Hunter Biden testified privately for over six hours before the House GOP impeachment probe into his father Joe Biden.

The president’s son denied any involvement of his father in his business dealings and said the inquiry has produced no evidence to support its claims.

Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell said, “After seven hours of questions, the Republican majority ends the day … where they started. They have produced no evidence that would do anything to support the notion that there was any financial transactions that involved Hunter with his father – period.”

He continued, “It seems to me that the Republicans wanted to spend more time speaking about my client’s addiction than they could ask any question that had anything to do with what they call their impeachment inquiry.”

Hunter said in his opening statement, “I am here today to provide the Committees with the one incontestable fact that should end the false premise of this inquiry: I did not involve my father in my business.”

Hunter continued, “Not while I was a practicing lawyer, not in my investments or transactions domestic or international, not as a board member, and not as an artist. Never.”

The President’s son said, “For more than a year, your Committees have hunted me in your partisan political pursuit of my dad.”

Hunter claimed, “You have trafficked in innuendo, distortion, and sensationalism — all the while ignoring the clear and convincing evidence staring you in the face. You do not have evidence to support the baseless and MAGA-motivated conspiracies about my father because there isn’t any.”

Republicans focused more on Hunter’s personal issues than the probe’s stated aims.

Democrats criticized the inquiry as a partisan pursuit lacking evidence.

Rep. Eric Swalwell said House GOP members are “so desperate to humiliate the president, but they started asking the president’s son personal details about a divorce that happened almost ten years ago. They’re doing all this when we are days away from the government shutting down”.

Democratic Rep. Robert Garcia said, “We’ve been in the deposition now for about an hour, and one thing is crystal clear – the Republicans have zero evidence linking Hunter Biden to any sort of business dealings with the president.”

The inquiry has struggled with witnesses pouring cold water on its claims and a key informant being charged with fabricating information, in what Hunter Biden called carrying out a Russian disinformation campaign.

Hunter Biden said in his testimony, “rather than follow the facts as they have been laid out before you in bank records, financial statements, correspondence, and other witness testimony, you continue your frantic search to prove the lies you, and those you rely on, keep peddling.”

Hunter wrote, “During my battle with addiction, my father was there for me. He helped save my life. His love and support made it possible for me to get sober, stay sober and rebuild my life as a father, husband, son, and brother.”

He explained, “What he got in return for being a loving and supportive parent is a barrage of hate-filled conspiracy theories that hatched this sham impeachment inquiry and continue to fuel unrelenting personal attacks against him and me.”

Hunter concluded, “My testimony today should put an end to this baseless and destructive political charade. You have wasted valuable time and resources attacking me and my family for your own political gain when you should be fixing the real problems in this country that desperately need your attention.”

While Republicans say they will hold public hearings, Democrats and Hunter Biden argue the inquiry should end given its demonstrated lack of merit.
