On the eve of high-profile testimony to a House committee, Hunter Biden’s longtime business partner Devon Archer is arguing with the Justice Department about when he should report to prison for unrelated charges.

A jury in 2018 convicted Archer of two felonies for his role in a conspiracy to defraud a Native American tribe, but his 2022 sentence it has been repeatedly postponed amid a long series of appeals.

On Saturday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York wrote to trial Judge Ronnie Abrams and asked him to schedule a date for Archer to appear in prison, after the Court of Appeals · lations of the Second Circuit ended an order days before he stayed his only … sentence of one year.

The court is not expected to make a decision before Archer meets behind closed doors with the House Oversight Committee, meaning that even if the court ultimately sides with the request, Archer would not have to report to the prison before the meeting. And his lawyer said in a statement that he will go ahead with his scheduled appearance on Monday.

A spokesman for the US Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York declined to comment on the filing or timing of the letter. But according to the one-page letter, filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Negar Tekeei, prosecutors had asked Archer’s attorney to recommend a arraignment date in light of the Second Circuit’s ruling, but they be rejected

Of course, Biden’s DOJ denies any significance in the remarkable timing of its renewed interest in arresting Hunter’s partner, Archer:

Matthew Schwartz, Archer’s attorney, also dismissed the idea that there was any connection between Archer’s tiff with the Justice Department and his possible impending prison time.

“We are aware of speculation that the Justice Department’s weekend request that Mr. Archer be jailed is an attempt by the Biden administration to intimidate him ahead of his meeting with the House Oversight Committee,” Schwartz said in a statement. “To be clear, Mr. Archer does not agree with this speculation. In any case, Mr. Archer will do what he has planned to do all along, which is to appear on Monday and answer honestly the questions put to him do the researchers of the Congress”.

But the latest twist in the long-running conflict creates a strange backdrop to Archer’s planned appearance, which Republicans have been touting as a significant moment in their investigation into Biden’s dealings. Archer’s appearance was previously scheduled and canceled, prompting Monday’s rescheduling.
