SHOT/CHASER: James Comer Admits House Might Not Have the Votes to Proceed with Impeachment of President Biden Following Latest Embarrassment

Feb 16, 2024

In yet another embarrassing blow to James Comer and his investigation into President Biden, his star witness whose claims have been the lynchpin in the House Republicans’ investigation was arrested yesterday for lying in his statements about President Biden and his son. Now Comer is saying that the House may never actually hold a vote on impeaching President Biden. 

In response, Congressional Integrity Project executive director, Kyle Herrig, issued the following statement: 

“Comer conceding that Republicans might not have enough votes to impeach President Biden should not be surprising since Comer has failed to find a single shred of evidence of wrongdoing by President Biden and even his fellow Republicans have criticized his impeachment attempt with one calling it a ‘parade of embarrassments.’ So far Comer has been okay being the grand marshall of this clown show parade but a man can only take so much. How many more embarrassments can Comer handle before admitting that there is no there, there in this baseless impeachment investigation?”

SHOT:  James Comer’s local Kentucky paper calls him an embarrassment after his star witness against President Biden was federally indicted and arrested for lying about President Biden and his son.

      • “You’ve got to wonder if Jamie Comer can even feel a sense of humiliation anymore. After months and months of overhyping and flat out lying about what people who have testified in private have said about President Joe Biden and his involvement in his son Hunter’s business dealings, the basis for his overwrought allegations and investigation collapsed on Thursday. That’s when a special counsel arrested the guy whose claims were the underpinnings of Comer’s investigation, and accused him of lying about the whole thing.”

      • “The Comer investigation isn’t about holding a criminal politician responsible for his actions. It’s about creating a swirling storm of unverified claims about the president to harm his chances for reelection. That’s what he has done each time he has commented on the testimony given in secret to his committee, only to be proven a liar when his committee releases transcripts of the hearing that don’t include his dishonest spin.”
      • “It’s a shame Comer can’t feel the humiliation and embarrassment he has become.”

CHASER: After over a year of investigations into President Biden, Comer admits that the House might not actually have the votes to proceed with impeachment.

  • Spectrum News: Rep. James Comer: Biden impeachment vote may not happen
    • “Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., the chairman of the House Oversight Committee who is leading the Republican effort to investigate President Joe Biden, says the House may not hold an impeachment vote after all. Comer told Spectrum News that the math keeps getting worse’ for Republicans, whose razor-thin majority in the House got even tighter after losing a Republican-held New York congressional seat earlier this week. Comer’s monthslong probe has not produced any evidence that Joe Biden has benefitted from his son Hunter’s business activities.”

    • “‘The accountability, I hope will come this year, but it may come next year with a new president, a new attorney general,’ said Comer. ‘At the end of the day, my goal is to get the truth out there and hold people accountable for wrongdoing. That may encompass impeachment. If it doesn’t, that’s fine with me.’”
