House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer demanded the White House “correct” a “misleading and dishonest” statement by President Biden regarding more than $1 million his relatives received from a Chinese company.

Biden says it’s “not true” that his son Hunter, brother James, and daughter-in-law Hallie received millions of dollars from a bank account belonging to Hunter Biden business associate Rob Walker, who received the money from China.

Fox News reports that Comer has sent a letter to the White House regarding Joe Biden’s denial.

But Comer, R-Ky., is calling on the White House to correct the record by March 27, and says bank records show the payments happened and that Hunter Biden's legal team has confirmed them.

"The Committee is concerned about the national security implications of a President's or Vice President's immediate family receiving such lucrative financial deals form foreign nationals and foreign companies without any oversight," Comer wrote in a letter to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Tuesday, exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital.

"President Biden’s statement was misleading and dishonest," Comer said, noting that the committee "received the bank documents from a financial institution pursuant to a subpoena."

There’s more than just bank records proving the Biden family payments according to Comer, there are statements from Hunter’s legal team as well.

Fox News notes a spokesperson for Hunter Biden’s legal team discussing Hunter’s Chinese business dealings has stated:

"As part of that joint venture, Hunter received his portion of good faith seed funds which he shared with his uncle, James Biden, and Hallie Biden, with whom he was involved with at the time, and sharing expenses," the spokesperson said.

We’ll have to wait to see if the White House responds by March 27 – and we'll wait to see if any official statement will be in English..or Chinese.
