The karma police paid a visit to House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), and he reacted as you’d expect: With anger, petulance, childish insults, and looking guilty as hell.
Referencing reports showing that Comer had engaged in land swaps with his brother, including loans Comer made to his brother, Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-FL) suggested that Comer was guilty of the same thing he has accused President Joe Biden of doing.
“I’m happy to yield you some of my time today, Mr. Chairman, because I think you owe it to the American people to explain why you’ve gone on Fox News and told people, while the president was out of office, he had a loan with his brother, and in a way they were evading taxes. It has come out in the public that you also do business with your brother with potential loans,” Moscowitz noted.
In response, Comer began yelling:
“I would love it! You retweeted that story. Completely false. I’ve never loaned my brother one penny.”
“That story that you tweeted also said that I had a shell company. That is bullshit! I think that the problem is, you know, the White House tried to get CNN to write that story. They went around and investigated all this bullshit…that only dumb financially illiterate people pick up on, and said that it was a shell company because it was an LLC.”
“But you and [Rep. Dan] Goldman, who is ‘Mr. Trust Fund,’ continue to try to discredit — ” Comer boomed.
Moscowitz: “Reclaim my time!”
Comer became more agitated.
That’s when Moscowitz hit Comer with a verbal two-by-four:
Sure, Jim. No one believes you’d ever give a deposition under oath. There’s too big a risk you’d commit perjury within the first 10 seconds.
