U.S. House Oversight Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., released financial documents he says backs up allegations that the Biden family and associates received more than $20 million in payments from foreign entities.

Comer released the bank records Wednesday, the latest installment in a string of troubling evidence for President Joe Biden. Notably, the records raise the alleged income to the Biden family and associates to over $20 million and highlight alleged involvement from Russia and Kazakhstan.

The committee released bank records appearing to show payments in the millions of dollars from “oligarchs” in Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Russia.

“Hunter Biden received millions of dollars in payments from Yelena Baturina, Burisma, and Kenes Rakishev. Vice President Biden had dinner with them in the spring of 2014 and 2015 in Washington, D.C.,” the committee said.

Comer’s 19-page Wednesday memo lays out in detail the alleged financial dealings, saying the Biden family and associates used at least 20 shell companies to funnel money undetected.

“In February 2014, a Russian Oligarch Sent $3.5 Million to a Shell Company Associated with Hunter Biden and Devon Archer: Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina transferred $3.5 million to Rosemont Seneca Thornton, a shell company,” Comer’s office said. “Approximately $1 million was transferred to Devon Archer, and the remainder was used to initially fund a new company account, Rosemont Seneca Bohai, which Devon Archer and Hunter Biden used to receive other foreign wires.”

Notably, one payment may have been the exact amount needed for a sports car for Hunter Biden.

From Comer’s office:

In April 2014, a Kazakhstani Oligarch Wired the Exact Price of Biden’s Sportscar to a Bank Account Used by Archer and Biden: In February 2014, Hunter Biden met with Kenes Rakishev at a Washington, D.C. hotel. Rakishev worked closely with the prime minister of Kazakhstan, Karim Massimov. In April, Rakishev, a Kazakhstani oligarch, wired $142,300 to Rosemont Seneca Bohai. The next day, a payment was made from Rosemont Seneca Bohai for a sportscar for Hunter Biden in the amount of $142,300. Archer and Biden then arranged for Burisma executives to visit Kazakhstan in June 2014 to evaluate a three-way deal among Burisma, a Chinese state-owned company, and the government of Kazakhstan.

Hunter Biden received millions of dollars in payments from Yelena Baturina, Burisma, and Kenes Rakishev. Vice President Biden had dinner with them in the spring of 2014 and 2015 in Washington, D.C.

Comer pointed to testimony from Devon Archer, a longtime friend and business associate of Hunter Biden, the president’s son. Archer testified that Hunter used his father’s name and phone calls from his father to advance his business dealings overseas.

“During Joe Biden’s vice presidency, Hunter Biden sold him as ‘the brand’ to reap millions from oligarchs in Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine,” Comer said. “It appears no real services were provided other than access to the Biden network, including Joe Biden himself. And Hunter Biden seems to have delivered.”

These documents come after IRS whistleblowers who helped investigate Hunter Biden for alleged tax crimes documented about $17 million in payments from foreign entities. They also testified that the Department of Justice interfered with the investigation on Hunter’s behalf, prompting them to blow the whistle.

“This is made clear by meals at Café Milano where then-Vice President Joe Biden dined with oligarchs from around the world who had sent money to his son,” Comer said. “It’s clear Joe Biden knew about his son’s business dealings and allowed himself to be ‘the brand’ sold to enrich the Biden family while he was Vice President of the United States.”

President Biden has repeatedly dismissed claims that he benefited from overseas dealings with his son.

Meanwhile, three leading House Republican Committee chairs have teamed up to investigate the Department of Justice’s plea deal with Hunter Biden, which is now under more scrutiny given allegations of DOJ wrongdoing, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith, R-Mo., said in a letter to the DOJ on the matter.

“The Department’s unusual plea and pretrial diversion agreements with Mr. Biden raise serious concerns – especially when combined with recent whistleblower allegations – that the Department has provided preferential treatment toward Mr. Biden in the course of its investigation and proposed resolution of his alleged criminal conduct,” the letter said.

  1. The foundational underpinnings of treasonous behavior.

    Fry them… and the POS that runs the DOJ at the same time. Later on the same DOJ guy can draft one of the notes they’re so proud of. “Let this stand as an example to others considering treasonous behavior… the DOJ will not stand for it. Look what happened to me and my boss”.

  2. Maybe that VP girl would actually be better. At least her screwups would be hers and not whoever is pulling the strings on the puppet. She has too much Latino to be played, I should hope. Impeachment is in order.

  3. Doest’t speak well of today’s generations (boomers, gen x, and millennials) they elect a man the generations in 1988 were too smart and they recognized what a phoney and corrupt man Biden was back then. Apparently Dukakis was smarter to win support for the democrat nomination over Biden. Biden had to wait until generations who’d be most like him took the helm.

  4. Looks a little green around the gills in the pic. Like he’s trying to remember where he left that bag of marching powder.

  5. People are sick of double justice. Al Capone deserves a posthumous pardon from the “Big Guy.”

  6. A big nothing burger and nothing will come of it. They’re just angry their Dear Orange Leader is getting arrested.

    • cman, a nothing burger? You, don’t see any correlation between Biden and his family taking $ from the Chi-Com’s, for example and classified doc’s being found at the “Think Tank” which was funded by the Chi-Com’s?

  7. Maybe Northern Dynasty should have put Hunter on their board. At least the Pebble Mine would be well underway.

    • Estimated bribery cost:

      $30 million to the Biden Crime Family.
      Put that in your laptop and send it to the repair shop.

  8. And Turtle Man, AKA Mitch McConnell, is warning against Republicans impeaching Beijing Biden! Uniparty scum!

  9. Joe was forced to the back of the bus in his first race because of plagiarism.
    He knew he got caught outright lying at the time.
    That seems to be a well learned trait many years ago that didnt seem to bother voters this time around.
    A lot of voters memories are as short as his or they simply dont care enough to look at a candidates performance of a lifetime but instead listen to “the Polls” and follow the herd.
    There was multitudes of red flags throughout his career as a senator.
    Obama even tried to distance himself from Joe by telling his comrade “leave it to Joe Biden, He knows how to really f**k s**t up” when they claimed Joe won the primary from a field of clowns.
    A big share of the current voters werent around then and no one bothered to do any research on Joe’s history of plagiaristic speech.
    He just wasnt smart enough to come up with his own ideas or make his own speeches back then as well as now.
    Therefore He makes excellent puppet material except for stumbling over words because they are not his own….and sadly He is just a weak old man who cant stand up on his own merits because he has none.
    My guess He is Barrack Obama 2.0 which gives him 3 terms as president.
    Obama HAD to know of his corruption scheme while they were partying together in the big white house on the hill. Obama is not as stupid as Joe.
    That is why Obama is the puppet master and Joe is just dangling from above until the fire starts raging out of control then Obama will drop the ropes and pretend he’s gardening at the vineyard.
    Obama sought out a (stupid) puppet when He was running because He knew VP’s always have a chance to move in to the big house which gave him at least 3 terms. 4 if people dont wake up and smell the sewage leaking….the smell is getting stronger by the day and Garland may run out of perfume soon.

  10. And those joined at the hip were a real force for good also evidently with those waiting in the wings with polished halos yearning for a turn at a trough. All demure, maiden fisherwomen notwithstanding oinking daintily along as is their want. Church on Sunday. Ooh, babies!

  11. Enough he should have been sent packing after he botched the exit from Afghanistan and got 13 of our nations kids killed. I can’t even look at the crooked scumbag anymore. His brainless incompetence is remarkable.

  12. Not to worry. Democrats will vote for anyone labeled “democrat.” Sp don’t get your hopes up. The so-called mainline press isn’t saying a peep about all of this. Reminds me of the Nixon days but with press shutdown.

  13. If Repubs have “found” 20 million bucks of questionable Biden bank deposits, we can safely assume that the real number is much, much higher. And while they are “investigating” Biden, why not “investigate” Uniparty scum like Lindsey Graham & Mitt Romney, who appear to be part & parcel of Biden’s money laundering scam in Ukraine.
