Dems block Congressional subpoena for Hunter Biden to testify

House Democrats blocked a motion by House Republicans to subpoena Hunter Biden in an effort to understand more about his foreign business dealings that have garnered national attention in the news media.

According to a report by Fox News, the House GOP says that Democrats “refuse to hold Hunter accountable for his shady business dealings,” following the party’s denial of the request to require the first son to testify.

The representatives in question were the leftist members of the House Oversight and Reform Committee who shot down Republicans’ motion to bring in the younger Biden as a witness about his part in an effort to electrify the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) fleet of vehicles.

“Democrats just denied our motion to subpoena Hunter Biden,” the GOP members of the committee tweeted. “They refuse to hold Hunter accountable for his shady business dealings that make us more dependent on China for renewable energy. It’s past time for accountability.”

The motion was made by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), who requested that the president’s son be brought in as a witness due to what he called Hunter Biden’s “invaluable” expertise regarding cobalt mining.

“I just made a motion to subpoena Hunter Biden as a witness for the House Oversight and Reform Committee’s hearing on electrifying [the USPS],” Biggs tweeted. “Hunter sold a U.S. cobalt mine to a Chinese company. Cobalt is necessary for electric car production. Hunter’s expertise is invaluable!”

This comes after House Republicans in the Oversight and Reform Committee just last week called on Hunter Biden to testify according to a letter from ranking member Rep. James Comer (R-KY).

“House Committee on Oversight and Reform Republicans request the attendance and testimony of Hunter Biden,” Comer said in the letter to Chairwoman Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y.

It has been suggested that Hunter Biden had part in negotiating position with Chinese officials and that Hunter Biden was “part-owner of a venture involved in the $3.8 billion purchase by a Chinese conglomerate of one of the world’s largest cobalt deposits.”
