The spotlight on Hunter’s business dealings, particularly with Ukrainian firm Burisma Holdings, a Russian billionaire, and multi-millions in Chinese investments, has intensified, and his refusal to comply with the subpoena has added fuel to the political fire.

Press Conference

According to Hunter, “They belittled my recovery, and they have tried to dehumanize me, all to embarrass my father, who has devoted his entire life to public service.” 

“For six years I have been a target of the unrelenting Trump attack team. ‘Where’s Hunter?’ Well, here’s my answer. I am here,” Hunter said.

Although Hunter believes it is a “double standard,” Donald Trump’s son, Don Jr. was called to Congress on multiple occasions.   

Hunter’s critics pointed to 2 of his business partners’ testimony, bank statements, and evidence from the now-infamous laptop.

During the press conference, Hunter Biden asserted that his father, President Joe Biden, was never financially involved in his business ventures. This marks a shift from previous statements. 

Political Backlash

Conservatives and Republicans on the House Oversight Committee pushed back on social media, claiming Hunter would face consequences for his “stunt.” The overall Republican response to Hunter’s press conference has been critical.
