This morning, HtS breathlessly rushed to share a video of James Comer making his unsubstantiated accusations against Joe Biden, calling the allegations "evidence".
James Comer is a farmer. I have nothing against farmers, but wouldn't the House Republicans be better off in their efforts to impeach Biden if it were led by somebody with some legal training and an understanding of the rules of evidence? Comer has misfired more than an untuned Yugo.
(WaPo)As House Republicans move toward a floor vote to authorize an impeachment inquiry against President Biden, House Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) has again mischaracterized evidence of payments from Hunter Biden to his father.
In an email to reporters, a spokesperson for Comer claimed that the House Oversight Committee, which is investigating Biden, had obtained bank records revealing that Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco PC, which had received payments from Chinese-state-linked companies and other foreign companies in the past, made direct monthly payments to Joe Biden. The email claimed the payments “are part of a pattern revealing Joe Biden knew about, participated in and benefited from his family’s influence-peddling schemes.”
The three payments of $1,380 that occurred in September, October and November 2018 — nearly two years after Biden had left the vice presidency — were actually for a 2018 Ford Raptor truck Joe Biden had purchased that Hunter Biden was using, according to an email verified by a Washington Post forensic analysis.
