Hunter Biden is not a politician.
House G.O.P. Hunts for Evidence That Biden Family Deals Were Improper
Hunter Biden’s legal team on Thursday issued an angry statement arguing that the House investigation was overly intrusive into the finances of a private citizen and stating that the younger Pres. Biden’s international business transactions were legal. It said that Mr. Comer had inaccurately characterized the deals.
“Hunter Biden, a private citizen with every right to pursue his own business endeavors, joined several business partners in seeking a joint venture with a privately owned, legitimate energy company in China,” the statement said. “As part of that joint venture, Hunter received his portion of good faith seed funds which he shared with his uncle, James Biden, and Hallie Biden, with whom he was involved with at the time and sharing expenses. The accounts so dramatically listed by Representative Comer belonged to Hunter, his uncle and Hallie — nobody else.”
A spokeswoman for Democrats on the Oversight Committee said, in particular, that information Mr. Comer released about Hallie Biden was incorrect. Mr. Walker had transferred money to her the month before any funds were received from the Chinese company, the spokeswoman said. Mr. Comer’s memorandum said that Ms. Biden received the money about three weeks after the Chinese firm had wired funds to Mr. Walker.
“Chairman Comer’s memo proved once again that, after four years of investigations by Senate and House Republicans into Hunter Biden, they have found no connection to the president of the United States or indeed any government official at all,” said Representative Jamie Raskin of Maryland, the top Democrat on the oversight panel.
