Two House committees have voted to recommend holding Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with a House subpoena.

Despite his unannounced appearance at a committee hearing, Republicans insist on a closed-door deposition before a public hearing.

Despite the possible referral for prosecution, Congress has limited means to enforce punishment.

The report alleges that President Biden knew of and benefited from his son’s foreign business interests.

Hunter Biden’s defiance of the subpoenas is seen as contempt of Congress.

“Resolved, That Robert Hunter Biden shall be found to be in contempt of Congress for failure to comply with a congressional subpoena,” the Oversight Committee report read.

“Resolved, That pursuant to 2 U.S.C. §§ 192 and 194, the Speaker of the House of Representatives shall certify the report of the Committee on Oversight and Accountability, detailing the refusal of Robert Hunter Biden to appear for a deposition before the Committee on Oversight and Accountability as directed by subpoena, to an appropriate United States attorney, to the end that Mr. Biden be proceeded against in the manner and form provided by law,” it added.

“Resolved, That the Speaker of the House shall otherwise take all appropriate action to enforce the subpoena,” the report noted.

“The Committees have accumulated significant evidence suggesting that President Biden knew of, participated in, and profited from foreign business interests engaged in by his son, about which the Committees intended to question Mr. Biden during his deposition,” the report added.

“However, Mr. Biden brazenly defied the Committees’ subpoenas, choosing to read a prepared statement outside of the Capitol instead of appearing for a deposition as required by the subpoenas. Mr. Biden’s willful refusal to comply with the Committees’ subpoenas constitutes contempt of Congress and warrants referral to the appropriate United States Attorney’s Office for prosecution as prescribed by law.”

The sudden appearance surprised both Democrats and Republicans, and it’s unclear if President Biden was informed.

This move signals Hunter Biden’s proactive stance in addressing his legal issues, which could impact the 2024 election.

No schedule for a full House vote on the resolution has been announced yet.
