The decade's most triggering comedy
“President Biden has repeatedly denied knowing anything about his family’s business dealings despite evidence to the contrary,” the GOP-led House Oversight Committee said in a tweet.
“Our timeline contains important dates as to when Joe Biden knew and lied to the American people about his family’s business schemes,” the panel added.
The timeline, posted to the panel’s website, stretches back to 2009, covering years when Biden served as vice president, and extends all the way up to this summer. It shows points of interest concerning millions of dollars of financial dealings tied to people and entities from Romania, China, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. The president’s son Hunter Biden, who is under investigation by federal prosecutors, is featured prominently throughout.
The House Oversight Committee “has accelerated its investigation of the Biden family’s domestic and international business practices to determine whether the Biden family has been targeted by foreign actors, President Biden is compromised, and our national security is threatened,” the page says.
Democrats in Congress have dismissed the House Oversight Committee’s probe as a politically motivated endeavor to tar President Biden ahead of the 2024 election. The elder Biden himself has called the corruption allegations “a bunch of malarkey.”
In a tweet responding to the panel’s new timeline, White House spokesman Ian Sams shared the “Pepe Silvia” meme and said, “It’s this, but if done with crayons and construction paper.”

GOP members have pursued information on the Biden family’s financial arrangements on a number of fronts, including with suspicious activity reports (SARs), which financial institutions can use to flag possible criminal behavior.
Chairman James Comer (R-KY), who has also issued subpoenas for bank records and witness testimony, says anywhere between nine to 12 members of the Biden family may be tied to shady business dealings uncovered by his panel.
In a recent interview on “Fox Across America With Jimmy Failla,” Comer explained the challenges he faces in trying to share with the public what his team has uncovered in a clear and concise manner.
“It’s very difficult,” Comer said. “I’ve had advisers say, ‘It’s very complicated when you talk about the 20 shell companies and all the different bank accounts.’ Well, of course! That’s the way they wanted it.”
