In an interesting turn of events, Joe Biden is now the target of the House Oversight and Government Accountability Committee’s investigation into his family’s dealings with companies linked with Chinese military intelligence.
“We think there are as many as 11 more deals. Now, we don’t know what those deals are with the Bidens. In the beginning, the White House denied having any knowledge or the fact that their family was involved in any sort of way, shape or form with the CCP. But now we have bank records that reveal otherwise. We don’t know what the Bidens did in return for this money,” Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News on Sunday.
Comer accused the president of lying about his personal involvement in Hunter Biden’s deals.
“Well, we know that when the president was vice president in the Obama administration, he made several trips to China. He brought his son and some of these associates with him. They met in different places with some of these people that the president claimed he never met with,” Comer said. “So we know the president hasn’t been truthful about his involvement when he was vice president. But from talking to former associates that were involved with Hunter Biden, what we know the Biden family had agreed to help China do was get their foot in the door.
Comer continued: “And the American energy industry not just purchased liquefied natural gas, but also purchased interest in drillers for natural gas, as well as try to do things like help China buy farmland.”
Comer noted during his appearance on Bartiromo’s show that his committee had not found any evidence that the Bidens had invested the money in other companies. The only evidence they found was that the Bidens had pocketed the money they had received from these companies.
“We want to know what exactly the money was for,” Comer said. “People like to say that Hunter Biden had legitimate business dealings with China. What were those business dealings?”
Last week, Comer’s committee stated in a memo that Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden, and a fourth unidentified Biden received a $1.3 million portion of a $3 million payment from State Energy HK Limited. That company had close links with CEFC China Energy, which an investigation by Sen. Charles Grassley’s staff last fall found had close ties with the People Liberation Army (PLA) and its intelligence operations.
That money filtered to the Bidens through Robinson Walker, LLC., a company run by Biden associate Rob Walker, who Comer suggested could be asked to testify as to what the money was intended for. Walker had been the conduit through whom CEFC China Energy Chairman Ye Jianming had first come into contact with Hunter Biden.
Ye had served as deputy secretary general of the China Association for International Friendly Contacts (CAIFC), which a report in the South China Morning Post identified as an apparatus of Chinese military intelligence.
“Gongwen Dong is a business associate of Ye who executed numerous transactions on Ye’s behalf. According to reports, Gongwen formerly served as chief financial officer at Radiance Property Holdings, a firm now ‘controlled and run by Lam Ting Keung, a businessman with deep connections to ‘united front’ groups linked to Chinese intelligence,” Grassley’s letter said regarding Gongwen, another Hunter Biden business associate who had a close association with Ye.
Grassley noted that Hunter Biden was well aware that his business associate Patrick Ho was directly connected with the Chinese intelligence apparatus.
“What we were told from people in the business is that the Biden’s basically were influence peddling,” Comer said. “They were promising to help China open doors in the United States and to navigate the bureaucracy to the point they could start buying up ownership in American energy companies.”
Comer suggested all of this ultimately points back to the president himself.

Biden DOES have a China money problem. That’s the reason for his decision to hide the laptop. It leads to him directly which leads to more looking and more discovery.
