Hunter Biden agrees to appear before House Oversight Committee – but only in public: Lawyer

(WASHINGTON) — Hunter Biden is willing to testify before the House Oversight Committee — but only in public, according to a letter his attorney wrote to Republican lawmakers on Tuesday.

Chairman James Comer of the House Oversight Committee issued a subpoena earlier this month to depose Hunter Biden on Dec. 13. In his letter, Abbe Lowell, an attorney for Biden, accused Comer of selectively 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.”
