Hunter Biden Agrees To Testify Publicly Before House Oversight Committee

The president’s son was subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee earlier this month.

Hunter Biden is agreeing to testify publicly before the House Oversight Committee on Dec. 13, his lawyer said in a letter Tuesday.

The president’s son was subpoenaed by Chairman James Comer of the House Oversight Committee earlier this month. In the letter, Biden’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, accused Comer of leaking information from closed-door depositions with other witnesses in his ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

“We have seen you use closed-door sessions to manipulate, even distort the facts and misinform the public,” Lowell wrote to Comer. “We therefore propose opening the door.”

“Your empty investigation has gone on too long wasting too many better-used resources. It should come to an end,” Lowell continued. “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.”

Comer responded to Lowell’s letter in a Tuesday morning statement posted to X, accusing Hunter Biden of trying to play games.

“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,” he wrote.

“Our lawfully issued subpoena to Hunter Biden requires him to appear for a deposition on December 13,” he said. “We expect full cooperation with our subpoena for a deposition but also agree that Hunter Biden should have [an] opportunity to testify in a public setting at a future date.”

Lowell called the subpoenas a “political stunt” earlier this month but added Hunter Biden “is eager to have the opportunity, in a public forum and at the right time, to discuss these matters with the Committee.”

Comer’s impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden has been marked by questions and criticism from both Democrats and Republicans with both sides saying the committee has still not produced sufficient evidence for impeachment despite a year-long investigation.

“Your Committee has been working for almost a year—without success—to tie our client’s business activities to his father. You state that one of your purposes is to review how a President’s family’s business activities raise ethics and disclosure concerns to inform the basis for a legislative solution,” Lowell wrote.
