In a recent episode of "Meet the Press NOW," James Comer, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, engaged in a heated debate with NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Ryan Nobles.

The contention centered around allegations of an "influence peddling" scheme involving the Biden family.

Nobles challenged Comer to substantiate the "influence peddling" claim, arguing that the financial transactions between Hunter Biden and his father were merely "interest-free loans." Comer, however, disputed this interpretation.

"You say there's evidence proving it's a loan," Comer retorted. "I’ve never seen evidence that proves it’s a loan. I’m from a banking background. If I loan you $250,000 and then you pay me back $250,000, then I should have a check to you for $250,000. Am I wrong about that?"

Nobles countered, asserting the existence of bank records that demonstrated the flow of money from one account to another. Comer, however, dismissed this as mere regurgitation of the Biden administration's narrative.

"That’s not true. I’m sorry, but that is not true," Comer contested. "You’re not providing factual information: you’re providing talking points from the White House and the Biden legal team."

As the debate over the alleged Biden family bank records continued, Comer accused Nobles of lacking financial acumen. "You don’t understand," Comer stated.

"It’s like you’re financially illiterate. You look like a smart guy on TV. Listen, I’m a banker. I’ve been involved in a bank board for a long time. The money that the Bidens paid Joe Biden back with came from influence peddling."

Nobles later suggested that much of the controversy was based on "innuendo and suggestion," to which Comer retorted, "Bank records don't lie."

In the wake of this contentious exchange, it has been revealed that House Republican leaders are planning to hold a vote next week on a measure to formally initiate an impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

This development follows Comer's release of subpoenaed bank records showing that an entity owned by Hunter Biden made "direct monthly payments to Joe Biden."

"This wasn’t a payment from Hunter Biden’s personal account but an account for his corporation that received payments from China and other shady corners of the world," Comer stated in a video message on Monday.
