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.

“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
