(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – The House GOP is putting the plans to hold Hunter Biden in contempt of Congress on pause, as new negotiations have started that would bring Hunter in for questioning.

The House Rules Committee which was set to look into the House Oversight Judiciary Committee’s contempt resolution on Tuesday afternoon is now not going to be considering these resolutions as they were withdrawn from the schedule. The reason for this is the new talks between Hunter Biden’s attorney who has agreed that his client would show up to provide his testimony if a new subpoena was issued.

Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Oversight Chair James Comer have responded to the request by stating that they were looking into possible days to schedule Hunter’s appearance. They pointed out that the negotiations were ongoing and that the House Rules Committee would not be considering the contempt resolution allowing the two sides enough time to reach a possible agreement.

Jordan’s spokesperson has previously indicated that there could be changes to the plan to have Hutner held in contempt based on how the new talks developed. A deposition has since been scheduled for February 28th, 2024. As the spokesperson noted on Monday, the chairman would be calling for leadership to hold off temporarily on the floor vote.

House Rules Committee Chair Tom Cole (R-OK) also pointed out that the possibility of Hunter being held in contempt was not completely off the table.
