Ex-president regularly spoke to rightwing caucus to push for current president’s impeachment, according to media report

James Comer, the chair of the House oversight committee who has led the Republican charge for an impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden, spent “eight months of abject failure” in trying to prove the US president guilty of wrongdoing, according to a watchdog report published on Monday.

Comer has been leading an aggressive investigation into unsubstantiated claims that Biden was involved in his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business affairs during his time as vice-president. But the report by the Congressional Integrity Project, which monitors the Republican investigations, says Comer repeatedly overhyped allegations of bribery and corruption against Biden without once producing hard evidence. The report says:

After months of political stunts, dozens of hearings, transcribed interviews, and memos, and despite hours on Fox peddling conspiracy theories, Comer and his Maga crew have failed to find a single shred of evidence linking President Biden to any of their lurid accusations.

Mr. Trump has been far more aggressive in pushing several members to wipe his own impeachment record clean, the person said, potentially by getting Congress to take the unprecedented step of expunging his two impeachments from the House record.
