Republicans vote to advance Hunter Biden contempt of Congress citation following his made-for-TV 'publicity stunt' with chaotic appearance on Capitol Hill | 10 Jan 2024 | Republicans have voted to recommend Hunter Biden officially be held in contempt of Congress for refusing to sit for a closed-door deposition as part of their impeachment investigation into his father Joe. The House Judiciary Committee was first to vote to approve the contempt resolution 23-14 along party lines, teeing up a full floor vote as early as next week. If that gets cleared, Hunter's case would be referred to the Biden-led Department of Justice for prosecution and he could face up to a year in prison if convicted. The House Oversight Committee, which held a simultaneous hearing, also voted 25-21 to condemn Hunter and recommend contempt charges. Proceedings were delayed after Hunter sparked utter chaos in Congress by showing up on Capitol Hill. He was accused of a "ridiculous PR stunt" by making a shock appearance to face Republicans threatening to hold him in contempt.
