Hunter Biden, the president’s son, is reiterating that his testimony before Congress will only be public.

In a letter to Rep. James Comer, the Kentucky Republican who chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, Biden’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, said the offer to testify publicly was in response to Comer’s own remarks on at least three occasions. Comer previously rejected Biden’s Nov. 28 offer to publicly testify before his panel, saying any testimony would have to be behind closed doors.

“As indicated in my November 28, 2023, letter, Mr. Biden has offered to appear at a hearing on the December 13, 2023, date you have reserved, or another date this month, to answer any question pertinent and relevant to the subject matter stated in your November 8, 2023, letter,” Lowell wrote. “He is making this choice because the Committee has demonstrated time and again it uses closed-door sessions to manipulate, even distort, the facts and misinform the American public—a hearing would ensure transparency and truth in these proceedings.”

The development comes as House Republicans inch closer to a vote to officially begin an impeachment inquiry into President Biden. Last month, Comer sent subpoenas to Hunter Biden, the president’s brother James Biden and other family members and business associates, directing them to appear for depositions and transcribed interviews – one more sign the impeachment inquiry into the president was entering a new phase.
