Hunter Biden Offers to Testify Before Congress in GOP Probe

On Tuesday, Joe Biden’s son Hunter offered to publicly testify before the House of Representatives, as Republican-led committees continue investigating his former business deals as part of an ongoing impeachment inquiry against his father.

As the Washington Free Beacon reports, Hunter’s offer comes in response to a subpoena issued by the House Oversight Committee, requesting him to testify behind closed-doors on December 13th. In his response, Hunter’s lawyer denounced the investigation as “a fishing expedition” and an “empty investigation.”

“We have seen you use closed-door sessions to manipulate, even distort the facts and misinform the public,” said attorney Abbe Lowell in a letter to Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.). “We therefore propose opening the door.” Neither Chairman Comer nor any of the other representatives on the committee have commented yet on whether or not they support the notion of Hunter Biden testifying publicly.

The impeachment inquiry stems from multiple confirmed instances of Hunter Biden engaging in shady foreign business deals, partnering with foreign businessmen and oligarchs, often receiving large sums of cash or other valuables in exchange for political access to his father during his vice presidency in the Obama Administration. Despite the elder Biden repeatedly claiming that he had no knowledge of his son’s business deals and claiming he never spoke to Hunter about business, evidence has emerged in recent months, from emails to witness testimony, confirming that both of these statements are false.

Chief among the examples of the Bidens’ influence-peddling scheme is the saga of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company that appointed Hunter to its board of directors despite him having no energy experience in his life. When the company came under investigation for corruption by Ukraine’s then-Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, then-Vice President Biden openly admitted to pressuring then-President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko into firing Shokin, threatening to withhold $1 billion of American aid unless he did so.

The Biden White House has dismissed the GOP investigations as a “smear campaign,” falsely claiming that they have “turned up zero evidence.”
