First son Hunter Biden made a shameless plea for public sympathy outside the Capitol on Wednesday — skipping a transcribed interview with the House Oversight Committee under the threat of being held in contempt.

“For six years, I’ve been the target of the unrelenting Trump attack machine shouting, ‘Where’s Hunter?’ Well, here’s my answer, ‘I am here,’” said Hunter, 53. 

“Let me state as clearly as I can: my father was not financially involved in my business, not as a practicing lawyer, not as a board member of Burisma. Not my partnership with a Chinese private businessman, not in my investments at home nor abroad, and certainly not as an artist.”

Oversight Member Indicates They Might Hold Swalwell in Contempt for Arranging Hunter's Capitol Remarks

Hunter Biden was supposed to comply with a subpoena and give a closed-door deposition to the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday. Instead, he showed up on the Senate side of the Capitol and gave a speech attacking the Republicans, on the steps in an area known as the "Senate Swamp." Somehow, "swamp" was apropos for the bunch of bull that Hunter put out there, as he gave the Oversight Committee the finger and blew off the subpoena. 

 

That now opens Hunter up for a contempt charge, and House Oversight has indicated that they are starting the process. 

That also raised potential questions for Joe Biden, who knew what Hunter was going to say ahead of time, raising the question of whether he was involved in any obstruction. That could also potentially be an impeachable offense. Plus, Joe Biden had previously said people who defied subpoenas should be prosecuted. 

But, there was another part of the story of those remarks that raised a lot of eyebrows -- why was Hunter Biden showing up there with Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA)? 

Turns out that it was Swalwell who arranged for him to speak there. Swalwell admitted he did it. 

Describing the president’s son as “a recovering addict who has admitted his mistakes and has been clean for many years,” Swalwell said the former president “has directed MAGA Republicans to weaponize Hunter’s past addiction to attack President Biden, someone Trump and House Republicans won’t acknowledge won the 2020 election.”

“There is absolutely zero evidence Hunter or his father acted corruptly,” Swalwell added. “So I’m not going to sit quietly and let MAGA Republicans do Trump’s bidding in Congress.”

So, you had a member of Congress helping someone who is blowing off a Congressional subpoena. At the very least, Swalwell seems to be serving Hunter Biden rather than his obligations to Congress and the law. That could be a bit of a problem for Swalwell, who was chucked off the House Intelligence Committee for his relationship with a woman believed to be a Chinese operative. Funny how he's helping the Bidens, who are being investigated over alleged corruption connected to the Chinese. :snip:
