Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) has a brand new conspiracy idea about Hunter Biden, however he couldn’t get CNN’s Jake Tapper to take it critically throughout an interview Friday.

Actually, Tapper mocked the Kentucky congressman to his face.

The president’s son was indicted Thursday on 9 tax expenses in California, and Comer, the Home Oversight Committee chair, appeared on CNN the subsequent day to debate the matter.

Though Biden may face critical time behind bars if convicted, Comer dubiously claimed the felony expenses have been truly a part of a cover-up designed to throw off his investigation into unproven allegations across the Biden household’s supposedly shady monetary dealings.

Comer stated not one of the crimes that Hunter Biden was accused of handled issues his committee is investigating, after which steered that particular counsel David Weiss indicted the president’s son “to guard him from having to be deposed within the Home Oversight Committee [next week].”

Tapper’s eyebrows raised over that idea, and he couldn’t assist however mock it to Comer straight.

“He indicted him to guard him?” Tapper requested, earlier than sarcastically including, “The traditional rubric, I bought it.”

Comer stated the entire Biden story has been a few cover-up, however Tapper went again to Comer’s earlier, considerably contradictory assertion.

“That’s why [Weiss] indicted him, to guard him? To cowl it up?” Tapper requested incredulously.

Comer responded, “Look, you indict him on the least little factor, the gun cost and never paying taxes,” earlier than Tapper identified why the speculation sounded ridiculous.

″[Biden’s] going through like 17 extra years in jail! These are felonies!” Tapper stated.

“Yeah, however take a look at what he’s completed! Anyone else in America would already be in jail,” Comer stated.

You’ll be able to see their change — and Tapper’s response — within the video beneath.

Tapper’s snark continued when he grilled Comer on why he gained’t let Biden testify earlier than his committee in public, a proposal he made beforehand.

“Why not simply soar on the alternative to grill Hunter Biden on nationwide tv?” Tapper requested. “Right here’s your likelihood, you understand? You’re the canine that caught the bus. Right here it’s!”

Comer claimed his investigation wasn’t about politics or theater, to which Tapper chuckled.

The CNN anchor’s response to Comer’s very doubtful idea didn’t go unnoticed on X, previously referred to as Twitter.

Some commented that Comer most likely wasn’t used to being fact-checked, since he tends to solely do interviews with conservative media.

I’m amazed Comer ventured out of the protected cocoon of Fox and Newsmax “interviews.” He’s too damned dumb to take questions from precise media.
