James Comer SCHOOLS Chuck Todd on Importance of Hunter Investigation

Political News

On Sunday’s Meet the Press, moderator, and Democrat activist Chuck Todd whined to House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer that the necessary oversight that Comer and his committee will be conducting will look “more partisan than professional.” Comer proceeded to take Todd to school about how that is far from the case. 

“You’re going to do a lot of oversight, a lot of subpoenas, many people look at what you’re doing, and they see that it looks more partisan than professional,” Todd asked Comer. “Tell me how you’re going to try to departisanize an investigation, or do you expect it to be partisan?” Todd continued.

This gave Comer an opening to take it to Todd and explain why the Biden administration needs to be investigated (click “expand”): 

Well with all due respect, Chuck I disagree with that. I think the only people who see this as partisan investigation are the media and the hard-core Democrats. Look at the same moment that the Democrats on the Ways & Means committee released Donald Trump’s taxes, they then moments later turned around and said Comer’s investigation of the Biden family influence peddling is a revengering [sic] are you kidding me? Look, a Harvard poll just came out and said 65 percent of the Americans believe that the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop should be investigated. But let me be clear, we’re not investigating Hunter Biden, we’re investigating Joe Biden. 

“I think any American who’s kept up with the political process over the past two administrations would agree, we need to know what is allowable and what isn’t allowable with respect to foreign adversarial intervention among family members of Presidents of the United States,” Comer added.

“If you didn’t like the way Democrats did it, it sounds like you’re gonna do it in the same way that they did it. How is it any better?” Todd shot back. 

Comer explained that “everything that we have requested, we have evidence to back up. There are e-mails and text messages that show Hunter Biden complaining about having to spend so much money keeping his dad up.” 

“That’s a concern because Hunter Biden’s only source of income was from our adversaries in China and Russia for influence peddling. This is something that we should look into. This isn’t political. Want to know was the President truthful when he said he didn’t have any knowledge or involvement in his family’s shady business dealings. And once we determine that we will move on,” Comer explained. 

With his back to the wall, Todd got in a sarcastic comment before ending the segment and scurrying away to a commercial break: “well it does sound personal.” 

The Biden crime family using Joe Biden’s influence to enrich themselves isn’t “personal” or political. It is the definition of corruption and needs to be looked into. Todd would be screaming from the roof of the NBC building in Washington D.C. if this was Donald Trump Jr.

CHUCK TODD: Let me ask you this. You’re going to do a lot of oversight, a lot of subpoenas, many people look at what you’re doing, and they see that it looks more partisan than professional. Tell me how you’re going to try to departisanize an investigation, or do you expect it to be partisan?

REP. JAMES COMER: Well with all due respect, Chuck I disagree with that. I think the only people who see this as partisan investigation are the media and the hard-core Democrats. Look at the same moment that the Democrats on the Ways & Means committee released Donald Trump’s taxes, they then moments later turned around and said Comer’s investigation of the Biden family influence peddling is a revengering are you kidding me? Look, a Harvard poll just came out and said 65 percent of the Americans believe that the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop should be investigated. But let me be clear, we’re not investigating Hunter Biden, we’re investigating Joe Biden. 

And I think any American who’s kept up with the political process over the past two administrations would agree, we need to know what is allowable and what isn’t allowable with respect to foreign adversarial intervention among family members of Presidents of the United States. That’s something the Democrats complained about with Kushner, and certainly, Republicans, myself included have complained about—

TODD: If you didn’t like the way Democrats did it, it sounds like you’re gonna do it in the same way that they did it. How is it any better? 

COMER: No, I totally disagree with that. Adam Schiff always overpromised and underdelivered. He said just last week, the release in Trump’s tax returns was gonna be a bombshell. I mean there’s no bombshell there! There’s nothing there. I served on a bank board for over a decade. There’s never been a developer that’s paid a lot of federal income tax because of depreciation and tax credits and things like that. 

If the Democrats want to make people like Donald Trump pay taxes, they need to change the tax code, not the tax rate, the tax code! But with respect to what we’re doing. Everything that we have requested, we have evidence to back up. There are e-mails and text messages that show Hunter Biden complaining about having to spend so much money keeping his dad up. 

I mean that’s a concern because Hunter Biden’s only source of income was from our adversaries in China and Russia for influence peddling. This is something that we should look into. This isn’t political. Want to know was the President truthful when he said he didn’t have any knowledge or involvement in his family’s shady business dealings. And once we determine that we will move on.  

TODD: Well it does sound personal.
