  • A donor with deep ties to Ukraine loaned Joe Biden’s younger brother half-a-million dollars at the same time the then-vice president oversaw U.S. policy toward the country.
  • Details of the loan are laid out in property records in Collier County, Florida, where Biden’s younger brother, James, and James’ wife Sara, owned until recently a home on Keewaydin Island.
  • Around the time that the sale closed, the holder of the first mortgage on the house filed a “satisfaction and release of mortgage” acknowledging “full payment and satisfaction” of the original $2.1 million loan.
