Republican House members are already getting frustrated in their efforts to investigate any possible business ties with Joe and Hunter Biden.
The latest roadblock is being put up by Hunter’s art dealer.
According to the MSN report, the dealer is not willing to give Congress information regarding the buyers for Hunter’s water colors.
Art dealer Georges Berges has told his attorneys to tell Congress to go pound sand, according to the New York Post.
Berges is using the rule put in place by the White House to block the names of the buyers.
The White House claimed this was to prevent any conflict of interest, but the argument can easily be made that not knowing the names of the buyers is a bigger conflict of interest.
For instance, what if a Chinese diplomat paid Hunter $500,000 for one of his summer camp water colors in exchange for a spy balloon flying over the entire United States? I mean, would we put something like that past Biden?
Or how about all those people that attended the state dinner with the French President that had no right being there? Could they have possibly bought some influence?
Rep. James Comer (R-KY) is going to go to the wall on this one, already saying he has “concerns” over the resistance that he is getting on this front.
If Comer goes the route of a subpoena, Berges could face as much as a $1,000 fine and a year in prison. Let’s see how much he likes Hunter Biden then.
Berges’ attorney, William Pittard, penned a letter to Congress stating, “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 ethics concerns’ that you raise.”
He notes that they need to maintain the confidentiality of the buyers “because if the White House was not aware of those buyers, it would seem impossible for the administration to grant the buyers any favors based on the purchases.
“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 ethics concerns’ that you raise.
“Mr. Bergès hopes that you and Mr. Biden can resolve that tension.”
But again, let’s be serious if anyone thinks that Hunter and Joe Biden are not already aware of who shelled out all that money for those pathetic paintings.
I also don’t’ see why the list could not be given behind closed doors to Congress and never revealed publicly.
After all, we do not need to know who purchased the art from Hunter, but congressional oversight sure as hell does.
If they were to be given that protection, then why was the House Oversight given all of Trump’s business records?
