WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden has declined an invitation to attend an open hearing before a Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives committee conducting an impeachment probe of his father, Axios reported on Wednesday, citing a lawyer’s statement.

“Your latest step — this March 6 invitation — is not a serious oversight proceeding,” attorney Abbe Lowell said. “It is your attempt to resuscitate your conference’s moribund inquiry with a made-for-right-wing-media, circus act.”
