House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer has issued a statement in response to Hunter Biden and attorney Abbe Lowell’s letter agreeing to a public testimony.
“We have seen you use closed-door sessions to manipulate, even distort the facts and misinform the public. We therefore propose opening the door,” Hunter’s attorney Abbe Lowell wrote. “If, as you claim, your efforts are important and involve issues that Americans should know about, then let light shine on the proceedings.”
While Comer agreed to open-door proceedings, he says Hunter Biden is still required to adhere tot he subpoena which calls for him to be deposed on December 13th in a closed-door session.
“Hunter Biden is trying to play by his own rules instead of following the rules required of everyone else. That won’t stand with House Republicans,” Comer said in a statement to Fox News.
He added; “Our lawfully issued subpoena to Hunter Biden requires him to appear for a deposition on December 13. We expect full cooperation with our subpoena for a deposition but also agree that Hunter Biden should have opportunity to testify in a public setting at a future date.”
