The Biden White House has declined to back up claims that internal family money transfers were little more than loan paybacks, the Washington Examiner has reported.
Within the last month, the Oversight Committee revealed that they had found two sizeable checks that totaled $240,000 that had allegedly been transferred into Joe Biden’s bank account, via his brother, James Biden, between 2017 and 2018.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., explained on X last week, “These Biden Bribery Bucks originated in the Middle East and China and were passed to Biden family members for their name. No office holder should engage in selling out their office to foreign countries for cash.”
The Washington Examiner’s report revealed that White House Special Counsel Richard Sauber wrote a letter to the House Oversight Committee, dodging questions asked by Oversight Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., regarding documentation that would explain the checks’ purposes.
The current lack of evidence to support the claim that the money was indeed loan repayments has raised questions among Republicans on whether those checks were linked to the allegedly murky foreign business dealings that have come to light over the past year in the House.
As reported by RSBN, one of the checks uncovered by the Oversight Committee reportedly totaled $40,000 and was “laundered China money from the account of his [Joe Biden’s] brother, James Biden, and his sister-in-law Sara Biden, in the form of a personal check.”
Per the Washington Examiner, James Biden allegedly wrote another $200,000 check in 2018 “just hours after a healthcare company James Biden worked for wired him the same amount.”
New Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, R-La., has remained steadfast in his support of House Republicans’ ongoing investigation into the Biden family, stating that they were “following the truth where it leads and they have my full support as they continue the impeachment inquiry into President Biden.”
