    The White House dismissed a request by House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) seeking proof of President Joe Biden providing a loan to his brother James Biden amid concerns that the commander-in-chief may have profited off his family's influence-peddling schemes.

    Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president, wrote back to Comer on Friday in response to a letter from October 26 that sought documentation underlying a $200,000 check James Biden wrote to Joe Biden that was labeled as a "loan repayment" in 2018.

    The letter "concerns a financial transaction between two family members at a time when both individuals were private citizens," Sauber stated curtly in his reply, which was first reported by the Washington Examiner on Monday and later obtained by The Daily Wire.

    Comer, who is leading a corruption-focused impeachment inquiry against Biden, is trying to get more information about a $200,000 check dated March 1, 2018, which he said bank records show James Biden issued from his personal account on the same day he received the same amount of money from Americore Health LLC.

    That company, according to Comer, was going through bankruptcy proceedings to which James Biden made "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 insisted his committee has no records supporting the claim that Joe Biden provided a loan to his brother and the chairman requested "documentation clarifying the nature of this payment and whether all applicable documentation and IRS filings were properly made."

    Sauber disputed the assertion that there were no relevant documents in the panel's possession as "incorrect," pointing to a letter House Oversight ranking member Jamie Raskin (D-MD) wrote to Comer, and concludes by saying Comer's "letter makes other statements that I will not address here except to express my strong disagreement with your factual assertions and characterizations."

    Raskin said the panel has documents that "clearly show that President Biden had $200,000 wired to his brother on January 12, 2018." A "fact sheet" from House Oversight Democrats says bank records obtained via subpoena "show that in 2017 and 2018, while President Biden was not in office, he provided two short-term loans to his brother, James, who repaid each loan within two months."

    But a GOP congressional aide told The Daily Wire that "contrary to the White House's and Ranking Member Raskin's claims, nothing within the Oversight Committee's possession clearly shows that Joe Biden did indeed loan his brother large sums of money. The White House and Democrats have peddled a false narrative instead of providing the loan documents."

    Another payment that has attracted scrutiny is a $40,000 check from James Biden's wife, Sarah, sent to Joe Biden that was also labeled as a loan repayment. Comer suspects that the money came from a Chinese enterprise. The foreign business dealings of President Biden's son, Hunter, are also a significant area of inquiry for House GOP investigators.

    "The White House today made clear to us that President Biden is refusing to hand over loan documents for any 'loans' he provided to his brother, James Biden," the House Oversight Committee said in response to Sauber's letter on Friday.

    "We've exposed nearly a quarter of a million of dollars that James Biden sent to Joe Biden as 'loan repayments' that were funded by laundered China money and influence peddling schemes," the panel added. "Is this what 'the most transparent administration in history' is supposed to look like? We won't be stopped by the President's stonewalling. We'll continue to follow the money, expose President Biden's corruption, and deliver accountability."

After nearly 8 months of the United States House of Representatives' Oversight Committee hearings, House Speaker Mike Johnson is pursuing an Impeachment Inquiry into the strong allegations of Bribery, Influence Peddling, Money laundering and possible Treason regarding the Biden Family Shell Corporations' business dealings with foreign nations that are adversarial to our survival: Is it prudent and wise for the Republican controlled U.S. House to investigate this Democratic Socialist President?
  No, Democratics should never be investigated because they are so superior to their Republican counterparts, and care so much more.
  Yes, in a Constitutional Republic, bound by the Rule of Law, no one is above the law, and that law must be applied evenly.
  Not sure ... Now, what got all this started?

Now that the public is allowed to know the truth regarding the Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal, after more that 2 1/2 years of deception by the corrupt Corporate Media Kabal, propropagandidats all, and the discredited Deep State, we have NOW learned that the infamous laptop is far less about the Biden Boy's fetish for pornography, narcotics and Russian whores, and far more about Hunter's pivotal role in the Biden Crime Syndicate's selling of deep access to our foreign adversaries, and to what extent it has compromised our national security: What is your opinion about this possible coordinated Treason?
  It is imperative that we know the truth of what may be the greatest scandal in our Republic's history, and all aforementioned parties prosecuted for their crimes against the People.
  Currently, our Two Tiered Justice System is constructed to protect all Democratic Socialists, their corrupt "Journalist" spokes-sheople, and their Deep State enablers ... so why bother.
  It is Donald Trump's fault.
  How can we be assured that the "Laptop" is real? Would NOT our standard journalists have investigated this issue thoroughly nearly 3 years ago if it was real?

Considering that the 2024 Presidential Election has fully begun, and the Biden Administration has consequently fully weaponized the Biden DOJ /FBI to attack all political opponents under the penalty of felonious judgement for many of the same alleged crimes, or worse, committed by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden himself: Are you comfortable with this level of overt corruption within the Executive Branch?
  Yes; if Democratic Socialists are to complete the remaking of this "Democracy," the End will Always Justify the Means.
  No; in a Constitutional Republic, the Rule of Law is paramount, which means the law MUST be administered evenly
  Who cares; I am just so ambivalent to all this grown-up stuff.
