Freedom Caucus member Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) has called for a select committee investigation into Hunter Biden’s art sales, which he said were being used for “access to the Biden name.”
Brooks, who is running for Senate in 2022, noted that a White House report had even warned the art market was “ripe for financial corruption.”
Brooks suggested the investigation take place after Republicans regain majorities in Congress in the 2022 midterms, which is widely expected at this point but is not a guarantee.
He disparaged Hunter Biden’s art and noted that despite his apparent lack of talent, his art was selling for tens of thousands of dollars a piece.
“It’s quite apparent that people are not paying these outrageous prices for the ‘art.’ They are purchasing access to the Biden name,” he continued. “This is nothing new for the Biden family. It is clear that for full transparency, a full select committee investigation into Hunter Biden and all of his scandals, including his laptop, is needed once Republicans take back control of the House in 2022.”
