Republicans Express Interest in Hearing from Hunter Biden at Contempt of Congress Hearing

Washington, D.C. – Republican Representative Andy Biggs of Arizona expressed his interest in hearing from Hunter Biden during a recent House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing. Biggs stated that he would have raised his hand had he been present when Democrats proposed the idea. The surprise appearance of President Biden’s son at the committee markup sparked opposition from Republicans.

During the hearing, Democratic Representative Jared Moskowitz of Florida suggested a vote on whether to hear from Biden “right now,” to which only Democrats raised their hands. When questioned on Fox News about why no Republicans raised their hand, Biggs explained that he was likely in another committee meeting at the time, adding that he would have expressed his willingness to listen to Hunter Biden.

Biggs emphasized that he and his colleagues were genuinely interested in hearing from Hunter Biden and accused Democrats of attempting to divert attention from the issues surrounding the president’s son. He stated, “I want to hear from Hunter, seriously. I think all my colleagues do as well.”

Hunter Biden had appeared before the committee prior to their scheduled vote on a resolution to hold him in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena the previous month. House Republicans have targeted the younger Biden, accusing him of “influence peddling” during his father’s tenure as vice president.

Both the House oversight and judiciary panels voted to advance the contempt of Congress resolution against Hunter Biden.

In summary, Representative Andy Biggs expressed his intention to hear from Hunter Biden during a House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing. He criticized Democrats for wanting to divert attention and discussed his colleagues’ genuine interest in listening to Hunter Biden speak. The committee later voted to advance a resolution to hold Biden in contempt of Congress.
