Members shouted over one another to speak on Wednesday as the House Oversight Committee descended into anarchy.
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) then accused Hunter Biden of “no balls” after he disrupted the hearing.
Late last year, the committee convened to deliberate and cast a ballot on a resolution that would have found Hunter Biden guilty of contempt of Congress for failing to comply with a subpoena.
Although the proceedings commenced with grandiose remarks, ranking Member Jamie Raskin (D-Maryland) ultimately delivered his opening statement.
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) interrupted abruptly to state, “I have an inquiry.”
Greene, Raskin and Comer then engaged in a back and forth over the proper interpretation of the rules after which Mace was then granted the opportunity to speak.
“Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Uh, Chairman Comer. Um, first of all, my first question is, who bribed Hunter Biden to be here today? That’s my first question. Um. Second question. You are the epitome of white privilege. Coming into the oversight committee, spitting in our face, ignoring a congressional subpoena to be deposed. What are you afraid of? You have no balls to come up here,” Mace said.

A Democrat member then attempted to interject and in the midst of the renewed back and forth Mace shouted that “I think that, uh, that Hunter Biden should be arrested right here, right now and go straight to jail. Our nation is founded on the rule of law.”
