What was it The Washington Post said in July 2021?

“White House officials have 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.”

The day after WaPo wrote that in an article, then-press secretary Jen Psaki didn’t dispute the reports.

“Did the White House play any role in crafting the sales agreement with the New York gallery to protect the purchasers or the ultimate purchasers’ identity?” one reporter asked Psaki.

Psaki answered:  “a system has been established that allows for Hunter Biden to work in his profession within reasonable safeguards… All interactions regarding the selling of art and the setting of prices will be handled by a professional gallerist, adhering to the highest industry 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.”

Now we know that the White House ethics plan was a load of bull.

From The New York Post:

The art dealer [Georges Bergès] testified that Hunter, 53, knew who bought about 70% of his art — including Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali, who obtained works by the first son both before and after scoring a prestigious presidential appointment.

Bergès disclosed that he personally interacted with Joe Biden on multiple occasions, including at a closed-to-the-press White House wedding for Hunter’s daughter Naomi in 2022.

House Oversight Chair James Comer issued a statement on the bombshell.

“The Biden White House appears to have deceived the American people about facilitating an ethics agreement governing the sale of Hunter Biden’s art,” Comer said in a statement. “Hunter Biden’s gallerist never had any communication with the White House about such an agreement to make sure there was any sort of ethics compliance at all, and he provided information to the committee revealing how Hunter Biden’s amateur art career is an ethics nightmare.”

“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,” Comer added. “The White House has a lot of explaining to do about misleading the American people.”

Problems —and lies —are piling up for the Bidens.
