House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) recently revealed that he quit appearing for interviews with Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” because of co-host Peter Doocy.

Comer recently sat down for an interview with Newsmax host Eric Boiling, who shared a clip of Doocy saying that the Kentucky congressman doesn’t have sufficient evidence to impeach President Joe Biden. For months, House Republicans have investigated the president’s corrupt, shady finances.
While speaking with Comer about the House GOP’s efforts to impeach Biden, Boiling said, “Forget the Democrats like Dan Goldman who say there’s no evidence. My concern is where the media, especially the conservative media, starts siding with the Bidens. Listen to Steve Doocy over at Fox saying you don’t have the evidence.”
The clip showed Doocy claiming that Republicans don’t have adequate evidence to accuse Biden and his family of corruption.
“They’ve connected the dots, the Department of Justice did on Hunter, but they have not shown where Joe Biden, you know, did anything illegally,” the Fox News co-host said.
Comer responded, “Well, I think we’ve done a pretty good job connecting the dots. We’ve traced two checks from influence peddling schemes going directly into Joe Biden’s pocket.”
Boiling then asked Comer why he thought Doocy would say that House Republicans’ hard work in the investigation of the president was all for nothing.
“He’s had that position from the very beginning. I’ve quit going on Fox & Friends because of Doocy, you know? I mean, he’s the one guy on Fox that’s been very critical of the investigation,” the Kentucky lawmaker told Boiling.
“I have my theory why, and we’ll talk about that at a later point, but at the end of the day, he’s entitled to his opinion, but I don’t think the average viewer of Fox News agrees with Doocy one bit,” he added.
House Republicans recently voted to authorize their impeachment inquiry into Biden. All 221 Republicans voted in favor of the measure, while all Democrats opposed it.
House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) said the move was not based on politics and that House Republicans have not determined whether to draft articles of impeachment against Biden.
