The Hunter Biden dealings have been going on for a while. And Hunter thinks he will get away with things.
However, the House Committee has now threatened sweeping actions against Hunter.
In a stunning display of defiance, Hunter Biden has rejected the House Oversight and Judiciary Committee’s subpoena to appear for a deposition on December 13th.
This blatant disregard for Congressional authority has sparked outrage among Republican lawmakers, who are now threatening Hunter with contempt of Congress proceedings.
The Committee, led by Chairmen James Comer issued a scathing letter to Hunter’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, leaving no room for ambiguity.
They declared, “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 13th.”
The letter further warned of the consequences of noncompliance, stating, “If Mr. Biden does not appear for his deposition on December 13, 2023, the Committees will initiate contempt of Congress proceedings.”
This stark warning emphasizes the seriousness with which the Committees view Hunter’s defiance.
Lowell, in a previous letter, had expressed Hunter’s willingness to cooperate, but only under certain conditions.
He demanded a public hearing before the Oversight and Accountability Committee, claiming that a closed-door deposition would be “cloaked” and “one-sided.”
However, the Committees have rejected this demand, citing the sensitive nature of the investigation.
They argue that a public hearing could compromise ongoing investigations and jeopardize the privacy of witnesses.
This standoff between Hunter and the House Committees raises several critical questions. What is Hunter trying to hide by refusing a private deposition?
Does his insistence on a public hearing suggest he has something advantageous to disclose or is it simply a calculated attempt to manipulate the narrative?
Beyond these immediate concerns, this episode sheds light on a larger issue: the Biden administration’s obvious lack of transparency and accountability.
This incident further fuels the growing suspicion that the Biden family has engaged in unethical and potentially illegal activities.
Republicans are now demanding swift action from the House. They are calling on Speaker Johnson to initiate contempt proceedings against Hunter Biden, holding him accountable for his defiance and ensuring that he answers for his actions.
The coming days will be crucial as this drama unfolds. Will Hunter cave under the pressure and finally comply with the subpoena?
Or will he continue to stonewall the Committees, further deepening the suspicions surrounding his business dealings and potentially jeopardizing his father’s political future?
One thing is certain: the American people deserve answers. The House has a duty to investigate Hunter Biden’s activities and expose the truth, regardless of the political implications.
The outcome of this battle will have significant consequences for the Biden administration and the country as a whole.
