Rep. Comer: "Two weeks ago, I subpoenaed bank records for 3 Hunter Biden business associates. One of the associates, Rob Walker, was wired millions from CCP connected individuals. He then sent money to 3 Biden family members. What were they doing in return for the cash? I will find out."
Report: FBI Mole Known as ‘One-Eye’ Would Tip Off Hunter About Any China Probes

Joe Biden’s Treasury Department has been stymying the effort to get suspicious activity reporters related to the Biden family business deals for years. It’s been a scandal that hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. When Rep. James Comer (R-KY) tried to get the records before the Republicans took over the House, the Biden administration changed the rules that prevented members of Congress from getting the records unless it was from the Committees (which Democrats controlled). Then, even when the Republicans took over the House, the Treasury Department wasn’t complying initially.
But as we reported, the House Oversight Committees subpoenaed the bank records. They had scheduled a Treasury official to come in and explain in an interview on the record why the Department hadn’t complied with their requests. On Tuesday, Comer, now Chair of the Committee, announced that the Treasury Department had finally been forced to cooperate and was turning over records.
Comer also dropped a big tidbit about what they had been able to discover to date in their investigations. They had subpoenaed bank records from three Hunter Biden associates, including Rob Walker. They’re now reviewing 14 years of SARs from Bank of America.
Comer hit Sean Hannity’s show Monday night and Fox this morning to talk about some of what they’ve found so far.
According to Comer, Walker was wired millions by CCP-connected individuals two months after Joe Biden stopped being vice president. The money was then distributed to three Biden family members, including a Biden family member whose name has never been included previously as a recipient of any monies. Comer said that he couldn’t identify any related business and that it appeared to go into their personal accounts. He said that he believes it’s influence peddling, and that raises questions about people then being foreign agents. You have to be registered to be a foreign agent and that raises possible breaking of the law there as well. “The question is what were the Bidens doing to receive these massive amounts of money?” Comer asked. He also noted this was just one wire and they had many more to go through. He noted the Walker account was also just one account and there were many more associates.

Interestingly, Comer wasn’t giving up that third name and then he repeated there was a “problem” with figuring out what they were doing to get such sums of money from the CCP-connected people. “I think every American should be concerned about that,” Comer declared. “This is an issue of national security.”
How panicked are the Democrats? The ranking member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) tried to deflect and suggested this was somehow “opposition research” for President Donald Trump’s 2024 run. What is so incredibly ironic is that projection — that’s what the Clinton team did in hiring Fusion GPS in their effort to try to smear Trump and promote the Russia collusion hoax. But Comer and the Republicans have been pursuing this information for years, so unlike the Democrats, this isn’t about being slimy. Comer chastised Raskin for his remarks.
George Washington Law professor Jonathan Turley noted that these suspicious activity reports could go a long way to revealing the scope of the influence peddling. “It could also supply added evidence of possible criminal charges over tax crimes as well as unlawful work as a foreign agent. There are also possible allegations of evading financial rules, false statements, and even money laundering,” Turley explained. He also tweeted that “this is an example of why such transparency is needed to fully understand the scope of the alleged influence peddling by the Biden family.”
