The House will transfer ahead in the course of the week of January 15 to carry Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress regardless of his supply to take a seat for a deposition if as soon as once more subpoenaed, committee chairmen mentioned Friday.
The denial of Hunter’s supply suggests House investigators don’t belief the president’s son. He and his legal professionals steadily interact in delay and public relations ways.
Hunter proposed on Friday to take a seat for a closed-door deposition if Congress reissued a subpoena, arguing the prior subpoenas “are legally invalid” as a result of the impeachment inquiry “did not yet exist when the subpoenas were issued.”
Hunter’s supply seemed to be one other public relations ploy to offer Attorney General Merrick Garland with a purpose to not prosecute him upon a profitable contempt vote.
The vote stays set for the week of January 15 regardless of Hunter’s supply, which the committee chairmen deemed one other delay tactic.
“For now, the House of Representatives will move forward with holding Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress until such time that Hunter Biden confirms a date to appear for a private deposition in accordance with his legal obligation,” House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) and House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) said Friday.
“While we will work to schedule a deposition date, we will not tolerate any additional stunts or delay from Hunter Biden. The American people will not tolerate, and the House will not provide, special treatment for the Biden family,” they defined:
House Republicans have been resolute in demanding Hunter Biden sit for a deposition within the ongoing impeachment inquiry. While we’re heartened that Hunter Biden now says he’ll adjust to a subpoena, make no mistake: Hunter Biden has already defied two legitimate, lawful subpoenas. Instead of showing for his deposition on December 13, 2023, Hunter Biden appeared on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol the place he made a public assertion with out taking any questions. Then this week on the Oversight Committee’s markup of his contempt decision, Hunter Biden pulled one other stunt as he continued to defy duly issued subpoenas.
