Fox News host Jesse Watters is frustrated with the fact that it appears no matter what people do against conservatives there is rarely punishment. During a segment on Fox News, Watters went nuclear on the lack of Democrat bureaucrats and officeholders who have been arrested.
The panel discussed a hearing on the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government as Republicans want to prove that the government has been targeting conservatives.
A fed-up Watters did not hold back and demanded Republicans actually “do something.”
“And no one’s even talking about it! You wanna know why? Because everybody already knows that! Everybody already knows all of this stuff! So, what is the endgame here? We get screwed, then we have a hearing. Nothing happens. We get screwed again. We have a hearing. Nothing happens.”
“So, we have an FBI dictatorship here. You either fire him and die or you can’t touch him and you still die. I’m sick of these hearings,” Watters said. “Make me feel better, guys. Tell me this is going somewhere. Can I throw someone in prison? Can someone go to jail, Can someone get fined?”
“Just very quickly,” his Democrat co-host Jessica Tarlov said. “You guys got the Durham investigation, which was supposed to blow the lid off–”
“Exactly!” Watters interrupted.
“–and it ended up with nothing because there is nothing,” Tarlov said.
“Stop!” Watters said. “You guys admitted you planted the [Steele] dossier!”
“What?!” Tarlov said.
“You admitted you framed him as a traitor and you want to investigate our investigation? We’re investigating the investigators!” he said.
“We don’t live in the same world. It’s just crazy,” the liberal co-host said.
“Exactly, your world’s fake,” Watters insisted.
“My world is winning,” Tarlov said.
“We’re following the facts!” Watters said.
“We are winning,” Tarlov needled.
“You guys are corrupt. You robbed my vote!” Watters said before co-host Greg Gutfeld said, “This is the best” and Tarlov shouted, “You voted in New York!”
“What are you talking about?! Go to break! Judge, tell ’em to go to break!” a frustrated Watters said to end the segment.
House Republicans were just given access to President Joe Biden’s banking documents which may include transactions from his son Hunter Biden, Fox News reported.
House Oversight Committee Chairman and Tennessee Rep. James Comer made the announcement when he spoke to Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday.
“We just got word that Treasury said they will give us access,” the representative said.
The Biden administration has yet to confirm such a move. News of the agreement came hours after Comer’s Oversight Committee subpoenaed more bank records from the Bank of America earlier Monday. The subpoenas targeted ‘all financial records’ from three of Hunter Biden’s business associates dating from Jan. 20, 2009, to the present,” Fox News reported.
“The Oversight Committee has subpoenaed and obtained financial records related to the Biden family’s influence peddling,” a committee spokesperson told Fox News Digital. “These documents solidify our understanding of several areas of concern and have opened new avenues of investigation about the Biden family’s business schemes.”
Comer said that members of his panel have finally received documents they say show how the Biden family has been getting money from Communist China, a country considered to be the primary rival to U.S. global supremacy for the foreseeable future.
“We are finally having people cooperate with us,” Comer told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. “I think we all know the Biden administration is stonewalling, Janet Yellen is stonewalling, not turning over the bank violations. But fortunately, since we’ve last spoken, we actually have bank records in hand.”
“We have individuals who are working with our committee,” Comer continued. “In the last two weeks, we’ve met with either these individuals personally or with their attorneys and that would be four individuals who had ties in with the Biden family on their various schemes around the world.”
“So now we have in-hand documents that show just exactly how the Biden family was getting money from the Chinese Communist Party,” he added.
“And, and I’ll tell you, it’s as bad as we thought, Maria,” he said. “It’s very concerning. And, in a way, I, I’m kind of glad that the, the Biden attorney, Abbe Lowell, and the Biden administration’s been stonewalling us because when I requested that information two weeks ago versus today because of what we have in hand now we have a lot stronger case in court for why we need these documents that the Biden family’s withholding and that the government’s withholding.”
“Tell me about the bank records. Mr. Chairman, what have you learned from these bank records that you’ve gotten?” Bartiromo asked at one point. “These are Hunter Biden’s bank records.”
“These are people with the different businesses, so to speak that the Biden family w was involved in with respect to in this instance, China,” Comer said. “And what it appears is there were a lot of transfers from account to account to account many transfers on the same day. That’s probably one reason they received so many suspicious activity reports, which are the bank violations from the banks.”
“The banks would look at this like, well, they must be laundering money or something,” he continued. “I don’t necessarily think they were laundering money, Maria. It looks to me like they were trying to hide the source of that money and the source was the Chinese Communist Party.”

“So my question to the Bidens, when I get that opportunity, is if you’re conducting legitimate business activities, why so many transfers?” he asked. “Why, why were you trying to hide the source of that money?”
