The Department of Justice in 2019 subpoenaed records related to Hunter Biden and two of his business partners' deals in China, the New York Post reports.

The order sent to JP Morgan Chase bank requested records of any international financial transactions involving Hunter, his uncle James Biden and former business associates Eric Schwerin and Devon Archer over the prior five years.

The filing, which targets financial ties between the four men and the Bank of China, was obtained by Marco Polo, an anti-corruption nonprofit established by former Trump administration official Garrett Ziegler.

The subpoena was issued in May 2019 by Delaware’s U.S. Attorney Davis Weiss. Hunter’s father, Joe Biden, was a presidential candidate at the time.

A spokesperson for Hunter could not be reached for comment, the Post adds.
