U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) responded to a House Oversight Committee memo on Wednesday that accused Hunter Biden of receiving millions from oligarchs in Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan.

The committee subpoenaed six banks and obtained thousands of records pertaining to the Biden family and their business associates. 

The memo cites records showing the Russian, Ukrainian and Kazakhstani oligarchs paid millions to Hunter Biden, his Rosemont Seneca entities and Devon Archer, one of Hunter Biden’s business partners. 

Some of the payments were for work services, but the purposes of all the payments are unclear. The memo even accused Hunter Biden of receiving the “exact price of [his] sportscar” from Kazakhstani oligarch Mykola Zlochevsky in April 2014. 

It also accused President Joe Biden of lying about his family’s business deals. 

“The Committee has revealed millions of dollars have come into the Biden family’s bank accounts from foreign sources, including China, Romania, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine,” the memo read. “Independent whistleblowers’ sworn testimony from the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden has corroborated the Committee’s financial investigation. Testimony from Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Devon Archer, also supports the Committee’s findings. No one in the Biden Administration or in the Minority has explained what services, if any, the Bidens and their associates provided in exchange for the over $20 million in foreign payments.”

Democrats have argued that Republicans have not produced direct evidence proving that Joe Biden has received any foreign contributions. Nevertheless, the memo suggested there is no need to show any direct payments to the president to demonstrate corruption.

“The Biden family received more than $20 million from oligarchs in Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan while he was VP,” Moore tweeted on Wednesday. “Biden dined with these oligarchs and spoke with them on the phone 20 separate times.”

“The indictments are just a distraction from the real story,” he continued, referring to former President Donald Trump’s recent indictments, the most recent of which was on charges of challenging the 2020 election results. 

Currently, some House Republicans have suggested the possibility of an impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden, though others are hesitant. Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said in July that findings about the Biden family’s foreign business activities are rising “to the level of an impeachment inquiry.”
