Senator Hawley Supports Public Hearing for Hunter Biden Testimony

Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) has diverged from House Republican leaders by expressing his support for allowing Hunter Biden to testify in a public hearing rather than in a closed-door deposition before the House committee conducting the investigation.

In an interview with Fox Business correspondent Hillary Vaughn, Hawley stated, “My view is that the American people have a right to see, and also, you know, they should evaluate this for themselves.” He added, “Open the doors so you all could report on it.”

Hawley’s comments come after Abbe Lowell, Hunter Biden’s attorney, sent a letter on Tuesday requesting that his client be permitted to testify publicly instead of in a closed-door deposition scheduled for December 13.

Lowell wrote that closed-door sessions have been used to manipulate and distort facts, suggesting that public hearings would bring transparency to the proceedings. However, Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), Chair of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, denied the request for the December testimony to be public.

In response, Comer stated, “Hunter Biden is trying to play by his own rules instead of following the rules required of everyone else. That won’t stand with House Republicans.” Comer affirmed that while Hunter Biden must appear for the deposition, he should be given the opportunity to testify publicly at a later date.

The decision to reject Biden’s request for a public hearing drew backlash from Democrats on the committee. Ranking member Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) criticized Republicans, condemning the denial as “an epic humiliation” and a sign that they are not interested in the facts or confident in their case.

A spokesperson for Hawley clarified that the senator did not mention Comer by name in his remarks. Further clarification was not provided.
