"Based on the evidence I've seen so far, I think the number is going to be north of $50 million that we're talking about here," Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) said on Fox Business's "Mornings with Maria" last week.
In the course of their probes, the House Oversight Committee discovered several tranches of the family's business bank records, which exposed that the Biden crime family earned at least $20 million from business schemes in Romania, China, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. In total, nine members of the first family accepted payments from their international business ventures, including two of Biden's grandchildren. "This will go down as one of the most politically corrupt presidents and families in U.S. history," Mace said back in July. "And we've got to show and prove it to the American people. We've got to show them everything that we have."
Other lawmakers on the committee also stated that up to $100 million came through the then-second family, as Joe's controversial son, Hunter Biden, and his foreign business dealings are currently at the center of a criminal probe.

Apart from bank records, the committee also looked into tax records, text messages, and emails implicating Biden in his son's suspicious, overseas affairs. Whistleblowers from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) also recently testified that federal prosecutors stonewalled the investigation into the Bidens' business dealings. "It's enormous," Mace added and for her, it is mind-boggling that the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the IRS have done "absolutely nothing" when they've seen that kind of money flowing through dozens and dozens of shell companies. "The bribes, the payoffs, the money laundering, the racketeering, everything that's been going on, and no one in that family has been held accountable. And it's wrong," she continued.
The Republican emphasized that the president "should be getting nervous right now" as evidence starts "adding up."
House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) agreed with Mace's $50 million prediction during an appearance on Fox News's Sean Hannity's show.
"Do you believe that number is realistic and right?" Hannity asked. "I do think it's realistic," Comer replied, noting the committee has yet to uncover personal bank records of Joe's brother, Jim Biden, who secretly negotiated a $140 million settlement deal in 2012 between a U.S. company and the Saudi Arabian government. He used his relationship with then-Vice President Biden, court documents indicated.
Comer believes that the subpoena for Jim Biden's personal bank records will be the first crack at Hunter's uncle. "Remember, Jim Biden didn't leave a laptop lying around, so it's not been as easy to track his transactions," he pointed out saying he intends to subpoena Hunter and Jim for personal and business bank records as soon as this week, Breitbart News reported.
According to the independent news outlet, Comer did not issue subpoenas sooner because the committee insisted on practicing restraint to "show good faith." However, he stood firm in his argument that Joe Biden was very involved in this and that he knew what the family was doing. "We believe that this was a very organized crime ring because of the way the money was disbursed through [limited liability companies] LLCs and the shell companies and the way the money was disbursed through the various Biden members," Comer further told Hannity.
Back in February, Hunter denied the committee's request for bank documents and communications. According to him, the demands lacked a "legitimate legislative and oversight basis" to request relevant information.
Meanwhile, Biden's supporters, such as most Democrats as well as mainstream media outlets, continue to deny that the older Biden was ever involved in his family's "organized crime syndicate" and there is "no evidence" to support an impeachment inquiry into the president. "I can tell you that Hunter did not share his business with his dad," Hunter's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, told CNN. "I can tell you that he did not share money from his businesses with his dad. And as to the evidence out there, his dad, like all good parents, tried to help Hunter when Hunter needed that help."
The statement by Lowell, a newer member of the Hunter Biden defense team, is a dramatic narrative shift in the Biden world. Joe Biden and his staff previously claimed he "never discussed" business with Hunter Biden and that he "was not in business with his son."
