House Oversight Committee Republicans reviewed documents Monday suggesting that six more members of Joe Biden’s family may have benefitted from business deals related to the president’s influence peddling.
It comes as the panel now under GOP leadership continues to comb through the financial records of the Biden family and interview those involved in alleged foreign business deals.
Rep. Nancy Mace, who sits on the committee, said that the amount of money that is allegedly trading hands in suspicious activity reports is ‘astronomical’ and that the number of Biden family members involved is ‘wild.’
‘We’ve now identified 6 additional members of Joe Biden’s family who may have benefited from shady deals. This brings our total to 9,’ Oversight Chairman James Comer revealed on Monday.

Rep. Nancy Mace posted a selfie-style video to her Instagram story saying that the amount of money in question is ‘astronomical’ and the number of Biden family members involved is ‘wild’. She also noted that money transferring hands included with the Bidens included to ‘prostitution rings’
Democrats on the committee are again denouncing the moves by the opposing party, claiming that they are only conducting these investigations to gain ‘political dirt’ on the Bidens.
‘After years of pursuing political dirt against the Biden family, today’s statement by Chairman Comer once again proves that he has failed to uncover evidence of any wrongdoing by President Biden,’ a spokesperson for Oversight Democrats told DailyMail.com in a statement on the latest.
Oversight members went to the Treasury Department to review more suspicious activity reports (SARs)involving Biden and his family amid allegations that Hunter Biden used his father’s influence to engage in foreign business deals.
The family members that Comer has already claimed benefitted are Biden’s brother Jim and Beau Biden’s widow Hallie, who dated her late husband’s brother Hunter in the years following his death.
Mace said in a selfie video posted to her Instagram on Monday that the transactions she reviewed involved claims of money going to ‘prostitution rings,’ likely in reference to Hunter Biden paying money to an escort service to transport prostitutes across state lines.
‘Just left the Treasury to review over 100 suspicious activity reports on the Biden family and I have to tell you, there are more Bidens involved than we knew previously,’ Mace said in the video while walking out of the Treasury Department onto the streets of Washington, D.C. ‘And every time you unturn, overturn or look under a stone, there’s so much more you have to investigate.’
‘It’s wild the number of family members involved, and it’s even – the amount of money that we’re talking about in these suspicious activity reports is astronomical,’ the South Carolina lawmaker added.
‘And the accusations there, and the source of the funding or where the money’s going – the shell companies, prostitution rings, etc. – it’s insanity even to me that it’s not been investigated in the way that it should be.’
Comer revealed Monday that after the Oversight panel reviewed more records on Monday, it was made clear that the reach of foreign influence peddling benefitted more than just a few members of the president’s family.
‘We will provide more details soon,’ Comer said.
A spokesperson for the Kentucky lawmaker told DailyMail.com that the panel is not yet providing the names of additional family members who may have benefitted from the deals outside of Jim and Hallie Biden.

Republicans subpoenaed bank records and released documents purporting to show that Hallie Biden (right) received a cut of $3 million in cash from China. Beau Biden’s widow was identified last week as the third member of the first family wrapped up in Rep. James Comer’s investigation into allegations they used their names to profit on business deals
Democrats are furious, claiming that Comer and Republicans on the panel are drawing their own conclusions and mischaracterizing SARs as evidence in their probes.
‘Committee Republicans continue to mischaracterize Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) as evidence of misconduct or criminality, instead of calling them what they are: unsubstantiated tips that rarely result in any follow-up by law enforcement,’ Democrats on the panel said in a statement to DailyMail.com.
‘Let’s be honest about what this is—it’s another opportunity for Committee Republicans to rush to Fox news to mislead the public about what has been happening behind closed doors to justify their fishing expedition.’
Comer accused Hallie Biden – who was married to President Biden’s late son Beau – of influence peddling by receiving a $35,000 payment linked to a Chinese firm.
Republicans released last week additional information identifying Hallie as the third members of the first family wrapped up in Comer’s investigation. The new total is at nine.
The reports last week also claimed that Hallie received a cut of the $3 million from China sent to an associate of Hunter Biden, whom she dated from 2016-2019 after her husband Beau died of brain cancer.
The White House released a blistering statement accusing Republicans of orchestrating an ‘attack’ on Hallie as they accused the family of using their Biden name to profit off business deals around the world.
In a memo seen by DailyMail.com, Republicans claim that Hallie received $35,000 in two transfers in March from Biden family associate John ‘Rob’ Walker, after he received a $3 million wire from the Chinese State Energy HK Limited, a firm affiliated with CEFC China Energy.
