The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability released a "Bidens’ Influence Peddling Timeline" on Tuesday, outlining key dates found in their investigation into the foreign dealings of the Biden family.
The timeline begins in 2009, noting the beginning of the Obama administration, and continues through 2023, focusing on dealings in Romania, China, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.
The timeline notes that on November 1, 2013, when Hunter Biden, business associates, and Chinese investors agreed to create Bohai Harvest RST Equity Investment Fund Management Co., Ltd. On December 4, 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden traveled with his son Hunter to China to meet with the CEO of Harvest, Jonathan Li.
"Shortly thereafter, BHR’s business license was approved and Hunter Biden was a board member," the committee’s timeline notes.
In regards to Kazakhstan, the timeline notes a meeting between Hunter Biden and Kazakhstani businessman Kenes Rakishev in a DC hotel on February 5, 2014. On April 22 of that year, the businessman’s Singaporean company wired $142,300 through his Latvian company to an entity owned by Rosemont, of which Hunter Biden co-founded. The next day, this amount was wired to a car dealership for a new sports car for Hunter Biden.
In December of 2014, The businessman’s oil company joined with Burisma, of which Hunter Biden sat on the board of, and a CCP-linked company to "announce a transnational financial arrangement," the timeline states.
In 2018, the US Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network issued a notice accusing the Lativan company owned by Rakishev of money laundering.

Later that year, on November 2, 2015, Pozharskyi suggested that high level US officials come to Uklraine to talk with Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin and President Petro Poroshenko about the investigation into Burisma owner Mykola Zlochevsky and the company itself.
Later that year, Joe Biden traveled to Ukraine, and on December 7, 2015, demanded that Prosecutor General Shokin be fired if Ukraine wants $1 billion in International Monetary Fund loans. This came less than a month after high-level US government official Amos Hochstein met with Joe Biden in the West Wing after he met with Hunter Biden to discuss Burisma.
On February 4, 2016, the timeline notes that Burisma owner Mykola Zlochevsky gave "Hunter Biden unspecified, extravagant birthday gifts."
