House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., labeled the ongoing investigation into President Joe Biden as "the biggest political corruption scandal in my lifetime" on Friday, emphasizing concerns about public corruption and influence peddling.
He highlighted discrepancies in Biden's statements regarding the investigated documents, stressing the importance of obtaining accurate transcripts and specific materials central to the inquiry.
Comer criticized media silence regarding demands for transcript releases related to the Biden investigation, alleging bias in coverage. He asserted, "The media is not saying anything about demanding to turn over the transcripts of this interview because they know this is the interview from hell for Joe Biden."
Prominent House GOP leaders have released a statement on the bombshell report from Special Counsel Robert Hur that suggested President Biden shouldn’t be tried for mishandling classified documents because he’s too old and forgetful.
House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., Majority Whip Tom Emmer, R-Minn., and conference Chair Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., released a joint statement after special counsel Robert Hur report documented how Biden “willfully” retained highly classified documents while exonerating him as a “well-meaning elderly man with a poor memory.”
“The Special Counsel’s finding that President Biden ‘willfully retained and disclosed classified materials’ and engaged in practices that ‘present serious risks to national security’ is deeply disturbing,” the leaders wrote.
“Not only does it demonstrate the President’s recklessness, but exposes a two-tiered system of justice that is indicting one President with politically motivated charges while carrying water for another amid similar allegations.”
