On Wednesday, Hunter Biden took a bold stand, opting out of his scheduled closed-door deposition with congressional representatives to address the media on the Capitol steps instead.
He asserted his desire to testify publicly, a request House leaders acknowledged but mandated that he first appear in a closed-door session as per standard procedure.
Reports suggest that House leaders are contemplating holding Hunter in contempt of Congress for his refusal to comply.
During his press conference, Hunter’s statements prompted Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) to emphasize the significance of his words in shaping the impeachment inquiry proceedings for President Joe Biden. Jordan noted the shift in Hunter’s stance as pivotal.
When asked about the prospect of impeachment by a reporter, Jordan acknowledged the compelling evidence but emphasized the need to speak with additional witnesses, specifically mentioning the importance of engaging with Sally Painter and another individual linked to Blue Star Strategies.
Regarding Hunter’s remarks implying his father’s non-financial involvement in his business affairs, Jordan emphasized the gravity of this admission, suggesting it contradicts prior narratives upheld for over three years.
Hunter Biden today defied lawful subpoenas and we will now initiate contempt of Congress proceedings.
We will not provide special treatment because his last name is Biden.

Republicans have highlighted the evolving statements from the White House and the Justice Department concerning President Biden’s involvement in Hunter’s business dealings. Jordan expressed frustration at the changing narratives while praising the consistency of testimony from two whistleblowers involved in the investigations.
Jordan emphasized the significance of Hunter’s absence and the statement made by President Biden dismissing mounting evidence as falsehoods during recent inquiries.
Chairman Jason Smith of the House Ways and Means Committee cited evidence from documents indicating Joe Biden’s correspondences with his son and business partner using pseudonyms and private email accounts during international trips, specifically mentioning Ukraine, during Biden’s tenure as vice president.
