Interviews with: Rep. James Comer, Rep. Jamie Raskin
State of the Union
Jan 15, 2023

First, Jake presses Republican House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer about why he wants to investigate Biden’s potential mishandling of classified documents but says investigating Trump is “not a priority.” Also, with the U-S facing a risk of a default this summer, Jake asks what will be done in a GOP-led House to avoid an economic catastrophe.

Next, the top Democrat on the Oversight Committee, Rep. Jamie Raskin, responds to Rep. Comer and contrasts Biden’s approach to the Justice Department documents investigation to Trump’s.

Finally, our panel analyzes the latest developments on the special counsel probes and discuss the House’s contingency plan in case of a debt default. Today’s panel includes Democratic Rep. Ro Khanna, CNN Political Commentators Scott Jennings and Ashley Allison, and former Trump White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews.
