Hunter Biden Reneges on Request to Testify in Public Hearing After House Republicans Grant His Wish



President Joe Biden’s eldest son, Hunter Biden, has declined an offer from House Republicans to appear at a public hearing, contradicting his previous requests for such a hearing.

The decision was communicated on Wednesday by Biden’s attorney Abbe David Lowell, who conveyed his client’s opposition to the previously-sought after event in a letter acquired by The Daily Caller.

“Your blatant planned-for-media event is not a proper proceeding but an obvious attempt to throw a Hail Mary pass after the game has ended. Let me remind you of a statement you made about how witnesses—and specifically Mr. Biden—could satisfy your prior requests,” Abbe David Lowell wrote.

“At your press conference after the January 10, 2024, Committee hearing to hold Mr. Biden in contempt, you stated: ‘All we need are people to come in for the depositions and then we’ll be finished. We just need people to show up to the depositions and we’ll wrap this up. Nobody wants to wrap this up more than I do.’ Mr. Biden did just as you asked and, as you did when you announced that witnesses could choose depositions, you want to ignore what you said,” Lowell added.

Lowell insisted that a condition for Biden’s public hearing attendance was an investigation into former President Donald Trump’s family business dealings by the House Republicans.

A source informed the Daily Caller about the sequence of receiving the letter.

“We just received it. They gave it to Punchbowl before providing it to Congress,” the source familiar said.

In response to the letter, Comer accused Hunter Biden of avoiding transparency.

“The House Oversight Committee has called Hunter Biden’s bluff. Hunter Biden for months stated he wanted a public hearing, but now that one has been offered alongside his business associates that he worked with for years, he is refusing to come … The American people demand the truth and accountability for the Bidens’ corruption,” Comer stated.

The controversy roots back to a subpoena issued by the House Oversight Committee in November, aimed at scrutinizing Hunter Biden’s foreign business transactions. Despite this, Biden opted for a public statement outside the Capitol, diverging from the scheduled closed-door deposition.

During a deposition on February 28, Hunter Biden, repeated he “did not recall” specific details of his foreign business engagements. Yet, he firmly stated his father’s non-involvement.

“I am here today to provide the committees with the one uncontestable fact that should end the false premise of this inquiry: I did not involve my father in my business, not while I was a practicing lawyer, not in my investments or transactions, domestic or international, not as a board member, and not as an artist, never,” Hunter Biden remarked in his opening testimony.
