Hunter Biden's lawyer sent a letter on Wednesday saying that Biden won't attend a public hearing before the House Oversight Committee. The letter mentioned that Biden and his team were not asked about the March 20 date and wouldn't be able to testify, so he refused the invitation to the event

Hunter Biden’s lawyer released a letter on Wednesday stating that his client will not appear before the House Oversight Committee for a public hearing.

The letter from Biden’s lawyer Abbe Lowell stated that Biden and his team were not consulted about the March 20 date and wouldn’t be available to testify, so he “declines your invitation to this carnival side show.” Lowell took several swipes at House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), including “I thought even you would recognize your baseless impeachment proceeding was dead.”

Another zinger:

I must confess my surprise by your hasty request. After that six-plus hour deposition on February 28, 2024, along with the realization that your inquiry was based on a patchwork of conspiracies spun by convicted liars and a charged Russian spy, I thought even you would recognize your baseless impeachment proceeding was dead.

Lowell also took the opportunity to slam House Republicans for turning a blind eye to former President Donald Trump and his own family’s foreign business dealings. MSNBC’s Julie Tsirkin reported:

His attorney says, in part, “if you’re serious about pursuing this oversight purpose in a legitimate and bipartisan fashion, you would hold a hearing with relatives of former President Trump about whom you indicated you would ask.”

Biden sat for a six-hour hearing behind closed doors in late February, during which time Comer didn’t ask Biden any questions. Biden was being questioned as part of the Republican effort to impeach his father, President Joe Biden, based on claims that the president profited from his son’s foreign business dealings despite having no evidence to back these claims up.
