"Comer revealed Buhle was one of several Biden family members, including Hallie Biden, who received foreign money and that Hunter received over $1 million from Romania," Fox News reported.
"According to 2016 and 2017 emails reviewed by Fox News Digital from Hunter's abandoned laptop, divorce lawyers for Hunter and Buhle were aware of payments from a 'Romania deal' and discussed how it should be divided among the two parties," it added.

Former Vice President Mike Pence praised Comer for releasing the details of the Biden business deals.
"When I was vice president of the United States, my son wasn't sitting on the board of a foreign corporation," Pence told Fox News host Sean Hannity.
"I think the most jarring thing that came out in the hearing today is when Congressman Comer revealed that back in 2020, when [President] Joe Biden said repeatedly that he and their family, their companies, had never received any money from China. Now, using the subpoena power of the Congress and going to bank records, they have found out that Chinese money flowed into [an] account controlled and owned by the Biden family," he added.
The new information adds to growing concerns related to Hunter's business dealings during the years his father President Joe Biden served as vice president under then-President Barack Obama.
The details add to other concerns from Hunter's laptop that were first reported before the 2020 presidential election and first referred to as "Russian disinformation" by CIA leaders.
The new details strengthen the case against Hunter as the Oversight Committee seeks to build the evidence in its investigation.
