President Joe Biden claimed his family did not make any money in China, but first son Hunter Biden listed his father's Delaware home as the beneficiary address for two 2019 bank wires of Chinese origin, House Republicans revealed after obtaining transfer records.

The House Oversight Committee obtained the financial records via subpoena, which show that the younger Biden received two wires from China in the amounts of $250,000 and $10,000 in 2019. At least one payment came from longtime associate Jonathan Li.

"Bank records don't lie but President Joe Biden does," Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said in a press release. "In 2020, Joe Biden told Americans that his family never received money from China. We've already proved that to be a lie earlier this year, and now we know that two wires originating from Beijing listed Joe Biden's Wilmington home as the beneficiary address when he was running for President of the United States."

"When Joe Biden was vice president, he spoke on the phone and had coffee with Jonathan Li in Beijing, and later wrote a college letter or recommendation for his children," Comer went on. "Joe Biden's abuse of public office for his family's financial gain threatens our national security. What did the Bidens do with this money from Beijing? Americans demand and deserve accountability for President Biden and the First Family's corruption."

The first son's dealings in China have attracted considerable scrutiny from Republicans, in particular a deal with the now-defunct CEFC China Energy. That deal has drawn particular attention due to a 2017 email from Hunter's laptop referencing to "10 held by H for the big guy," which former Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski has confirmed was a reference to Joe Biden.
