According to reports from multiple media outlets, embattled First Son Hunter Biden has finally agreed to testify before James Comer and the House Oversight Committee. Comer and company want to question Biden regarding his overseas business ties and potential influence-peddling scheme.
Hunter has agreed to testify on Dec. 13 in a letter sent to the panel, obtained by NBC News; he was subpoenaed by House Republicans earlier this month.
Biden attorney Abbe Lowell is pushing for open proceedings.
“Mr. Chairman, we take you up on your offer,” Lowell wrote, in a copy of the letter reviewed by The Washington Post. “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.”
“A public proceeding would prevent selective leaks, manipulated transcripts, doctored exhibits, or one-sided press statements,” Lowell added.
“Your empty investigation has gone on too long wasting too many better-used resources. It should come to an end,” Lowell wrote. “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.”
“From all the individuals you have requested depositions or interviews, all you will learn is that your accusations are baseless,” he added. “However, the American people should see that for themselves.”
