Members of the House Republican team investigating the business dealings of the family of President Joe Biden now believe that members accepted about $50 million in foreign money. This would represent a major increase over the $30 million recently believed and could have major implications in the impeachment inquiry against the president.
The accusations made by multiple members of Congress revolve around a number of foreign business deals involving Hunter Biden and the president’s brother James Biden.
“Based on the evidence I’ve seen so far, I think the number is going to be north of $50 million that we’re talking about here,” said Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC).
Investigations from the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and the House Oversight Committee, Chaired by Rep. James Comer (R-KY) have found payments to companies linked to the Biden family from Russia, China, Ukraine, Romania and Kazakhstan.
This will go down as one of the most politically corrupt presidents and families in U.S. history,” Mace said. “And we’ve got to show and prove it to the American people. We’ve got to show them everything that we have.”
That’s the problem. He SHOULD be indicted for accepting bribes from Ukrainian Oligarchs, Russian Oligarchs, and Chinese officials.
While I have you, what exactly was the Biden family business? https://t.co/xZ1796pwbP

Comer said that the $50 million figure cited by Mace is “realistic,” saying that there will be a future indictment against James Biden, which he calls “the first crack” at the president’s brother.
The accusations also come as the House opened its impeachment inquiry into the president.
Among the concerns of House Republicans are accusations of intervention by the Department of Justice (DOJ) on behalf of Biden’s son. IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley testified before Congress that U.S. Attorney David Weiss twice sought charges against Hunter Biden but was rebuffed by two different DOJ officials.
Furthermore, Weiss offered Hunter Biden a plea deal on firearms and tax issues that would have likely had him avoid jail time. Following the IRS revelations, the plea deal fell apart.
Hunter Biden currently faces several federal felony firearms charges and may soon be hit with tax counts, as well. His attorneys are suing the IRS for the breach of information.
