The hits keep coming and they don’t stop coming.

In the latest chapter of Biden Family Corruption: A Memoir, the House Oversight Committee is now asking probing questions into a sketchy check President Joe Biden got back in 2018 from his brother, James, which appears on its face to be connected to yet another influence peddling scheme by the president’s family.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said this week that the committee has uncovered evidence of a $200,000 check Biden received from his brother for a “personal loan repayment” back in 2018, two years after Biden had left office as vice president.

Comer says James Biden and his wife, Sara, had on the very same day received $200,000 from a company called Americore, a financially floundering rural hospital operating company. (James and Sara Biden ultimately received a total of $600,000 in loans from the company.)

"According to bankruptcy court documents, James Biden received these loans based upon representations that his last name Biden, could open doors; and that he could obtain a large investment from the Middle East based on his political connections," Comer said Friday.

According to the committee’s findings, Americore wired $200,000 to James and Sara Biden’s personal bank account on March 1, 2018. That very same day, James wrote a $200,000 check to his brother, Joe, from the same bank account, for what was listed in the memo line at the time as a “loan repayment.”

Now, Comer is questioning the suspicious timing, demanding that President Biden provide proof that he had, in fact, loaned his brother $200,000 and that the check truly was reimbursement.

Comer added that even if it was, “it’s still troubling that Joe Biden’s ability to be paid back by his brother depended on the success of his family’s shady financial dealings.”

If the money does indicate an attempt at influence peddling, it wasn't a very good one. Americore ultimately filed for bankruptcy on Dec. 31, 2019.
