The GOP held an extraordinary press conference today and laid out a pay-to-play scheme that involved the entire Biden family and multiple foreign countries.
In a sane and just world, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) would be all over this.
During Wednesday’s explosive presser, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) took to the podium and detailed the findings of multiple shell companies set up by the Bidens.
The companies are being used to secretly funnel money to up to nine Biden family members, not just from China but Romania too.
The Romanian details are new to the public and have opened a new line of inquiry for investigators.
Mace warned: “If these allegations — any of these allegations — are proven true, then someone with the last name Biden needs to be charged, prosecuted, and maybe spend a little time in prison.”
“The DOG — DOJ — needs to get off its ass … If these allegations — any of these allegations — are proven true, then someone with the last name Biden needs to be charged, prosecuted, and maybe spend a little time in prison.”

House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-KY) said:
“The Bidens intentionally sought to hide, confuse, and conceal their influence-peddling schemes, but bank records don’t lie.
“The Bidens made millions from foreign nationals providing what seems to be no services other than access and influence.
“From the thousands of records we’ve obtained so far, we know the Biden family set up over a dozen companies when Joe Biden was vice president.
“The Bidens engaged in many intentionally complicated financial transactions to hide these payments and avoid scrutiny.
“In at least one instance, the Bidens’ CCP-linked associates took steps to conceal the source of the payment to the Bidens.
“The Bidens’ foreign entanglements are breathtaking and raise serious questions about why foreign actors targeted the Biden family, what they expected in return, and whether our national security is threatened.
“We will continue to pursue additional bank records to follow the money trail and inform legislative solutions to prevent this type of corruption.
“Americans deserve answers, transparency, and accountability.”
Comer provided details of the findings:
The Complicated Web of Biden Family and Associates’ Companies: Biden family members and business associates created a web of over 20 companies—most were limited liability companies formed after Joe Biden became Vice President.
The Biden Family Received Millions of Dollars from Foreign Sources: Bank records show the Biden family, their business associates, and their companies received over $10 million from foreign nationals’ and their related companies. The Committee has identified payments to Biden family members from foreign companies while he served as Vice President and after he left public office.
The Biden Family Used Business Associates’ Companies to Receive Foreign Funds: Despite creating many companies after Vice President Biden took office, the Biden family used business associates’ companies to receive millions of dollars from foreign companies.
Attempts to Conceal Large Financial Transactions: After foreign companies sent money to business associates’ companies, the Biden family received incremental payments over time to different bank accounts. These complicated financial transactions appear to be meant to conceal the source of the funds and reduce the conspicuousness of the total amounts made into the Biden bank accounts.
Chinese Nationals Hid the Source of the Money: Chinese nationals and companies with significant ties to Chinese intelligence and the Chinese Communist Party hid the source of the funds paid out to the Bidens by layering domestic limited liability companies. The Biden family and associates’ activities in coordination with Chinese nationals and their corporate entities appear to be an attempt to engage in financial deception. Multiple Biden family members received money from the Chinese after it passed through an associate’s account. Additionally, Hunter Biden received money directly into his company’s account from a Chinese-controlled entity.
Biden Family and Associates’ Activities in Romania Indicate Influence Peddling Scheme: The Biden family and associates’ activities in Romania bear clear indicia of a scheme to peddle influence from 2015 to 2017. While Vice President Biden lectured Romania on corruption and ethics, the Bidens received over a million dollars from a company controlled by a Romanian individual accused of corruption, Gabriel Popoviciu, through a Biden family associate.
