WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the wake of growing allegations of corruption involving the Biden family, federal agencies and mainstream media are facing criticism for their response to the claims. The allegations suggest that the Biden family may have been involved in financial dealings with foreign entities, raising questions about potential conflicts of interest.
According to a recent testimony by IRS special agent Joseph Ziegler before the House Oversight Committee, the Biden family, including President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, allegedly received more than $17 million from foreign sources between 2014 and 2019.
Ziegler stated during the hearing, “This brings the total amount of foreign income streams received to approximately $17 million, correct?” to which he confirmed, “That is correct.”
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) has raised concerns that these foreign payments may be part of an influence-peddling campaign, allowing foreign entities to gain access to the Bidens and potentially influence U.S. foreign policy decisions. Comer argued,
"Despite creating many companies after the vice president took office, the Biden family used associate companies to receive millions of dollars from foreign companies in China, Ukraine, and Romania after foreign companies sent money to business associate companies."
The allegations have sparked demands for more scrutiny and action from Republicans, who argue that if any average American were involved in similar financial transactions, legal consequences would likely follow. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released an FD-1023 report detailing a confidential human source’s claims of a criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and Ukrainian business Burisma.
The report suggests that Burisma’s owner referenced the firing of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, a matter that Biden was previously tied to during his time as vice president.
“This brings the total amount of foreign income streams received to approximately $17 million, correct?”
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) asked Ziegler during Wednesday’s hearing. “That is correct,” Ziegler confirmed.

While the allegations against the Biden family continue to raise concerns, some Democrats have argued that the claims lack concrete evidence and are politically motivated. However, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer claims that the foreign payments were part of an “influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Bidens.”
The significance of these allegations lies in the potential implications for the Biden family and the Democratic party as a whole. Transparency and accountability have become crucial factors as the allegations continue to gain attention.
The issue has ignited a debate over the need for thorough investigations to either substantiate or refute the claims. As more documents and testimonies emerge, the pressure mounts on federal agencies to address the allegations with utmost diligence and impartiality.
The topic remains contentious as Republicans call for greater transparency, while Democrats urge caution and insist on adherence to due process.
As the situation unfolds, it remains to be seen how federal agencies, mainstream media, and both political parties will respond to the growing evidence and demands for accountability.
