Rep. Jasmine Crockett Challenges GOP’s Impeachment Pursuit with Sharp Critique

In a charged session on Capitol Hill, Representative Jasmine Crockett (D-Texas) delivered a scathing rebuke to Representative James Comer (R-Ky.) and House Republicans for their fervent pursuit of an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, raising poignant concerns about the lack of substantive evidence to substantiate such a consequential move.

She then highlighted, “The previous speaker said, ‘Oh no, we don’t need a vote. We don’t need a vote on the impeachment inquiry.’ So now, all of a sudden, you do need a vote? Tell me, what’s changed?”

Beyond the hallowed halls of Congress, Crockett continued her critique, accusing Comer of “saying the quiet part out loud.” She seized upon the contentious issue of Hunter Biden’s defiance of a subpoena from House Republicans, skillfully weaving it into her narrative of the GOP’s selective vocalization.

“The president’s son knocked the GOP’s demand for a private deposition, calling for transparency so Americans can see Republicans’ ‘tactics’ to ‘expose their baseless inquiry’ in order to hear what he has to say,” pointed out Crockett.

“Now he goes out on Faux News and everybody else, and he has a lot to say,” she remarked. “He decided that he wanted to go on the news and he wanted to say that he didn’t want Hunter Biden to testify publicly because… he didn’t want us to have an opportunity to engage in questioning. Now you tell me if that’s what democracy looks like.”
