First son Hunter Biden's testimony Wednesday before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees will reportedly not be video taped – like others were in the Republican-led President Biden impeachment inquiry. 

The change of protocol is being reported by CNN based on the digital and cable news network said was sources familiar with the matter.

Hunter is one of several witnesses to appear before the panels, which are probing whether President Biden violated ethics by using his influence as vice president to enrich family members and himself in Hunter and brother Jim Biden's business dealing.
