Plenty of critics have commented on Hunter Biden’s sudden entry into the art world. The president’s son, after a business career, decided to start painting—and selling those paintings for a fortune.
Some claimed that this could lead to people trying to buy influence with the Biden administration.
The White House claimed that was impossible. But now, one of those art dealers blew the lid off of something Joe Biden did.
From Just the News:
The art dealer who sold Hunter Biden’s paintings told Congress that President Joe Biden both called and met him at the White House as he was pitching Hunter’s artwork and that the first son also made an unusual request to be informed about who bought his pieces, according to testimony that directly undercuts the White House narrative on the sales.
George Berges, who sold Hunter’s paintings from 2020 to 2023, told Congress that Hunter likely knew 70% of those who bought them. Berges also said that President Biden himself contacted and met with him.
This shatters claims from the White House that the names of the buyers would be kept secret. Experts, including former Obama ethics officials, said Hunter’s art career would create a serious problem for the White House.
Many said it stunk of the same kind of arrangements Hunter made while in the business world. Republicans accused Hunter of using his business connections to sell influence with his father. Congressional investigators even claim that Biden conducted a bribery ring with his son.
It is possible Hunter’s art career, which lasted a short time, was another attempt at funneling cash into Biden’s pockets. The fact that Hunter and his father knew the names of most of his buyers only seems to confirm those fears.
- Hunter’s art dealer claimed Joe Biden contacted and met with him.
- George Berges also said Hunter likely knew 70% of those who bought his paintings.
- This contradicts the White House’s claims that the buyers would remain a secret.
