Biden Warned By GOP After He Cracks Jokes About Alleged Bribery Scandal: 'Accountability Is Coming'

President Joe Biden was excoriated on social media Thursday when he cracked a joke about an ongoing congressional inquiry into allegations he took millions in bribes from a foreign entity.

Biden has faced scrutiny regarding alleged actions that occurred during his time as vice president under Barack Obama after members of the House Oversight Committee were contacted by a whistleblower who claimed that the FBI possessed a document in 2020 suggesting Biden’s involvement in a $5 million criminal bribery scheme with a foreign national.

The alleged bribery was purportedly intended to secure influence over policy decisions, reports have said.

During a press interaction on Thursday, Biden was asked by a reporter to respond to a statement from Rep. Nancy Mace (R-N.C.) a member of the House Oversight Committee, who told Fox News Digital earlier that day there exists “damning evidence” indicating the current president engaged in the alleged bribery scheme, thereby betraying the nation.

Biden responded by asking, “Where’s the money?” before saying, “I’m joking. It’s a bunch of malarkey.”

After reviewing the FD-1023 document, in which an FBI whistleblower provided evidence of Biden’s involvement in the alleged bribery scheme, Mace claimed the evidence is “worse than has been reported so far.”

Several Republicans were outraged at Biden’s casual dismissal of the charge.

“It’s easy to be this flippant towards serious corruption allegations when you know your team of left-wing partisans will protect you at both the Department of Justice and in the corporate media,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted.

“Evidence of treason is hilarious, according to Joe Biden,” conservative journalist Kyle Becker tweeted. “That’s because he knows the corrupt corporate media will never take any Democrat scandals seriously.”

The Federalist’s senior legal correspondent, Margot Cleveland, added, “Whenever Biden says ‘I’m not joking,’ he’s lying. Whenever he says, ‘I’m joking,’ he’s telling the truth.”

“Where there’s malarkey there’s fire?” editor at large for RealClearInvestigations Benjamin Weingarten posted.

“Bank records show the Biden family, their associates, and their companies received over $10 million from foreign nationals and their companies,” said a post from the official GOP Twitter account.

In response, Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., wrote, “When the Biden crime family went to mob school, they skipped out on money laundering class. They put the money in the 20 or so bank accounts and LLCs they created.”

“To start, foreign nationals have sent $10 million to the Biden family, their associates, and their companies,” tweeted GOP rapid response director Tommy Pigott. “Does he care to explain that?”

“Joe Biden just asked, ‘Where’s the money’ when pressed on whether or not he sold out the country with his family’s business deals. Joe, the money is hidden in the DOZENS of LLCs you & your family created to HIDE THE MONEY,” Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., tweeted. “You can run, but you can’t hide from House Republicans.”
