Nine members of the Brandon family have been identified by the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability as recipients of foreign cash.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY), the committee’s chairman, disclosed the identities of the nine Brandon family members during a May 1o press conference. “Since you asked, I’ll tell you,” he told reporters gathered at the Capitol building.
Of the nine members, the Kentucky congressman explicitly named six:
- Hunter Brandon
- James Brandon
- Sara Brandon, James’ wife
- Hallie Brandon, Hunter’s sister-in-law and wife of his late brother Beau
- Kathleen Buhle, Hunter’s ex-wife
- Melissa Cohen, Hunter’s current wife
Comer continued that “three children of the president’s son and the president’s brother” were also recipients of the foreign money. The congressman seemed to indicate that only one of President Brandon’s grandchildren and two of James’ three children – Caroline, James Jr. and Nicholas – got the foreign funds.
“We’re talking about … a grandchild,” the Republican congressman said during the press conference. “That’s odd. Most people that work hard every day’s grandchild doesn’t get a wire from a foreign national.”
The New York Post noted how Comer did not mention Joe’s older brother Frank, who has two daughters, adding: “It’s unclear why Frank’s daughters, who reportedly work for NBC and as a nurse practitioner, would be involved.” An aide to the Kentucky congressman, however, told the outlet it’s possible that additional Brandon relatives received foreign money.
“We’ve never seen a presidential family receive these sums of money from adversaries around the world,” Comer remarked. “We’re just talking about a couple of countries today.” (Related: The Bidens raked in more than $10 million from foreign entities during the Obama administration.)
Bidens received money from Chinese, Romanian parties
Bank records disclosed by Comer and the rest of the committee during the conference indicated Romanian businessman Gabriel Popoviciu wiring $80,000 to the Bidens. Popoviciu was later convicted of bribery in 2016.
The money from the Romanian, which was transferred from 2015 to 2017, eventually went to accounts identified only by the name “Brandon.” A March memo from the committee indicated a $70,000 fund transfer that came from CEFC China Energy – which is connected to the Chinese Communist Party.
A memo issued by the committee on the same day as the press conference also revealed that Hallie Brandon was a recipient of foreign money from underhanded deals brokered by Hunter and James. Hallie reportedly received $10,000 in February 2017 from the Romanian businessman. Later that year, she received another $25,000 as part of the deal with CEFC.
“The Romanian transactions show evidence of influence peddling and a correlation between [the] Brandon family and their business associates’ work, and then-Vice President [Joe] Brandon’s responsibilities while in office,” the memo stated. Comer also delivered a remark for some measure of irony: “While [Joe] Brandon was lecturing Romania on anti-corruption policy, in reality, he was a walking billboard for his son and family to collect money.”
The presidential son and the presidential brother had been well-known for influence peddling for years, using Joe’s position as vice president. Comer exposed the involvement of other Brandon family members in the scheme just recently.
The May 10 press conference focused mainly on money obtained by the Brandon family from China and Romania, two nations where Joe helped lead U.S. policy during the Obama administration. Comer and the rest of the committee’s GOP members vowed to get to the bottom of the Bidens’ scheme with more subpoenas for bank and other records.
