House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer responded to Hunter Biden’s request for a public hearing, stating that Biden is welcome to a public hearing but only after a deposition.

Comer emphasized that this is the normal process for credible investigations and that Hunter Biden is not above the law.

He cited a similar scenario with Steve Bannon, who was denied a public hearing and held in contempt for ignoring a Congressional subpoena. (Trending: Donald Trump Confronts Bud Light CEO)

“Can you explain this whole process? My understanding of your subpoena is you want a closed door, under oath deposition and you want materials handed over. Is that correct, sir?” asked Hannity.

“That’s correct. This is a normal subpoena,” said Comer.

“This is a normal Congressional subpoena, it’s a lawful subpoena. We have asked him to come in on December 13th. His attorney said today that he would gladly come in but only for a public hearing. He will have a public hearing after we do the deposition. This is the way credible investigations are conducted,” explained the GOP representative.

“Hunter Biden is not above the law,” charged Comer.

“Just because he has gotten away with criminal activity by the DOJ, the FBI, the IRS, the National Archives, doesn’t mean he is going to be treated that way by the House Oversight Committee,” primsed the committee’s chair.

“We are going to abide by the law. Jamie Raskin, the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee did this exact same process. He had a very similar scenario with Steve Bannon when he was subpoenaed by the January 6th committee. He wanted to come in not for a deposition but for a public hearing. Raskin said he had to sit down for a deposition because that’s what the law requires,” recalled Comer.

“That’s what we require of Hunter Biden. We will gladly have a public hearing with Hunter Biden after we do the deposition to go over the 10,000 plus pages of bank records and documents we have with countless questions about specific transactions, promised Comer.

Comer emphasized the need to abide by the law and conduct a deposition before a public hearing.
