    President Biden denied that his family received more than $1 million in payments from accounts related to Hunter Biden’s business associate Rob Walker and their Chinese business ventures in 2017, even though
    financial records indicate otherwise.

    On Thursday, GOP lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee revealed
    that they had obtained bank documents showing that Hunter Biden, the president's brother Jim, and Hallie Biden, the widow of his son Beau,
    received payments from Hunter's business associate Rob Walker and their
    joint venture with Chinese energy firm CEFC. A spokesperson for Hunter
    Biden's legal team confirmed the payments Thursday but emphasized that
    the recipients' accounts "belonged to Hunter, his uncle and Hallie –
    nobody else."

    However, Biden denied that the payments were made when confronted by a
    reporter on the White House lawn Friday.

    "That's not true," the president said, when asked about the GOP
    lawmakers' findings.

    Financial records that Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., subpoenaed from Bank of America say otherwise.
