In a shocking revelation, former President Trump accused President Joe Biden and his family of accepting bribes from foreign entities. The allegations, backed by newly released financial records, have sent shockwaves through the political landscape.
James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, stated on Wednesday that Hunter Biden provided access to his father for global oligarchs during his tenure as vice president.
According to Comer, Hunter Biden’s foreign associates from Russia, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine were even invited to dine with the Bidens at Café Milano in Washington.
Comer further alleged Joe Biden was aware of his son’s business dealings and allowed himself to be used as a brand to enrich the Biden family.
After Joe Biden had dinner with Kazakhstani officials as the sitting VP in 2014, the Bidens instructed the Kazakhstanis to wire them $142,300 for this sports car.

Trump, in a conversation with Newsmax host Eric Bolling at his golf establishment in Bedminster, NJ, pointed to bank documents indicating that the Biden family received an aggregate sum of no less than $20 million from foreign entities.
These records, obtained by the House Oversight Committee, are being touted by Trump as irrefutable evidence of then-Vice President Biden being influenced by monetary incentives.
The former president didn’t mince words, stating, “That’s a tremendous amount of money. Nothing was done for it. It was just a bribe. It’s just a bribe – extortion and a bribe.”
He also drew attention to the incident involving Viktor Shokin, the Ukrainian prosecutor-general who was dismissed following Joe Biden’s veiled threat of withholding $1 billion in U.S. financial aid.
Republicans need to open their eyes.
The media is going to do their best to try to say impeaching Biden is political paybacks.
That’s 100% BULLSHIT.
Impeachment of Biden is because he’s a CRIMINAL and we have a mountain of evidence proving it and gaining more daily.

Trump went on to accuse Biden of being under China’s influence, referring to him as a “Manchurian candidate.” He suggested that Biden’s reluctance towards China stems from a significant financial entanglement hidden from public scrutiny.
Trump stated, “China’s specter casts an undue shadow upon him. The rationale behind this timidity stems, I am inclined to believe, from an avaricious relationship obscured from the public eye.”
The former president, who is currently a favorite among GOP voters for the 2024 election, called on Republican members of Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings against Joe Biden on grounds of alleged corruption.
He claimed the charges brought against him by the Biden Justice Department were retaliatory actions in response to congressional inquiries into the Biden family’s dealings.
Trump also criticized some Republican colleagues who expressed reservations about prioritizing Biden’s impeachment over other matters.
He argued, “I heard a couple of Republicans – nice people – and they said, ‘Well, we have other things to worry about.’ We have to do this. We have to deal with it. What can be more important than this?”
The bank records reveal a transaction on February 14, 2014, showing a transfer of $3.5 million from Yelena Baturina, a Russian tycoon, to Rosemont Seneca Thornton, a company overseen by Hunter Biden.
Trump speculated that these funds indirectly or possibly directly reached Joe Biden. He referred back to his 2020 debate with Biden, where he raised this issue. Trump labeled Biden as “corrupt,” “crooked,” and “compromised,” attributing these characteristics to his interactions with China.
