House investigators are considering a new line of inquiry in the impeachment probe after Hunter Biden defied a subpoena for a deposition, potentially leading to obstruction charges.

White House Press Secretary confirmed President Biden’s awareness of Hunter’s press conference and his refusal to appear for the deposition, raising concerns of presidential involvement in potential criminal acts.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley suggested that this could be a significant mistake for the Bidens, potentially adding to the impeachment inquiry. (Trending: Democrat Excludes White People From Holiday Party In Controversial Email)

Turley also highlighted other potential legal issues related to Hunter Biden’s actions and the president’s involvement.

“One of the four most obvious potential articles of impeachment that I laid out in my prior testimony was obstruction,” Turley wrote.

“There already are questions over special treatment potentially being given to Hunter in the form of alleged felonies being allowed to expire, warnings about planned federal raids, and sweetheart deals.”

“In addition, President Biden has enlisted White House staff to actively push challenged accounts of his conduct and attack the House Republicans’ investigative process.”

“Such acts could legally bootstrap prior misconduct into his presidency under abuse-of-power allegations,” he added.

“If this latest allegation is true, the president was speaking with his son about committing a potentially criminal act of contempt,” Turley went on.

“Hunter was refusing to give testimony focused not on his own role but on his father’s potential role in the alleged influence peddling. The House can pursue evidence on that conversation and how the president may have supported his son’s effort.”
