The House Oversight Committee has disclosed bank records that shed light on Hunter Biden’s business connections in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine, bringing the total documented income from these foreign sources to $20 million. These records show details of Hunter’s financial engagements, such as earning up to $1 million per year from Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings, and receiving money from a Kazakhstani businessman to buy a luxury car. The information corroborates a longstanding debate over the nature of his international business relationships.
Committee chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) has specifically accused Hunter Biden of selling access to his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to business figures in these post-Soviet countries.
“During Joe Biden’s vice presidency, Hunter Biden sold him as ‘the brand’ to reap millions from oligarchs in Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine. It appears no real services were provided other than access to the Biden network, including Joe Biden himself,
“And Hunter Biden seems to have delivered. This is made clear by meals at Café Milano where then-Vice President Joe Biden dined with oligarchs from around the world who had sent money to his son,”
“It’s clear Joe Biden knew about his son’s business dealings and allowed himself to be ‘the brand’ sold to enrich the Biden family while he was Vice President of the United States.”
The records also reveal the financial movement between various entities controlled by Hunter Biden and his associate Archer. Archer’s deposition exposed a $3.5 million transfer from Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina to the Rosemont Seneca Thornton account, which subsequently transferred money to Archer and to another account, Rosemont Seneca Bohai. These transactions highlight the intricate nature of Hunter Biden’s financial arrangements and connections, raising questions about their purpose and legality.
