GOP Rep. James Comer Claims Democrats Have “Opened A Can Of Worms” As Republican County Attorneys Reportedly Seeking To Investigate the Bidens

When Obama was president, the Senate Democrats, under the leadership of Senator Harry Reid, changed the rules as applied to presidential nominees for all executive-branch positions and judicial vacancies below the Supreme Court. 

The new rules made it possible for nominees to advance with a simple majority of 51 votes rather than the 60-vote threshold previously required. 

Senator Mitch McConnell, the then-minority leader, warned the Democrats that they may one day soon regret their decision. 

They did just that a few years later during the Trump administration. 

Fast forward to 2023 when the Democrats are again engaging in political games by indicting a former president and trying to turn what would, at best, be a misdemeanor into a felony. 

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said that this politically-motivated indictment may come back to bite them. 

Comer is currently looking into President Joe Biden’s sketchy foreign business dealings. He told the hosts of “Fox & Friends” that he’s received two phone calls from county attorneys in Kentucky and Tennessee regarding going after Biden for his alleged crimes.

“They were Republican, obviously, both states are heavily Republican. They want to know if there are ways they can go after the Bidens now,” said Comer.

Former federal prosecutor Ankush Khardori said that Alvin Bragg’s actions have set a “dangerous precedent.”

“Mr. Bragg may have been the first local prosecutor to do it, but he will probably not be the last. Every local prosecutor in the country will now feel that he or she has free rein to criminally investigate and prosecute presidents after they leave office,” wrote Khardori in the New York Times.

“Democrats currently cheering the charges against Mr. Trump may feel differently if — or when — a Democrat, perhaps even President Biden, ends up on the receiving end of a similar effort by any of the thousands of prosecutors elected to local office, eager to make a name for themselves by prosecuting a former president of the United States.”

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton agreed that the Trump indictment has indeed opened up a can of worms.

He told the New York Post that going forward, “All bets are off. You can expect grand jury indictments of leftist politicians like Biden, [former House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi, and [Senate Majority Leader Chuck] Schumer as surely as night follows day.

“You can be sure that there are prosecutors across Florida and Texas right now who are looking for a state law hook into the Biden family,” Fitton continued. “And if they’re not, they’re not doing their jobs.”

Former Neil Gorsuch law clerk and legal expert Mike Davis told the Post, “Republicans need to learn how to take off the gloves and put on the brass knuckles and break glass jaws — politically and legally, not physically.”

“If New York can turn a routine settlement of a business dispute seven years ago into a felony, I think our Republican AGs and DAs should get creative,” added Davis, adding that “two wrongs don’t make it right, but it makes it even.”
