House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer is prepared to take legal action if Hunter Biden refuses to appear for a deposition as part of the House’s investigation into the Biden family’s business dealings.

The House GOP is planning to vote on an impeachment inquiry into President Biden and is demanding Hunter Biden’s cooperation.

“Absolutely,” Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) said when asked if he was prepared to take Hunter Biden to court.

“I suspect that the House of Representatives will formally vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry. This is the exact same process that Pelosi took during her impeachment,” Mr. Comer said.

“And they’re not going to be able to have a leg to stand on in court if they try to defy our subpoenas.”

Hunter’s lawyer Abbe Lowell said, “A public proceeding would prevent selective leaks, manipulated transcripts, doctored exhibits, or one-sided press statements.”

“We expect full cooperation with our subpoena for a deposition but also agree that Hunter Biden should have the opportunity to testify in a public setting at a future date,” Mr. Comer said.

They argue that evidence from witness testimony and bank records warrants further questioning of Mr. Biden and others.

The White House has criticized the investigation, maintaining that President Biden was not involved in family business, and James Biden’s lawyer has defended the money transactions in question.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the House Judiciary Committee chairman, said Mr. Biden’s deposition will take place “in a deposition setting” or in private.

“Mr. Biden’s attempt to avoid sitting for a deposition pursuant to the terms of the subpoenas—by offering instead to testify at a public hearing—amounts to a demand that he receive special treatment from the committees,” the congressmen said.

“Mr. Biden will not succeed in attempting to dictate to the committees how they conduct their investigation.”

Mr. Biden “is the key witness to all of the Biden crimes,” Mr. Comer said. “So the subpoena called for him to show up in this office on Dec. 13 for a deposition. I expect to see Hunter Biden in this office for a deposition.”

Democrats on the House Oversight Committee said, “Why can’t GOP Oversight take ‘yes’ for an answer and let the American people hear the truth from Hunter Biden themselves?”
