In the summer of 2019, Hunter Biden received two wire transfers from Chinese business partners — wire transfers that listed Joe Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware home as the beneficiary address, the House Oversight Committee revealed Tuesday evening.
After subpoenaing bank records, the committee found records of two wires linked to BHR Partners, a “Beijing-backed private equity firm controlled by Bank of China Limited,” according to Fox News Digital. Hunter Biden sat on the firm’s board.
The first wire transfer in July 2019 was for $10,000 from Ms. Wang Xin, the name of a woman listed on BHR Partners’ website. The second in August 2019 was for $250,000 from Ms. Tan Ling and Li Xiang Sheng, the CEO of BHR Partners who also goes by the name Jonathan Li.
While the beneficiary for the wires is “Robert Hunter Biden,” the listed address is Joe Biden’s primary residence in Delaware. A beneficiary address is “either the address listed to the recipient account, or listed by the individual sending the wire,” explained Fox News Digital. “It is unclear, based on the wire records, who listed the address.”
According to his memoir and the failed plea agreement his attorneys drafted with his dad’s DOJ, Hunter Biden was living in California with his second wife during the summer of 2019, when the wire transfers were sent. Hunter was photographed at the Wilmington residence on July 30, 2017, however, on the day he was reported to have sent an extortive WhatsApp message to a different Chinese associate, saying “I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father” and threatening to use “the man sitting next to me” to “forever hold a grudge” if a “commitment made” was not “fulfilled.”
During his testimony to the Oversight Committee, former Hunter Biden business associate Devon Archer alleged that Joe Biden had coffee with Jonathan Li in Beijing and that Hunter put Joe on speakerphone with Li for at least one call.
Joe Biden also wrote a letter of recommendation for Li’s daughter’s Georgetown college application, according to Archer — and Fox News Digital reported in 2022 that Biden had written a recommendation letter for Li’s son’s Brown University application.
Besides further incriminating Joe Biden in the family influence-peddling scheme, the wire transfers continue to disprove Biden’s brazen lie during a 2020 presidential debate that “My son has not made money [from] China.”
The news adds to a laundry list of bank records uncovered by the Oversight Committee showing that the Biden family and their business partners have received funds amounting to millions of dollars from foreign nationals in Russia, Ukraine, Romania, Kazakhstan, and China.
Biden’s claim that he “never discussed with my son or my brother or anyone else anything having to do with their business, period” has also fallen apart, with testimony from multiple different associates placing Joe on phone calls or in meetings with Hunter’s foreign contacts.
“Bank records don’t lie but President Joe Biden does,” said Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer.
Meanwhile, the corporate media have gone into overdrive covering everything other than the explosive development in the Biden family corruption scandal — or “covering” the Biden story by airing excuses from Hunter’s lawyer. In particular, legacy media are piling on Trump after a New York judge effectively booted him from doing business in the state.
The obsession with Trump’s latest legal troubles today is consistent with how developments in the unraveling Biden bribery scandal have been swept under the rug all year. Just for a refresher: On June 8, the FBI released to Congress records showing a “credible” FBI confidential human source had alleged Joe Biden took $5 million from a foreign national in Ukraine. The same day, Trump was indicted in a probe over his handling of classified documents.
On July 26, Hunter Biden’s sweetheart plea deal was derailed by a federal judge. The next day, more charges were added in the case against Trump. On July 31, Devon Archer testified to Congress that Hunter connected his father to foreign business associates nearly two dozen times. The next day, Trump was indicted again. On Aug. 14, Congress released an FBI supervisory special agent’s transcript corroborating testimony “that FBI headquarters tipped off Secret Service headquarters and the Biden transition team” about IRS investigators’ planned interview of Hunter Biden. That same day, Trump was indicted another time.
Today, the pattern continues. Yesterday, the Oversight Committee released bank records showing Joe Biden’s home was listed as the beneficiary address on wire transfers from Hunter’s Chinese associates. The same day, a New York judge ruled against Trump and it’s all the media can talk about.
