Swalwell appearing to 'facilitate' Hunter Biden to 'thumb nose at Congress' worth scrutiny: Turley
Swalwell told Politico the GOP is trying to use Hunter's addictions to hurt President Biden

The unique presence of Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., at Hunter Biden's news conference on the Senate side of the Capitol last week raises questions about whether he played a role in the first son defying the House subpoena, a top legal expert said.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told Fox News that Hunter Biden knowingly "thumbed his nose at Congress" in a display he called a "slam-dunk case of contempt."

However, more interestingly was the aspect that the space on the Senate side where Biden's press conference took place – presumably to avoid any potential intervention by House Sergeant-at-Arms William McFarland for defying a lawful subpoena – was reserved by Swalwell's office, he said.

House Oversight Committee member Eric Burlison, R-Mo., also said last week that McFarland should indeed pursue Biden, adding that the first son is "clearly in the city [of Washington]."

On "America Reports," anchor John Roberts said Swalwell was clearly acting as a "sherpa of sorts" for Hunter Biden's visit to the Hill.

Turley said there may not have been a crime committed by Swalwell even if Biden is probed for contempt, but that other repercussions could come at the discretion of the House.

"It certainly raises serious questions under the House rules. I've never seen anything quite like that," he said.
