Hunter lied under oath according to Republican lawmakers

 May 23, 2024

During Hunter Biden's congressional deposition earlier this year, Republicans in the House of Representatives have uncovered information that they claim indicates "indisputably" that he lied under oath on many dates. 

For the purpose of discussing papers that are protected under IRS code 6103, which is a section of the tax code that maintains the confidentiality of some information, the House Ways and Means Committee held a mark-up session on Wednesday, as Fox News reported.

In the House Ways and Means Committee, it is considered a criminal offense to discuss the material without first formally releasing it to the public.

The panel made the decision to make such material public on Wednesday.

Committee's Comments

"Hunter Biden has shown once again he believes there are two systems of justice in this country – one for his family, and one for everyone else," House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith told Fox News Digital on Wednesday.

"Not only did Hunter Biden refuse to comply with his initial subpoena until threatened with criminal contempt, but he then came before Congress and lied.

"The Ways and Means Committee’s investigation, and the documents released today, are not part of a personal vendetta against Hunter Biden, but are meant to ensure the equal application of the law."

During his deposition, Hunter Biden allegedly lied at least three times, according to Smith, who stated that the materials that the committee collected reveal this information.

Hunter's Reaction

Following the publication of the article, Abbe Lowell, the attorney for Hunter Biden, issued a statement in which she claimed that any of the three examples were false.

"Here they go again, grasping at straws and twisting Hunter’s testimony to try to revive an impeachment inquiry that was a complete and utter failure," Lowell said.

Smith noted that "lying during sworn testimony is a felony offense that the Department of Justice has prosecuted numerous individuals for in recent years, and the American people expect the same accountability for the son of the President of the United States."

More from Smith

"Hunter Biden’s lies under oath, and obstruction of a congressional investigation into his family’s potential corruption, calls into question other pieces of his testimony," Smith said.

"The newly released evidence affirms, once again, the only witnesses who can be trusted to tell the truth in this investigation are the IRS whistleblowers."

In his deposition, Hunter Biden claimed that he did not control bank accounts; however, the committee asserts that he misrepresented his role working for Rosemont Seneca and that he actually did control bank accounts.
