Gosar Statement in Response to Hunter Biden Skipping Congressional Deposition
Washington, December 13, 2023
Washington, DC -- Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-09), issued the following statement in response to Hunter Biden refusing to appear before the House Oversight and Accountability Committee:
“Hunter Biden willfully ignoring a legally issued subpoena related to his role in the Biden Crime Syndicate’s corruption and abuse of power is nothing short of obstruction of justice and he should be immediately held in contempt of Congress. Today, I spoke with Speaker Johnson about proceeding with a contempt resolution.
The rule of law applies to everyone. No one is above the law, including the president or the president’s son. Failing to appear in response to a lawfully issued subpoena is not an option, rather it is contempt of Congress and a crime. Americans deserve to hear the facts. Hunter Biden must appear before Congress to answer questions about the overwhelming evidence of corruption.
I am publicly calling on the FBI’s Washington Field Office and the DOJ Fraud, Public Corruption, and Civil Rights Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, to immediately bring charges against Hunter Biden and prosecute his recalcitrance to the full extent of the law, as it did with Trump associates, Mr. Bannon and Mr. Navarro. Anything less is additional evidence of public corruption, concluded Congressman Paul Gosar.
