Democrats Say Trump Deserves Prison, You Agree?

Comer Indicates Impeachment Vote May Not Be ‘Ideal Route’ in Biden Investigation

James Comer (R-Ky.), Chair of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, hinted that pursuing an impeachment vote against President Biden might not be the most effective strategy, favoring criminal referrals instead. Comer emphasized the potential for criminal referrals to hold Biden accountable, especially given the likelihood that the Democratic-majority Senate would dismiss an impeachment case. Comer, who supports impeaching Biden, highlighted the impeachment inquiry’s role in aiding information gathering for legal battles.

During a recent committee hearing on the impeachment inquiry, Democrats challenged Republicans to specify the criminal activities central to their investigation, amidst growing skepticism about the probe into Biden’s business transactions. Comer maintained that criminal referrals to the Department of Justice represent “real accountability” for Biden.

The hearing saw Democratic representatives, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), pressing for concrete charges from the Republicans, who have been focusing on the “Biden family’s” alleged misconduct without specifying the accusations. Ocasio-Cortez criticized the committee’s approach and questioned the validity of their evidence.

Despite the criticism, Comer continues to assert that the Biden family engaged in criminal activities by leveraging presidential access for profit. He plans to invite President Biden to testify before the committee regarding the substantial sums the Biden family purportedly received from foreign entities with the president’s help.
