Rep. Comer says he has enough votes to open Biden impeachment inquiry

September 9, 2023

If what House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) said his conference's intention to impeach, then President Joe Biden is on the verge of having a really bad year.

Eyes from both sides of the political aisle have been on the upcoming return of Republican House members from their recess, as buzz grows regarding the possible impeachment of the current president.

According to Breitbart, Comer dropped the biggest hint yet -- and stirred headlines -- after revealing that he believes the Republican-led House has the required support to open an impeachment inquiry against Biden.

The news came during an interview with Newsmax TV’s Rob Schmitt Tonight.

"I do believe that we have the votes for impeachment inquiry. I think that with the revelation of all these emails, you know that Joe Biden was communicating with Hunter Biden about his business about all of the corruption that he was involved in," Comer said.

He added, "I think that was the straw that broke the camel’s back with a few of the Republicans that were a little nervous about going the route of impeachment inquiry. They realized that we need this tool to be able to win in court because that’s where we’re headed. We’ve just about picked all the low-hanging fruit."

Comer speculated as to when he believes such a vote could take place, noting that it'll be on Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to make it happen.

"I think that the House will vote in September. Now, this is all up to Kevin McCarthy, but he and I’ve had several conversations. I know Jim Jordan has spoken with him many times as well. I would predict that in the middle of September, we have a vote," Comer said.

Comer added, "I will predict that it passes, and I will predict that we will use that with all these government agencies that are refusing to turn over valuable information like the National Archives."

The news drew mixed reactions across social media, with some cheering the news, and some remaining skeptical that the GOP will actually come together and go through with it.

"This month??? Blah blah blah!" one X user wrote.

Another X user wrote, "Stop talking and just do it!!"

Only time will tell if Comer's predictions prove true, but it seems like most Republican voters demand that it happen, and their elected representatives would be wise to move forward with it.
