Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, made a notable appearance on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, but not for the private interview requested by House Republicans. As Fox News reported, he spoke to reporters, emphasizing his preference to testify publicly rather than in a closed session, contrary to the demands of a Republican subpoena. During this interaction.

Hunter vehemently denied any financial involvement of his father in his business dealings, stating that no evidence exists because such involvement never occurred. He also reiterated President Biden’s previous statements about not being involved in discussions about his son’s business activities.

This appearance comes amid a Republican-led investigation seeking to impeach President Biden over alleged ties to his family’s international business transactions. Hunter addressed several aspects of this GOP probe, clarifying that his father had no financial role in his various business ventures, including his time as a lawyer, a board member of Burisma, partnerships with Chinese businessmen, investments, or as an artist.

Jim Jordan, the House Judiciary Committee Chair, stressed the importance of following procedural protocol in the contempt proceedings, as mentioned in a report by The Hill.

Hunter also accused House Republicans of spreading falsehoods about his personal and professional life, contributing to a widely accepted but false narrative. He acknowledged past mistakes and privileges he missed, expressing his commitment to rectifying these errors. However, he criticized the portrayal of his character by MAGA Republicans for political purposes, stating, “But I’m also here today to correct how the MAGA right has portrayed me for their political purposes.”

He accused MAGA Republicans, including House committee members, of defaming his character, invading his privacy, and attacking his family and associates. Hunter spoke about how they ridiculed his struggles with addiction and recovery, aiming to embarrass and harm his father. In a report by Raw Story, he shared how his parents supported him during his addiction battle and acknowledged his financial irresponsibility during that time.

Hunter criticized House Committee chairs James Comer, Jim Jordan, and Jason Smith for distorting facts, manipulating evidence, and misrepresenting personal information stolen from him. He argued that their actions lacked fairness and decency, portraying a biased and harmful narrative against him.
