Comer Predicts ‘Big Week’ Of Subpoenas, Depositions

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) revealed during a Sunday interview that the House was in for a “big week” in regard to the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden and the investigations into Biden family corruption.

Despite being the lead impeachment inquiry investigator, Comer noted that he was leaving the final decision on impeachment up to newly-elected Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA).

“I think he should [be impeached], but that’s going to be left up to the speaker,” he told Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Comer went on to push back on people who criticize him for not putting people “in jail” — noting that he doesn’t have that power, as his job is to “investigate.” He pointed out that, in the end, the process won’t play out in the correct manner if the justice system isn’t fair, and Americans are currently witnessing a two-tiered system of justice.

“People ask me why I haven’t put someone in jail yet. All I can do is investigate,” he explained. “The House of Representatives can determine whether or not to impeach. But, at the end of the day, we’re going to need an attorney general who does the right thing and prosecutes people according to the law and doesn’t have a two-tier system of justice.”

Comer also pointed out that the Biden administration has worked very hard to obstruct the impeachment inquiry at every turn — including the president’s latest efforts to avoid handing over documentation surrounding his supposed loans to his brother, James Biden.

“This has been a painful process, Maria. We’ve been obstructed. We’ve been followed at every turn, not just by the Bidens’ big-money attorneys, but also by the federal government. The IRS is obstructed. The DOJ is obstructed. The Treasury has obstructed. FBI has obstructed, and the Democrats on the House Oversight Committee have pretty much been the Biden legal defense team,” he said.

He argued that Republicans have already “proven” that the Biden family was involved in influence peddling — but “now what we’re looking at is Joe’s involvement,” which is already evidenced by the funds given to him by his family members for supposed loan repayments.

The Oversight Committee Chairman predicted a “big week” ahead, revealing that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is scheduled to depose special counsel David Weiss, who is heading up a criminal inquiry into Hunter Biden.

Comer also predicted “somewhere around two dozen subpoenas in the very near future.”

Meanwhile, House Speaker Johnson has said that the House was “coming to a point of decision” on the impeachment inquiry “very soon.”
