On Thursday, President Biden was confronted by reporters about ongoing allegations that he was involved in a pay-for-play bribery scandal with foreign nationals when he served as Vice President under Obama.
The looming scandal has caused a standoff between FBI Director Christopher Wray and House leadership such as Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) and House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) as the FBI has slow rolled producing the unclassified documents that outline the details of the allegations.
So far, the only detail that has been released to the public is that Biden allegedly received $5 million in exchange for undisclosed favors.
On Monday, Wray agreed to let Comer view the document in a sensitive compartment information facility, but not to release it to the entire Oversight Committee.
On Wednesday, the FBI complied with the entirety of Comer’s request after Republicans threatened to hold Wray in Contempt of Congress
When Biden was questioned about the scandal, he jokingly asked ‘Where the money’ was and called it a ‘bunch of malarkey’.
His comments came as Representative Nancy Mace (R-Sc.), who is a member of the House Oversight Committee, said that the allegations against Biden are ‘worse than has been reported so far’ after being allowed to view the FBI documents.
According to the whistleblower who made Comer aware of the documents, they are “a precise description of how the alleged criminal scheme was employed as well as its purpose”

President Biden responded to questions Thursday about his alleged involvement in an international bribery scandal with a simple joke.
“Where’s the money?” Biden quipped when asked by a reporter for his response to Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., a member of the House Oversight Committee investigating the president, who said earlier in the day the allegations are “worse than has been reported so far.”
“I’m joking. It’s a bunch of malarkey,” Biden added.
Mace, who reviewed the FD-1023 document an FBI whistleblower said proved Biden’s participation in the bribery scandal, told Fox News Digital on Thursday there is “damning evidence the sitting President of the United States sold out his country in an ongoing bribery scheme.”
