MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan brought into serious question on Thursday whether he lives in an alternate reality or not when he claimed that House Democrats never investigated the Trump family when they held the majority.
The investigations into former President Trump and his family have been nonstop for years. Hasan’s revisionist ploy was thoroughly dragged on social media and he was excoriated for either being clueless or gaslighting for a political agenda.
On Thursday, after Republicans won back the majority in the House, Reps. James Comer (R-Ky.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) announced via a press conference that they would be opening an investigation into the extent of President Biden’s involvement in his son, Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
Comer, citing whistleblowers, claimed that the Biden family “flourished and became millionaires by simply offering access to the family.”
“Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden’s business deals, and is he compromised? That’s our investigation,” he declared.

“The Mehdi Hasan Show” host savaged the looming investigation into the Biden family and made the outrageous claim that House Democrats “didn’t do this for the Trump family,” while taking a swing at outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for allegedly not doing so.
“Be as mad as you like about House Republicans kicking off day one after winning the House with a massive investigation into the Biden family but also ask yourself why House Democrats didn’t do this for *the Trump family*. Ask yourself this on the day Pelosi is retiring btw,” Hasan tweeted.

Since Trump was elected in 2016, a number of organizations and agencies, including House Committees led by Democrats, have launched investigations or probes into the former president and it has extended to Trump’s family members as well.
In 2018, House Oversight Committee Democrats announced a probe into his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, for use of private email accounts for official White House business. They were subpoenaed in 2019. The Oversight Committee also investigated the couple’s security clearances. That’s just one of many, many examples of vengeful investigations conducted against the Trump family.
Twitter erupted after the statement by Hasan went viral. Many pointed out that not only did the House Democrats go after Trump and his family, but a number of federal agencies did also as well.
Oklahoma State Sen. Nathan Dahm snarked, “You could ‘ask yourself why’ or you could do a quick internet search to discover that House Democrats DID this for the Trump family. If only there was a group of people who’s job it was to report such facts to the people…once again fake news proving they are enemy of the people.”

“Uh, Mehdi? The Democrats most certainly investigated Trump’s family. Just like today, it was the first thing they embarked on after gaining power after the 2018 midterms. Sorry you missed it all…” Townhall.com columnist Brad Slager tweeted.
Others piled on, spanking Hasan for the claim:
Because they spent the entire last two years investigating Trump.

Hilarious. Guy works for the network reporting on the investigation that included the Trump family, and he acts like it didn’t happen.
