Hunter Biden and his art.
In January, House Oversight Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-KY) announced an investigation into Hunter Biden’s art-selling scheme.
Rep. Comer sent a letter to Hunter Biden’s art dealer, Georges Burgess, asking for information on anonymous buyers of Hunter Biden’s junk art.
“The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating the foreign and domestic influence schemes of President Joe Biden and his family,” Chairman Comer wrote. “For more than a decade, the Biden family has benefited from Joe Biden’s position as a public official. Your arrangement with Hunter Biden raises serious ethics concerns and calls into question whether the Biden family is once again selling access and influence. Despite being a fledgling artist, Hunter Biden made a lot of money selling his artwork, the identity of the buyers remains unknown, and you seem to be the sole record keeper of these lucrative transactions.”

On Thursday, Hunter Biden’s art dealer Georges Burgess told the committee that he would not provide the House Oversight Committee with disclosures requested of Hunter Biden’s art sales to anonymous buyers.
Looks like it’s time to call the DOJ for some arrests
Hunter Biden’s art dealer, Georges Burgess, on Thursday declined a House Oversight Committee request to disclose his art sales to anonymous buyers.
Hunter, an attorney and former lobbyist who is under investigation for tax fraud, reportedly sold about 12 paintings to anonymous buyers during his father’s tenure as president of the United States. The price tag of the artworks is reported to be $500,000 each.
In January, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) requested Burgess to testify before Congress and release relevant information about the industry sale. Comer told Breitbart News in 2022 that he was 95 percent certain the buyers of Hunter’s art were Chinese buyers, potentially involving President Biden.
On Thursday, Burgess, who has a history of doing business in China, told Comer through his newly appointed attorney that he would not provide information on Hunter’s art sales because the sales are intended to be confidential — an issue that raised concerns about Comer.
