* Details how Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina sent $3.5m to a shell company

* Republicans say Devon Archer and Hunter used firm to 'hide' foreign payments

New detailed bank records show $20 million in payments to the Biden family and their partners from foreign actors in places like Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan during Joe’s time as vice president. 

House Oversight Republicans released documents suggesting Hunter and his former business partner Devon Archer used shell companies to ‘hide’ millions in payments from overseas companies and oligarchs – though none of the newly released records directly link payments to Joe Biden. 

The new evidence backs up Archer’s bombshell testimony to the committee that Hunter was raking in large amounts of cash from foreign deals, and how his father Joe was present in-person during dinner meetings and sat in on at least 20 phone calls with foreign associates. 

Hunter Biden used $142,000 wired from a Kazakh oligarch to his shell company to buy a Porsche before setting up a dinner with his father Joe, the bank records show.

The bank records also reveal links between Russian billionaire Yelena Baturina and the Biden family, as well as detail $1 million yearly payments to Hunter and Archer for their positions on the Ukrainian oil company Burisma’s Board of Directors.

They show Baturina – the wife of a former Moscow mayor who has links to Vladimir Putin – wired $3.5 million to Rosemont Seneca Thornton, a shell company belonging to Hunter and Archer, in February 2014. 

Three-quarters of a million dollars was then transferred directly to Archer, and the rest was used to fund a new company, Rosemont Seneca Bohai. 

The bank record shows a transfer of $3.5 million on February 14, 2014 and a transfer of $2.7 million to Rosemont Seneca Bohai on March 11, 2014. 

Then, on March 25, 2014 there were two separate transfers – one for $2.2 million and another for $200,000, to another Rosemont Seneca Bohai account. 

Archer and Hunter used Rosemont Seneca Bohai to receive other personal foreign payments like those from Burisma. 

Republicans on the committee claim Hunter Biden then transferred the money to another Rosemont Seneca Bohai account that he and Archer had access to. 

Democrats are pushing back on the Republican’s new release, saying that there is no evidence that Joe received any of the money. 

‘Committee Republicans have once again released information on financial transactions that do not involve the President. Instead, they rehash the same Hunter Biden business dealings that Congressional Republicans identified at least three years ago,’ said top Oversight Democrat Jamie Raskin, D-Md.  

 

Yelena Baturina

Then-Vice President Biden attended a dinner with Baturina, Hunter, Archer and other at Cafe Milano in Washington, D.C. in the spring of 2014. 

When Biden sanctioned a slew of Russian oligarchs after the nation’s invasion of Ukraine, he left Baturina off the list. 

Another receipt shows how a Kazakhstani oil oligarch Kenes Rakishev used his Singaporean company – Novatus Holdings – to wire Rosemont Seneca Bohai $142,300 – the exact cost of Hunter’s sportscar he bought the next day. 

According to Archer, Hunter first bought a Fisker electric car but then switched to the Porsche.

In 2018, Hunter took photos of himself driving his Porsche at 172mph in Las Vegas and smoking crack behind the wheel in a residential area

During his testimony before the committee, Archer said he did not know the purpose of the wire. But according to email correspondence, Rakishev had wanted Secretary of State John Kerry to visit Kazakhstan. 

There was a second dinner at Cafe Milano in 2015, where Rakishev, then-VP Biden, Hunter and Archer were present, in addition to Kazakhstan’s now-convicted former prime minister and close friend of Rakishev – Karim Massimov.  

The committee also claimed to have receipts proving that Archer and Biden were paid $1 million each for their role on Burisma’s board – or $83,333 monthly. 

For 2014 and 2015, Hunter Biden and Devon Archer received approximately $3.32 million, the memo shows. 

The Oversight Committee has subpoenaed bank records from six different banks and received thousands of records but has not ‘yet’ subpoenaed bank records for the Biden family.

On Tuesday House Speaker Kevin McCarthy called on President Biden to ‘give us his bank statements’ as Republicans have threatened to launch an impeachment inquiry.  

At first, aides said the president had ‘no knowledge’ of his son’s overseas deals, but have recently tweaked the narrative to say Joe was ‘never in business’ with his son.

‘It appears no real services were provided other than access to the Biden network, including Joe Biden himself. And Hunter Biden seems to have delivered,’ Comer said in a statement Wednesday.

‘It’s clear Joe Biden knew about his son’s business dealings and allowed himself to be ‘the brand’ sold to enrich the Biden family while he was Vice President of the United States.’

Archer testified last week that the Biden ‘brand’ acted as protection for Ukrainian oil company Burisma.

‘I think Burisma would have gone out of business if it didn’t have the brand attached to it,’ Archer told the committee.
