New detailed bank records show $20 million in payments to the Biden family and their partners from foreign actors in places like Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan during Joe’s time as vice president.
House Oversight Republicans released documents suggesting Hunter and his former business partner Devon Archer used shell companies to ‘hide’ millions in payments from overseas companies and oligarchs – though none of the newly released records directly link payments to Joe Biden.
The new evidence backs up Archer’s bombshell testimony to the committee that Hunter was raking in large amounts of cash from foreign deals, and how his father Joe was present in-person during dinner meetings and sat in on at least 20 phone calls with foreign associates.
Hunter Biden used $142,000 wired from a Kazakh oligarch to his shell company to buy a Porsche before setting up a dinner with his father Joe, the bank records show.
The bank records also reveal links between Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and the Biden family, as well as detail $1 million yearly payments to Hunter and Archer for their positions on the Ukrainian oil company Burisma’s Board of Directors.
They show Baturina – the wife of a former Moscow mayor who has links to Vladimir Putin – wired $3.5 million to Rosemont Seneca Thornton, a shell company belonging to Hunter and Archer, in February 2014.
Three-quarters of a million dollars was then transferred directly to Archer, and the rest was used to fund a new company, Rosemont Seneca Bohai.
The bank record shows a transfer of $3.5 million on February 14, 2014 and a transfer of $2.7 million to Rosemont Seneca Bohai on March 11, 2014.
Then, on March 25, 2014 there were two separate transfers – one for $2.2 million and another for $200,000, to another Rosemont Seneca Bohai account.
Archer and Hunter used Rosemont Seneca Bohai to receive other personal foreign payments like those from Burisma.
Republicans on the committee claim Hunter Biden then transferred the money to another Rosemont Seneca Bohai account that he and Archer had access to.
Democrats are pushing back on the Republican’s new release, saying that there is no evidence that Joe received any of the money.
