An inquiry, because Republicans haven't been able adequately damage Biden's reputation with just committee hearings to discuss the flimsy claims and allegations.

Thank you for posting the link. Such an enormous waste of time. I agree with Moskowitz. If they think they have so much evidence, then just impeach.

The Republican-led House is on track to approve a formal impeachment inquiry into President Biden on Wednesday, pushing forward with a yearlong G.O.P. investigation that has failed to produce evidence of anything approaching high crimes or misdemeanors.

Republicans say the vote, which is expected in the evening, is needed to give them full authority to carry out their investigations amid anticipated legal challenges from the White House. Democrats have denounced the inquiry as a fishing expedition and a political stunt.

Since winning the majority, House Republicans have been investigating myriad aspects of Mr. Biden's family and administration, hunting for evidence that could be used to prove he is corrupt and should be impeached. Former President Donald J. Trump, still seething over being impeached twice, has urged on their investigation at every step

Hunter Biden, the president's son, appeared on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning to offer to publicly testify in House Republicans' impeachment investigation into his father, though he insisted he would not appear for a private deposition they scheduled over his refusals.

The younger Mr. Biden, who has been served a subpoena to testify, spoke to reporters in a hastily called news conference outside the Capitol near the Senate, across the complex from a House office building where Republican lawmakers were waiting to question him behind closed doors.

Our tax dollars at work. I hope democrats can flip the house in 2024 just so I don't have to turn on the TV or open a news page and see that clown Comer. 

Insisting they can only interview the younger Biden behind closed doors sure sounds like a witch hunt. What are they going to do, through him in a pond to see if he sinks?

I wonder how Joe feels about Hunter not following the subpoena?  Wonder if he'll say the DOJ should prosecute?

Do you believe the younger Biden should follow the law and appear per his subpoena?

I do, but to be clear he's willing to testify just doesn't want to do it in private.  Too bad and they can move forward to hold him in contempt.  He almost sounds like Trump in his "they're out to get me" victimhood stance.  Pass the popcorn please.

He will likely not communicate at all with the DOJ or offer a suggestion as to how the DOJ should proceed.  He'll be asked about it incessantly by the media.  

I do recall that chairman Comer made the public promise that witnesses could choose between private deposition or public hearing.  The younger Biden asked for and showed up for a public hearing.  I wonder why that wasn't satisfactory.

Sure.  Maybe they should demand that he be detained rather than accommodate his request for a public hearing.  Since the fellow is just a private citizen, the function of government will not be adversely affected by any punishment House Republicans might like to consider.

I myself would prefer it be public.  But also to be clear they do have good reasons for it to be behind closed doors.  It's not a unusual occurrence.
