Hunter Biden testifies he 'did not involve' his father in his businesses, calls impeachment inquiry 'baseless'

Hunter Biden testified Wednesday that he “did not involve” his father in his businesses, while blasting House Republicans for having “hunted” him in their “partisan political pursuit” and impeachment inquiry into his father.

Hunter Biden appeared on Capitol Hill Wednesday for his closed-door, deposition at the House Oversight and Judiciary committees. Hunter Biden said Republicans have no evidence against his father “because there isn’t any,” according to an opening statement obtained by Fox News.

“I am here today to provide the Committees with the one uncontestable fact that should end the false premise of this inquiry: I did not involve my father in my business,” Hunter Biden testified Wednesday morning. “Not while I was a practicing lawyer, not in my investments or transactions domestic or international, not as a board member, and not as an artist. Never.” 

“You read this fact in the many letters that have been sent to you over the last year as part of your so-called impeachment investigation. You heard this fact when I said it weeks ago, standing outside of this building. You heard this fact from a parade of other witnesses – former colleagues and business partners of mine, including my uncle – who have testified before you in similar proceedings. And now, today, you hear this fact directly from me,” he continued in his opening statement.

The first son said that for more than a year, the committees “have hunted me in your partisan political pursuit of my dad. You have trafficked in innuendo, distortion, and sensationalism — all the while ignoring the clear and convincing evidence staring you in the face. ” 

“You do not have evidence to support the baseless and MAGA-motivated conspiracies about my father because there isn’t any,” he testified. 

The first son said he hopes his testimony will “put an end to this baseless and destructive political charade.” 

“You have wasted valuable time and resources attacking me and my family for your own political gain when you should be fixing the real problems in this country that desperately need your attention,” he testified.
