    House Republicans said on Sunday they are willing to accommodate Hunter Biden by agreeing to subpoena him again for the impeachment inquiry into his father, President Joe Biden, after he refused to comply with the last round.

    Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) wrote to Hunter Biden's attorney, Abbe Lowell, welcoming the first son's "newfound willingness" to testify before Congress in a deposition under subpoena.

    "Although the Committee's subpoenas are lawful and remain legally enforceable, as an accommodation to Mr. Biden and at your request, we are prepared to issue subpoenas compelling Mr. Biden's appearance at a deposition on a new date in the coming weeks," they wrote.

    Lowell wrote a letter to the chairmen on Friday after the oversight and judiciary panels approved resolutions to hold his client in contempt of Congress for defying subpoenas issued in November.

    The lawyer said Hunter Biden would appear for a deposition or hearing in compliance with a "proper subpoena" since the House voted to formally authorize the impeachment inquiry last month.

    Hunter Biden showed up on Capitol Hill twice, once on the day of his scheduled deposition and a second time as lawmakers considered the contempt resolutions, demanding he be allowed to appear in an open setting such as a public hearing to answer "legitimate" questions while depriving members the opportunity to distort his testimony.

    House Republicans indicated they were willing to have Hunter Biden testify in a public hearing - but only after a deposition - and have insisted throughout the standoff that their subpoenas were valid.

    "To be clear, the issuance of these subpoenas does not in any way suggest or imply that the Committees believe the assertions in your January 12 letter to have any merit," Comer and Jordan wrote in the Sunday letter. "Our willingness to issue these subpoenas is rooted entirely in our interest in obtaining Mr. Biden's testimony as expeditiously as possible."

    Their response came as the House was expected to move forward with a floor vote this week. The top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), had encouraged the GOP majority to call off the plan following Lowell's letter.

    "Hunter Biden is giving Republicans exactly what they have been demanding this week," Raskin said on Friday, adding that the first son "has offered to appear for a 'hearing or deposition.' It is time for Chairs Comer and Jordan to call off this truly absurd and wasteful contempt proceeding and finally take yes for an answer, which Chair Jordan already said he would 'certainly' do."

    In their letter on Sunday, Comer and Jordan rejected a suggestion by Lowell in a footnote of there being a "hybrid process" that would entail a public hearing or deposition with similar rules that govern private depositions.

    "While we welcome Mr. Biden's public testimony at the appropriate time, he must appear for a deposition that conforms to the House Rules and the rules and practices of the Committees, just like every other witness before the Committees," they wrote.

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Now that the public is allowed to know the truth regarding the Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal, after more that 2 1/2 years of deception by the corrupt Corporate Media Kabal, propropagandidats all, and the discredited Deep State, we have NOW learned that the infamous laptop is far less about the Biden Boy's fetish for pornography, narcotics and Russian whores, and far more about Hunter's pivotal role in the Biden Crime Syndicate's selling of deep access to our foreign adversaries, and to what extent it has compromised our national security: What is your opinion about this possible coordinated Treason?
  It is imperative that we know the truth of what may be the greatest scandal in our Republic's history, and all aforementioned parties prosecuted for their crimes against the People.
  Currently, our Two Tiered Justice System is constructed to protect all Democratic Socialists, their corrupt "Journalist" spokes-sheople, and their Deep State enablers ... so why bother.
  It is Donald Trump's fault.
  How can we be assured that the "Laptop" is real? Would NOT our standard journalists have investigated this issue thoroughly nearly 3 years ago if it was real?

After nearly 8 months of the United States House of Representatives' Oversight Committee hearings, House Speaker Mike Johnson is pursuing an Impeachment Inquiry into the strong allegations of Bribery, Influence Peddling, Money laundering and possible Treason regarding the Biden Family Shell Corporations' business dealings with foreign nations that are adversarial to our survival: Is it prudent and wise for the Republican controlled U.S. House to investigate this Democratic Socialist President?
  No, Democratics should never be investigated because they are so superior to their Republican counterparts, and care so much more.
  Yes, in a Constitutional Republic, bound by the Rule of Law, no one is above the law, and that law must be applied evenly.
  Not sure ... Now, what got all this started?
