Chinese business ventures in 2017, according to financial records subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee.
Those records were obtained after the committee subpoenaed Bank of America, which revealed that “at least three family members” received lucrative payments from a bank account belonging to Walker. That account is labeled as “Robinson Walker, LLC,” and one of the family members is Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s son Beau.
A spokesperson for Hunter Biden’s legal team confirmed the payments last month, but stressed that the accounts “belonged to Hunter, his uncle and Hallie – nobody else.”
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene also made a huge announcement on Monday, claiming to have uncovered evidence of a vast criminal enterprise involving the Biden family.
“I just walked out of the Treasury after reviewing financial reports on the Biden’s and their web of LLC’s and wire transfers from MANY foreign countries that created a vast criminal enterprise bigger than anyone can comprehend,” Greene wrote.
“Whistleblowers can receive protection if they come forward now.”
