Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, has stated that if a new subpoena is issued under the “duly authorized impeachment inquiry,” Hunter Biden will comply for a hearing or deposition.

This comes after the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees recommended holding Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress for defying previous subpoenas.

Lowell’s offer precedes a House Rules Committee meeting to prepare a contempt of Congress resolution, with a potential full House vote on the matter. (Trending: Anthony Fauci Questioned About Evidence Behind COVID Restrictions)

“If you issue a new proper subpoena, now that there is a duly authorized impeachment inquiry, Mr. Biden will comply for a hearing or deposition,” Lowell wrote. “We will accept such a subpoena on Mr. Biden’s behalf.”

“Rep. Glenn Ivey suggested a procedure for a hybrid process-a public deposition; hearing with alternating rounds of questions for Republicans and Democrats, and with similar rules (e.g., role of counsel in questioning), as is done in a closed-door deposition,” Lowell wrote.

“Four Republicans actually voted in committee in support of this process,” the footnote added. “Perhaps that could be the basis for our discussion.”

House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jamie Raskin, D-Md., stated that Hunter “is giving Republicans exactly what they have been demanding this week.”

“It is time for Chairs Comer and Jordan to call off this truly absurd and wasteful contempt proceeding and finally take yes for an answer, which Chair Jordan already said he would ‘certainly’ do,” Raskin said.

Hunter Biden “blantantly defied two lawful subpoenas,” James Comer said.

“Hunter Biden’s willful refusal to comply with the committees’ subpoenas is a criminal act” that “constitutes contempt of Congress and warrants referral to the appropriate United States Attorney’s Office for prosecution as prescribed by law,” he added.

“We will not provide Hunter Biden with special treatment because of his last name,” Comer said. “All Americans must be treated equally under the law. And that includes the Bidens.”

“So here’s what I’ll say. And I’ve said this many times before: Hunter, as you all know, as a private citizen, he’s not a member of this White House,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “He makes his own decisions, like he did today about how to respond to Congress.”

The White House declined to comment on whether it was informed in advance of Hunter Biden’s attendance at a House Oversight Committee session.
