PSA: New GOP House Oversight Chair James Comer Is A F*cking Clown
All your latest updates on Joe Biden's classified documents, because everything is terrible and stupid.
Good morning! Welcome back to the Joe Biden classified documents story, which is worse than Donald Trump's classified documents because Hunter Biden's laptop and Hunter Biden's penis and because Republicans are deeply unserious and deeply unwell people.
In every way, the Biden classified documents story -- while still infuriating for a number of reasons -- is a how-to class on "What To Do If You Accidentally Took Some Classified Docs Home And Found Them In Your Backpack." Meanwhile, Donald Trump stole a far greater number of classified documents, and has spent the entire time since investigators started asking lying about it and ducking subpoenas. Nobody in the general public has any idea what kind of nefarious purposes Trump had for those documents, but it is Trump, so no matter how horrifying the truth ends up being, we will not be shocked.
This weekend, the Biden administration continued being obscenely transparent about this and revealed that on Thursday, Biden White House lawyer Richard Sauber found a few MORE classified docs from Joe Biden's Wilmington, Delaware, house. (This is batch three.) So of course they told us immediately, because they are good and they are well-behaved and when they find classified documents they always tell the teacher immediately!
Sauber found the document because Biden's personal lawyers called him when they found that other classified doc next to the garage in Wilmington. So he went out there to help turn it over to the Justice Department. One thing led to another and they checked this other box, blah blah blah.
"Because I have a security clearance, I went to Wilmington Thursday evening to facilitate providing the document the President’s personal counsel found on Wednesday to the Justice Department," Sauber said. "While I was transferring it to the DOJ officials who accompanied me, five additional pages with classification markings were discovered among the material with it, for a total of six pages. The DOJ officials with me immediately took possession of them."
He added, "The President’s lawyers have acted immediately and voluntarily to provide the Penn Biden documents to the Archives and the Wilmington documents to DOJ."
Again, this is what you should do in the unlikely event you ever find a document with classified markings in one of your piles of junk mail. Returning classified documents is easy and fun!
You don't go on the radio and call the special counsel appointed to investigate a "terrorist" and paint a target on their family; you don't lie and say you declassified those documents in your brain; you don't baselessly insinuate that maybe the FBI/Deep State planted those documents, and you don't lie to the National Archives and Justice Department to conceal the fact that you are still hiding a shitload more classified documents you stole.
None of this changes the fact that Kentucky Fried Pigshit Person Rep. James Comer, new chair of the House Oversight Committee, told Jake Tapper this weekend that he will be investigating Biden's classified documents, but not Trump's. Why? Refer to what we said about how Republicans are deeply unserious and deeply unwell, and add how they are where integrity goes to die.
Also remember that the entire thing James Comer is famous for is heavily breathing in frustration in November because reporters wouldn't focus their questions on Hunter Biden. If we could keep this about Hunter Biden, OK? We think it's pretty important to keep this about Hunter Biden! Hunter Biden!
Tapper played a clip of Comer saying in November that the Trump documents case would "not be a priority" for him, and asked:
“Do you only care about classified documents being mishandled when Democrats do the mishandling?” Tapper asked.
“Absolutely not,” Comer responded. He added, “At the end of the day, my biggest concern isn’t the classified documents, to be honest with you. My concern is how there’s such a discrepancy in how former President Trump was treated, by raiding Mar-a-Lago, by getting the security cameras, by taking pictures of documents on the floor, by going throughMelania’scloset versus Joe Biden where its like — okay, your personal lawyers who don’t have security clearance, they can go through, they can just keep looking and keep looking and determine whatever is there. That’s not equal treatment, and we’re very concerned and there’s a lack of trust here at the Department of Justice by house Republicans.”
"Why was Mar-a-Lago raided, but the president's home not?" asked Comer, as disingenuously as every other square-faced white-haired southern Republican who looks like he's dressed in drag for a Young Newt Gingrich lookalike contest. He told Tapper that “With respect to investigating President Trump, there have been so many investigations of President Trump. I don’t feel like we need to spend a whole lot of time investigating President Trump because the Democrats have done that for the past six years."
To which we reply oh go fuck yourself .
Also, if Comer moves those goalposts any faster he's going to poke somebody's eye out.
All these questions have been asked and answered. Gallants who cooperate in every way are treated with respect. Goofuses who lie and obstruct investigations get their asses raided. It's real fuckin' simple. And if Melania has to buy new underpants, well, Wonkette has already done the journalistic work of finding out where the closest Walmart to Mar-a-Lago is.
Here's the entire interview if you like hick yokels with grins that make people uncomfortable.
Things are about to get so much stupider. You can tell by looking at James Comer's face, it is the face of "getting stupider."
