House Oversight Committee chair James Comer (R-Ky.) allegedly misrepresented testimony from Kevin Morris, a friend of Hunter Biden, during a deposition.

Comer characterized Morris’s financial support for Hunter Biden as a scheme to insulate President Joe Biden from political liability.

Morris’s attorney disputed Comer’s description and demanded the release of a full transcript.

Hunter Biden, who initially defied a subpoena, will now undergo a deposition.

“Kevin Morris’s massive financial support to Hunter Biden raises ethical and campaign finance concerns for President Joe Biden,” Comer said.

Comer labeled Morris’s support as a way “to insulate then-presidential candidate Joe Biden from political liability.”

“Not two hours after we left Mr. Morris’ transcribed interview, you issued a press statement with cherry‐picked, out of context and totally misleading descriptions of what Mr. Morris said,” attorney Bryan Sullivan wrote.

“These ‘loans’ don’t have to be repaid until after the next presidential election, and the ‘loans’ may ultimately be forgiven,” Comer said.

“To the contrary, Mr. Morris repeatedly testified he actually loaned the money to Mr. Hunter Biden, that these loans were reviewed by lawyers for each of them, that they have proper loan terms such as interest and a term, and that he expected Mr. Hunter Biden to repay these loans,” Sullivan wrote.

The Oversight Committee claims the transcript will affirm Comer’s description, while Morris’s attorney asserts that Morris expects repayment for the loans he provided.

“These are loans that he fully expects to be repaid,” Rep. Jamie Raskin said. “And it is completely standard terms that were drawn up by his lawyers in consultation with Hunter Biden’s lawyers.”

“For him, it was not a lot of money,” Raskin said. “He testified it was less than 5% of his assets, he would say off the top of his head, and he makes those kinds of loans all the time, and he seems like a very generous and loving friend.”

Comer noted that Morris has “had access to the Biden White House and has spoken to President Biden.”

Sullivan disagreed, noting that Morris “testified that he has only had cursory communications with President Biden at public events like Mr. Biden’s daughter’s wedding, and said basic courtesy things as ‘hello’ and ‘how are you’ and President Biden making comments about Mr. Morris’ unkempt hair style that lasted a few minutes.”
