House Republicans announced on Sunday they will issue a second deposition to crackhead First Son Hunter Biden after he blew off the first deposition and instead delivered a speech inside the US Capitol the day of his first deposition.
Hunter blew off his first deposition and then last week went and sat inside the US House of Representatives contempt hearing and mocked the committee’s weakness.

“House Republicans to issue second round of subpoenas to Hunter Biden”https://t.co/xGvNb40S81
— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) January 14, 2024
The Washington Examiner reported:
House Republicans told Hunter Biden’s attorney on Sunday that they would issue new subpoenas to the first son after the attorney argued their prior subpoenas were illegitimate.
Reps. James Comer (R-KY) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) wrote to Abbe Lowell in a letter obtained by the Washington Examiner that they “are prepared to issue subpoenas compelling Mr. Biden’s appearance at a deposition on a new date in the coming weeks.”
The revelation comes after extensive back-and-forth between Lowell and the two Republicans, who have long sought to talk to Hunter Biden as part of their impeachment inquiry into his father, President Joe Biden.
Lowell had initially repeatedly argued that Hunter Biden was only willing to testify at a public hearing, observing how Comer had openly floated that as an option in media appearances. Lowell also accused Republicans of attempting to use a closed-door setting to selectively leak material from the interview to mislead the public.
Lowell’s position shifted last week; however, two days after Comer’s and Jordan’s respective committees, the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees, voted to advance resolutions to hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with the subpoenas they issued to him in November.
The Republicans have not yet found the courage to have Hunter Biden arrested for defying Congress, something Democrats do on a whim.
Maybe this latest double-dog-dare deposition will work out?
