    Hunter Biden agrees to testify publicly before the House Oversight Committee

    Hunter Biden is open to testifying publicly before the Republican-led House Oversight Committee on Dec. 13, his lawyer said in a letter sent to the panel Tuesday.

    The president’s son was subpoenaed by House Republicans in early November and summoned to appear for a closed-door transcribed interview as part of an escalation of Republicans’ impeachment inquiry into the president.

    People who think they're slick generally can't hide that fact.

    Comer, Jordan threaten to hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress after he rejects subpoena for deposition
    Hunter Biden's attorney says the president's son would only testify at a public hearing

    {Brooke Singman | 06 December 2023}

    House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan are threatening to hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress, after the lawyer for the president’s son notified the panel that he will not appear to testify unless he can do so in a public setting.

    Comer, R-Ky., subpoenaed Hunter Biden to appear for a deposition on Dec. 13 behind closed doors.

    Biden's attorney, Abbe Lowell, last week, notified the committee that the president’s son wanted to testify in a public hearing instead.

    Comer and Jordan, R-Ohio, last week said Hunter Biden would not receive special treatment and was compelled to appear for a closed-door deposition. They vowed to release the transcript of his testimony shortly after it took place and vowed to schedule a public hearing at a later date.

    Lowell on Wednesday sent a letter to Comer, saying Hunter Biden will only appear for testimony in a public hearing setting.

    "Mr. Biden has offered to appear at a hearing on the December 13, 2023, date you have reserved, or another date this month, to answer any question pertinent and relevant to the subject matter," Lowell wrote.

    "He is making this choice because the Committee has demonstrated time and time again it uses closed-door sessions to manipulate, even distort, the facts and misinform the American public — a hearing would ensure transparency and truth in these proceedings," Lowell said. "We look forward to working out the schedule."

    Comer and Jordan replied, threatening to hold the president’s son in contempt.

    "On November 8, 2023, we issued subpoenas to your client, Robert Hunter Biden, for a deposition on December 13, 2023," they wrote.

    "Contrary to the assertions in your letter, there is no ‘choice’ for Mr. Biden to make; the subpoenas compel him to appear for a deposition on December 13," Comer and Jordan wrote.

    "If Mr. Biden does not appear for his deposition on December 13, 2023, the Committees will initiate contempt of Congress proceedings," they wrote.

    House Oversight Committee ranking member Jamie Raskin, D-Md., blasted Republicans.

    "Hunter Biden will answer questions under oath in front of the world—but unless he testifies in secret so he can be misquoted, @RepJamesComer will hold him in contempt?" Raskin posted to X. "What a joke."

    He added: "Jim Jordan blew off HIS subpoena. Comer doesn’t want the truth—and can’t handle it."
