House Oversight Committee Chairman Invites Hunter Biden To Provide Public Testimony

House Oversight Committee Chairman Invites Hunter Biden To Provide Public Testimony

( – On Wednesday, February 28, Hunter Biden testified before two House committees behind closed doors. During his nearly seven-hour deposition, he maintained that he never involved his father, current President Joe Biden, in his business dealings. After the meeting, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) said he wanted to get to the bottom of some conflicting information from the deposition. To that end, he has now invited the younger Biden to return and testify at another hearing — this time publicly.

According to a press release, Comer is inviting Hunter Biden to testify at a public hearing called “Influence Peddling: Examining Joe Biden’s Abuse of Public Office.” The committee has also invited his business associates, Tony Bobulinski, Devon Archer, and Jason Galanis, to testify. Comer scheduled the hearing to take place on March 20 at 10 a.m.

As committee chair, Comer is holding the hearing to give “Americans the opportunity to hear… about Joe Biden’s involvement in the Bidens’ domestic and international business hearings.” The committee also wants to get to the bottom of “inconsistencies among the witnesses’ testimonies.”

Comer claimed that during questioning in the closed-door meeting, Hunter admitted to his father’s involvement, but other witnesses’ testimony doesn’t align with his statements. He says that since the younger Biden has repeatedly called for a public hearing, he “fully expect[s] Hunter Biden to appear.”

During their testimonies, Hunter’s business associates testified about Joe Biden’s involvement. Archer admitted that Hunter had put his father on speakerphone numerous times when dealing with associates. Bobulinski also testified that he had a 45-minute in-person meeting with Joe Biden in 2017. Galanis added fuel to the fire when he claimed that Joe Biden considered participating in a joint venture created by Hunter by joining the board.

Hunter hasn’t publicly responded to the committee’s invitation. The committee plans to livestream the hearing for the public to view.
