GOP stunned by Hunter Biden's offer for a public hearing
Republicans have obsessed over President Joe Biden’s son Hunter for years, hoping they can somehow smear his father by association. Yet the past year of nonstop House investigations have uncovered nothing of consequence, and the most that a federal investigation on Hunter dug up was some minor tax issues and lying on a gun application. Big deal.
But Republican incompetence on the matter reached absurd new heights today. Having been subpoenaed for a closed-door hearing, Hunter instead offered to show up on any day of the Republicans’ choosing … for a public hearing. The panicked Republican response—and their refusal of the offer—has exposed the sheer insincerity of the House Oversight Committee's entire “investigation.”
“Hunter Biden is trying to play by his own rules instead of following the rules required of everyone else,” said Rep. James Comer, who chairs the committee. “That won’t stand with House Republicans.” Republican Rep. Ben Cline claimed that Hunter’s offer to testify in public was part of a Democratic scheme to block Comer’s investigation. None of that made a lick of sense.
Read the full story to delight in Rep. Jamie Raskin’s pitch-perfect response.
And for more fun, watch one Republican admit on Fox News that all of these so-called investigations have produced zero evidence of any corruption on the part of Joe Biden.
