Should Hunter Biden Be Held in Contempt of Congress?
Here’s The Scoop
In a groundbreaking move, the House Oversight Committee and the House Judiciary Committee have passed resolutions to hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress. This comes after Biden’s audacious defiance of a congressional subpoena, a key component of the House impeachment inquiry against President Biden.
The vote at the House Judiciary Committee was a decisive 23-14, clearly demonstrating the gravity of the situation. These resolutions are now set to go to the House Rules Committee.
However, it remains uncertain whether both resolutions will be considered separately on the floor for a full vote, or if the House Rules Committee will consolidate them into a single resolution for a contempt of Congress vote. Insiders suggest a full House floor vote could be imminent, possibly as early as next week.
Despite Hunter Biden’s surprise appearance at the House Oversight Committee markup with his attorneys, his refusal to comply with the subpoena remains a glaring issue.
His audacious claim that his “father was not financially involved in my business” does little to alleviate concerns.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., has been firm in his stance, stating that Hunter Biden’s “willful refusal to comply with the committees’ subpoenas is a criminal act” and that “all Americans must be treated equally under the law. And that includes the Bidens.”
