Democrats are encouraging Republicans to impeach Pres. Joe Biden, because they think it’ll help them at the ballot box, but they’re underestimating the seriousness of the charges, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) said Thursday.

“They’re egging us on, because history has shown that, when Clinton was impeached, the Republicans lost the majority and, when Trump was impeached, the Democrats lost the majority,” Rep. Comer said in an interview on Fox News Channel.

But, there’s a difference between former Pres. Bill Clinton lying about having an affair or former Pres. Donald Trump making a phone call to Ukraine, Comer explained.

In Biden’s case, “He’s lied countless times about his knowledge and involvement in what is a major corruption story,” Comer said:

“This is the biggest corruption story that we’ve ever seen from a high-ranking politician, in the history of America.

“I mean, we’ve got a president whose family is selling access to him – to bad people in bad countries.

“And now, we’re finding results of where he has done things to benefit these bad people, like when he fired the prosecutor, Shokin in Ukraine, because the prosecutor was investigating his son for corruption.”

“So, this is very serious and this is not like any other type of impeachment that, I think, our country has seen before,” Comer concluded.
