The true purpose of the pricey Hunter Biden artwork may finally be coming to light and quite frankly, its disturbing. According to an email discovered on the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell,” Hunter revealed that he might have sway over who gets onto the prestigious Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad.
It looks like the Biden family is using Hunter’s overpriced and underwhelming artwork as the price of entry for this commission.
The art gallery where Hunter’s ridiculously priced paintings are featured sold one of his pieces to a top Democrat donor who is a “friend” of the Biden family — and that individual was later named by Joe Biden to the commission!
Los Angeles real estate investor Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali, is a known Democrat donor who has given tens of thousands of dollars to the left and she was appointed to the commission only AFTER purchasing one of Hunter’s ‘art’ pieces.
The Biden’s auctioned off a spot on this commission through Hunter’s art – putting cash in their pockets in exchange for a seat on the influential government group.
And the circumstances surrounding other sales of the artwork are equally as bizarre. Despite not being linked directly to any political appointments, they certainly still indicate that Hunter only received the money for the paintings because of who his father is.
Los Angeles attorney Kevin Morris is another owner of the Biden art and he was recently spotted smoking a bong during a visit with the president’s son.
Another buyer, whose identity remains anonymous to the public, reportedly purchased 11 pieces of Hunter Biden’s paintings for $875,000, the single largest buyer out of the $1.38 million in sales generated by his art.
In the past, the White House has brushed off any suggestion that these art pieces and their hefty price tags could be causing a massive ethical concern.
Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said at the time that “all interactions regarding the selling of art and the setting of prices will be handled by a professional gallerist adhering to the highest professional standards.”
“And any offer out of the normal course would be rejected out of hand, and the gallerist will not share information about buyers or prospective buyers, including their identities with Hunter Biden or the administration, which provides quite a level of protection and transparency,” she claimed.
But as Walter Shaub, the former head of the Office of Government Ethics under President Barack Obama, pointed out, the Biden admin has effectively “outsourced government ethics to a private art dealer and they’re depending on unknown art purchasers to help keep the secret.”
“…it just is implausible that this art from an unknown artist would be selling at this price if it didn’t have the Biden name attached to it. The cachet that comes with buying this art is getting to say that you own art created by the President’s son. And so it really looks like the President’s son capitalizing on his father’s public service,” Shaub continued.
