    The Facts

    • In a statement made on Tuesday, Republican Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) claimed that bank wires obtained via a subpoena show Hunter Biden receiving payments from Beijing which listed President Joe Biden's Delaware home as the recipient's address.

    • The statement, issued on behalf of the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, claims that $260K was sent from Chinese business partners in Beijing to Hunter Biden in 2019.

    The Spin

    Left narrative

    While the entirety of Congress should be focused on the looming threat of a government shutdown, House Republicans have made up another Hunter Biden scandal. The half-baked conspiracies against the Biden family unsurprisingly fall flat on their face once again. Republicans once again wish to mislead the public with a fantasy agenda, rather than dealing with genuine looming policy concerns.

    Right narrative

    There's now no question that Joe Biden lied to the American people when claiming that he lacked any knowledge of his son's foreign business dealings. The records now show that the Biden family indeed used political office for financial advancement. These are serious allegations with gravity — the GOP must press ahead with its investigation of Hunter Biden.

    Nerd narrative

    There is a 25% chance that Joe Biden will be impeached by the US House of Representatives, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
