Rep. James Comer (R-KY) the chairman of the House Oversight Committee is demanding that ranking member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) apologize for “spreading disinformation” about the evidence collected by the committee during its investigation of President Joe Biden.
“In the course of this investigation, you have been a spirited critic of the need to look into President Biden or his family. However, the Oversight Committee must not be used as a means to propagate false or deceptive information” Comer wrote in a letter to Raskin.
“The Committee requests that you formally correct the record and apologize to the American people for spreading disinformation about the evidence collected by the Committee during its investigation of President Biden,” he added.
Republicans have accused Biden of profiting off his son Hunter business dealings overseas and was improperly influenced by them while serving as vice-president. Despite months of investigation, they are still unable to find any evidence to support their allegations.
Raskin has been critical of the committee’s probe, saying they are investigating a “conspiracy theory” and called their purported evidence a “fairytale.”
