The Bidens ‘are the ones that got played’ by Hunter’s surprise contempt hearing stunt


The House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress after his surprise appearance at the meeting which some feel may have backfired on the Biden family.

The Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) noted how the Bidens “got played” due to the stunt pulled by President Joe Biden’s son who crashed the hearing Wednesday in a PR stunt that momentarily distracted from the impending vote on the resolution to hold him in contempt due to his flagrant flouting of a subpoena to testify in a closed-door deposition.

“I think that the American people saw the arrogance and entitlement of the president’s son,” Comer said during an interview with NewsNation.

Despite Biden’s dramatic appearance during the panel’s hearing, the House Judiciary Committee approved the resolution in a party-line vote 23-14, setting it up for a full House of Representatives vote next. The final decision on whether to hold the first son in contempt will lie with Attorney General Merrick Garland who will be presented with that decision if the resolution is passed.

While Biden has demanded he be allowed to testify in a public hearing, his appearance on Wednesday did not result in him answering much of anything as the cameras rolled.

“He’s more than welcome to show up for a committee hearing, after a deposition, every investigation, whether it’s a congressional investigation, or whether it’s an investigation by local and law enforcement, they bring people in for depositions at the end of the investigations,” Comer said.

“He showed up. You heard [Rep. Jared] Moskowitz, which you played the clip there that said, ‘Hunter Biden is here to answer questions.’ Two minutes later, his time expired and I recognized Marjorie Taylor Greene, she was going to ask him questions, he ran out of there,” the chairman added.

“So in my opinion, the Biden’s are the ones that got played today,” Comer noted.

“Look, at the end of the day, we have a simple question. What did you do to receive the millions of dollars from our enemies around the world? If he can answer that question, we’ll pretty much be done with him,” the Kentucky Republican continued.

“We’re investigating his father, we’re trying to determine whether or not Joe Biden is compromised because of the millions of dollars his family received from our enemies around the world. We have specific questions. They said he came here to answer questions today. The first question he had he bolted out of there. So I mean, they can try to create a narrative that he was there to answer questions, but when I asked him a question, he left,” Comer said.
