Hunter Biden’s art dealer testified that the president’s son was aware of his lawyer’s purchases of his art, contradicting the White House’s ethics plan to conceal buyers’ identities.

The lawyer, described as Hunter’s “sugar brother,” made a significant purchase of $875,000 worth of artwork, leading to accusations of potential conflicts of interest.

The testimony has sparked controversy, with Republican lawmakers alleging deception by the White House and concerns about the art sales being a mechanism for gaining access to the government. (Trending: Anthony Fauci Questioned About Evidence Behind COVID Restrictions)

Biden administration officials “helped craft an agreement under which purchases of Hunter Biden’s artwork — which could be listed at prices as high as $500,000 — will be kept confidential from even the artist himself, in an attempt to avoid ethical issues that could arise as a presidential family member tries to sell a product with a highly subjective value,” reported the Washington Post in 2021.

Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali, who reportedly spent $42,000 On Hunter’s art, said, “any insinuation that her purchase of art was unusual or somehow improper” was untrue.

Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, wrote in a statement, “The Biden White House appears to have deceived the American people about facilitating an ethics agreement governing the sale of Hunter Biden’s art.”

“The vast majority of Hunter Biden’s art has been purchased by Democrat donors, one of whom was appointed by President Biden to a prestigious commission after she purchased Hunter Biden’s art for tens of thousands of dollars shortly after Joe Biden’s inauguration. The White House has a lot of explaining to do about misleading the American people,” he continued.

Additionally, the White House’s arrangement faced criticism from a former Obama administration ethics chief, who called it a “perfect mechanism for funneling bribes.”
