President Joe Biden smirked and refused to answer questions from reporters on Wednesday when pressed about his son, Hunter Biden, defying a congressional subpoena.

Biden’s remarks came after Hunter Biden skipped a closed-door deposition with congressional investigators, likely paving the way to contempt of Congress proceedings that House Republicans have been threatening if he did not comply with the subpoena.

At the end of giving remarks at a National Infrastructure Advisory Council event, Biden asked reporters to step out.

A reporter shouted at Biden, “Mr. President, should your son have defied the subpoena?”

Biden smirked at the question and refused to answer.


Back in 2021, Biden was asked by reporters if people who defied congressional subpoenas should be criminally prosecuted by the Department of Justice.


“Yes,” Biden said.

Hunter Biden, who is facing numerous criminal charges in two separate indictments, claimed that the House committee’s investigation was “illegitimate” and full of “distortions, manipulated evidence, and lies.”

“For six years, MAGA Republicans, including members of the House committees who are in a closed-door session right now, have impugned my character, invaded my privacy, attacked my wife, my children, my family, and my friends,” he claimed. “They have ridiculed my struggle with addiction, they have belittled my recovery, and they have tried to dehumanize me, all to embarrass the image of my father, who has devoted his entire life to public service. For six years I have been the target of the unrelenting Trump attack machine, shouting, ‘Where’s Hunter?’”

“Well, here’s my answer,” he continued. “I am here. Let me state as clearly as I can: My father was not financially involved in my business, not as a practicing lawyer, not as a board member of Burisma, not in my partnership with a Chinese private businessman, not in my investments at home nor abroad and certainly not as an artist.”
