Has the Biden family received a large sum of money from a Russian billionaire?
As documented in a 2020 report by the Republican staff of the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Russian billionaire Elena Baturina "wired $3.5 million" on Feb. 14, 2014 to "an investment firm co-founded by Hunter Biden," the son of Joe Biden. This $3.5 million payment was notated with the words "Consultancy Agreement DD12.02.2014." The name of Hunter Biden's company was "Rosemont Seneca Thornton," which was incorporated on May 28, 2013 in Wilmington, Delaware while Joe Biden was VP of the United States. Baturina, who became a billionaire when she "received a series of Moscow municipal contracts while her husband was mayor" of Moscow, then sent another "11 wires in the amount of $391,968.21" to "a Rosemont Seneca Thornton bank account, which then transferred the money" to a "startup technology company headquartered in Buffalo, N.Y., that produced tablet computers in cooperation with unnamed Chinese business partners."
