... Abbe Lowell, Biden's legal counsel, sent a letter to House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) on Wednesday reiterating Biden's willingness to testify in a public hearing and saying the committee "uses closed-door sessions to manipulate, even distort, the facts and misinform the American public."

"A hearing would ensure transparency and truth in these proceedings," Lowell said. ...

The GQP is afraid of transparency since it would kill their ability to blatantly lie about what was said.

Comer Pyle and MAGAt Mike are already up to their eyebrows in blatant lies about this entire process.

It is clear sh*tler is pushing them to make fools of themselves because it is what he wants.

They are doing nothing.... NOTHING.... to help the voters....lower gas prices...lower grocery prices...lower medical costs and are instead going full steam ahead on this nonsense.

Calling truck loan payments corruption.

What a fooking joke they are.

House GOP Threatens to Hold Hunter Biden in Contempt of Congress
www.bnnbloomberg.ca

... House Republicans are threatening to hold the president's son, Hunter Biden, in contempt of Congress if he doesn't show up for closed-door questioning by congressional investigators.

Hunter Biden, whose overseas business dealings are at the heart of an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, has offered to testify publicly rather than appear under subpoena for a private Dec. 13 deposition, as he has been subpoenaed to do.

But House Oversight Chairman James Comer and Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan demand the questioning happen behind closed doors. They've said Hunter Biden's demands amount to a "request for special treatment" and an attempt to "bully" Congress.

"If Mr. Biden does not appear for his deposition Dec. 13, 2023, the committee will initiate contempt of Congress proceedings," the two chairmen wrote in a Wednesday letter. ...


Rep Jordan is involved in this "investigation" also?

Oh, that gives it so much more seriousness.   /s

They know Hunter Biden would mop the floor with them in a public hearing that's why they are so afraid of public testimony.

He'd whip it out, light a crack pipe and get a foot-job from a hooker and they'd have no idea how to respond.

" He'd whip it out, light a crack pipe and get a foot-job from a hooker and they'd have no idea how to respond."

More like he'd say, "Yeah, my dad loaned me money, and when I could, I paid him back."

"Is benefiting while your parent is in government a BAD thing? Cause Ivanka told me it's not."

... and they'd have no idea how to respond.

You are confused as usual.

It's Hunter Biden, not Hunter S Thompson.

Of COURSE they are heating up, because Trump shoot himself in the foot every day with psycho tweets and courtroom idiocy.

I remember when the Dems subpeonaed Bannon and Bannon said ok but as long as it's televised. What did the Dems tell him? Something to the tune of go f yourself.

@#17 ... Bannon said ok but as long as it's televised. ...

Mr Bannon claimed he was shielded by executive privilege.

OpEd: No Sympathy for Steve Bannon
www.wsj.com

... Steve Bannon was sentenced on Friday to four months in prison, and it's difficult to avoid the conclusion that he earned it. Mr. Bannon, a private citizen who left White House employment in summer 2017, did not have a plausible claim of executive privilege when he received a subpoena last year from the House Jan. 6 inquiry. Yet he decided to defy the subpoena anyway. ...

Forgot to add, the OpEd cited was by the Wall Street Journal Editorial Board in October 2022.

Bannon goes to jail in January, IIRC, once his appeal is denied.

Fishpaw, are you saying that you think HB's deposition should be televised? Wouldn't that be the natural choice to show Democratic Party hypocrisy? Cool!

For Reference: Bannon agreed to testify if it was televised only DAYS before his criminal trial for refusing to testify and provide documents.
