Between Hunter Biden’s new-found art career, his overseas business dealings with father Joe, the lump sums he’s received from foreign dignitaries, and a host of other corrupt attempts to gain a profit, the GOP is finally doing something about it.
The House Oversight Committee Republicans recently released a report raising serious concerns over the corruption circling the White House since Joe Biden’s ascent to the presidency.
In the report, 12 Republican lawmakers on the House Committee of Oversight and Reform requested information and data pertaining to the corruptible efforts from the Biden family to earn a profit using their proximity and power from the White House.
The Republican lawmakers wrote:
Reports regarding President Biden’s family members attempting to profit from their proximity to the White House have been disturbing and recurring. Unfortunately, these reports of President Biden using his former official positions of public trust to swell the coffers of his family members are widespread, and any hope the pattern of family self-dealing would finally stop when he assumed the presidency has been dashed.

GOP Rep. James Comer, ranking member on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, took to Twitter to condemn the Biden’s:
The Biden family is treating the White House as their own personal cash cow.
Who would pay 500K for Hunter’s art if his last name wasn’t Biden?https://t.co/4PEvXG9l2U

The Republicans’ statement included a request for the following communications and documents:
- Communications and documents surrounding two international trips from the Obama-Biden Administration in which Biden family members and associates seemingly took advantage of a connection to the Oval Office;
- A list of all past and ongoing foreign business interests and relations for Biden family members;
- All documents and communications regarding Hunter Biden’s artwork;
- All Biden family members’ appearance in advertisements, public speaking, or in any nature to solicit business/investments/awareness; and
- All policies and procedures the White House has to prevent the Biden family from profiting off the presidency.
The Georges Bergès Gallery, which brokers the sales of Hunter Biden’s “artworks,” revealed that the price per painting ranges from $75,000 to $500,000.
The gallery struck a deal with White House ethics lawyers permitting Hunter to sell his work despite the likelihood of corruption under the condition the buyers remain anonymous.
Republicans considered if the anonymity of buyers of Hunter Biden’s paintings allows for “money laundering, “fraud,” “other illicit activities,” or other forms of monetizing Joe Biden’s political influence.
