Hunter Biden Only Willing To Testify Public Before Congress 

Hunter Biden signified this week that he will not cooperate with the House Oversight Committee’s Investigation unless he is allowed to testify Publicly.

Hunter Biden is set to testify before the committee on Dec. 13, after House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) subpoenaed the first son. Comer previously revealed that Hunter’s Uncle, James Bien, was willing to cooperate with his committee’s investigations. However, a letter to Comer from Abbe Lowell —Hunter Biden’s lawyer— signifies the first son might not cooperate after all 

“Mr. Chairman, we take you up on your offer. Accordingly, our client will get right to it by agreeing to answer any pertinent and relevant question you or your colleagues might have, but— rather than subscribing to your cloaked, one-sided process—he will appear at a public Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing,” Abbe’s letter reads. “To quote your November 8, 2023, letter accompanying the subpoena, “Given your client’s willingness to address this investigation publicly up to this point, we would expect him to be willing to testify before Congress.” He is, Mr. Chairman. A public proceeding would prevent selective leaks, manipulated transcripts, doctored exhibits, or one-sided press statements. Your empty investigation has gone on too long wasting too many better-used resources. It should come to an end. Consequently, Mr. Biden will appear at such a public hearing on the date you noticed, December 13, or any date in December that we can arrange. From all the individuals you have requested depositions or interviews, all you will learn is that your accusations are baseless. However, the American people should see that for themselves.”

The House Oversight Committee hit back at the letter, claiming the first son was trying to play by his own rules.  

“Hunter Biden is trying to play by his own rules instead of following the rules required of everyone else. That won’t stand with House Republicans,” the committee said in a statement. “Our lawfully issued subpoena to Hunter Biden requires him to appear for a deposition on December 13. We expect full cooperation with our subpoena for a deposition but also agree that Hunter Biden should have the opportunity to testify in a public setting at a future date.”
