BREAKING: Hunter Biden makes surprise appearance at Oversight contempt proceeding in congress, then storms out

"Why can't you show up for a congressional deposition? You're here for a political stunt, this is just a PR stunt to you. This is just a game that you are playing with the American people. You're playing with the truth."

After defying a Congressional subpoena in December, Hunter Biden made a surprise appearance at Wednesday’s markup meeting in which lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee are working on a resolution to hold the president’s son in contempt of Congress.

House Oversight member Nancy Mace addressed Biden directly, saying in the meeting, "you did so deliberately, you did so flagrantly, you showed up on the Hill on the Senate side the day of that Congressional subpoena to defy it and spit in the face of this committee. That's what you did."

"The question the American people are asking us is what is Hunter Biden so afraid of? Why can't you show up for a congressional deposition? You're here for a political stunt, this is just a PR stunt to you. This is just a game that you are playing with the American people you're playing with the truth."

Mace said that "I believe Hunter Biden should be held completely in contempt. I think he should be hauled off to jail right now, because it wasn’t long ago too, my friends on the other side of the aisle, that you also believed in the power of a Congressional subpoena."

"Play stupid games, win stupid prizes," she said.

When Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene began speaking Hunter Biden stormed out, with Greene telling him as he left, "Apparently you’re afraid of my words."

After order was restored, Greene continued, "I think it’s clear and obvious for everyone watching this hearing today that Hunter Biden is terrified of strong conservative Republican women, because he can’t even face my words as I was about to speak to him. What a coward."

In the halls of Congress, a reporter shouted at Hunter Biden, "Are you on crack today?"

Hunter Biden attorney Abbe Lowell addressed reporters in the halls of Congress, saying that "Republicans have sought to use [Hunter Biden} as a surrogate to attack his father."

Lowell said that "we have offered to work with House committees to see what and how relevant information to any legitimate inquiry could be provided."

"Our first five offers were ignored. And then in November, they issued a subpoena for a behind-closed-doors deposition, a tactic that the Republicans have repeatedly misused in their political crusade to selectively leave and mischaracterize what witnesses have said."

Hunter Biden was subpoenaed to appear for a closed-door deposition on December 13, 2023. He refused to attend this deposition, instead speaking from the Capitol lawn.

Hunter Biden declared that he would only appear in a public session, but Committee on House Administration rules states that depositions of a witness are to take place only in the presence of the "Committee, Committee staff designed by the Chairman or the ranking minority member, an official reporter, the witness, and the witness’ two designated attorneys." Hunter Biden, however, doesn't think this rule should apply to him.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
