Rep. Comer Calls Out Biden For Not Keeping Word About Unity
According to Rep. James Comer, who sat down with Newsmax Thursday just before President Joe Biden delivered remarks on the one-year anniversary of the riots at the U.S. Capitol, saying that Biden ran on the theme of bringing American citizens together, but has not shown an “ounce of unity during the entire first year of his presidency.
“He’s only been divisive,” Comer, R-Ky., went on to say during an interview on Newsmax’s “Wake Up America.”
“Every piece of legislation that he’s proposed has been partisan. He has no Republican support and he seeks no Republican input, and as a result, he has accomplished very, very little legislatively,” Comer stated.
The American people have also seen the results of liberal Democratic policy through Biden’s executive orders, which have brought no border security but increased crime, said Comer.
He added that Biden, in his speech at the Capitol, was given a bully pulpit and a chance to try to unite Americans, but “he’s only going to further divide a very divided United States of America.”
Meanwhile, Comer said the mainstream media is “trying to embarrass” Trump.
“What happened on Jan. 6 was unacceptable,” said the congressman. “I condemned it then, and I condemn it now. I was actually on the House floor, and I can tell you it was something that we should never see again in the United States of America, especially in the center of democracy.”
Comer said there definitely should be investigations conducted into what happened on that day, especially concerning the lapse in security that enabled people to storm the Capitol, but he also said Democrats have “just tried to play this from an angle of embarrassing Donald Trump and embarrassing the Republicans.”
“If they were sincere about a true investigation they would try to figure out what happened with the lapse and security of the Capitol,” Comer said.
“He also criticized comments from Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who heads the House select committee investigating the attacks. Thompson said earlier this week that the group’s final report should be out in October, which would put it out shortly before the November elections,” Comer went on to say.
“It’s all political,” said the Republican congressman. “It’s been political from day one, and that’s very unfortunate.”
Comer than slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“She made the committee partisan from day one; and therefore, the majority of Americans aren’t going to put any credibility into whatever the final report says,” said Comer. “That’s unfortunate because I do believe the American people deserve answers. We also deserve answers to the security lapse, and they’re not even going to cover that … it’s very unfortunate,” he finished.
