The House Oversight Committee has asked Hunter Biden’s business partner, Rob Walker, to testify before the committee after information from subpoenaed financial documents revealed he transferred more than $1 million to members of the Biden family after receiving a $3 million wire. by a Chinese energy company in 2017. .
Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., wrote to Walker on Friday saying he had come forward as a “critical witness” in the committee’s investigation. Comer asked Walker to appear for a taped interview before the committee and to contact committee staff to schedule that interview by March 24.

“Rob Walker is a key witness in our investigation into President Biden’s involvement in his family’s business plans,” committee chairman James Comer said in a statement Friday.
Comer had subpoenaed Bank of America for financial records belonging to Walker and two other business associates of the president’s son.
“When talking about dealings with the Biden family, Rob Walker once said his report would ‘bury us all.’ Why?” Comer asked. “The Oversight Committee has a lot of questions about Rob Walker, and we look forward to getting answers for the American people.”
Comer’s letter to Walker comes after the committee reviewed subpoenaed Bank of America records and found that “at least three family members” received lucrative payments from a bank account belonging to Walker.
The records revealed that on March 1, 2017, less than two months after then-Vice President Joe Biden left, State Energy HK Limited, a separate Chinese company, sent $3 million to Robinson Walker, LLC.

“The next day, Robinson Walker, LLC sent $1,065,000 to the European Energy and Infrastructure Group in Abu Dhabi, a company associated with James Gilliar,” a committee memo states.
Gilliar was a business partner of Hunter Biden involved in his foreign business ventures.
“After the Robinson Walker, LLC account received $3 million from State Energy HK Limited, members of the Biden family and their companies began receiving additional payments over a period of approximately three months,” the memo states. “The recipients of the money were Hally Biden, companies associated with Hunter Biden and James Biden, and an unknown bank account called ‘Mayden.’
According to the committee, President Biden’s daughter-in-law Hallie Biden, widow of President Biden’s son Bo, who later had a romantic relationship with Hunter, received a payment from Walker’s account — Robinson Walker, LLC — in March 2017 totaling $25,000.
A bank account identified as an unknown “Biden” also received $70,000 from Robinson Walker, LLC between March and May 2017.
An account labeled “Owasco PC,” which belonged to Hunter Biden, received $500,000 between March and May 2017.
An account labeled “JBBSR INC,” which belonged to James Biden, received $360,000 between March and May 2017.
An account labeled “First Clearing, LLC” also received $100,000. It’s unclear who owns that account, but committee sources told Fox News Digital it’s believed to belong to Hunter Biden.
A spokesman for Hunter Biden’s legal team said this week: “Here we go again, as Rep. Comer takes something old and tries to make it new by wrapping it in a wild and baseless right-wing conspiracy.”

But the spokesman confirmed the payments: “The accounts listed so dramatically by Rep. Comer belonged to Hunter, his uncle and Hallie – no one else.”
When asked to comment on financial records revealing more than $1 million to members of the Biden family, the White House did not deny the findings but criticized Comer and the committee’s investigation into the Biden family.
“Following a sickening attack lamenting that President Bo’s late son was never prosecuted while he was alive, Congressman Comer has now decided to go after Bo’s widow,” White House spokesman Ian Sams said, referring to comments he made earlier that a month for the campaign contributions of the late Bo Biden.
“Instead of outlandishly attacking the President’s family, perhaps House Republicans should focus on working with the President to get results for American families on important priorities like lowering costs and strengthening health care,” Shams said. .
