House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer revealed Thursday that on March 1, 2017 – less than two months after Joe Biden stepped down as Barack Obama’s vice chairman – State Energy HK Limited, an affiliate to Chinese Communist Party-backed energy company CEFC China Energy, wired $3 million to Biden family associate Rob Walker.
The windfall was then split over a period of approximately three months among at least three members of the Biden clan and two Biden family associates.
Here’s how China’s $3 million was distributed, according to Comer (R-Ky.):
James Gilliar: $1,065,000
Gilliar, a former British special forces officer with ties to British intelligence, was a business partner of Hunter Biden.
His company, European Energy and Infrastructure Group (EEIG) in Abu Dhabi, received its share of the funds from Walker the day after the initial payment of $3 million by State Energy HK Limited.
The Post exclusively reported in October 2020 that Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop included a May 2017 email from Gilliar offering the “big guy” to get 10% of the CEFC deal.
The “big guy” would be President Biden.
John “Rob” Walker: $869,308
The Biden family associate’s Robinson Walker LLC bank account appears to have retained what was left of the $3 million Chinese wire transfer after nearly identical sums of $1,065,000 and $1,065,692 were distributed by Walker to Gilliar and members of the Biden family, respectively.
Walker is a former Clinton administration official whose wife, Betsy Massey Walker, was assistant to first lady Jill Biden during Joe Biden’s vice presidency.
Biden fighter: $610,692
The first son’s Owasco PC and RSTP II, LLC accounts, as well as a First Clearing LLC account that the committee says belongs to Hunter Biden, received six transfers between March 27, 2017 and April 18, 2017 from Robinson Walker LLC in amounts ranging from $10,692 to $300,000.
A spokesperson for Hunter Biden’s legal team said Thursday that “Hunter Biden, a private citizen with every right to pursue his own business activities, has joined several business partners in seeking a joint venture with an energy company. legit in China.
Hunter received his share of good faith start-up funds which he shared with his uncle, James Biden and Hallie Biden … and no one else.
Hunter Biden and his uncle James Biden received some $4.8 million from CEFC China Energy between 2017 and 2018, according to earlier reports of Hunter’s abandoned laptop.
The oversight committee notes that on November 9, 2015, Robinson Walker LLC wired $59,900 to one of Hunter Biden’s accounts and an additional $59,900 to Gilliar’s EEIG account.
The committee does not know which company was responsible for the initial transfer of these funds, totaling $179,836.86, to Walker’s account.
James Biden: $360,000
The president’s brother received five payments between $15,000 and $125,000 from April 3, 2017 to May 18, 2017. The money was transferred by Walker to James Biden’s JBBSR INC account.
James Biden’s work with HillStone International, a subsidiary of construction management firm Hill International, has also come under scrutiny.
Last month, a sworn affidavit claimed the now first sibling used his famous surname to pull construction company Hill International out of a business deal with the Saudi government.
The first brother allegedly told a private investigator that he was often asked to represent Hill at meetings “because of course the name didn’t hurt” and that he attended a meeting in February 2012 with Saudi officials “because of his position and his relationship”. with his older brother.
The private investigator, former Treasury Department official Thomas Sullivan, noted that after speaking with James, the first brother’s wife, Sara, walked him to his car and revealed that her husband and his older brother Joe were very close and that according to Sullivan, “they told each other everything.
Sara Biden also told Sullivan that “he doesn’t like us talking to people,” the former Treasury man recalled – an apparent reference to Joe.
Hallie Biden: $25,000
Beau Biden’s widow, who died of brain cancer in 2015, and the mother of two of the president’s grandchildren, Natalie and Robert Hunter, dated the president’s disgraced son, Hunter, from around 2016 to 2019, a period that included relations with the Chinese. .
According to the committee, Hallie Biden received two separate payments from Walker’s account in March 2017 for a total of $25,000.
She also reportedly received $10,000 from Walker in February 2017, before the Chinese payment of $3 million.
Unknown Biden: $70,000
Four payments were made to an “unknown Biden,” according to the committee, between March 6, 2017 and May 17, 2017. The payments ranged from $5,000 to $25,000.
