Since taking office, President Joe Biden has insisted that he has never had any involvement in, or intimate knowledge of, his family's business dealings.
However, it seems that in increasing frequency, evidence to the contrary pops up on what feels like a weekly basis, including the latest bombshell announcement from the House Oversight Committee regarding an interesting check.
According to The Hill, Chairman James Comer (R-KY) revealed the existence of a check, cut in 2018, that was sent from James and Sara Biden, made out to Joe Biden to the tune of $200,000.
The memo section of the check read, "loan repayment."
Comer, who has led the charge in investigating the Biden family's various business ventures, many of which appear to be beyond shady, is now very interested in finding out more about the "financial arrangements" the president has with members of his family.
Joe asked us where the money was? Well, we found it.

"Bank records obtained by the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability have revealed a $200,000 direct payment from James and Sara Biden to Joe Biden in the form of a personal check," Comer said in an X video post.
Fox News noted:
Comer explains that in 2018, James Biden "received $600,000 in loans from Americore —a financially distressed and failing rural hospital operator."
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.
"Americore—a distressed company—loaned money to James Biden who then sent it to Joe Biden," Comer added.
Many, including legal scholar Jonathan Turley, pointed out that even if the "loan repayment" was legit, it raises questions as to why Joe Biden made the loan in the first place, and when. Was it during his vice presidency?
"Even if Joe Biden did loan almost a quarter of a million dollars to his brother, it would raise concerns over whether this disbursement came while he was vice president. The payments could have given Joe Biden an interest in not just the influence peddling of his brother but also the viability of this company," Turley wrote in a piece for The Hill.
Comer had similar questions.
"Did he have similar financial arrangements with other family members that led them to make similar large payments to him?" Comer asked.
