Home Oversight Committee Rating Member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) busted Chairman James Comer’s try at a Trump indictment distraction by releasing an FBI interview transcript.
Raskin mentioned in a press release supplied to PoliticusUSA:
After deliberately withholding it from the American public for 4 weeks, Chairman Comer has lastly launched the transcript of the Committee’s interview with a former FBI supervisory particular agent who had been assigned to the Hunter Biden FBI investigation.
The Chairman’s launch, clearly timed to distract from information of an imminent potential fourth prison indictment of Donald Trump, options the identical selective and distorted parsing of data now we have come to count on in service of the Republicans’ fruitless investigation into President Biden, which has failed to show up a single shred of proof of wrongdoing.
The testimony of the Committee’s star witnesses continues to boomerang towards the Majority. Considerably, as in the present day’s transcript reveals, the previous FBI agent acknowledged that he was conscious of no political interference within the investigation. He acknowledged that disagreements between prosecutors and investigators are commonplace on this discipline. He defined that the FBI and prosecutors on this matter adopted long-standing and commonsense insurance policies relating to investigative steps.
At this time’s transcript as soon as once more confirms that David Weiss, a Trump-appointed U.S. Lawyer, hand-picked by then-Lawyer Basic William Barr, has for years been investigating the President’s son with none political interference from the Administration,” mentioned Rating Member Raskin.
The discharge of the transcript was a part of a coordinated ploy to distract from Trump’s upcoming Georgia indictment. Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) went on Fox Business to wave the Biden impeachment distraction flag by suggesting that Home Republicans may skip performing an impeachment investigation and go straight to the ultimate step of voting to question the President Of America.
Republicans try to counterprogram towards Trump’s Georgia indictment as a result of it seems to be to be unhealthy, Doubtlessly, very unhealthy for the Republican Party to have their frontrunner for the presidential nomination indicted on RICO charges.
Rating Member Raskin has been asking Comer for weeks to launch the complete transcript, and by coincidence, Comer picked in the present day to do it,
Solely, it isn’t a coincidence, and Raskin busted Comer’s try at a distraction.
