( – On Tuesday in a letter Abbe Lowell, the attorney of Hunter Biden stated that Biden was willing to testify publicly before the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, which is currently looking into his business activities in connection to an impeachment inquiry opened against his father, President Joe Biden.

In the letter, Lowell proposed a public hearing in response to the committee’s subpoena which had been sent by the committee which is chaired by James Comer (R-Ky.). The subpoena had been sent in early November. Previously the committee had been looking for a closed-door deposition Dec. 13, however, Lowell noted that he did not trust that the Republicans and Comer were going to provide an honest account.

In the letter sent to Comer, Lowell argued that they had seen how they used closed-door sessions to manipulate and misinform the public about the facts of the case. This is why they were suggesting that any meeting should be with open doors. He added that if their efforts are as they claim important to Americans, then Americans should be able to have access to these proceedings.

Lowell further pointed out that Comer had previously suggested that Hunter Biden was “welcome” to appear before the committee.

On Tuesday, the Committee had stated that they were expecting Hunter Biden to appear for a closed-door deposition as well as any public hearing. Comer in a statement noted that House Republicans would not allow Hunter Biden to play by his own rules in the way that he wanted.
