Hunter Biden agrees to private deposition with House Republicans

The House Oversight Committee announced Thursday, Jan. 18, that Hunter Biden, will appear in front of House Republicans for a private deposition next month. Confirmed by his legal team, the president’s son is slated to testify behind closed doors on Feb. 28, ending a months-long back and forth with House Republicans.

In December, Hunter Biden defied a subpoena to testify in private, which kickstarted a resolution to hold him in contempt of Congress that has since been called off. Biden’s lawyers have previously said a private testimony would allow Republicans to selectively leak manipulated information while demanding an opportunity for Hunter Biden to testify publicly.

Republicans view Hunter Biden as a key witness in their investigation into his father, President Joe Biden, alleging the elder Biden profited off of his family’s foreign business dealings during his tenure as vice president during the Obama administration. Republicans have not been able to show any proof of their claim up to this point.

“There is no evidence to support the allegations that my father was financially involved in my business because it did not happen,” Hunter Biden said in December, after defying the Republican’s subpoena. “There is no fairness or decency in what these Republicans are doing — they have lied over and over about every aspect of my personal and professional life — so much so that their lies have become the false facts believed by too many people.”

House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., told reporters that the president’s son will be able to testify publicly sometime after the private deposition.
