Bank records recently released by the Republican-led House Oversight Committee have once again brought attention to the questionable activities of the Biden family. The records reveal the involvement of wealthy Russian widow Yelena Baturina and Kazakhstani oligarch Kenes Rakishev in financial transactions with Hunter Biden. Notably, Joe Biden, then Vice President, had dinner with both individuals in 2014 and 2015 while they were visiting Washington. This raises concerns about the connection between these individuals and the Bidens.

According to Rep. James Comer, the chairman of the committee, these bank records demonstrate that Hunter Biden “sold” his father’s position as Vice President to secure millions of dollars from oligarchs in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. Comer asserts that Joe Biden is either compromised or corrupt, which poses a threat to national security. He highlights the Biden family’s frequent visits to Café Milano, where the former vice president dined with oligarchs who had sent money to his son. Comer suggests that these meals were merely opportunities for access to the Biden network rather than providing any meaningful services.

The committee’s staff also discovered payments totaling over $20 million to the Biden family and their associates from foreign sources. This occurred while Joe Biden was just a heartbeat away from becoming President of the United States. It is alarming that such significant amounts of money were flowing to the Bidens from abroad, raising questions about potential conflicts of interest.
The bank records also shed light on the financial transactions involving Yelena Baturina. She paid $3.5 million to a shell company affiliated with Hunter Biden and his partner Devon Archer. From there, $1 million was funneled to Archer, and the remaining funds were directed to another venture called Rosemont Seneca Bohai. Hunter and Archer also utilized Rosemont Seneca Bohai for other foreign money transfers.
Furthermore, the committee staff delved into Hunter’s involvement with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. After being hired as legal counsel in April 2014, Hunter met with Burisma’s owner and corporate secretary to secure a board position for $1 million annually. Remarkably, Vice President Biden visited Ukraine shortly after these payments began, indicating a potential connection.
The bank records revealed additional suspicious transactions, such as Kazakhstani oligarch Kenes Rakishev wiring $142,300 to Hunter’s account, mirroring the cost of his new sports car. Hunter later met Rakishev in Kazakhstan to explore a potential partnership involving a Chinese energy company.
Rep. Comer unequivocally states that Joe Biden was aware of his son’s business dealings and willingly participated in enriching the Biden family while serving as Vice President. The evidence of these bank records makes it clear that the father and son team engaged in corrupt activities. This further tarnishes the credibility of the Biden administration and raises significant concerns about their ethics and integrity.
