James Comer Trashed Online After His Latest Biden Bribery ‘Bombshell’ Gets Easily Debunked

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) claimed to have a BIG announcement this morning that would prove President Joe Biden accepted thousands of dollars from China via his son, Hunter, but what he later posted online and shared with right-wing media turned out to be yet another enormous nothing burger.

Here’s the breathless reporting from Newsmax based on information given to them by Comer:

House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., on Monday released subpoenaed bank records showing that Hunter Biden used a business entity to make monthly payments to his father, President Joe Biden.

The payments to Joe Biden came after Hunter Biden’s business account, Owasco PC, received money from Chinese-state linked companies and other foreign nationals and companies, according to financial records obtained by Comer’s panel.

“Hunter Biden’s legal team and the White House’s media allies claim Hunter’s corporate entities never made payments directly to Joe Biden. We can officially add this latest talking point to the list of lies,” Comer said in a statement.

For his part, Comer posted a video on Twitter in which he made those same allegations.

Just one tiny problem: The payments Comer references were actually repayments of a loan Hunter Biden made to his father, as journalist Yashar Ali noted.

That led to others mocking Comer on social media for his latest giant crock of shit.

What will Comer “uncover” next and suggest is a giant coverup? At the rate he’s going, expect him to accuse the president of caring for his family. How dare he!

Jack Smith Will Reveal ‘Important Evidence’ Today That Lays Out Trump’s Motives For January 6

Later today, Special Counsel Jack Smith is expected to file notice to attorneys for former president Donald Trump of  “any crimes, wrongs, or other bad acts” the Justice Department believes Trump committed in his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election, which he lost in an electoral landslide to President Joe Biden.

Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance notes on Substack that the filing — known formally as a 404(b) notice — is meant to show “evidence of a prior crime, for instance, can be offered to prove ‘motive, opportunity [to commit the crime], intent, preparation, plan, knowledge, identity, absence of mistake, or lack of accident.'”

Given what we already know about Smith’s case against Trump, Vance continues, it’s safe to believe that the special counsel is about to reveal “some important evidence” that significantly boosts has case against the ex-president.

Expect him to focus on proving Trump’s state of mind when it comes to election fraud and the absence of a good faith belief that the path he was setting the nation on would not result in the type of obstructive violence we saw on January 6—in other words, it was no mistake. Smith will also have to advise Trump about the permitted purpose he believes he can offer any 404(b) evidence for and the reasoning in support of his view. This, coincidentally, forces Smith (or perhaps gives him the opportunity depending on your point of view), to educate the public a fair bit more about his case.

Trump is also facing federal criminal prosecution for allegedly stealing classified documents from the White House and transporting them to his Mar-a-Lago resort. That case will be heard in a Florida courtroom while the Jan. 6 case it proceeding in Washington, D.C. with U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan presiding. Chutkan has signaled that she intends to start the trial before the 2024 election is held, which could prove politically disastrous for Trump.

Additionally, the former president is being prosecuted for racketeering in Georgia as a result of his attempts to subvert the will of voters in the Peach State. Several co-defendants have already agreed to cooperate with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

Jen Psaki Has The Perfect Clapback After Trump Threatens MSNBC

MSNBC host Jen Psaki had a message for failed former president Donald Trump after he threatened the network, and she let fly with an epic clapback Sunday.

A couple of days ago, Trump posted this on his failing Truth Social site:

“MSNBC (MSDNC) uses FREE government approved airwaves, and yet it is nothing but a 24 hour hit job on Donald J. Trump and the Republican Party for purposes of ELECTION INTERFERENCE. Brian Roberts, its Chairman and CEO, is a slimeball who has been able to get away with these constant attacks for years. It is the world’s biggest political contribution to the Radical Left Democrats who, by the way, are destroying our Country. Our so-called ‘government’ should come down hard on them and make them pay for their illegal political activity. Much more to come, watch!”

That, Psaki explained, “sounded just like another one of those crazy, unhinged rants” Donald is famous for, but “he also talked about himself in the third person — always a red flag in my book, and he included his middle initial in that too.”

Psaki then gave the disgraced ex-president a lesson in the First Amendment and media in the United States:

“Trump is promising to resort to an authoritarian tactic should he become president again. Does the federal government have any role in the oversight of a cable news network? No they actually don’t. But that’s not the point here. What’s important is that he’s threatening to use the power of the government against media he believes is being critical of him.”

She added:

“Believe me, I know from experience from many days and hours at the briefing room, that the relationship between the U.S. government and the free press can be tense at times. And even both of the presidents I worked for, they had their own moments of unleashing their media critiques when they didn’t like a story. and when I think about the role of the free press and how essential it is for our democracy. I also think about my time as a spokesperson for the State Department.”

The larger issue, Psaki noted, is freedom of the press, which Trump is clearly opposed to, despite what the U.S. Constitution (and numerous Supreme Court decisions) have to say on the matter.

“It’s actually a threat to the free press. A threat to democracy. And that threat comes at a time when a record total of 533 journalists are currently detained worldwide. That’s according to Reporters Without Borders. A large number of them are being held by the sorts of authoritarian regimes that Trump envisions creating here at home.”

It’s not an overstatement to say that if Donald Trump wins in 2024, this country will become an authoritarian nightmare reminiscent of other totalitarian regimes (i.e. China and Russia) that censor almost everything their citizens read or see on a television broadcast. We cannot let that happen.

Donald Trump Elections WTF?!

Trump Says He’d Win In Blue States If Jesus ‘Came Down’ And Counted The Votes

Speaking at one of his patented over-the-top political rallies in Iowa on Saturday evening, failed one-term, twice-impeached, and multiply-indicted ex-president Donald Trump said he has no doubt whatsoever that he won several blue states in the 2020 election and would win them once more in 2024 if only Jesus would “come down” and count the ballots.

Mediaite reports that Trump made all sorts of bizarre statements, but it was the ones about Jesus tabulating votes that drew the most attention.

“I actually believe that if they didn’t have rigged elections out there, if they didn’t have all the paper bal– you know, they send out like 36 million ballots and nobody knows where the hell they’re going to or coming from. I think a few people know where they’re going to and a few people know where they’re coming from,” said Trump about California.

“But I think if you had a real election and Jesus came down and God came down and said, I’m going to be the scorekeeper here, I think we would win there,” said Trump. “I think would win in Illinois, and I think it would win in New York, which is all places that, in theory –”

New York, Trump continued, is turning against Democrats due to the issue of immigration, so the Empire State should be easy pickings in next year’s presidential race.

“I think you can win New York. I think you can win New Jersey. I think we can win Virginia. People that, states that in theory, would be with us.”

Then it was back to the airing of grievances about the 2020 race, which Trump lost in an electoral landslide to President Joe Biden.

“I think for years we could have won them. These elections are rigged. Our elections are totally rigged and we got to do something about it. The radical left Democrats rigged the presidential election of 2020, and we’re not going to allow them to rig the presidential election of 2024 and destroy our country totally.”

What Trump neglected to explain is why Jesus or God would intervene on his behalf. After all, he’s the most corrupt and immoral person to ever run for any public office.

Also, according to the Bible (which Trump has never read), God doesn’t bless evil people, and there are few human beings more filled with devilish motives than the clown who still thinks he’s beloved by the American people.

Congress GOP Joe Biden

WATCH: Joe Biden Hilariously Mocks Lauren Boebert: ‘Massive Failure In Her Thinking’

President Joe Biden had a laugh at the expense of Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert during an interview on a progressive podcast, suggesting that the controversial Boebert doesn’t give much thought to the patently ridiculous things she says before she spouts off.

Speaking with Ben Meiselas of the anti-Trump Meidas Touch PAC, Biden was shown remarks Boebert made about the Inflation Reduction Act.

Meiselas told the president:

“We’re at the CS Wind turbine factory, the largest wind turbine factory in the world.”

“You were talking about the Inflation Reduction Act and jobs being brought to cities and communities across the United States of America and here in Pueblo. And the MAGA Republican representative, though, of Pueblo, Colorado, is MAGA Republican Lauren Boebert, and she gives the alternative position there on the Inflation Reduction Act.

“And she says that the Inflation Reduction Act is a massive failure. And she said that it is another con by the Democrats. If I can. I want to show you a video of MAGA Republican Lauren Boebert talking. I apologize in advance for even showing this to you.”

Cue the video of Boebert, railing on the House floor: “And it does the exact opposite of what Americans need right now! This is just another con game by the Democrats calling something one thing.”

That led Biden to comment:

“If it weren’t so important, it’d be humorous! What’d she call it, a massive failure? The only massive failure occurs in her thinking. The idea that in her own district. We’ve created so many new, good-paying jobs. And by the way, it’s generating economic growth across the board was the board. And when people get a good job, what they do is they have an opportunity to spend on things that their, basic needs for themselves. And by the way, we cut the deficit by $7 billion. The idea that she’s talking about this being a massive failure, I don’t get it. I don’t know whether they just don’t understand anything or whether or not they, in fact, are.”

The president added:

“I hope she comes back here and tells the people in this factory the largest wind turbine factory in the world, that this is a massive stimulus. So just to invite her to come back. Come back and tell the folks back home. This is a massive failure. Tell the folks back home that all we’ve done to generate economic growth is not worth it. And I’d like to ask explain how she supports not taxing billionaires more than 8%. I have trouble explaining that again. I probably shouldn’t waste my time trying to.”

The latest polls from Boebert’s district suggest she’s in big trouble come November, as her challenger, Adam Frisch, is raising tons of campaign money and polling well against the incumbent. Here’s hoping that means Boebert will soon be a former member of Congress.
