Florida Congressman Byron Donalds recently gave a compelling House speech explaining how the Biden family is deeply compromised by corrupt activities involving foreign actors in a floor speech.
“Mr. Speaker, President Biden consistently has stated that he never discussed businesses with Hunter Biden’s Associates,” he said. “That is a lie. Let me repeat that. Even for the colleagues across the aisle, it is a lie. Throughout our extensive investigation and from the lips of credible witnesses, it is abundantly clear that the Biden family business is Joe Biden.”
“Let me emphasize, there is no Biden family business except for Joe Biden’s 40-plus- year career in Washington DC That has been the family business,” he continued. “As a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, we have followed the paper trail. We’ve conducted our investigation by the book. We have discovered damning evidence and we continue to do so every day. Our investigation has led to some alarming and eye-opening findings, which point to the president’s knowledge and involvement in illegal business transactions.”
“For example, in 2018, James Biden, the president’s brother, received $600,000 in a loan from AmeriCorps, a financially distressed failing rural hospital operator,” he noted. “Bankruptcy court documents suggested that James Biden received these loans based upon representations that his last name Biden could open doors in the Middle East based on his political connections. Now, we all know James Biden doesn’t have political connections. Joe Biden, his brother, has political connections.”
“Specifically, AmeriCorps wired a $200,000 loan into the account of James and Sarah Biden,” he went on. “Here’s what makes the evidence damning. On the same day, James Biden wrote a $200,000 check from the same account addressed to his brother Joe Biden, and for the American people, the brother of James Biden is the president of the United States.”
“Next example is an email obtained by the committee from a Hunter Biden associate mentioning that 10% of the relevant joint venture that held by Hunter for the big guy, 10% of a relevant joint venture was held for the Big Guy,” he added.
“At this point in the committee’s investigation, we’ve established that Joe Biden is the Big Guy through the web of transactions that purposefully tried to hide the Big Guy’s involvement,” he said. “Let me stress again that Joe Biden is the Biden family business.”
“Let me illustrate an example of the confusing web of transactions,” Donalds said. “A Chinese company sent $5 million to a joint venture between Hunter and an associate. That same day, the joint venture sent $400,000 to an entity that Hunter Biden controls alone. Less than a week later, hunter Biden wired $150,000 from this entity to a company owned by James Biden and James Biden. The president’s brother, Sarah Biden later withdrew $50,000 from the same company less than a week later. Sarah wrote a personal check to Joe Biden, AKA, the Big Guy, AKA, the President of the United States for $40,000, 10% of the 400,000 that was mentioned in the email by the associate to Hunter Biden.”
“Another example is when a confidential human source overheard a Burisma executive claiming to have bribed then Vice President Joe Biden for $5 million,” he noted. “As I stated earlier, Joe Biden consistently says that he never discussed businesses with Hunter Biden’s associate. This was a blatant lie by the Commander-in-Chief and the American people deserve to know the truth. Joe Biden never went, never thought that the oversight committee would get this far in its investigation and additional damning evidence will soon be revealed to the American people.”
“This leads me to my next point. The Foreign Agents’ Registration Act is commonly known as FARA. To be clear, Hunter Biden has never, and I repeat, never registered as a foreign agent, despite his lucrative work being done on behalf of foreign interests and his many travels on Air Force 2,” he said. “That wasn’t just because he missed his dad. Specifically, Hunter has been documented business transactions with a Chinese government-based energy company called CEFC.”
“Interestingly enough, the same company CEFC is the same one that is affiliated with the company that’s in $5 million to Hunter Biden,” Donalds went on. “How is this not the definition of being an acting as a foreign agent? Paul Manafort was convicted for far less. The time is now to open up an impeachment investigation pertaining to the President’s direct link to blatant corruption, pay for play tactics and acting as a co-conspirator to the crimes committed by his family. On behalf of Joe Biden himself, the committee will continue to do our due diligence. We will not be worried about the distractions from the Democrats and from the press. We will dig through the confusing web of Biden LLCs, which I will add Mr. Speaker. The confusion of these companies and the confusion of these transactions were done on purpose to conceal this money from the American people, and I will also add to conceal the money from the Internal Revenue Service because Joe Biden likes to talk about everybody paying their fair share except him and accept his son. They’re not concerned about a fair share.”
“We’re going to continue to… uncover all of the information that is going to outline exactly why, in my opinion, representing the 19th District of Florida, why Joe Biden deserves to be impeached,” he said.
“Mr. Speaker, the President of the United States has taken money from foreign sources,” he concluded. “Meanwhile, the world is on fire. Is the President compromised? Do agents in the Chinese government have the upper hand on the President of the United States while our enemies are on the move? These are serious questions that the House of Representatives has a responsibility to answer, and the way to get all that information is through the impeachment inquiry, which will continue here in the People’s House.”
