Tea Party Patriots Action Urges House Committees to Find Hunter Biden in Contempt of Congress
Atlanta, GA – Today, the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Accountability Committee are considering a resolution recommending that the House find Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress, after the president’s son failed to comply with a subpoena for closed-door testimony and instead held a press conference on Capitol grounds. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:
“This is a no-brainer: The president’s son willfully ignored a congressional subpoena, and then salted the wound by holding a press conference on the grounds of the Capitol to drive home his point — that he’s a Biden, the son of the president, so he’s safe, and he can ignore the rules that bind the rest of us. He believes he’s not going to be prosecuted by a Biden-appointed U.S. Attorney, so he believes he can taunt the congressmen who are conducting an investigation into his family’s corrupt business practices. What Hunter Biden did in holding that press conference was worse than simply defying a congressional subpoena. He not only should be held in contempt of Congress, he must be held in contempt of Congress.
“Former Trump aides Stephen Bannon and Peter Navarro similarly defied congressional subpoenas. The House voted to hold both in contempt of Congress, and then referred both to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia for prosecution. U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves prosecuted both, and he won convictions against both for contempt of Congress.
“Even though they think they are, the president and his son are not above the law. The House investigation into the Biden crime family is legitimate and important, and holding Hunter Biden in contempt is a necessary action to keep the investigation moving. The House committees must pass the resolution today, and the full House should follow promptly.”
