Hunter Biden Storms Out of Committee Meeting
In a shock to many, first son Hunter Biden, made a surprise appearance at the beginning of an Oversight Committee hearing on a resolution and accompanying report to hold him in contempt of Congress which clearly stirred tensions between legislators on both sides of the aisle.
“My first question is who bribed Hunter Biden to be here today? That’s my first question. Second question, you are the epitome of white privilege. Coming into the Oversight Committee, spitting in our face, ignoring a congressional subpoena to be deposed. What are you afraid of? You have no balls to come up there,” South Carolina Representative Nancy Mace told Hunter Biden.
As soon as the time was handed over to Georgia’s Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene for questioning, Hunter Biden made a mad dash to the exit.
“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,” Greene said.

Too bad his daddy can’t save him this time.
We have mountains of evidence of Biden family corruption and foreign influence peddling and there will be accountability for these… pic.twitter.com/jYTrPBoeJj
Once outside the Committee chamber, a slew of reporters surrounded Hunter Biden with one reporter asking him what kind of crack cocaine he prefers smoking as the first son has had a public addiction to the substance and has been embroiled in several controversies.

Despite the spectacle that occurred inside and outside the House Oversight Committee room, Hunter Biden’s defense attorney, Abbe Lowell, wrote a letter to the Committee chairman stating Hunter would indeed sit for a deposition behind closed doors if a new subpoena was issued.
READ THE LETTER FROM HIS DEFENSE ATTORNEY BELOW:
“If you issue a new proper subpoena, now that there is a duly authorized impeachment inquiry, Mr. Biden will comply for a hearing or deposition. We will accept such a subpoena on Mr. Biden’s behalf,” Lowell’s letter reads.
Hunter Biden flew back to Los Angeles after the hearing where he pleaded not guilty to nine federal tax-related charges at an arraignment.
The House will hold a floor vote next week on whether or not they will hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena which required him to appear for a closed door deposition on December 13, according to House Majority Leader Steve Scalise.
Republicans sought a private appearance in Committee from Hunter that was rejected by both his lawyer and himself, instead offering for him to testify publicly and skip the closed-door session. This offer was rejected by Republicans and it was requested he appear in a private session.
It is yet to be determined if Republicans will hold Hunter Biden in contempt of court. Next week we will find out the next series of events to unfold in this case.
