Hallie Biden, the widow of Beau Biden, received cash from China bank wires in March 2017, less than two months after President Joe Biden left office as vice president, according to a memo released Thursday by the House Oversight and Accountability Committee. The money was sent from the company Robinson Walker LLC to several members of the Biden family and companies associated with them.
The panel, led by Rep. James Comer of Kentucky, said Thursday that it obtained new records after subpoenaing Bank of America. It also released a letter (pdf) revealing that the bank had identified a “Robinson Walker, LLC” account that had transferred money from State Energy HK Limited.
In the release, Comer said that his investigators found evidence that the cash was sent to accounts linked to other Biden family members, including Hunter Biden, James Biden and Hallie Biden, as well as to companies associated with them. However, he did not provide details about the services provided or why the Biden family received the money.
The top Democrat on the Oversight Committee, Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, has criticized Comer for releasing the memo, which he says is a political attack against Biden. He said the panel was prying into private lives of Biden family business associates by subpoenaing banking records.
Comer defended his investigation, noting that it is based on evidence gathered through the committee’s subpoenaing of bank documents and an audit conducted by the Treasury Department. He added that the committee is reviewing those reports to see what they reveal.
As part of the inquiry, Comer has subpoenaed bank records tied to the Bidens and others, and he expects those reports to yield more information about how much money was transferred to and from various family members and companies associated with them. He vowed that he would not rest until the facts were revealed and that he would hold Biden to account for any wrongdoing.

WASHINGTON—Today, the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability issued a memorandum revealing new evidence resulting from the investigation into the Biden family’s influence peddling and business schemes. Subpoenaed financial records show that from 2015 to 2017, Biden family members – Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden, and an unknown “Biden” – and their companies collectively received $1.3 million in payments from accounts related to Rob Walker, a Biden family associate.
Notably, on March 1, 2017, less than two months after Vice President Joe Biden left public office, State Energy HK Limited, a Chinese company, wired $3 million to Rob Walker’s company. The next day, the company wired $1,065,000 to a company associated with James Gilliar, another Biden family associate. Afterwards, the Biden family received approximately $1,065,000 in payments over a three-month period in different bank accounts. From the bank records, it appears that the Biden family received approximately one-third of the money obtained from the China wire.
Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued the following statement on this new evidence of the Biden family’s suspicious business transactions:
“Democrats described our subpoena as providing nothing more than records for Papa John’s and Starbucks, but they failed to mention the records we’ve received documenting the Biden family’s business schemes. Over the course of several years, members of the Biden family and their companies received over $1.3 million in payments from accounts related to their associate, Rob Walker. Most of this money came as a result of a wire from a Chinese energy company and went not only to Hunter and James Biden, but also to Hallie Biden and an unknown ‘Biden.’ It is unclear what services were provided to obtain this exorbitant amount of money.
“The Oversight Committee is concerned about the national security implications resulting from President Biden’s family receiving millions of dollars from foreign nationals. We will continue to follow the money trail and facts to determine if President Biden is compromised by his family’s business schemes and if there is a national security threat.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer revealed on Thursday that on March 1, 2017 – less than two months after Joe Biden left office as Barack Obama’s vice president – State Energy HK Limited, a firm affiliated with Chinese Communist Party-backed energy company CEFC China Energy, wired $3 million to Biden family associate Rob Walker.
The windfall was subsequently divvied up over a period of about three months to at least three members of the Biden clan, and two Biden family associates.
Here’s how the $3 million from China was distributed, according to Comer (R-Ky.):
James Gilliar: $1,065,000
Gilliar, a former British special forces officer with ties to UK intelligence services, was a business partner of Hunter Biden’s.
His company, European Energy and Infrastructure Group (EEIG) in Abu Dhabi, was wired his share of the funds by Walker the day after the initial $3 million payment by State Energy HK Limited.
The Post exclusively reported in October 2020 that Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop included a May 2017 email from Gilliar proposing that the “big guy” get 10% of the CEFC deal.
John “Rob” Walker: $869,308
The Biden family associate’s Robinson Walker LLC bank account appears to have kept what was left of the $3 million Chinese wire transfer after near identical sums of $1,065,000 and $1,065,692 were distributed by Walker to Gilliar and members of the Biden family, respectively.
Walker is a former Clinton administration official whose wife, Betsy Massey Walker, was an assistant to first lady Jill Biden during Joe Biden’s vice presidency.
Hunter Biden: $610,692
The first son’s Owasco PC and RSTP II, LLC accounts, as well as a First Clearing LLC account that the committee believes belongs to Hunter Biden, received six wires between March 27, 2017, and April 18, 2017, from Robinson Walker LLC in amounts ranging from $10,692 to $300,000.
A spokesperson for Hunter Biden’s legal team said Thursday that “Hunter Biden, a private citizen with every right to pursue his own business endeavors, joined several business partners in seeking a joint venture with a legitimate energy company in China.
Hunter received his portion of good faith seed funds which he shared with his uncle, James Biden, and Hallie Biden … and nobody else.”
The Oversight Committee notes that on Nov. 9, 2015, Robinson Walker LLC wired $59,900 to one of Hunter Biden’s accounts and another $59,900 to Gilliar’s EEIG account.
The committee is unsure what company was responsible for initially wiring these funds, totaling $179,836.86, to Walker’s account.
James Biden: $360,000
The president’s brother received five payments between $15,000 and $125,000 from April 3, 2017, to May 18, 2017. The money was transferred by Walker into James Biden’s JBBSR INC account.
James Biden’s work with HillStone International, a subsidiary of construction management firm Hill International, has also come under scrutiny.
Last month, a sworn affidavit claimed that the now-first brother leveraged his famous last name to get construction firm Hill International out of a business deal with the Saudi government.
The first brother allegedly told a private investigator that he was often tapped to represent Hill in meetings “because, of course, the name didn’t hurt” and that he had attended a February 2012 meeting with Saudi officials “because of his position and relationship” with his older brother.
The private investigator, former Treasury Department official Thomas Sullivan, noted that after speaking with James, the first brother’s wife, Sara, walked him to his car and revealed that her husband and his older brother Joe were very close and that according to Sullivan, “they told each other everything.”
Sara Biden also told Sullivan that “he doesn’t like us talking to people,” the ex-Treasury man recalled — an apparent reference to Joe.
Hallie Biden: $25,000
The widow of Beau Biden, who died of brain cancer in 2015, and the mother of two of the president’s grandchildren, Natalie and Robert Hunter, dated the president’s disgraced son, Hunter, from around 2016 to 2019, a timeframe that included the Chinese dealings.
According to the committee, Hallie Biden received two separate payments from Walker’s account in March 2017 totaling $25,000.
She also apparently received $10,000 from Walker in February 2017, before the $3 million Chinese payment.
