Hunter Biden said Wednesday that his father “didn’t become involved” in the business he runs. He also criticized House Republicans for “hunting” and “partisan political pursuit”, as well as the impeachment investigation into his father.

Hunter Biden gave a deposition behind closed doors before the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees. Hunter Biden stated that Republicans had no evidence against his dad “because there isn’t any” in his opening statement.

Hunter Biden said to the Committees that his presence on Wednesday was meant to provide them with factual evidence, which would end the false premise in this investigation. I didn’t involve my father as a practicing attorney, in domestic and international transactions, or investments, as a member of a board, or as an artist, in any part of my business.

Several witnesses have testified in similar proceedings, including my uncle, former business colleagues, and former business partners.

The first son claimed that the committees had been “hunting me” for over a year in their partisan political pursuit against his father. You have used innuendos, distortions, and sensationalism while ignoring the obvious and convincing evidence in front of you.

He said, “You don’t have any evidence to back up the MAGA-motivated and baseless conspiracies against my father. There isn’t one.”

The first son says the House Republicans have “built their entire house of cards based on lies told by witnesses in the past”. Hunter Biden attacked his former business associates Tony Bobulinski and Jason Galanis, who both testified in the impeachment investigation, and ex-FBI Agent Alexander Smirnov.

He replied, “Yes, these are lies.” He responded, “Yes.”

In reflecting on his “mistakes”, Hunter Biden said that he had “squandered the opportunities and privileges afforded me”. “I am sorry for my mistakes.”

“I am responsible for all my mistakes and shortcomings,” he said. “Not my father who has spent his entire career in public service.”

Hunter Biden, reflecting on his “battle against addiction,” said that his father was always there for him.

“He saved my life.” He testified that his love and support allowed him to rebuild his life as a husband, father, son, and brother. “What he received in return for his loving and supportive parenting was a barrage of hate-filled conspiracies that hatched the sham impeachment investigation and continue to fuel unrelenting attacks against him and myself.”

Hunter Biden is the son of Joe Biden and speaks to reporters on the U.S. Capitol grounds in Washington, DC, December 13, 2023. Hunter Biden criticized Republican agents looking into his business affairs, insisting that he would only testify at a congressional hearing outside the Capitol.

Hunter Biden referred to the records of his texts, emails, and other communications that were kept by committees.

He said that Republicans altered documents, and removed his communications from context. They also selected financial records as well as other records to distort the truth.

He said: “If you do it again, I will expose your tactics and prove that my father never had anything to do with my business.”

“His testimonies will end this baseless, destructive, and partisan politics charade,” stated the first son.

He said: “You wasted valuable resources and time attacking me and my wife for your political gains.” You should have been focusing on the urgent problems that require your attention in this nation.”

Hunter Biden gave testimony after his uncle James Biden, testified in an impeachment investigation last week. James Biden said that President Biden has “never had any involvement” or “any direct or indirect financial interests” in his businesses.

House Republicans heard Tony Bobulinski testify that Joe Biden had been involved in family business earlier this month. Bobulinski claimed to have also met Biden personally.

Rob Walker, a former Bobulinski associate and businessman, testified in court that Joe Biden had met the chairman of CEFC (the Chinese energy company with which his brother and son were involved).

The House Oversight Committee stated that after Walker’s testimony it “can confirm Joe Biden has met with almost every foreign national who gave money to his son.”

The White House, as well as House Democrats, have called the investigation unfounded. Republicans claim, on the other hand, that they’ve barely scratched their investigation.

James Comer, R. Ky, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, stated in a release on Tuesday that the House Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means Committees discovered evidence that Joe Biden’s family used ‘the Brand’ to enrich them.

Hunter Biden is a key witness in our impeachment investigation of President Joe Biden. He said: “We’ve got evidence that Joe Biden has met nearly all the foreign business partners who funneled money into the Bidens. Committees have the authority to question Hunter Biden on the evidence.

He said that the committee will “continue their investigation” to “determine if articles of impeachment are warranted”
