The House Oversight and Reform Committee is in the beginning stages of opening an investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, for “possible undue White House influence.”
The investigation was started based on suspicions that Hunter Biden is selling art as a way to disguise payments for access to the White House.
Hunter Biden’s amateur art is being sold for outrageous sums of money, and the White House has been tight-lipped about who has been paying Hunter Biden for his remarkably unimpressive work.
Representative James Comer (R-KY) has sent an official request for documents covering communications between Hunter Biden, his clients, and the White House.
In the letter to Biden’s gallerist, Representative Comer wrote that “The New York Times recently profiled your gallery regarding its sale of paintings by Hunter Biden, who overnight has become an artist and member of the avant-garde. As you are undoubtedly aware, the president’s son selling artwork has generated numerous questions surrounding the ethics and propriety of such actions.”
