Comer: Hunter Defied Subpoena ‘In Typical Biden Fashion’

Hunter Biden’s brazen appearance in front of the Capitol building on Wednesday as he defied a congressional subpoena prompted widespread backlash from Republicans.

He had been scheduled to testify in a closed-door deposition with members of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, prompting the chairmen of both panels to initiate contempt hearings when he skipped the testimony in favor of delivering prepared remarks on Capitol Hill.

The following day, Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) appeared on the Fox Business Network to discuss the matter, insisting that Biden’s behavior displayed the type of disregard for the law that has become synonymous with his family.

“He did it in typical Biden fashion,” Comer said. “He showed the world the amount of arrogance and entitlement that he believes he has because he’s a Biden. … He doesn’t think the rules apply to him.”

The Kentucky Republican went on to note that lawmakers submitted a “lawful subpoena” that Biden simply chose to ignore.

“We’ve spent 10 months building a case of corruption against the Biden family,” he added. “We have their bank records. I think everyone in America knows by now, even the people that are all in for Joe Biden, that the family was influence-peddling.”

Following Biden’s press event on Wednesday, the House passed a resolution along party lines to begin an impeachment inquiry into his father, President Joe Biden.

“We want to now bring [Hunter Biden] in and ask him what exactly he did to receive the tens of millions of dollars from our enemies around the world,” Comer said. “And, most importantly, we want to know about Joe’s role.”

As for the younger Biden’s remarks to the media, Comer concluded: “He goes and he tries to play the sympathy card with the reporters. Said he was there to talk, then got in his car and drove off. Typical Biden fashion.”

Former President Donald Trump also took aim at Biden’s refusal to comply with the congressional subpoena despite being so close to the House.

“Did you see Hunter today, right?” he said during a campaign event in Iowa on Wednesday. “He went to the wrong place. He went to the Senate instead of the House. Everyone’s saying, ‘Where’s Hunter? See, it always gets, ‘Where’s Hunter?’ What a two-tiered system of justice we have.”
