New Subpoenas to be Issued for President’s son

The President’s son going to have new subpoenas issued for him

New subpoenas are going to be issued by the Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Sunday for President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.

A plea made by Hunter’s lawyer for new amendments

Hunter’s lawyer stated recently that he would comply with all the congressional subpoenas only if the lawmakers issue him a “new proper one”.

It has been reported by the House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., and House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, that new subpoenas are going to be issued to Hunter in the coming weeks. A letter was sent out to Hunter’s lawyer Abbe Lowell.

Judges of original subpoenas are not ready to change them

The original subpoenas that were issued by Comer and Jordan have been maintained. These subpoenas requested Hunter’s deposition behind closed doors are “lawful and legally enforceable”. His defiance of the subpoenas was criticized by many.

However, the legal team of Hunter Biden had asserted that their client will only testify when there will be a public setting.

Closed-door deposition for Hunter criticized

He was supposed to be present at a closed-door deposition that was scheduled for last month. On the day of the deposition, Hunter went to the public to share remarks in front of the Capitol and took no questions.

The committees were led by the GOP. They voted for the decision of recommending that the full Household Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress as he defied a subpoena when there was an impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden.

Surprise trip of Hunter Biden to Capitol Hill

A brief surprise appearance was made by the President’s son when the Oversight Committee markup was organized. The surprise trip of Hunter was made hours before the contempt resolutions passed along party lines.

Contribution of the Republicans in the hearing

It was voted by the Republicans to recommend that Hunter Biden should be held in contempt. However, his attorney sent in a letter to Comer and Jordan on Friday which suggested that Hunter would comply with a congressional subpoena under the condition that it’s a “new proper” one.

Hunter’s lawyer’s statement

There was a statement given by Abbe Lowell. He said,  “If you issue a new proper subpoena, now that there is a duly authorized impeachment inquiry, Mr. Biden will comply for a hearing or deposition. We will accept such a subpoena on Mr. Biden’s behalf,”

According to Lowell, the subpoenas were termed legally invalid as they were issued before the House voted to authorize the impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden.

However, the judges called the assertion to their subpoenas very unpersuasive and inaccurate. The letter was sent out on Sunday by Comer and Jordan.

The subpoenas were issued for Biden back in November by the Judiciary and Oversight Committee. Additionally, the House had voted for this impeachment inquiry into the President to be authorized in December.

Then there were months of investigation that looked into the Biden family’s foreign business dealings and how the tax crimes into Hunter were looked at by the Department of Justice.

It was also noted by the Democrats that Comer previously offered Biden the option to testify in any manner he wanted to.  Hunter has made more public appearances in the recent week since the impeachment inquiry has been ramped up to his father.
