House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) felt very uncomfortable when asked why he would simply not subpoena Hunter Biden.
Comer went on Newsmax Wednesday morning and was asked, “When are you going to subpoena Hunter Biden and drag him to Capitol Hill for questioning?”
Rep. Comer responded, “Well, I guess what I want to look at with Hunter Biden. If I could only have one thing about Hunter Biden. It would be his bank details.’
Comer added some conspiracy topics and then referenced the compromised laptop, but the Newsmax host was not satisfied and asked again, “But Congressman, why not subpoena him and have him testify on Capitol Hill?” Even if he doesn’t say anything that will be uncomfortable for the president, his son should testify on the Hill.”
Chairman Comer crumbled a little further: “Well, as I said early in the investigation, I think we’re going to follow the money and Hunter Biden is more than welcome to appear before the committee if he wants to clear his good name. . If he wants to come out and say, these weren’t twenty shell companies. They actually did something that he is more than what he was invited to do. Today. We drop everything.”
The host pointed out that Hunter Biden would have to show up if he is subpoenaed, and Comer revealed something important, saying, “Well, he can fight the subpoena in court.” It is very difficult. You know, I think if it had been easy to get the president or their son before the House committee on January 6, it probably would have happened with Donald Trump as well.
The 1/6 Committee interviewed Trump’s family. The committee interviewed Donald Trump Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, so there is no reason for Comer not to interview Hunter Biden.
Newsmax is as friendly a media source for Biden’s impeachment as Rep. Comer will get, and the fact that he can’t handle their questions shows how thin and superficial the Republican party’s impeachment process is.
There are dozens of Republicans who don’t buy what Comer is selling on impeachment. and the situation for Republicans in the House of Representatives is unlikely to improve as scrutiny of their investigation increases.
