Former Obama Official Rips Hunter Biden Art Selling Exhibition – ‘Profiting Off The Presidency’

Former Obama Ethics Chief Walter Shaub spoke out on Friday morning to respond to Hunter Biden’s arranged art exhibition with potential “anonymous” art investors. Reports have come in stating that the son of President Joe Biden will be selling his art anywhere from $75,000-$500,000.

This did not sit well with Shaub, however. While appearing on CNN, the former Obama official said that the expose “sure looks like profiting off the presidency.”

Shaub Sounds Off

“They’ve put an art dealer in charge of keeping a secret,” Shaub said. “And really, what he’s doing is keeping a secret from the public because eventually, Hunter Biden or people in the White House will learn who it’s going to be.”

“In fact, Hunter Biden, we now know, is going to be at two art showings where he will meet the universe of bidders on his art,” he said. “So, they left that detail out when they said he had no way of knowing who was buying his art.”

“Ideally, Hunter Biden wouldn’t be doing this because it sure looks like profiting off the presidency,” he added. “But if they couldn’t talk him out of doing it, there is something that’s within their control.”

“They could promise us today if they happen to learn who any of the buyers are, they will notify us immediately, and they will tell us again if any of those buyers get a meeting with the White House or any other political appointee,” Shaub continued. “I have a feeling if he did it under a pen name, he wouldn’t get much for it.”

Shaub Attacks White House

Earlier this month, Shaub called the White House’s arrangement allowing Hunter to sell his art “the perfect mechanism for funneling bribes” to the president, according to Yahoo News.

“They have outsourced government ethics to an art dealer. She mentioned industry standards,” Shaub said, referring to comments made by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. “It’s an industry that’s notorious for money laundering. There’s no standards in that industry.”

“The idea that they’re going to flag any overly priced offers — well, this is art that hasn’t even been juried into a community art sale,” he added. “How are they going to decide what’s unreasonable when they’ve already priced it in the range of $75,000 to $500,000 for a first outing? This is just preposterous and very disappointing.”
