Then-Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced the impeachment inquiry in September, citing a “culture of corruption.” On Wednesday, the Oversight Committee presented evidence that Biden received laundered money from the Chinese energy firm CEFC in September 2017. The money allegedly made its way from CEFC through a complicated network of companies owned by Biden family members and into Joe Biden’s pocket in the form of a $40,000 check from his brother James Biden. Evidence had previously emerged that the president’s son Hunter Biden demanded money from a CEFC executive in a July 2017 “shakedown.” “Remember when Joe Biden told the American people that his son didn’t make any money in China?” Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said in a video posted on social media. “Well, not only did he lie about his son Hunter making money in China, but it also turns out that $40,000 in laundered China money landed in Joe Biden’s bank account.”
