(TheProudRepublic.com) – Highlighting the influence of foreign interests over the Biden family, Jonathan Turley commented on a new report that reveals Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden, made monthly payments to his father from a bank account seemingly used to receive funds from Chinese business associates.
The Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, recently disclosed redacted bank records that show direct payments to Joe Biden from a bank account owned by Hunter’s firm, Owasco P.C. These payments reportedly began in September 2018.
Turley, a legal analyst for Fox News, expressed his belief that an impeachment vote against Joe Biden is “overdue,” stating there is “ample evidence to justify an impeachment inquiry.” He said:
“I can’t imagine how anyone would look at this evidence and not believe that a formal inquiry should begin. There’s been a litany of lies that have come out of the Biden family and the White House. The president denied knowing about any of these business arrangements. Even Hunter said that wasn’t true.”
Turley went on to list additional pieces of evidence, including the fact that “Joe Biden’s house [was] being listed for some of these payments by Hunter Biden.” He continued:
“It’s rather daunting to imagine what you need according to the Democrats. So I think the moment of truth has arrived. Democrats have either got to show that they stand against corruption and approve an inquiry or they have to take ownership of this. Influence peddling is the favorite form of corruption in Washington but none of us have seen the likes of this.”
In late September, following the first impeachment inquiry hearing for Joe Biden, Comer subpoenaed the personal and business bank records of Hunter Biden and his uncle, James Biden.
Since then, Comer has released bank records that show how funds originating in China resulted in a $40,000 check to Joe Biden in September 2017. This revelation adds another layer to the growing controversy surrounding the Biden family’s secretive financial dealings with foreign entities.
