Hunter Biden could be held in contempt of Congress if he does not comply with a lawfully issued subpoena to appear before the House impeachment inquiry for a deposition behind closed doors and in public, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) and Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) threatened Wednesday.

If prosecuted and convicted for contempt of Congress, the punishment is up to a $100,000 fine and imprisonment.
The committee scheduled Hunter’s closed-door deposition on December 13.
So far, Hunter only agreed to appear in a public setting.
“He’s been subpoenaed. We expect him to show up. They don’t get to make the rules,” Comer told Politico. “I would expect Congress to hold the president’s son in contempt,” he added when asked what the next step would be if Hunter Biden does not meet with investigators.
