"It needs to be e behind closed doors. And, of course, Hunter and his allies want to make it the public spectacle where it’s about the drugs and the prostitutes and or poor Hunter’s problem," Bruner stated.
"They need it behind closed doors so they can really drill down, get to the meat of the problem, follow the money, reference the emails that are so damning against Hunter and even Joe," he added.

"Speaker Mike Johnson said Saturday that he thinks House Republicans have the votes to launch a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, insisting that such a move has 'become a necessary step,'" NBC News reported.
“Elise and I both served on the impeachment defense team of Donald Trump twice, when the Democrats used it for brazen, partisan political purposes. We decried that use of it. This is very different. Remember, we are the rule-of-law team. We have to do it very methodically,” he said.

"Republicans have spent months investigating Biden and his son Hunter’s business dealings, hoping to find improprieties they could use as the basis for impeachment," the Guardian reported.
"The full House has not yet voted to formally authorize an impeachment inquiry, as some Republicans have publicly expressed doubts about whether there is enough evidence to justify such action," it noted.
The news comes as first son Hunter Biden is expected to soon testify before the House Oversight Committee regarding international business deals involving his father.
The issues could complicate President Joe Biden's efforts to run for reelection next year in his likely rematch with former President Donald Trump.
The impeachment could look bad for Biden but it's still a big question whether lawmakers will move forward with any action on the issue.
