House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has taken a stand against the outrageous behavior of Hunter Biden, and boy, oh boy, is it about time someone puts their foot down! Comer released a resolution and a detailed report outlining Biden’s contemptuous refusal to comply with a congressional subpoena. It’s like they say, rules are rules, and Hunter Biden seems to think he’s above them.
Here’s the Contempt of Congress Resolution Against Hunter Biden

Hunter Biden’s refusal to cooperate and his theatrical press conference antics is nothing short of disrespectful. Instead of honoring the subpoena and participating in a closed-door deposition with House investigators, he pulls a stunt at Capitol Hill. Come on, Hunter, this isn’t a reality TV show – this is Congress! You can’t just skip out on your responsibilities and expect no consequences. That’s not how the world works, buddy.
The resolution is short and to the point – it’s time for consequences. Comer is calling for Hunter Biden to be found in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with the subpoena. And if that’s not enough, he’s also proposing that the Speaker of the House of Representatives take all appropriate action to enforce the subpoena. No more Mr. Nice Guy – it’s time to hold Hunter Biden accountable for his actions.
The accompanying report is a real eye-opener. It outlines how Hunter Biden blatantly violated federal law and must face the music for his “flagrant defiance” of the Committee’s deposition subpoenas. In the report, Comer recommends that Congress find Hunter Biden in contempt for his failure to comply with the subpoena. It’s about time someone stood up to these antics and held Hunter Biden responsible for his uncooperative behavior.
Not only that, but the report also points out that Hunter Biden’s testimony is crucial for the impeachment inquiry into his father, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. The report suggests that President Biden knew about and even benefited from his son’s foreign business interests. Hunter Biden’s refusal to comply with the subpoena is preventing the Committee from carrying out its Constitutional oversight function and its impeachment inquiry. It’s a serious matter, and it’s time for Hunter Biden to face the consequences.
Now, the House Oversight Committee is gearing up to address this matter at a markup on Wednesday, and it’s sure to be a showdown. With all the drama unfolding, it’s a busy week on Capitol Hill, with impeachment hearings related to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ conduct amid the border crisis and looming government shutdown deadlines. It’s a real circus out there, but at least someone is finally taking a stand against Hunter Biden’s antics. It’s time for accountability, and Chairman Comer is leading the charge.
