Lawmaker Claims Hunter Biden Could Go to Jail

( – Pennsylvania Rep. Dan Meuseer (R) sat down with Newsmax interviewers on December 13 ahead of a House vote officially authorizing an impeachment inquiry into high crimes and misdemeanors allegedly perpetrated by President Joe Biden. However, his message was for Biden’s son, Hunter, warning him he could go to jail unless he complied with the House Oversight Committee’s subpoena demanding he testify during a closed-door deposition in front of GOP members.

Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, had consistently told the committee his client was willing to testify during an open, public hearing but not in a closed-door session because of concerns that committee members might selectively leak portions of his testimony or mischaracterize it. Yet, Meuser saw the situation as one of unchecked entitlement. “Hunter is used to doing whatever he wants,” he told Newsmax. He pointed out that a Congressional subpoena wasn’t optional. Instead, it was a legal demand to testify. “So if he doesn’t, he’ll … go to jail,” Meuser said.

Biden did appear on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning and held a press conference telling the Oversight Committee he was there and ready to testify in an open, public hearing. But in a joint statement, Comer and House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) told reporters that the president’s son “defied lawful subpoenas, and they would now initiate contempt of Congress proceedings.”

Previously, the Justice Department pursued criminal prosecutions against presidential advisors Steve Bannon and Peter Navarro for refusing to appear in response to House subpoenas to answer questions about events leading to the January 6, 2021, incident. Courts convicted both Bannon and Navarro.

The Newsmax hosts also asked Meuser whether he thought the House would vote to authorize a formal impeachment inquiry into President Biden. The lawmaker told the reporters he believed the resolution would pass. He was correct. On December 13, the House passed two resolutions authorizing and supporting an impeachment inquiry.

The first, HR 918, directed the House Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means committees to continue their investigations to determine whether sufficient grounds exist for the House to impeach Biden. The second, HR 917, authorized House Oversight, Ways and Means, or the Judiciary Committee Chairs to enforce subpoenas they issue as part of the impeachment inquiry.
