NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Ryan Nobles made House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) look like a complete fool in what may well be record time during an interview on the topic of Comer’s efforts to impeach President Joe Biden.
Nobles began by telling Comer:
Comer: “That is not true.”
Nobles then inquired, “So that you’re saying that that information has been made up then? Where did that information come from? That came from the Committee.”
“I don’t know,” Comer claimed. “We haven’t seen that information.”
“That is Committee information that is collected from the bank records that your committee has obtained,” Nobles added.
“Just show the check,” Comer insisted.
Nobles asked Comer if he had “a canceled check for every wire transfer that’s ever come into your account?”
“Yes,” Comer replied.
Nobles confronted the chairman with more facts.
“And that’s what has been shown, there is bank records that demonstrate an exact same amount of money. Are you saying, okay, sir, are you saying those bank records do not exist? That show the money leaving the President’s account and into his son’s?”
Comer: “They were money laundering. You see wires going all over the –”
Nobles pressed further:
“No, no!” Comer raged “There’s money coming from a law firm.”
“That doesn’t exist? That doesn’t exist, sir?” Nobles noted.
Getting angrier, Comer said, “It does not exist. It’s coming from a law firm. Who put who put the money in the law firm? How do you know the money came from Joe Biden? It could have come from one of Hunter shell companies. You have no idea.”
Nobles: “Okay. So you are saying that that money that that money exists?That transfer does exist there in the bank records that you and your committee –”
“No!” Comer again shouted “You don’t know what that transfer is.”
Afterwards, Adam Cohen of Lawyers for Good Government, wrote on Twitter, “James Comer goes from checks that confirm harmless transactions between Joe and Hunter Biden ‘do not exist’ To ‘they exist, but we claim they might be suspicious.'”
House Republicans are the Keystone Cops of the political world, and James Comer is one of the biggest buffoons of them all.
