James Comer must resign from Congress.

Rep. Eric Swalwell @RepSwalwell
James Comer must resign from Congress. For the last two years he has done the work of Russia’s intelligence services to falsely attack President Biden. There must be accountability.





..and he should be investigated as to his knowledge of where this information was coming from.

I call him a Russian agent, not a dupe. He should be made to explain why he believes he's not one.

if the situation were reversed? We have to start raising holy fucking hell when these MFs fuck up, especially at this magnitude. There needs to be hearings, votes to boot, etc.

Basically, we have to reset and change the culture that has lead to the FBI only fearing, respecting and deferring to republican lawmakers. Both sides should be treated equally.

They have fight & spirit!

Things were different last century, before the repubs totally lost their mind & their way, when you could actually negotiate with them, before Gingrich poisoned everything. Bastards that they were they at least lived in the same realm of reality we did. Now? These people are nuts. Dangerous nuts. It's gotta be hard watching people you worked with for 40 years kiss the ring of the likes of Trump.

Lindsey Graham, what the GD fuck happened to you?

on edit: I read Biden told his campaign to start using the whackadoodle crap Trump say in more ads. It's about time.

How big a majority could we get? Would a solid Dem majority refuse to seat certain GQP members in 2025? There is the 2/3 rule. Those denied a seat would have to petition Congress for an up or down vote with 2/3 required to remove their "disability" as the Constitution states. Giving aid to the enemy is a thing.

on the floor how much contact Comer has had with Russians. It also needs to be addressed how many contacts with others in the Russian sphere of influence he has had. Maybe line up Jordan and a few others in that line of questioning.

Wed Feb 21, 2024, 10:59 AM
Feb 2024

Hey Merrick Garland, Mr. Special Counsel. how about appointing a special counsel to investigate the Comer investigation?

While you are at it you must appoint a special counsel who was appointed by a Democrat in the spirit of being non-partisan.

This 5 year investigation of Hunter Biden smells to high heaven, maybe Christopher Wray needs to be investigated, how could this Smirnov Russian agent be an FBI informant since 2010?

Calling for Comer to resign is not enough, and while Garland is at it, investigate Comer's shell company, maybe Russia is laundering money through it.

House Democrats need to hold a press conference on the steps of the Capitol where they state that the entire impeachment charade has been proven to be a Russian spy operation from the start and they will no longer be participating in any way, shape or form with any "impeachment inquiry" if the House GOPers insist on continuing. State that they will stand up and walk out of any future hearings. Also, all should sign a letter to Merrick Garland insisting on a Special Counsel to investigate Comer's and other's connections to this individual whom they were getting fake information from.

The rest of the district is deeply red. He will be primaried if he strays off the path. I have no clue if there is a viable Democrat on the horizon,
