Hunter is right--get all out in the OPEN. None of this closed door crap.



The move by Hunter Biden to agree to answer questions from congressional investigators in public comes after House Republicans subpoenaed him and James Biden, the president's brother, to appear for depositions earlier this month. Congressional investigators have also requested other members of the Biden family appear before lawmakers for transcribed interviews, and has issued subpoenas to Hunter Biden's former business associates. The demands marked another escalation in the House GOP's efforts to determine whether Mr. Biden committed impeachable offenses.

Comer quickly rejected Hunter Biden's offer on Tuesday, saying he must appear for a closed-door deposition on Dec. 13 while leaving open the possibility of public testimony in the future.

"Hunter Biden is trying to play by his own rules instead of following the rules required of everyone else. That won't stand with House Republicans," Comer said in a statement. "Our lawfully issued subpoena to Hunter Biden requires him to appear for a deposition on December 13. We expect full cooperation with our subpoena for a deposition but also agree that Hunter Biden should have opportunity to testify in a public setting at a future date."

The GOP leaders of the Oversight and Judiciary Committees, who are leading the impeachment inquiry into Mr. Biden, claimed Hunter Biden was "actively involved in the web connecting the Biden family to foreign money," and said he has "personal knowledge" of whether the president has been involved in his family members' business dealings.
