Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, enters a federal building before being deposed for an impeachment inquiry against his father.

House Democrats in Hunter Biden’s congressional testimony called the ongoing impeachment inquiry a “disgrace” to Republicans, adding that their search for the president’s son is nothing more than a “futile search.” “.

Hunter Biden appeared Wednesday morning to a media fanfare for his long-awaited deposition in the ongoing impeachment inquiry into his father, as Republicans continue to investigate Joe Biden.

The GOP-led committee has claimed that President Biden improperly used his influence to help his son Hunter’s business, earning the younger Biden millions of dollars through shady dealings over the years.

They are also investigating whether the president was ever paid for his influence.

Democrats, however, have repeatedly called the impeachment inquiry a sham and a waste of time.

“It’s so shameful that Republicans are continuing this futile pursuit of President Biden,” progressive Rep. Greg Casar, D-Texas, said Wednesday morning before testifying.

“I mean, they’re acting like Hunter Biden is running for president.”

Some Democrats who participated in the statement similarly told reporters that the meeting was lackluster.

“If you ever wonder why 50 percent of this country doesn’t vote, you don’t have to look any further than the hour we just spent there in this statement,” Rep. Maxwell Frost, D-Fla., said after leaving . the closed-door meeting after an hour.

The first hour of the statement “was the nail in the coffin of what is a complete, false, sham impeachment investigation,” Rep. Daniel Goldman said after leaving.

Republicans are “so desperate to humiliate the president that they began asking him some personal details about a divorce that occurred almost 10 years ago.” That’s as far as it goes,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., told reporters.

One of the top Democrats who opposed the investigation, Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., said the hearing was a “tremendous waste” of time and resources.

This has been a “comedy of errors from the beginning,” he said.

He said he “understands” why Hunted wanted to testify publicly after getting through the first three hours of the deposition.

Raskin also said there was a “paranoid suspicion” about the Republicans’ focus on the more than 20 Hunters business phone calls that Joe sat through.

Meanwhile, Republicans said the president’s son was not being forthright.

Hunter Biden was “defiant and dishonest” in his statement, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., said after leaving the room.

Democrats also condemned Republicans’ use of information from former FBI informant Alexander Smirnov in the investigation, as he was recently accused of having ties to Russian intelligence agencies.

Smirnov ‘lied’ about an alleged Biden family ‘bribery scheme’ with Ukrainians and had ‘high-level contacts with Russian intelligence agents,’ according to prosecutors.

The falsified bribery scheme involving a $10 million payment to Joe and Hunter from a top Ukrainian oil executive was at the center of the Republican’s impeachment campaign until a few days ago.

Last week, special counsel David Weiss accused Smirnov of lying about President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden accepting bribes from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

If convicted, Smirnov faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison.

“Their primary source was collaboration with Russian intelligence forces,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told reporters Wednesday.

“The fact that the Republicans received that information, that the entire country received that information, and that they are still continuing their impeachment proceedings and investigations, should be a four-alarm signal to this entire country.”

The progressive compared the impeachment investigation to a “fishing expedition on the high seas.”
