Joe Biden received $40K in ‘laundered China money’ from brother in 2017, Comer says

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said President Biden, in 2017, received $40,000 in “laundered China money” from the bank account of his brother and his sister-in-law in the form of a personal check, while claiming the president has “exposed himself to future blackmail” from Beijing.

Comer, R-Ky., detailed his findings in a video posted to X Wednesday morning. The findings come after Comer subpoenaed personal and business bank records belonging to both James Biden and Hunter Biden as part of his investigation into the Biden family’s business dealings and whether the president was involved.

“Remember when Joe Biden told the American people that his son didn’t make money in China? Well, not only did he lie about his son Hunter making money in China, but it also turns out that $40,000 in laundered China money landed in Joe Biden’s bank account in the form of a personal check,” Comer said. “And the Oversight Committee has it.” 

Comer said Biden “benefited from his family’s shady deal” with Chinese Communist Party-linked CEFC.

The White House said the committee found that as a private citizen, the president loaned his brother his own money when his brother needed it, and after reviewing bank records, there is a record that he was repaid.
