Fox News host Jesse Watters said he wants Republicans to open hearings on ‘the Biden crime family,’ while expressing disappointment with GOP investigations that have targeted Democrats so far .
House Republicans have launched politically charged subcommittees aimed at the supposed “militarization” of the federal government against conservatives, as well as addressing the origins of COVID-19, since they took control of the room in January.
Additional investigations into issues such as President Joe Biden’s handling of the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan, U.S.-Mexico border policies and the multiple allegations against his son Hunter Biden have yet to fully kick off.
Watters complained that Republican investigations had slowed during a Jesse Watters in prime time aired Friday night, while lamenting that Biden has worked more days this year than Congress.
“I love these guys, but I just checked the calendar and it’s already March,” Watters said. “Republicans have had the House since January. Why didn’t we have a hearing on the Biden crime family?”
The conservative pundit demanded that House Republicans hold hearings featuring witnesses ‘sweating under the bright lights,’ before a chyron appeared describing the GOP investigations that have taken place so far as “a nothing”.
Watters said he was disappointed that ‘all we got’ was an investigation into Republican Congressman George Santos’ ‘big stories’ and Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s famous ‘Eat the Rich’ dress. .
“I haven’t seen a single guy sweat under the bright lights,” Watters said. “Are we going to dig something? Are we going to see someone squirm and spit the truth, or at least plead the fifth or something so we can start flooding these morons with subpoenas?”
“Where are the bombs, have the investigations even started?” He continued. “If their schedule holds, it’s not even a part-time job…Biden has worked more days than Congress…I’m starting to lose my patience a bit.”
The Republican-led hearings held by the House Special Subcommittee on Federal Arming over the past month have ironically been criticized by Democrats for being politically motivated events that themselves attempt to “weaponize ” the government.
The credibility of Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan was cast into doubt by committee Democrats on Friday with the release of a more than 300-page report into the subcommittee and alleged ‘whistleblowers’. of the government who had been called to testify.
The investigation into the COVID-19 pandemic also presented embarrassing moments for Republicans, including Democratic Representative Jamie Raskin, pointing out that former President Donald Trump has repeatedly praised Chinese President Xi Jinping’s handling of the virus. before changing course.
Newsweek contacted the White House and Jordan’s office for comment.
