The House Judiciary and Oversight Committees released reports on Monday recommending that Hunter Biden be held in contempt of Congress for his “flagrant defiance” of a Congressional subpoena related to the impeachment inquiry of President Joe Biden.
Hunter Biden “must be held accountable for his unlawful actions,” read the reports, echoing a joint statement by Oversight Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-Kentucky) and Judiciary Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) issued last week, which said that Hunter Biden’s defiance of Congress “warrants referral to the appropriate United States Attorney’s Office for prosecution.”
Should the Republican-led committees pass the resolutions to hold Hunter Biden in contempt, a full House vote will be triggered. The lower chamber, which is controlled by a slim Republican majority, could then vote to refer the case to the Department of Justice, which would ultimately decide whether or not to pursue criminal charges against Biden.
