House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer revealed that the GOP may assume unproven allegations against Hunter Biden, as he refuses to testify behind closed doors.

The committee’s investigation aims to ban influence peddling, but doubts within the GOP are growing about a successful impeachment vote.

Despite the yearlong probe, no evidence has been found to prove Joe Biden’s involvement in his son’s foreign business dealings.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, said, “Well, I mean, if he doesn’t show up, then I guess we’ll just have to wrap it up without him and assume that these were bribes from foreign countries.”

“I would vote to impeach him, but I’m not going to lose any sleep whether he gets impeached or not because we know the Senate’s not going to convict,” he continued.

“My job was never to impeach,” added the chairman.

“We are prepared to issue subpoenas compelling Mr. Biden’s appearance at a deposition on a new date in the coming weeks” wrote Comer to Hunter Biden’s attorney.

“Our willingness to issue these subpoenas is rooted entirely in our interest in obtaining Mr. Biden’s testimony as expeditiously as possible,” the letter continued.

“Well, the hearing for the media would be more entertainment than substantive,” said Rep. Comer.

“The deposition is substantive,” he explained.

Republicans believe the investigation tarnishes Biden’s standing, while Democrats lack evidence of illegal activity.

“He and his Republican colleagues aren’t interested in getting any answers,” said a spokesperson for Hunter Biden.

“They’d rather keep peddling lies and innuendo to keep this farce of an investigation going because hearing from Hunter would put it to an end,” they continued.

Rep. Jared Moskowitz said, “His goal is to impeach the president.”

“What he’s admitting is what a lot of other Republicans have said, which is, well, so long as they see that this charade, what they’re doing up here is hurting the President’s poll numbers, they’re going to continue to do that,” continued the Democrat.

Moskowitz said, “I have no beef with the chairman. I’m just trying to hold him accountable,” after being criticized by Comer.

Doubts within the GOP are increasing about the potential for a successful impeachment vote.

Rep. Garret Graves said, “I think in order to get the Republican conference to impeach the president, I think that you’ve got an extraordinary amount of groundwork that would have to be laid that is not there right now. Said another way, the votes aren’t there right now.”

Rep. Troy Nehls said, “I think it should go to the House floor for a vote, but I don’t know if we have the will to do it. I don’t know if it would pass, quite honestly,” Nehls said.

“Nobody wants to wrap this up more than I do,” said Rep. Comer to the media following the hearing.
