 Hunter Biden reverses course, would sit for closed-door deposition with new subpoena
by Emily Brooks and Alex Gangitano - 01/12/24 12:53 PM ET

Hunter Biden reversed course Friday and said he would agree to give closed-door testimony to Congress if the House Oversight and Judiciary committees issue new subpoenas.

Hunter Biden’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, made the offer in a letter Friday to Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) and Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the two Republicans who have led the investigations into the Biden family and an impeachment inquiry into President Biden.

“You have not explained why you are not interested in transparency and having the American people witness the full and complete testimony of Mr. Biden at a public hearing. If you issue a new proper subpoena, now that there is a duly authorized impeachment inquiry, Mr. Biden will comply for a hearing or deposition. We will accept such a subpoena on Mr. Biden’s behalf,” Lowell wrote.

President Biden’s son had previously offered only to testify in a public setting, and he defied a subpoena to appear for a closed-door deposition last month.

That prompted Republicans to advance a resolution to hold him in contempt of Congress — after a surprise appearance from Hunter Biden as one of the panels debated the measure.

A full House vote is scheduled for next week, after which the Department of Justice could decide whether to bring charges against Hunter Biden.
