Republicans and political experts slammed President Joe Biden for accepting a $200,000 check in 2018 from his brother, James Biden, after claiming he was not involved in his family’s business.

For years, Joe Biden denied any involvement in the business at least nine times. “Where is the money? Joe Biden asked reporters in September. House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) believes he found some.

“A document that we’re releasing today raises new questions about how President Biden personally benefited from his family’s shady influence peddling of his name and their access to him,” Comer said Friday. “Bank records obtained by the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability have revealed a $200,000 direct payment from James and Sara Biden to Joe Biden in the form of a personal check.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a member of the Oversight Committee, exclusively told Breitbart News the $200,000 proved Joe Biden was a “proven liar.” The check, she argued, was apart of an “elaborate” Biden family business scheme to launder money, an allegation Comer asserted multiple times in the past. “This means Joe Biden is a proven liar,” she said. “This also means Joe Biden is a criminal and should face criminal charges and should go to jail.”

“The money laundering scheme is the same type of money laundering scheme that many people have been put in jail for. What you do is you basically buy a company that’s going bankrupt, or invest in a company that’s going bankrupt, to save the company, and then you run money through it — through criminal enterprises,” she told Breitbart News.

“In this case that was selling out Joe Biden’s power and influence, and they received, — it’s going to be hundreds of millions of dollars — it’s going to be a lot of money.”

Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) echoed Greene’s statement and demanded Joe Biden be held accountable. “No one should get away with this— especially a President,” he posted on X.
“Joe Biden’s brother paid back a loan Joe had made him in a lump sum of $200,000,” Mike Cernovich posted on X. “Easy for Biden to explain this away. Post the records of when the loan originated. There would be a check or wire.”

 “The money trail of the Biden Family corruption scheme leads directly to Joe himself. There’s no denying it now,” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) said.

“At a minimum, the payments show that Joe Biden was aware that his brothers and his son were in dire need of funds throughout these years,” Jonathan Turley wrote in the Hill.

Comer believes the $200,000 payment is shady because the money centers around a distressed entity that loaned James Biden $600,000. In turn, James Biden cut Joe Biden a $200,000 check. Comer, a former bank board member of a local bank, said Friday he has no evidence of the loan agreement between the two brothers, which would show Joe Biden agreed to pay James Biden back.

James Biden contends that Comer has bank documents that show Joe Biden lent James Biden money in January 2018, six weeks before James Biden cut Joe Biden a check for $200,000. He also denied the financial arrangement was a business relationship.

“The Committee has the bank documents that show both the loan Jim received from his brother in January 2018 and the repayment by check six weeks later,” James Biden’s attorney, Paul Fishman, told the Wall Street Journal. “At no time did Jim involve his brother in any of his business relationships.”
