As I previously reported, there are a lot of questions being raised about Hunter Biden’s latest venture – that of selling his “art.”

Why? Because it was announced that they would not be revealing who was buying the art and it allegedly would involve vast sums of money being paid to Hunter through an art dealer.

His ‘artwork’ was being priced between $75,000 and $500,000 dollars apiece, depending on the size and nature, according to Fox Business. As I said, do they think we were born yesterday and we really think this guy’s art is worth that? His art is worth more than the art of even famous artists to start with? According to Fox Business, a piece by Andy Warhol sold for $725,000 at a New York auction, by comparison. So we’re really supposed to believe that Hunter’s art is so inspired?

It’s obviously very concerning that Joe Biden’s son, with the history he and Joe already have, would be getting a lot of anonymous cash from who knows where.

But now the White House is announcing a plan to deal with the question. The plan is setting off so many alarm bells that even Obama ethics chief Walter Shaub is calling it out.

According to the Washington Post, White House officials helped draft a document claiming the names of the purchasers will be kept confidential including from Hunter Biden, that the art dealer would know but Hunter would not be told the names.

Shaub busted the plan.

From Fox News:

“So instead of disclosing who is paying outrageous sums for Hunter Biden’s artwork so that we could monitor whether the purchasers are gaining access to government, the WH tried to make sure we will never know who they are,” Shaub wrote while linking to the Post’s report. “That’s very disappointing.”

“The idea’s that even Hunter won’t know, but the WH has outsourced government ethics to a private art dealer,” Shaub continued. “We’re supposed to trust a merchant in an industry that’s fertile ground for money laundering, as well as unknown buyers who could tell Hunter or WH
