( – Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) criticized House Democrats for their public remarks about the Hunter Biden deposition on Wednesday, accusing them of violating House rules by disclosing details of Biden’s closed-door testimony to lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

Several Democrats had expressed their disdain for the investigation into Hunter Biden and the impeachment inquiry against his father, President Biden, labeling it a politically motivated and futile endeavor. Notably, some disclosed aspects of what Hunter Biden shared during his deposition.

Roy highlighted this behavior in an interview with Fox News, stating, “My colleagues are actually breaking House rules. We’re not talking about just any rules established for this particular deposition but rules for the United States House of Representatives. They’re doing this by sharing specifics and discussing certain questions asked during the deposition.”

Democrats such as Reps. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) and Maxwell Frost (D-FL) criticized the investigation’s emphasis on trivial matters, like the use of a speakerphone in Hunter Biden’s business meetings, which they found excessively scrutinized during the questioning.

Raskin humorously commented to reporters, “There seems to be an obsessive focus on the use of speakerphones. I wasn’t aware that was considered the technology of the devil, but it appears to be so.”

Roy dismissed these Democratic critiques as mere diversions, expressing dissatisfaction with the deposition’s failure to address the central allegations of corruption by the GOP. He argued that the deposition did not provide satisfactory explanations for Joe Biden’s alleged presence during Hunter Biden’s business engagements, underscoring what he sees as the evident concerns presented by the facts.
