Years ago, the scandal-ridden son of President Biden—Hunter Biden—revealed he was becoming an artist. Despite having no artistic training, the man started painting and selling his works for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Critics warned that this could create a conflict of interest for the president. The White House assured the country it would not, despite Biden’s long, troubling history with his son.
It seems Hunter’s art career was shorter than anyone expected. But he still managed to sell several paintings. Now the man who sold his art testified before Congress. And we are learning who actually bought Hunter’s art.
From The Post Millennial:
Hunter Biden’s art dealer was questioned by House Republicans behind closed doors on Tuesday, during which it was revealed that buyers of the paintings include Democratic donors.
An investigation into Hunter Biden’s art deals revealed that buyers of the paintings included Democratic donors Kevin Morris and Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali.
Two Democrat donors were among the people who bought Hunter Biden’s paintings. Kevin Morris appears to also be a colleague of Hunter’s. He acquired Hunter’s stake in the Chinese investment first Bohai Harvest RST—assuming $250,000 in debt.
Morris bought most of Hunter’s artwork and is also helping with his legal problems. Morris has paid upwards of $875,000 for the paintings.
Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali paid $42,000 in February 2021 and then $52,000 in December of the following year for artwork made by Hunter. During that time, she was appointed Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad.
Critics of the Biden family will dissect this news, asking why known Democrat donors would shell out such large sums for these paintings. Hunter Biden is not a recognized artist; he has no credibility in the art community and therefore, should not be fetching such massive sums for his art.
His only “claim to fame” is being the son of the president. Many Americans will suspect these art sales were covers for liberal donors to gain influence over the president through Hunter Biden. Such arrangements, Republicans claim, have been done before through Hunter’s businesses.
- Two of the buyers of Hunter Biden’s paintings were Democratic donors.
- One spent $94,000 on paintings, the other spent $875,000.
- Critics have suggested Hunter used his art to sell influence to his father.
