Hunter Biden has agreed to testify publicly before the House Oversight Committee on Dec. 13, complying with a subpoena but demanding that the testimony be public.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said, “Hunter Biden is trying to play by his own rules instead of following the rules required of everyone else. That won’t stand with House Republicans.”
“Our lawfully issued subpoena to Hunter Biden requires him to appear for a deposition on December 13.”
“We expect full cooperation with our subpoena for a deposition but also agree that Hunter Biden should have opportunity to testify in a public setting at a future date.”
Abbe Lowell, an attorney for Biden, said Hunter is “eager to have the opportunity” to testify “in a public forum.”
“Here we are, eleven months into your so-called investigation, and every objective review of your ‘revelations’ — including by some of your colleagues — has declared your exploration as one turning up only dry holes,” Lowell wrote.
As of now, there is no public hearing planned for Biden to testify.
