Hunter Biden on Wednesday defied subpoenas to appear in front of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, delivering instead a Trump-style broadside against his GOP investigators outside the Capitol. The President’s son says he has nothing to hide, but his refusal to answer questions suggests otherwise.
Hunter blamed his no-show on Republicans’ insistence that he initially sit for a deposition behind closed doors. “I’m here to testify at a public hearing today, to answer any of the committee’s legitimate questions,” Hunter said, without taking media queries. He said the GOP’s “illegitimate” inquiry was based on “distortions, manipulated evidence and lies.” His lawyer, Abbe Lowell, claimed Republicans would use a closed-door session to leak distorted snippets of Hunter’s testimony.
