Only in the surreal Fox universe can James Comer be treated as credible

The first jarring line offered by Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) during his conversation with Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business on Thursday morning was his declaration that he believed that the impeachment inquiry he’s helping to lead into President Biden was “hopefully in the final stages.”

That inquiry, initiated in September, has been reportedly in its final stages since January. Or, rather, since December. Or, really, since November. It has been in its final stages for longer than it was ever not in its final stages for the simple reason that Comer and his colleagues keep pushing things out in hopes that they can wrap things up with some credible point of success. But credible successes have eluded them. The probe, instead, has only offered a surfeit of oversteps and embarrassments.
