    I can think of lots of reasons why a defendant might not want a public hearing, but it doesn't make sense for the prosecution to want it held behind closed doors. Can anyone help me...what reasons could the prosecution (or Congress) want it to be private?

    They don't want transparency. That's the issue.

    They used to say only people who have something to hide plead the 5th.

    Today its people who demand a public hearing have something to hide..

    You cannot make this stuff up.

    Of course. That's what it looks like, certainly. I'm just wondering if there are any reasons - beyond that - for Comer to not want transparency.

    When it turns out everything was completely legal, you will still accuse them of being criminals.

    The first hearings, that were open, didn’t go well for Comer. The evidence was exculpatory. Of course he doesn’t want the truth to come out.

    Biden and the White House have fought for months to not turn over info requested by various committees. Were you concerned about transparency then?

    When Hunter is asked who the big guy is, what name do you think he'll spit out?

    Well, this must be a disappointment to some conservative posters who think Hunter will do the same thing that Steve Bannon did.

    Probably because Biden and this WH haven't been connected to this particular Witch Hunt-er

    Easy solution for Hunter, should he want to go that way..... Show up to the GOP deposition, take the 5th on every question (MAGA is now OK with that), then schedule his public hearing and answer the questions then....

    They have been very forthcoming with subpoenas.

    A) It’s a public way of showing an attempt to comply with a Congressional subpoena.

    B) Lowell is trolling Comer on the illegitimacy of his impeachment inquiry. The reason he listed House Republican’s public comments stating they lacked the evidence to open an inquiry in the letter. The votes don’t exist to legitimize the inquiry in the House.

    It’s a cover the bases for my client and a put up or shut up communication. It’s highly unlikely Hunter Biden will ever testify on any other terms than what Lowell laid out.

    All due to his own decision making.

    That tends to be the case with the vast majority of people.

    People overwhelmingly deserve to be exactly where they are, as it usually is their own choices that got them their. With some exception.

    LOL! Nice excuse. In reality, Comer is getting cold feet. If the interview is public, they can't spin it in their favor.

    Wouldn’t you like to hear it yourself opposed to being told what he said?

    Hunter didn’t break any laws. He’s allowed to do everything he did.
    But the car accident that hospitalized him, and killed his mom and sister wasn’t his fault

    Its unclear if he broke laws or not related to finance. The drugs and prostituion is definitely against the law. Plus just the damage done to his image and health as related to such things, the neglection of family. All his fault.

    If you wish to come to that conclusion and incorrectly believe there in an equivalency there lol then by all means.
