Why doesn't Comer want Hunter to testify publicly?

Seems Hunter Biden is willing to testify in front of Congress, but is saying he will only do it in a public setting.  James Comer is blasting it for some reason, and getting reamed on the interwebs for it.  Anyone in here have a clue what strategy Comer may be going for?  What is the problem with Hunter testifying in a public hearing verses a closed door one?  Makes no sense to me, and looks like Republicans shooting themselves in the foot yet again.

My understanding is that Hunter's slime ball leftist lawyer Abbe Lowell wants to make it a public hearing to create a dog and pony show. And paint that derelict as a victim of his various addictions.

If Comer does this properly, hopefully a private inquisition will be mostly available publicly via transcripts.

That's the scuttlebutt I've gathered, but I'm certainly not a lawyer.

Yeah.  It's Lowell. 

The buzz I'm picking-up is that he has a strategy that heavily relies on situations involving HB's painting-sales.
