ROUNDUP: James Comer Gets Called Out for Being All Hat, No Cattle

May 10, 2023

James Comer finally held his long-promised and over-hyped press conference about his investigation into President Biden and his family today, but it’s clear Comer and his MAGA colleagues once again over-promised and under-delivered. They once again failed to prove anything other than the fact that this investigation has been a political stunt designed to provide political cover to sexual assaulter Donald Trump and hurt President Biden and the Democrats. Comer again failed to deliver the goods he’s promised for months – a scintilla of evidence of wrongdoing by President Biden. But don’t just take our word for it:

CNN: “The Latest Report Does Not Show Any Payments Made Directly To Joe Biden, Either As Vice President Or After Leaving Office.” “The memo marks Comer’s most direct attempt to substantiate his allegations that Biden family members have enriched themselves off the family name. Comer has suggested that Biden may have been improperly influenced by the financial dealings, particularly by his family’s foreign business partners, but the latest report does not show any payments made directly to Joe Biden, either as vice president or after leaving office.” [CNN, 5/10/23]

PoliticusUSA: James Comer Crashes And Burns At Humiliating Biden Crime Press Conference. “Comer has no actual evidence that President Biden did anything wrong. There is no evidence that Biden solicited funds from foreign countries in exchange for policy influence. House Republicans are making it up as they go along. James Comer is abusing his power as the chair of the House Oversight Committee, and he is wasting taxpayer money on these investigations.” [PoliticusUSA, 5/10/23]

Raw Story: Gop’s Biden Family Investigation On Brink Of Collapse As Pressure Mounts To Produce Evidence: Report. “A House Republican investigation led by Oversight Chair James Comer (R-KY) has been trying to link President Joe Biden and his family to accusations of essentially accepting bribes from foreign countries. But Politico reports they have yet to deliver the goods — and are under pressure to do so, at the risk of their probe losing steam and legitimacy.” [Raw Story, 5/10/23]

Mediaite: “The Probe Has Yet To Implicate The President In Any Illegalities, Nor Has It Proven A Detriment To U.S. Policies Of National Interests.” “Comer held a press conference on Wednesday to lay out his accusations that Biden and his son Hunter received millions of dollars from foreign entities. While the investigation gravitates around the Biden family’s business dealings and the argument that Hunter profiteered off of his family name, the probe has yet to implicate the president in any illegalities, nor has it proven a detriment to U.S. policies of national interests.” [Mediaite, 5/10/23]

Geraldo Rivera, Fox Correspondent: “Republicans on the Oversight Committee investigating alleged corruption by then Vice President Joe Biden and 9 members of his family struggling to find direct evidence of criminal conduct or corruption. The Committee’s angry allegations are vague and general and do not point to specific crimes. It still comes down to put up (that evidence) or shut up.” [Twitter, 5/10/23]
