REPORT: Rob Walker, Who Paid Biden Family Over $1M, Visited WH 16 Times During Biden Vice-Presidency

REPORT: Rob Walker, Who Paid Biden Family Over $1M, Visited WH 16 Times During Biden Vice-Presidency

As RedState reported, banking records obtained by the House Oversight Committee regarding Biden family associates revealed that John Robinson “Rob” Walker, a business associate of Hunter Biden’s whose wife served as Jill Biden’s assistant, made payouts to Hunter, Jim, and Hallie Biden, as well as an as yet “unnamed” Biden, totaling over $1 million between 2015 and 2017. Those payouts came after Walker received $3 million from State Energy HK Limited, a firm affiliated with Chinese Communist Party-backed energy company CEFC China Energy.

Two months after Joe Biden left office as vice president, State Energy HK, a Chinese company, wired $3 million to Robinson Walker, LLC. Then Robinson Walker, LLC, wired approximately a third of that — $1,065,000 — to European Energy and Infrastructure Group (EEIG), a company associated with James Gilliar, who was a partner of Hunter Biden and involved with the foreign transactions of the Biden family.

Then the Biden family received approximately $1,065,692 over three months in different bank accounts. Given the close similarity of the numbers, it looked like each was getting a third of the money from the China wire. Those monies went out to Hunter Biden’s company as well as Hallie Biden and the as-yet-unnamed “Biden.”

The Committee said since this money came so soon after Joe Biden left office, they wanted to know what the Biden family was getting this money for. Also, why was Hallie Biden who was a school counselor, getting this money, why was the money going to different bank accounts, and why did Robinson Walker, LLC get it first (seemingly acting as a “pass-through” account)? Then, of course, who is the unknown “Biden”? When it’s unnamed like that, one has to wonder if it’s the “Big Guy” who they tried not to name in other contexts.

These payouts raise a number of red flags and Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) has vowed to continue digging into the circumstances surrounding these and other Biden family financial dealings.

Now, Fox News is reporting that Walker made 16 visits to the White House during Joe Biden’s tenure as Vice President.

Per the report:

According to visitor logs reviewed by Fox News Digital, John R. Walker, a former Clinton administration official and husband of Betsy Massey Walker, who was a top aide to then-second lady Jill Biden, was listed visiting the White House twice in 2009, five times in 2011, four times in 2012, twice in 2013 and once in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Fox News Digital reached out to the White House multiple times seeking confirmation with over a dozen dates that show a John R. Walker visiting the White House during the Obama-Biden administration, but they did not respond.

During his visits, Walker met with several different Obama-Biden administration officials.

On May 13, 2011, Walker is listed as visiting the White House to meet with David Lane, then-President Obama’s assistant and Counselor to his chief of staff. A Fox News Digital review also found that Lane is a longtime associate of Walker, Hunter Biden, and Hunter’s longtime business partner Eric Schwerin, who visited the White House during the Obama-Biden administration at least 27 times respectively.

Two days before Walker met with Lane at the White House, Hunter invited Lane to a BBQ at his house, prompting Lane to reply, “Looking forward to it, Hunter. See you soon.”

The report goes on to detail a series of e-mail exchanges between Hunter Biden, Lane, Walker (who described himself as acting as Hunter’s surrogate “around the country and abroad pursuing opportunities”), and others regarding references and prospective clients, before adding some additional details regarding Walker’s numerous visits:

In addition to the White House visit with Lane, seven of the visits were listed as tours of the White House grounds, and two of the visits have no reason listed. Other potential visits included attending a holiday reception on December 2009, a reception at the Executive Office of the President (EOP) in December 2013, and attending what appeared to be the July Fourth celebrations on the South Lawn in July 2011 and 2014. The White House official associated with the July 2011 visit appears to be Ashley Williams, who has served in multiple roles in the Biden and Obama administrations.

Months later, in October 2011, Walker attended a staff dinner at Joe Biden’s vice presidential residence (VPR), according to the visitor logs. Emails from Hunter Biden’s infamous abandoned laptop show that Walker’s wife worked for the Office of the Vice President as second lady Jill Biden’s personal aide until at least 2013 based on her government email being used. First Lady Jill Biden lists Walker’s name in her 2019 book.

While many questions remain to be answered regarding Biden family business dealings, an increasingly clearer picture is emerging of a cozy relationship between individuals like Walker and the Bidens — both during and after Joe Biden’s time as Vice President — and foreign money being funneled through to Biden family members for — as yet — undisclosed reasons. This despite Joe Biden’s protestations that he knew nothing about Hunter’s business dealings.

“In the beginning, the White House denied having any knowledge or the fact that their family was involved in any sort of way, shape or form with the CCP. But now we have bank records that reveal otherwise,” Rep. Comer told host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. “We don’t know what the Bidens did in return for this money. The lawyer said that it was seed capital for a business. We haven’t been able to find a business. Right now it looks like the Biden family just pocketed this money.”

Rob Walker’s concerns that Tony Bobulinski would “bury all of us” when he came forward in the fall of 2020 to shed light on the family’s business dealings may not have been entirely correct. But the paper trail being uncovered just might.

Let the oversight continue.
