Hunter Biden says he will sit for deposition if subpoenaed anew

 January 14, 2024

Hunter Biden's legal team revealed that he will sit for a deposition in the House of Representatives if a valid subpoena is issued by the House Oversight and Judiciary panels.

Biden claims that the last subpoena he was issued was not valid, but it seems that he is now being forced into sitting for a deposition, as further defying subpoenas could result in serious legal trouble.

Biden's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, sent a letter on Friday to Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) and Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) in which he outlined the terms under which Biden would sit for a deposition.

Lowell stated, "You have not explained why you are not interested in transparency and having the American people witness the full and complete testimony of Mr. Biden at a public hearing. 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."

The attorney further outlined Biden's terms saying they wanted a "public deposition/hearing with alternating rounds of questions for Republicans and Democrats, and with similar rules (e.g., role of counsel in questioning), as is done in a closed-door deposition."

Biden can't run forever, and he will be forced to answer for the allegations against him sooner or later. However, his lawyer is doing everything to make sure everything is done on Biden's terms.
