On Wednesday, GOP lawmakers threatened to hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress if he does not appear for his deposition on December 13.
"We received your letters dated November 28, 2023, and December 6, 2023, concerning the deposition subpoenas," the letter from House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan to Hunter Biden's attorney Abbe Lowell read.
"Contrary to the assertions in your letter, there is no 'choice' for Mr. Biden to make; the subpoenas compel him to appear for a deposition on December 13."
"If Mr. Biden does not appear for his deposition on December 13, 2023, the Committees will initiate contempt of Congress proceedings," the letter concluded.
Lowell sent a letter to Chairman Comer in late November stating that Biden would appear per subpoena.
"Mr. Chairman, we take you up on your offer. Accordingly, our client will get right to it by agreeing to answer any pertinent and relevant question you or your colleagues might have, but—rather than subscribing to your cloaked, one-sided process—he will appear at a public Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing."
"Unlike members of the Trump family, Hunter is a private person who has never worked in any family business nor ever served in the White House or in any public office," Lowell wrote. "Notwithstanding this stark difference, you have manipulated Hunter’s legitimate business dealings and his times of terrible addiction into a politically motivated basis for hearings to accuse his father of some wrongdoing."This is a breaking story and will be updated.
