House Republicans delivered a surprising update on Friday regarding their ongoing corruption investigations involving President Joe Biden and his family.
Previously, GOP leaders in the House had indicated that their investigators had discovered approximately $20 million in payments that they considered improper and illicit, with funds allegedly making their way to various members of the Biden family, including a potential bribe to then-Vice President Joe Biden.
However, it appears that this initial figure significantly underestimated the extent of the alleged financial improprieties.
“Republican lawmakers recently predicted their investigation into the Biden family could prove the Biden business raked in more than $50 million, about $30 million more than bank records show thus far,” Breitbart News reported on Saturday.
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) told Fox News: “Based on the evidence I’ve seen so far, I think the number is going to be north of $50 million that we’re talking about here.”
Breitbart also noted:
Throughout the investigation, the House Oversight Committee unveiled several tranches of Biden business bank records. Those showed the Biden business received at least $20 million from business schemes in Romania, China, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. In total, nine Biden family members received payments from the family foreign business ventures, including two of Joe Biden’s grandchildren.
“This will go down as one of the most politically corrupt presidents and families in U.S. history,” Mace predicted. “And we’ve got to show and prove it to the American people. We’ve got to show them everything that we have.”
House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) also blasted the corruption:
“Do you believe that number is realistic and right?” Hannity asked.
“I do think it’s realistic,” said Comer, who added that the GOP-led committees have yet to obtain bank records for Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and various members of the president’s family. That includes Jim Biden, Joe’s Brother, “who secretly negotiated a $140 million settlement deal in 2012 between a U.S. company and the Saudi Arabian government due to his relationship with then-Vice President Joe Biden, court documents revealed,” Breitbart added.
“We haven’t gotten to Jim Biden,” Comer said. “The subpoena for Jim Biden’s personal bank records will be the first crack at Jim Biden. Remember, Jim Biden didn’t leave a laptop lying around, so it’s not been as easy to track his transactions.”
Subpoenas for Hunter and Jim Biden could even be going out as early as this week…
“We believe that this was a very organized crime ring because of the way the money was disbursed through LLCs and the shell companies and the way the money was disbursed through the various Biden members,” Comer told Hannity.
“Joe Biden was very involved in this,” Comer added. “He knew what the family was doing.”
In July, an investigative journalist had an unexpected encounter when he dialed the number of a clandestine cell phone linked to an alleged bribery scheme involving Joe Biden.
John Solomon, a correspondent for Just the News, revealed in an interview on the Real America’s Voice streaming network that when he called the phone number, which was reportedly being financed by Hunter Biden, it was Joe Biden himself who answered the call.
“There had been some documents that law enforcement had gotten to other media. One of those documents got leaked to me, and it had a cell phone number that Hunter Biden was paying for, so I figured this was my chance. I’ve been trying to get fair comment from Hunter Biden, so I’m gonna call the cell phone!” Solomon said.
“So I called the cell phone, and guess who picked up the phone? Joe Biden!” he said. “Joe Biden! Boy was he shocked when he got — when he picked up the phone and found out it was me. He hung up pretty quickly!”
John Solomon is an American treasure.
