Hunter Biden finally testified before Congress and, unsurprisingly, tried to cast himself as a victim rather than take responsibility for his alleged corrupt actions to bring millions of dollars into the family coffers. 

The New York Times writes, “Hunter Biden, the president’s son, sharply rebuked House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry during a closed-door deposition on Wednesday, condemning their investigation as a ‘partisan political pursuit’ that was based on a ‘false premise’ and fueled by ‘lies.’

Conducted in an office building on Capitol Hill, the interview was the latest bid by Republicans to unearth evidence that President Biden was inappropriately involved in his son’s foreign business dealings. So far, their impeachment investigation has turned up no proof.

Hunter Biden, 54, sought to refute G.O.P. claims about his relationship with his father, making clear in his opening statement, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, that he planned to cede no ground.”

The Times reported that Hunter whined, “You have trafficked in innuendo, distortion and sensationalism — all the while ignoring the clear and convincing evidence staring you in the face. You do not have evidence to support the baseless and MAGA-motivated conspiracies about my father because there isn’t any.” 

Despite claiming that “there was no evidence,” according to those in the room, Biden verified one of the key claims against the president in relation to his family’s alleged influence-peddling scheme. 

Breitbart received exclusive access from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to what happened behind the closed doors of the interview and the Georgia. The congresswoman claims that the Crown Prince of the Biden Family admitted that he aimed to cut Joe in.

“At one point, we asked Hunter about the ten percent for the ‘big guy’,” Greene said. “We showed him the email that that it laid it all out.”

“And he said, ‘Oh, that was after my father left office,” Greene recounted from the deposition.

Greene said Hunter then tried to excuse the ten percent stake for Joe Biden: 

“What’s wrong with having a pie-in-the-sky idea? When he [Joe Biden] left office in 2017, it thought he was done. I had no idea was gonna run for president. What’s wrong with just some pie?’ … thinking that he [Joe Biden] could be in the business.”

While Hunter did not deny that Joe Biden was the “big guy,” he did deny that the business plan called for a ten percent cut, Greene explained.

Hunter insisted that when the agreement was eventually signed, Joe was left out of the deal. 

The New York Post noted that “The statement represents the first time the 54-year-old Hunter has admitted that his former business partner James Gilliar was referring to Joe Biden when he raised the prospect on May 13, 2017, of the first son holding a 10% stake in the lucrative joint venture involving CEFC China Energy “for the big guy.” 

The email, found on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, was first reported by The Post in October 2020 as part of a bombshell series of reports on the first son’s influence-peddling schemes.”

The president lashed out at a Post reporter in June 2023 when pressed about being repeatedly referred to as “the big guy,” a moniker that his brother Frank also used in addition to several of Hunter’s associates.

‘Why do you ask such a dumb question?’ Biden shot back.”

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) referred to the arrangement with CEFC China Energy as ‘money laundering’ while talking to reporters. He highlighted a $40,000 check that Joe Biden received from his brother James, following what he described as a ‘complex financial transaction.’

Following the interview with Hunter, Comer told reporters that the impeachment inquiry against President Biden would move into its “next phase.”

But Comer claimed that Hunter’s deposition “proves several bits of our evidence that we’ve been conducting throughout this investigation,” wrote Fox News.

Comer added that “there are also some contradictory statements that I think need further review. So this impeachment inquiry will now go to the next phase, which will be a public hearing.”

The chairman emphasized that the president’s son and his attorney have “demanded” a public hearing following the deposition.

“Just as I said, when we said we were going to do the deposition first, we will have a public hearing next,” he explained. “So I think that the public hearing hopefully will clear up some discrepancies between some of the statements that were made between some of the associates and what we heard today.”

Maybe Hunter should have been careful for what he wished for.
