Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are trying to bring in John R. Walker, Hunter Biden associate, for questioning after years of digging through his bank records and discovering a $35,000 payment to Hallie Biden.
Panel Chair Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) released a letter Thursday with new details about the $3 million payment Walker received from a Chinese company after subpoenaing Bank of America for his financial records.
The information provided by Comer stated that Walker received a $3 million wire transfer from Chinese State Energy HK Limited, a company affiliated with CEFC China Energy, and then distributed $1.3 million to accounts related to Biden’s family members .
Comer wrote to Walker that the panel is “investigating President Biden’s involvement in his family’s business practices” and “has identified you as a critical witness in this case and reviewed evidence showing that you received millions of dollars from a Chinese energy company and elsewhere’.

The commission “invites you to participate in a transcribed interview with commission staff,” Comer wrote — in language that stopped at an outright demand, but could be a prelude to a subpoena if a witness refuses to comply.
Democrats were outraged by Comer’s public campaign Thursday, with the White House calling it an “attack” on Hallie Biden, the widow of the president’s late son, Beau Biden.
The White House has previously denied any involvement by President Biden in his family’s business practices.
The Republican-run Oversight panel hit back again Friday, posting images of the financial transactions involving Robinson Walker LLC, a company founded by the Hunter Biden associate.

The Oversight panel tweeted: “Hunter Biden did not “share” funds as his attorney claims. The wires came directly from Rob Walker’s company, Robinson Walker LLC, to several of Biden’s family members and businesses, including Hallie Biden. Here are two wires to James and Hunter Biden’s businesses.”
A second image showed a $25,000 transfer to Hallie Biden on March 20, 2017.
Oversight also flagged payments to an “unknown” Biden who the panel said received incremental payments totaling more than $1 million. Comer had also quoted this unidentified person after bringing up a “third” Biden in Fox News interviews before Hallie Biden was exposed as the recipient of the $35,000 — a much smaller amount than went to others after the initial transfer .
The commission continues, “If Hunter Biden got funding, why would he use Robinson Walker LLC instead of his own companies to receive the wire from the Chinese energy company? Why use so many companies and structure payments over 3 months?
A further tweet read: “The Bidens did everything they could to hide their involvement in the deal because they knew the source of the money was shady.”
DailyMail.com has reached out to Walker for comment.
The White House and House Democrats have portrayed the investigation as a brutal one, pointing out that the $3 million to Walker was previously known.
“Following a disgusting attack complaining that the president’s late son, Beau, was never prosecuted in his lifetime, Congressman Comer has now decided to go after Beau’s widow,” White House spokesman Ian Sams said this week. in a statement to DailyMail.com.
Instead of outlandishly attacking the president’s family, perhaps House Republicans should focus on working with the president to deliver results for American families on key priorities like cutting costs and strengthening health care,” he continued.
Comer was also defeated by Representative Jamie Raskin, the top Democrat on the Oversight panel.
“Chairman Comer’s memo proved once again that, after four years of Senate and House Republican investigations into Hunter Biden, they have found no connection to the President of the United States or even any government official,” Raskin said in a statement. declaration.
An Oversight Democrats spokesperson accused Comer of giving the false “impression” that Hallie Biden was involved in getting money out of China by failing to record another transaction, albeit without providing information about what the payments were for.
“After an overly broad and invasive subpoena covering 14 years of financial data, Chairman Comer has issued a memo based on speculation and a handful of picked facts to spark new interest in a previously reported transaction,” the Democratic spokesman said. .
