There is nothing surprising. But since a senior member of the US House Oversight and Reform Committee said this on Wednesday, it needs to be repeated.
Rep. James Comer, a Republican from Kentucky, said Washington Times (via TheHill.com) that the commanders’ investigation will endif the Republicans regain control of the House of Representatives in November.
Comer called the investigation a waste of tax dollars and not a priority for Republican members of Congress.
“Democrats know that the outcome of the midterm elections is not favorable for them,” Comer said. once. “Whether it’s the investigation of the Washington football team, or whatever investigation they’re running against any of the oil executives, they should probably focus on getting it done by December 31st.”
This is one of the basic realities of our currently dysfunctional political system. There is no bipartisan action. One side believes in regulation and accountability of private business when needed. The other side believes that this is rarely, if ever, necessary.
Comer’s comments came at a time when the Committee was unable to serve a subpoena on Commands owner Daniel Snyder. If he is willing to sail international waters on his superyacht for six months, the subpoena may never be served.
