Video: Biden Was Asked What’s His Message To People Who Defy Congressional Subpoenas – His Answer Should Put Hunter In Jail

WASHINGTON — Hunter Biden on Wednesday repeated his offer to appear at a public hearing on Capitol Hill, defying a House Republican-issued subpoena that called for him to testify instead at a closed-door deposition.

President Joe Biden’s son lashed out at Republicans during brief remarks standing outside of the U.S. Capitol, saying, “I’m here today to make sure that the House committees’ illegitimate investigations of my family do not proceed on distortions, manipulated evidence and lies.”

Republicans had subpoenaed Hunter Biden to appear for a closed-door deposition Wednesday morning before the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees. The chairmen of those committees, as well as the House Ways and Means Committee, are spearheading the impeachment effort into President Joe Biden.

Two House Republican chairs said they would initiate contempt proceedings against the president’s son Hunter Biden after he failed to appear for a scheduled deposition following a subpoena.

The GOP is now pointing to the deposition as another justification for its impeachment inquiry, which the House is set to formally kick off with a Wednesday night vote.

“Hunter Biden today defied lawful subpoenas and we will now initiate contempt of Congress proceedings. We will not provide special treatment because his last name is Biden,” House Oversight Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) and House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said in a joint statement.

“Today, the House will vote on an impeachment inquiry resolution to strengthen our legal case in the courts as we face obstruction from the White House and witnesses. Today’s obstruction by Hunter Biden reinforces the need for a formal vote.”

Republicans wanted to speak to Hunter Biden about his financial dealings, as well as a Justice Department investigation into his failure to pay taxes.

Now a video resurfaced where Joe Biden once called on the DOJ to prosecute anyone who defies the January 6 Congressional Committee’s subpoena.

The president told reporters in October 2021 that the select committee which investigated the January 6, 2021, riot should be prosecuted by the Justice Department if they were to defy congressional subpoenas.

“I hope that the committee goes after them and holds them accountable,” he told former CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, who also previously worked at the Daily Caller.

This means if the Joe Biden is honest than Hunter could end up in jail!
