(RepublicanInformer.com)- Republican Senator for Arkansas Tom Cotton has some questions for President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who appears to be establishing a lucrative new career…as an artist.
The Aransas legislator said that there are “tough” ethical questions surrounding Hunter Biden, who isn’t just selling paintings for as much as $500,000 each to anonymous bidders, but who is also still investing in companies linked to the Chinese Communist Party.
Let’s not forget that Hunter Biden promised repeatedly before his father was “elected” and even after his father entered the White House that he would divest from these investments in China. He has yet to divest from any Chinese investment, and we’re six months into the Biden presidency.
In a July 8 Tweet, Cotton shared a piece by the Washington Post about how the White House is grappling with the ethics of Hunter Biden, who has no artistic training or experience, selling “abstract” artwork for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Some very tough ethical questions about whether the president's son, who is still investing in CCP-linked firms, should take $500,000 in payment (bribes) for his "artwork."
Better consult the experts on this one!https://t.co/uLubqk40nl

Concerns have been raised that selling the artwork for such huge sums of money could ultimately prove to be a lucrative way of selling influence.
Hunter Biden is already known for (allegedly) making lucrative foreign business deals off the back of his link to then-Vice President Joe Biden, so the fact that he is suddenly selling artwork for huge sums to anonymous bidders raises questions about whether these bidders might eventually ask Hunter Biden to return the favor.
The art is being sold with the assistance of New York art dealer Georges Berges. An exhibition will be held in the autumn where Hunter’s art is expected to sell for between $75,000 and $500,000 per piece.
Berges has reportedly agreed to reject any offer from buyers that he believes is “suspicious” or is much higher over the asking price, and White House Press Secretary referred to this when journalists asked her about the ethics issues…but it doesn’t change the fact that the asking prices are already massively inflated.
Tom Cototn has a point about this…
