Comer: Hunter Defying Subpoena Reveals ‘Arrogance And Entitlement’

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) slammed Hunter Biden’s “arrogance and entitlement” on Thursday, arguing that Hunter defying a congressional subpoena was “typical” of the Biden family — as they don’t believe that the law applies to them.

Comer made the comments during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Mornings With Maria,” where he discussed the aftermath of Hunter Biden’s decision to defy a congressional subpoena and instead hold a public press conference on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. While speaking, Hunter specifically made sure to deny his father’s “financial” involvement in the family’s foreign business dealings. Later on Wednesday, Comer and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan announced that they would be initiating contempt of Congress proceedings against Hunter Biden for failing to appear for the scheduled deposition.

“He did it in a typical Biden fashion,” Comer told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo. “He showed the world the amount of arrogance and entitlement that he believes he has because he’s a Biden… he doesn’t think the rules apply to him. We issued him a lawful subpoena. We’ve spent 10 months building a case of corruption against the Biden family. We have their bank records. I think everyone in America knows by now, even the people that are all in for Joe Biden, that the family was influence peddling.”

“We want to now bring him in and ask him what exactly he did to receive the tens of millions of dollars from our enemies around the world,” the Oversight Committee chairman added. “And, most importantly, we want to know about Joe’s role. We already know from Devon Archer that the Bidens were selling the Biden brand. We want to know exactly what that entailed. He goes and he tries to play the sympathy card with the reporters. Said he was there to talk, then got in his car and drove off. Typical Biden fashion.”

Following Hunter Biden’s refusal to appear before Congress, the Republican-led House of Representatives held a vote to launch a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden. The resolution passed along party lines in a 221-212 vote.
