Report: Hunter Biden’s Artwork Sold For $1.3 Million – And One Buyer Was ‘Someone Who Got A Favor From The White House’
A new report indicates that Hunter Biden knew two “friends” who made purchases in what amounted to $1.3 million in sales of his amateur artwork.
One of the buyers was a lawyer friend recently caught smoking a bong on the balcony during a visit with Hunter. Another was appointed to a prestigious federal commission.
The Business Insider reports that Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali, a Los Angeles real-estate investor and philanthropist, bought one of Hunter’s paintings. The outlet describes Naftali as “indeed someone who got a favor from the Biden White House.”
They refer to her as “influential in California Democratic circles” and “a significant Democratic donor” who has given tens of thousands to both the Biden campaign and the Democratic National Campaign Committee this year alone.
And while the timing of the specific art transaction is unknown, they note that “eight months after Hunter Biden’s first art opening, Joe Biden announced Hirsh Naftali’s appointment to the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad.”
Such positions, while unpaid, often lead to ambassadorships.

Hunter’s Art Scheme Has Been Lucrative
Names of the mystery art aficionados who have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for Hunter’s amateur artwork have heretofore remained under wraps.
The Business Insider notes that one such individual – a single buyer – purchased 11 of the First Son’s paintings for an eye-watering sum of $875,000.
They do name one other buyer, somebody The New York Post describes as Hunter’s “sugar brother,” Kevin Morris, a wealthy Los Angeles attorney who has become the president’s son’s confidant and financial backer.

Morris was recently spotted smoking from a bong outside his Los Angeles during a visit from Hunter.
While recreational marijuana use is legal in California, Hunter was the recipient of a sweetheart plea deal for tax crimes and an illegal gun purchase in which he will likely serve no prison time.
That plea deal is contingent on Hunter remaining drug and crime-free for two years.
There is no evidence Hunter partook in whatever Morris was smoking from his bong.
The terms of Hunter Biden’s deal to avoid prosecution (or a guilty plea) on the gun charge:
He agrees to remain drug-free for 2 years & can never own a firearm again.

The New York Times reported in 2021 that the sale of Hunter’s artwork “raised questions in Washington about whether the works might attract buyers seeking to curry favor with the Biden White House.”
The fact that two of the three buyers did receive favors – Naftali, a prestigious commission, and Morris, continued business and legal consulting – while the third remains unknown but shelled out more than anybody could have expected, seems to underscore those concerns.
From Hunter’s artwork to shady business dealings with our foreign adversaries, the Biden family specializes in pay-to-play schemes.

The White House and Hunter’s legal team have thus far refused to comment on the report regarding the art buyers.
Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson has described Hunter Biden’s artwork and the White House’s ability to keep the buyers secret, up until now, as flagrantly corrupt.
“So, the White House is helping the First Son keep his art – he’s now an artist, has been for the last couple of weeks – keep his half a million dollar art transactions secret?” he previously opined. “That just seems like flagrant corruption to me.”
Now that we know two of the buyers, it seems even more corrupt than before.
Now is the time to support and share the sources you trust.
