    You can see why the republican house continues to hide their hearings behind closed doors.

    I guess republicans are worried that the public will hear what has been happening in their closed door hearing...

    Of course... the maga supreme court decision today takes away much of the need to prolong this frivolous impeachment hearing...

    Hunter Biden's opening statement:

    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. 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.

    For more than a year, your 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.

    You have built your entire partisan house of cards on lies told by the likes of Gal Luft, Tony Bobulinski, Alexander Smirnov, and Jason Galanis. Luft, who is a fugitive, has been indicted for his lies and other crimes; Smirnov, who has made you dupes in carrying out a Russian disinformation campaign waged against my father, has been indicted for his lies; Bobulinski, who has been exposed for the many false statements he has made, and Galanis, who is serving 14 years in prison for fraud. Rather than follow the facts as they have been laid out before you in bank records, financial statements, correspondence, and other witness testimony, you continue your frantic search to prove the lies you, and those you rely on, keep peddling. Yes, they are lies.

    To be clear, I have made mistakes in my life, and I have squandered opportunities and privileges that were afforded to me. I know that. I am responsible for that. And I am making amends for that. But my mistakes and shortcomings are my own and not my father’s, who has done nothing but devote his entire life to public service and trying to make this country a better place to live.

    During my battle with addiction, my father was there for me. He helped save my life. His love and support made it possible for me to get sober, stay sober and rebuild my life as a father, husband, son, and brother. What he got in return for being a loving and supportive parent is a barrage of hate-filled conspiracy theories that hatched this sham impeachment inquiry and continue to fuel unrelenting personal attacks against him and me.

    Over the last year, Republicans have taken my communications out of context, relied on documents that have been altered, and cherry-picked snippets of financial or other records to misrepresent what really happened. Examples of this include a few references to my family in emails or texts that I sent when I was in the darkest days of my addiction. If you try to do that again today, my answers will reveal your tactics and demonstrate the truth that my father was never involved in any of my businesses.

    My testimony today should 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.

    The testimony was not expected to be videotaped, and the transcript is expected to be released as soon as possible.

    They clearly have nothing. It's a partisan fishing expedition, a complete waste of time for everyone. A shameful misuse of the government's position, doing exactly what they falsely claim the other side did.

    That is all the GOP has - they project what they are doing - or plan to do.....you have to wonder how a guy with an 18% approval rating can keep getting elected ....Mitch McConnel....did they steal that election? They claim that the Dems are weaponizing the DOJ which is what Barr did for Trump.

    The GOP is MOB ruled, they have no honor or integrity, it is a sham.

    Another example that explains why the house magas don't want the hearings to be aired to the public...

    Since the maga house can't connect President Biden with any wrongdoing, they were left with focusing of his son's drug addiction. Not entirely sure this simply made hunter seem more a sympathetic figure to anyone not a maga...
