Rep. Jim Comer Shares Reason Hunter’s Whistle Blower Is Testifying – Watch
Rep. Jim Comer (R-KY), the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, said on Tuesday that the Hunter Biden whistleblower is “disgusted” by the Democrats and the liberal media for their handling of the investigation into his laptop.
Comer made the comments during an interview on Fox News, where he said that the whistleblower had reached out to him and expressed his frustration with the way the Democrats have been trying to suppress the story. He said the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) agent, who is being called “Whistleblower X,” will be identified at an oversight panel hearing scheduled for Wednesday.
“I think the way they treated the first propelled the second to come forward,” Comer said. “I think they’re disgusted at how the Democrat Party and the liberal media has treated the first whistleblower. These are respected IRS agents who have always done the right thing and who operate by the book. He’s disgusted by the fact that they’ve tried to cover up this story and they’ve tried to discredit him.”
Comer said that the whistleblower is a credible source and that his allegations should be taken seriously. He also said that the whistleblower is willing to testify before Congress, but that the Democrats have been blocking his testimony.
The Democrat Party “always claims they protect federal employees” unless these officials are “blowing the whistle on one of them,” Comer said. Although he acknowledged some people who claim to be whistleblowers are “not credible or they’re just simply disgruntled employees,” Comer insisted that the IRS whistleblowers “have spotless records” and deserve to be heard.
“The whistleblower is willing to testify, but the Democrats have refused to allow him to do so,” Comer said. “They’re afraid of what he has to say.”
Comer said that the Democrats’ handling of the story is “a disgrace.” He said that the Democrats are “more interested in protecting their own political interests than they are in getting to the truth.”
