The White House’s defense of the $200,000 payment Joe Biden received from his brother James Biden is not supported by the House Oversight Committee’s bank records.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter to White House Counsel Edward Siskel requesting financial documents to support the White House’s claim that James Biden was using the $200,000 check to repay a loan from Joe Biden.
Comer stated in the letter that the bank records do not indicate that Joe Biden gave his brother a sizable loan that required repayment.
“The White House has claimed Joe Biden loaned James Biden $200,000, and this check was repayment. Records obtained by the Committee do show numerous large incoming transactions into the personal account of James and Sara Biden from various entities. Some of these transaction records may have obscured the identity of the true payer, but no records in the Committee’s possession state that Joe Biden made a large loan payment to his brother,” Comer’s letter said.
Friday, Ian Sams, a spokesperson for the White House, stated on Twitter that James Biden’s $200,000 payment was a loan repayment. An image of
