The Republican members of the House were outraged after they learned that Hunter Biden, who is the son of the vice president, had reportedly paid the president's bills for over a decade. According to them, Biden profited from the corruption of his son's business ventures abroad, and the messages have raised questions about the president's involvement.
In a 2018 text message with his assistant, Hunter revealed that his Wells Fargo bank account had been temporarily shut down. He then told her to transfer the money to his debit card and credit line. According to Hunter, most of the accounts had been used by his father, who had been paying for them through the help of Eric Schwerin.
Elise Stefanik, a Republican from the House, stated that the messages sent by the vice president's son showed how foreign leaders were able to compromise the Biden family. She referred to it as corruption, and noted that the son of Biden was able to profit from his business ventures while the former's credit card debts were being paid. She claimed that there was no doubt that Biden was compromised.

Republicans stated that the messages revealed that Biden is a political compromised individual who has prioritized money over country. Clay Higgins, a representative from the House, noted that the members of the Oversight Committee were revealing the truth about Biden's corruption, and those close to him will surely be held accountable. Paul Gosar, another Republican representative, also claimed that the former's schemes involving money laundering could lead to impeachment.
Schwerin, who has been Hunter's business partner for many years, revealed in an email that funds from the former's tax refund had been transferred to his son's account. In a 2019 text message, Hunter revealed that he had been forced by his father to give back a portion of his salary. He said that he hoped that his siblings would be able to support themselves financially as he had been doing for the past three decades.
House Republicans stated that the messages revealed a grim picture of Biden, who is a heavily compromised politician. The findings of the Oversight Committee showed that he has a deep-seated corruption, and it threatens those who are associated with him. Some of them even believe that his money-laundering methods could lead to his impeachment. The messages show that Biden has been able to profit from the corruption of his business ventures, and it has jeopardized the national interests of the country.
