Senator Chuck Grassley confirmed this week that his committee’s investigation into Hunter Biden now includes the brother of the President, Jim Biden.
“We have people with the Biden name dealing with Chinese business people that have a relationship to the Communist Party [and] I think James Biden was very much a part of this,” Grassley told CBS News in an interview Wednesday.

Sen. Chuck Grassley says President Biden’s brother James “Jim” Biden is a prime focus of investigators reviewing first son Hunter Biden’s foreign business deals.
Grassley (R-Iowa) co-authored a September 2020 reportwith Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) on the Biden family’s business pursuits. The two senators released a supplemental report that November and recently took to the Senate floor to reveal banking records detailing Jim Biden’s role in Chinese-linked business ventures.
The documents unveiled by Johnson and Grassley revealed that Hunter Biden and Jim Biden received monthly payments of $100,000 and $65,000, respectively, as part of an August 2017 consulting agreement between the now-first son and Gongwen Dong, a top official at CEFC China Energy.
