Ex White House Ethics Official Calls Out Hunter Biden For $500k In Art Sales


This just in, Ex-White House ethics official calls out Biden administration for releasing report, highlighting money laundering in the art industry – all while Hunter Biden’s paintings sell for up to $500K to mystery buyers.

The Daily Mail has more on the story:

A former top White House ethics official is calling out the Biden White House for a new report pointing to the potential for corruption in the murky art industry – at a time when the president’s son Hunter is exhibited his expensive artwork at glitzy gallery shows.

Walter Shaub, who served as head of the Office of Government Ethics during the Obama Administration, pointed out the issue in a tweet Monday.

‘The White House just issued a report flagging that money laundering is a problem in the… wait for it… art sale industry,’ he wrote. Then he quoted the report saying: “The markets for art and antiquities—and the market participants who facilitate transactions—are especially vulnerable to a range of financial crimes.”

Built-in opacity, lack of stable and predictable pricing, and inherent cross-border transportability of goods sold, make the market optimal for illicit value transfer, sanctions evasion, and corruption,’ it said.

Shaub has already blasted the potential for the appearance of conflicts for the system set up by the White House for dealing with Hunter’s artwork. Under the arrangement, the gallery owner exhibiting Hunter’s work, George Bergès, provides information to White House lawyers before a sale for potential conflicts, without revealing to the public who bought the art.

It is meant to shield the identity of buyers to avoid any potential efforts to influence the administration – although word could still get around who is plunking down tens of thousands of dollars for the president’s son’s work.

See the reaction here:

As the White House claims they have an ethics plan in place to insure the buyers will remain anonymous, Joe Biden has been spotted at several Hunter’s art showings.

And yet, the White House refuses to be transparent about it.

Seems like the White House is really taking that corruption report seriously.
