( – Democratic representatives are urging James Comer, the Republican Chair of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, to share proof following his allegations of their supposed intimidation tactics during a confidential deposition. Comer, speaking to Newsmax, pinpointed several Democrats, accusing them of attempting to undermine the credibility of witness Tony Bobulinski before his scheduled deposition. Bobulinski’s testimony forms part of a sequence of inquiries underpinning the Republican-driven impeachment investigation into President Biden.

Comer expressed dismay at the behavior he witnessed, attributing the intimidation not to the staff conducting the deposition but to Democratic members themselves, including Jamie Raskin, Dan Goldman, Robert Garcia, and Jasmine Crockett. He claimed they aggressively questioned Bobulinski, labeling him dishonest and coercing him into silence, while lauding Bobulinski as a national hero.

In response, the Democrats Comer named have categorically denied these accusations and have called for the release of any video or transcript evidence to substantiate Comer’s claims. A spokesperson for Comer reiterated his earlier statement, condemning the Democrats’ conduct as disgraceful and promising the forthcoming release of the deposition transcript.

House Oversight Democrats and individual members like Goldman and Garcia took to social media to challenge Comer’s narrative, urging him to make the deposition details public to allow the American populace to form their own judgments. They criticized the credibility of Bobulinski, suggesting his testimony was influenced by partisan motives rather than factual accuracy.

Jamie Raskin, prior to the deposition, had requested Comer to support Bobulinski’s assertions with corroborative testimonies from other officials associated with the Trump administration and campaign, citing serious concerns about Bobulinski’s previous unfounded statements regarding President Biden and the 2020 election. Following the testimony, Raskin reiterated his skepticism, noting Bobulinski’s failure to provide any substantial evidence against President Biden or to implicate him in any business dealings.
