Hunter’s Art Dealer Impedes GOP Probe into Art Sales Investigation

'Why would anyone pay Hunter Biden top dollar for artwork that is arguably worthless? He’s no Pablo Picasso...'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Hunter Biden’s art dealer, Georges Bergés, refused to comply with a House Oversight Committee investigation into the younger Biden’s business dealings and provide a list of the anonymous buyers of 12 of his paintings.

The nation’s first son is under investigation for tax fraud by the Committee. According to Breitbart, Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., called Bergés to testify before Congress about the art dealings, which were all transactions of over $500,000 apiece.

Comer voiced suspicions about many of the buyers being Chinese businessmen, possibly implicating President Joe Biden in his son’s shady business dealings.

Beregés, who has known ties to Chinese businessmen, refused to share information about the younger Biden’s buyers because they were secret sales.

“In light of these considerations, providing the documents and information requested in your letter seemingly would defeat the efforts of Mr. Biden and the White House to avoid the ‘serious ethical concerns’ that you raise,” Bergés’ lawyer, William Pittard, told Comer. “Mr. Berges hopes that you and Mr. Biden can resolve that tension.”

Pittard specializes in white collar and congressional investigations.

Comer questioned the shady circumstances behind the deal after the initial sale.

“Why would anyone pay Hunter Biden top dollar for artwork that is arguably worthless? He’s no Pablo Picasso,” Comer stated. “Foreign adversaries, including China, have used transactions involving sham art sales to launder money & evade sanctions.”

Comer, who is leading the investigation into Biden’s case, is also looking into possible wire fraud and money laundering.

Hunter’s bank records reveal at least 150 irregular wire transfers were flagged by American banks, many of them involving Biden family business in China.

By not revealing the people who purchased Hunter’s art, Bergés may be attempting to avoid implicating the president or himself in Hunter’s suspicious dealings.

Comer also suggested that he has information suggesting that President Biden knew about his son’s dubious business relations, despite saying otherwise on the campaign trail.

“We know that Joe Biden said during the presidential campaign that he had no knowledge of his son’s business interests. He wasn’t involved. He didn’t benefit from them. We have evidence that would suggest otherwise. And this is very concerning,” Comer told ABC News on Sunday.
