‘Like a 007 Movie’: House Democrat tears Republicans apart for working with a ‘villain’


Rep. Jared Moskowitz (D-Fla.) condemned Republicans on the House Oversight Committee for collaborating with “bad guy” Gal Luft, Rep. James Comer’s (R-Ky.) “missing” witness in his investigations into the Biden family and a man Federal prosecutors accused him of being involved in “a number of international criminal activities”.

Luft, a dual American-Israeli citizen, faces charges is linked to an eight-count indictment uncovered earlier this week alleging he acted as an unregistered foreign agent for the Chinese government.

Moskowitz indicated Thursday that Republicans are focused on the Defense Department inability to pass an audit before asking for the results of an “audit” by the House Oversight Committee.

“Oh wait, I have this review from this committee – actually it’s in the form of an indictment. It’s a Justice Department indictment because that committee focuses on working with foreign agents, right?” he said.

“You want to talk about national security? That’s why you’re here. It’s about national security, but the main committee is working with an accused Chinese agent who does business with the Iranian regime and is an illegal arms dealer to Libya.”

He added: “All this to own Hunter Biden. That’s how far they’ve stooped. This indictment reads like a 007 movie except they work with the villain.”

Moskowitz’s comments follow a letter from Reps. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) and Dan Goldman (DN.Y.) to Comer, in which they expressed concern that the committee was “manipulated by an apparent fraudster.”

The Florida Democrat announced on Wednesday that he had sent letters to chairmen of three congressional committees investigating Luft and his ties to members of the House Oversight Committee.

“It’s amazing that the Chairman [Comer] still wants to get testimony from someone with so little credibility so the GOP can continue to push crazy theories to influence the 2024 election,” Moskowitz said in a statement.
