An legal professional for Hunter Biden stated on Friday that the president’s son will adjust to congressional subpoenas for a deposition with Republican investigators in the event that they concern a brand new one — a stark shift from his earlier demand for a public listening to of his testimony.

Biden’s newest transfer within the bitter back-and-forth with GOP Home members got here two days after they handed resolutions urging that he be present in contempt of Congress for defying their prior subpoenas.

These subpoenas ordered Biden to sit down for a closed-door deposition as a part of an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

The complete Home of Representatives is poised to vote on the contempt discovering subsequent week.

Hunter Biden’s legal professional, Abbe Lowell, argued in a letter to 2 Home Republican committee chairmen that their earlier subpoenas have been legally invalid.

“In the event you concern a new correct subpoena, now that there is a duly licensed impeachment inquiry, Mr. Biden will comply for a listening to or deposition,” Lowell wrote within the letter.

“We are going to settle for such a subpoena on Mr. Biden’s behalf.”
