Hunter Biden received $260K check from China addressed to his father

 September 27, 2023

Hunter Biden received a $260,000 wire from China in 2019, with his father's address listed on the check, according to House Republicans.

The new evidence, shared by Republican James Comer (Ky.), is just the latest to chip away at Joe Biden's tenuous claim that he had nothing to do with his son's business dealings.

Republicans subpoenaed Hunter Biden's bank records, finding that he received two wires in 2019 at his father's Delaware home.

China sent money to Biden's house

The checks came from BHR Partners, a joint venture between Hunter's firm Rosemont Seneca and Bohai Capital, a Beijng-backed investment firm.

The first check, in the amount of $10,000, came from Wang Xin, and the second was $250,000 from Jonathan Li, a recurring character in the Hunter Biden saga and the CEO of BHR.

House Republicans previously released bank records showing wire transfers to Hunter Biden and members of his family, but none have traced so direct a link with his father.

"Bank records don't lie but President Joe Biden does," Comer said. '

"In 2020, Joe Biden told Americans that his family never received money from China. We've already proved that to be a lie earlier this year, and now we know that two wires originating from Beijing listed Joe Biden's Wilmington home as the beneficiary address when he was running for president of the United States."

House Republicans have opened an impeachment inquiry into Biden, prompting a furious response from Democrats and their backers in the media.

Biden's defenders have vehemently insisted there is no direct link between Joe Biden and his son's business, despite a mounting body of evidence.

Biden's defense crumbles

Joe Biden famously wrote college letters of recommendation for Li's children after being introduced to Li by Hunter during a trip to Beijing in 2013.

Hunter's lawyer Abbe Lowell claims there is an innocuous explanation for the wires.

"This was a documented loan (not a distribution or pay-out) that was wired from a private individual to his new bank account which listed the address on his driver’s license, his parents’ address, because it was his only permanent address at the time,” Lowell said in a statement provided to CNN.

The White House was similarly dismissive, once again accusing Republicans of pursuing a political witch hunt.
