Hunter Biden's Suspect Art Sales to be Investigated

In Brief: 

First Son Hunter Biden has become a name synonymous with lies, deceit, and coverups. Representative James Comer (R-KY) is now demanding an answer. 

The Background: 

The House Oversight Committee is demanding an explanation for the sudden expertise and price commanded by first son Hunter Biden in the art world. First, they are demanding Hunter’s ​​art dealer hand over sales information and book an interview with congressional investigators about possible influence-peddling.

In the letter, Rep. James Comer states: 

“For over a decade, the Biden family has profited from Joe Biden’s positions as a public official. Your arrangement with Hunter Biden raises serious ethics concerns and calls into question whether the Biden family is again selling access and influence. Despite being a novice artist, Hunter Biden received exorbitant amounts of money selling his artwork, the buyers’ identities remain unknown, and you appear to be the sole record keeper of these lucrative transactions,”

These demands come a month after Georges Berges, owner of the SoHo gallery showcasing said artwork, ignored requests for documentation on buyers and methods for determining price.

The committee has given Berges until February 8th to respond. Should he refuse to comply with the request, the Republican majority on the committee can vote to compel the evidence and testimony with a subpoena, and continued stonewalling would open Berges to potential criminal charges, reports the New York Post.

Notable Quotes: 

Hunter Biden should cancel this art sale because he knows the prices are based on his dad’s job. Shame on POTUS if he doesn’t ask Hunter to stop.” – Walter Shaub, director of the US Office of Government Ethics under President Barack Obama
