Hunter Biden Braces For ‘Very Aggressive’ Impeachment Inquiry

Hunter Biden should expect a “very aggressive set of questioners” for the testimony he’s going to give behind closed doors as part of the impeachment inquiry the House is conducting into his father, President Joe Biden.

Those statements were made by Harry Litman, an attorney familiar with the matter, during an appearance on CNN on Wednesday.

The House is conducting these inquiries based on the president’s alleged involvement in the foreign business dealings of his son, Hunter. On multiple occasions, the White House has denied that Biden had anything at all to do with Hunter’s business dealings.

Hunter received a subpoena from House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer back in November, but only agreed to give public testimony initially. House Republicans shot down that idea, though.

Since then, Hunter has defied that subpoena and refused to give testimony behind closed doors … that is, until Wednesday of this week.

The president’s son was scheduled to answer questions from the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Wednesday about the claims that others have made that the president benefited personally from, and ultimately influenced, the business dealings that Hunter had overseas in Ukraine and China.

The alleged incidents occurred when Biden was serving as vice president during the Obama administration.

While these legal inquiries are being conducted into his father, the Hunter is facing many legal challenges of his own.

He has pleaded guilty to all of the charges against him, three of which are gun charges levied by the federal government. They relate to him lying about his past drug use on a federal form he filled out to purchase a handgun back in October of 2018.

In addition to those charges, Hunter is facing additional tax charges from the Department of Justice, which alleges that he evaded $1.4 million in federal taxes — at least — from 2016 through 2019. Hunter has also pleaded guilty to all of those tax charges.

During his appearance on CNN this week, Litman — who served as a U.S. attorney during the Clinton administration — was asked how much everyone should expect Hunter to answer during the testimony, given that the information could ultimately be used against him in the future.

Litman responded:

“You’re totally right. He’s under indictment for two different crimes. Those will both be off-limits. And his lawyer, Abbe Lowell, will jump in and say we can’t talk about that; he’s under indictment. What does that leave?

“For them, the motherlode … would be anything about Joe Biden’s business dealings with him. I think that’s going to be a dry hole. Nine witnesses have already testified there’s nothing there. This will be the 10th, he’ll say so. He’s already made public statements to that effect.”

Litman says that doesn’t leave investigators with much, except for topics such as his art career, where he may have gotten money — all of which could be used to insinuate he was exploiting the “Biden brand.”
