A thief and his father are on the side of China. Senate Republicans issued a supplement Thursday to their recent report on Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings — and said $6 million in wire transfers further ties the son of President-elect Joe Biden to China’s communist government. The five-page addendum focuses on former federal official John Robinson “Rob” Walker, who’s described as a “longtime business associate” of Hunter Biden.
Walker has also been accused of warning Tony Bobulinski, who was formerly a business partner of both Walker and Hunter Biden, not to go public with information about their commercial affairs. “Ah, Tony, you’re just going to bury all of us, man,” Walker said, according to Bobulinski. Walker, who held jobs under then-presidents Bill Clinton — for whom he was also a key campaign aide — and George W. Bush, is the sole owner of Robinson Walker LLC, according to Thursday’s report, which cites a May 21, 2017, WhatsApp message provided by Bobulinski.
The report also says confidential records allegedly show that a pair of $3 million wire transfers were deposited in a Robinson Walker bank account on Feb. 23, 2017, and March 1, 2017, by Shanghai-based State Energy HK Ltd. The confidential records note that it’s “unclear what the true purpose is behind these transactions and who the ultimate beneficiary is,” according to the report from the Senate’s Finance Committee and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
But the report calls the cash transfers “a direct link between Walker and the communist Chinese government and, because of his close association with Hunter Biden, yet another tie between Hunter Biden’s financial arrangements and the communist Chinese government.” At the time the money was sent, State Energy HK “was affiliated with CEFC China Energy, which was under the leadership of Ye Jianming,” who reportedly had ties to China’s military and intelligence before he was taken into custody and disappeared in 2018.
