FOR THE BIG GUY: James Biden Says Brother Joe Got $40K in China Funds; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.01.24

According to a report from The New York Post, President Joe Biden’s brother James admitted in his impeachment interview testimony that Joe received $40K in Chinese cash.

James Biden confirmed that a $40,000 check made out to former Vice President Joe Biden in 2017 used funds James received from a Chinese government-linked company.

From The New York Post:

James, 74, insisted that he didn’t believe the company, CEFC China Energy, was controlled by Beijing — claiming that “I just misspoke” when telling the IRS in a 2022 interview that first son Hunter Biden, who was partnering with his uncle, had described CEFC chairman Ye Jianming as a “protégé” of Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“Where did you believe the source of the money that was going into [Hunter Biden’s company] Owasco, prior to being sent to you, was coming from?” an investigator asked James during the Feb. 21 interview.

“CEFC,” James conceded — following an extended back-and-forth in which the first brother’s attorney Paul Fishman tried to argue that “money’s fungible” before being reminded by a House staffer that James “did not have sufficient funds” to make the $40,000 alleged loan repayment on his own, “so it is traceable.”

The interview also established that James Biden received $840,000 over four transfers between November 2022 and July 2023 from Argentinian businessman Jose Luis Manzano, which the first brother said came from selling half of his stake in Manzano’s holding of Argentinian natural gas company Metrogas.
