WASHINGTON — Hunter Biden caved Friday and agreed to sit for a deposition in the House impeachment inquiry into his father — moving to avert a vote to hold him in contempt of Congress.
Hunter, 53, waved a white flag in a letter to Congress from his attorney Abbe Lowell.
“If you issue a new proper subpoena, now that there is a duly authorized impeachment inquiry, Mr. Biden will comply for a hearing or deposition. We will accept such a subpoena on Mr. Biden’s behalf,” Lowell wrote.
The House Judiciary and Oversight committees on Wednesday voted to hold Hunter in contempt — after the first son crashed the Oversight hearing, infuriating Republicans after he skipped a scheduled Dec. 13 deposition.
