On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee approved a resolution to charge Hunter Biden with contempt of Congress.
The resolution gained approval along party lines, with a vote of 23-14, following Hunter Biden’s refusal to comply with a lawful congressional subpoena and testify in a closed-door deposition.
The next step involves the full House of Representatives voting on the resolution to officially hold Hunter in contempt.

Hunter Biden made a surprise appearance on Capitol Hill Wednesday during a session to discuss moving forward with a vote on holding him in contempt of Congress for ignoring a lawful subpoena.
Hunter sat in a congressional hearing room, openly mocking the Republican committee members responsible for investigating his business dealings and compliance with congressional subpoenas.
Representative Nancy Mace (R-SC) tore into Hunter, directly confronting him on the motives behind his appearance and hinting at a potential bribe.
“Thank you, Mr. Chairman, Chairman Comer. First of all, my first question is who bribed Hunter Biden to be here today? That’s my first question,” Mace asked.
Mace proceeded to lambast Biden, accusing him of embodying white privilege and disregarding the legislative process.
“Second question. You are the epitome of white privilege. Coming into the oversight committee, spitting in our face, ignoring a congressional subpoena to be deposed. What are you afraid of? You have no balls to come up here,” she asserted.
Tensions escalated as Mace called for immediate action against Biden. “I think that Hunter Biden should be arrested right here, right now, and go straight to jail. Our nation is founded on the rule,” Mace added.

Immediately after GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene attempted to question Hunter, he abruptly stormed out of the congressional hearing like a bratty child.
“Excuse me, Hunter. Apparently, you’re afraid of my words?” taunted Rep. Greene.
