(PartiallyPolitics.com) – The GOP’s attempts to impeach President Biden are central in the House Oversight Committee’s efforts and the partisan conflicts have pointed out that there is a disagreement among the panel’s leaders as they continue with what has widely been considered to be a proxy war between former President Donald Trump and President Biden.
Jamie Comer (R-Ky.) the chairman of the House Oversight Committee has been going against Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), a ranking member of the Committee. The probe has led to Comer becoming known on the national stage, and the GOP members have been using the spotlight to highlight his story growing up in rural Kentucky in a family of bankers.
In a recent interview with The Hill, Comer had noted that he was an average guy who had backing in finances and business and that he was not a lawyer. He added that this was the reason that he did not provide extensive details about the impeachment. However, what he did point out is that he is capable of following money.
The 51-year-old is the chair of a committee that includes some of the most right-leaning Republican lawmakers. In his role, he has often clashed with Raskin, who is a Harvard-educated former constitutional law professor. Raskin has for his part often blasted the Republicans over their claims and has attacked the party’s dynamics.
In his own interview with The Hill, Raskin argued that he had been a constitutional law professor for over two decades and that he has devoted his life to defending the U.S. Constitution.
