In perhaps one of the more unsurprising developments of the week, Georges Bergès, Hunter Biden’s so-called “art dealer” (more like back channeler), has brazenly blown off the House Oversight Committee with regards to serious national security matters.
Specifically, Hunter, who refashioned himself as an “artist” as his father became president, has been selling varied paintings for upwards of $500,000 each, despite having zero formal experience as an artist.
Frankly, it’s unclear if Hunter even does the art himself, as his primary skills appear to be selling out the nation while arranging for the services of human trafficked call girls from Ukraine and Russia, namely doing and other activities with him in high-end hotels.
In the meantime, he funds these lavish, if highly unclean, activities via various foreign business dealings, 100 percent of which he only obtained due to the influence of his father … who is also bought and paid for as “the Big Guy.”
And part of those dealings includes selling his “art” to anonymous clients, nearly 100 percent of which are suspected to be Chinese.
Unsurprisingly, James Comer, who serves as House Oversight Committee Chairman, has demanded answers regarding who exactly is spending up to half a million dollars for art by a non-artist, though the same non-artist just happens to be the president’s son.
Consequently, Comer issued a notice to Bergès requesting “any information regarding who is buying Mr. Biden’s art,” adding that a subpoena would possibly follow if the request was blown off.
“This information will inform our legislation on matters that are within the jurisdiction of this Committee,” Comer intoned ominously.
The information will also inform the nation about the degree to which Biden is blatantly compromised by China, especially as he drags his heels on banning TikTok while simultaneously allowing a surveillance balloon to traverse the entirety of the United States before shooting it down.
However, as reported by Breitbart, Hunter Biden’s art dealer has rather unsurprisingly blown off the request, likely because he, like most lifelong politicians, considers himself above the law.
Especially with Biden at the helm.
One can only hope that subpoenas are granted in response to Hunter’s refusal to cooperate.
Indeed, Hunter’s “art sales” are a tad on the nose, considering the dire warnings issued by a Senate subcommittee report with regards to these types of transactions.
“The art industry is considered the largest, legal unregulated industry in the United States. Unlike financial institutions, the art industry is not subject to Bank Secrecy Act’s (‘BSA’) requirements, which mandate detailed procedures to prevent money laundering and to verify a customer’s identity. While the BSA does not apply to art transactions by art dealers and auction houses, sanctions do. No U.S. person or entity is allowed to do business with a sanctioned individual or entity,” the report stated.
As for the White House’s remarks on Hunter Biden’s “art,” with sales taking off not-so-coincidentally after Biden became president?
Former Press Secretary Jen Psaki, well known for her condescending attitude and derision towards conservatives, delivered a typically tone-deaf response.
“The president remains proud of his son,” she sniffed.
Especially when that “son” generates multiple (ill-begotten) millions for “the Big Guy,” at the grave expense of long-term national security.
