Ways and Means slated to release Hunter Biden testimony

House Ways and Means Committee Republicans are preparing to release more confidential information related to the Hunter Biden case. The move is the latest step in the floundering impeachment case against President Joe Biden, which right now doesn’t appear likely to receive a full House vote.

Ways and Means will enter into executive session later this morning and vote on releasing material connected to Hunter Biden’s February closed-door testimony, according to a source close to the committee.

The panel, led by Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo.), has taken an active role in the House GOP probe into whether Biden improperly acted as vice president to benefit his family’s business deals. Most notably, the committee facilitated testimony in 2023 from two IRS whistleblowers who probed Hunter Biden’s alleged tax crimes. The younger Biden also faces a federal gun charge.

Today’s committee vote will center around documents that are protected under Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code. Because of Section 6103 constraints, it’s not entirely clear what they’ll contain.
