(TheProudRepublic.com) – In what many see as a display of cowardice, Hunter Biden surprisingly appeared at a congressional hearing about his being held in contempt of Congress, only to quickly exit the room when GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene started speaking.
See the video below.
During a House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday, Hunter Biden made a sudden departure amidst a debate on whether he should be held in contempt of Congress.
His unexpected attendance at the beginning of the hearing resulted in immediate friction between Republican and Democratic members.
The first son’s unexpected presence was immediately blasted by US Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC).
“My first question is who bribed Hunter Biden to be here today? That’s my first question. Second question, you are the epitome of white privilege. Coming into the Oversight Committee, spitting in our face, ignoring a congressional subpoena to be deposed. What are you afraid of? You have no balls to come up there,” Mace stated.
After that, she called for his immediate arrest and imprisonment over his defiance for the rule of law.
Hunter Biden hastily left the room as another conservative Congresswoman, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), began her questioning.
“I think it’s clear and obvious for everyone watching this hearing today that Hunter Biden is terrified of strong conservative Republican women because he can’t even face my words as I was about to speak to him. What a coward,” MTG said.
After the hearing, Hunter’s defense counsel, Abbe D. Lowell, addressed the media, criticizing the House Republicans’ efforts to hold his client in contempt and highlighting Hunter’s willingness to testify publicly rather than in a closed session.
“The Republican chairs today, then, are commandeering an unprecedented resolution to hold someone in contempt who has offered to publicly answer all their proper questions,” Lowell stated.
During Hunter Biden’s exit from the Rayburn House Office Building, a reporter questioned him about his preference for crack cocaine.
Hunter has previously admitted to struggling with crack addiction, a topic he discussed in his 2021 memoir, “Beautiful Things.”
His indictment in California reveals tax-related issues that persisted beyond his claimed sobriety period.
Fox News reporter Hillary Vaughn pressed Hunter about his father’s alleged involvement in his foreign business ventures.
In response, Hunter asked, “Do you have a dad? Does he call you?”
Hunter Biden’s arraignment in California is imminent, with charges including nine federal tax violations and three felonies for failing to pay over $1 million in taxes.
He also faces three federal gun charges in Delaware, to which he has pled not guilty.
