House Republican Makes EXPLOSIVE Accusation Against Comer and Jordan, Says They Were Warned' Ex-Informant's Claim Was Uncorroborated " But Touted It Anyway
Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) made a serious allegation on Wednesday night, telling CNN that Rep. James Comer (R-KY) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) were warned that a former FBI informant whose claims they publicly repeated could not be corroborated. ... Appearing on CNN's The Source, Buck, who serves on the House Judiciary Committee that Jordan chairs, said Jordan and Comer " the House Oversight Committee chair " were warned about the ex- informant's claim being incorroborated. Comer's committee has been the primary driver behind the impeachment efforts against Biden and the chairman has appeared on Fox News hundreds of times where he has made increasingly incendiary charges, up to and including the claim that Biden engaged in bribery as vice president.

COLLINS: Looking at what you said last September, you were condemning your own party's impeachment efforts, saying that "Republicans in the House who are itching for an impeachment are relying on an imagined history." Did you ever think that it would collapse and this spectacular of a fashion

BUCK: Well, Kaitlan, it's even more of an imagined history now. Obviously, this witness " and we were warned at the time that we received the document outlining this witness's testimony " we were warned that the credibility of this statement was not known.

And yet people, my colleagues went out and talk to the public about how this was credible and how it was damning and how it proved President Biden's " at the time Vice President Biden's " complicity in receiving bribes. It appears to absolutely be false and to really undercut the nature of the charges. We've always been looking for a link between what Hunter Biden received in terms of money and Joe Biden's activities or Joe Biden receiving money. This clearly is not a credible link at this point.

COLLINS: So, James Comer and Jim Jordan " they knew that this was not corroborated information, yet they still went public with it, talked about it on television, used it to fuel these investigations regardless?

BUCK: That's what it appears. I certainly didn't have any evidence outside the statement itself that it was credible. And as a prosecutor for 25 years, Kaitlan, I never went to the public until I could prove the reliability of a statement. And even then, the only one public statement a prosecutor makes is the charging document. Let's see what the evidence is in this impeachment, if there is more evidence before going forward.

Mark ----- said something like "It's easier to dupe someone than it is to convince that they've been duped." That's a fundamental problem with MAGAts.
