Hunter Biden has agreed to comply with a subpoena issued by the House Oversight Committee but is demanding that his testimony be public.

The committee has scheduled a closed-door deposition for December 13, and while Chairman James Comer agreed that Biden should have the opportunity to testify publicly at a future date, he stated that Biden is still required to appear for the closed-door deposition.

“We have seen you use closed door sessions to manipulate, even distort the facts and misinform the public. We therefore propose opening the door,” Hunter’s attorney Abbe Lowell said. (Trending: Donald Trump Confronts Bud Light CEO.)

“If, as you claim, your efforts are important and involve issues that Americans should know about, then let light shine on the proceedings.”

“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,” Comer said.

“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.”

The subpoena is part of a Republican-led investigation into the Biden family’s business dealings, and Biden’s attorney criticized the probe as a politically motivated crusade.

“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,” Abbe Lowell wrote.

“Your Committee has been working for almost a year — without success — to tie our client’s business activities to his father,” he added.

“Unlike members of the Trump family, Hunter is a private person who has never worked in any family business nor ever served in the White House or in any public office. Notwithstanding this stark difference, you have manipulated Hunter’s legitimate business dealings and his times of terrible addiction into a politically motivated basis for hearings to accuse his father of some wrongdoing,” the letter adds.

There is currently no public hearing planned for Biden to testify.
