Joe Biden impeachment inquiry: GOP probes whether president helped Hunter defy subpoena
by Ashley Oliver, Justice Department Reporter
December 27, 2023 02:50 PM


House Republicans are seeking information from President Joe Biden's counsel about whether the president knew in advance that his son Hunter Biden planned to defy a congressional subpoena this month.

Reps. James Comer (R-KY) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) asked White House counsel Ed Siskel on Wednesday to provide them with any communications Joe Biden had with his son or his son's defense attorneys related to the subpoena.

"We are compelled to examine as part of our impeachment inquiry whether the President engaged in a conspiracy to obstruct a proceeding of Congress," the congressmen wrote in their letter.

They cited comments White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made when asked on Dec. 13 about the deposition. Hunter Biden did not appear for the closed-door proceeding that was scheduled for that day and instead delivered a speech outside the U.S. Capitol, during which he reiterated his stance that he is only willing to appear for a public hearing.

Joe Biden was “certainly familiar with what his son was going to say” that day, Jean-Pierre told reporters.

NBC’s Nobles: GOP Doesn’t Have ‘Much Hard Evidence’ in Hunter Subpoena Probe Other than White House’s Words

On Wednesday’s edition of NBC News’ “Hallie Jackson Now,” NBC News Capitol Hill Correspondent Ryan Nobles stated that the House Republican inquiry into whether President Joe Biden advised his son Hunter to defy a congressional subpoena is not based “really  on much hard evidence, instead just public statements from members of the White House team” that aren’t from President Joe Biden himself.

Nobles said, “What they’re trying to find is some sort of direction connection or some sort of collaboration between the White House and Hunter Biden’s legal team that led to the President himself specifically telling Hunter Biden not to comply with the committee’s subpoena to appear for a deposition. And they’re not basing it really on much hard evidence, instead just public statements from members of the White House team — not the President himself — and the way that Hunter Biden conducted himself. So, that’s why they’ve taken this step of asking for communications between the Hunter Biden legal team and the White House to see if there’s any specific advice being provided by the White House Counsel’s Office or members of the administration instructing Hunter Biden to not comply with the subpoena.”

The letter specifically cites White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s statement during a press briefing that President Joe Biden “was certainly familiar with what his son was going to say.”
