Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Contradicts WH Statement on First Son’s Collectors

The White House said in July 2021 that a “system” had been “established” to ensure the identities of those who bought Hunter Biden’s artwork would remain anonymous for ethical reasons.

However, the first son’s art dealer testified that a new agreement to stop the disclosure of Biden’s art buyers was not set up for several months following that statement and said the first son knew the identities of approximately 70% of those buyers.

George Bergès, the art dealer for Biden, took part in a closed-door, transcribed interview before both the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees earlier this month as part of the House impeachment inquiry against President Biden.

Fox News Digital reviewed a transcript of Bergès’ interview.

House investigators, during his interview, showed Bergès a statement made by then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki on July 9, 2021.

“After careful consideration, a system has been established that allows for Hunter Biden to work in his profession within reasonable safeguards,” she said. “All interactions regarding the selling of art and the setting of prices will be handled by a professional galleries, adhering to the highest industry standards. Any offer out of the normal court would be rejected out of hand.”

Psaki added, “The galleries will not share information about buyers or prospective buyers, including their identities, with Hunter Biden or the administration, which provides quite a level of protection.”

When pressed further, Psaki stressed that “it would be challenging for an anonymous person who we don’t know and Hunter Biden doesn’t know to have influence — so that’s a protection.”

However, Bergès testified that at the time of the White House’s July 2021 statement, he had an agreement with Hunter Biden which called for him, instead, “to disclose to Hunter Biden who the purchasers of his art were.” Bergès said that contract was agreed to in December 2020.

Bergès said that it was not until September 2021 that a new agreement with Hunter Biden was created. That agreement stated that “the gallery will not disclose the name of any buyers of artist’s artwork to artist or any agent of artist.”

Bergès stressed, though, that there was not a “White House-involved agreement,” and that Hunter Biden did know the identities of approximately 70% of the buyers of his art.

Meanwhile, Bergès testified that he had spoken to President Biden both on the phone and in person.

Bergès told lawmakers that he spoke to the president “at the White House wedding during Hunter’s — Hunter’s daughter getting married.”

Hunter Biden’s daughter, Naomi Biden, got married at the White House on Nov. 19, 2022.

As for his phone conversation with the president, Bergès said, “My daughter finished camp, and he called to, you know, wish her, congratulate her for finishing camp and I answered the phone.”

Bergès’ testimony comes after the House formalized the impeachment inquiry against President Biden.

The inquiry is being led by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith.

House Republicans are investigating any foreign money received by the Biden family, whether President Biden was involved in his family’s foreign business dealings and steps allegedly taken by the Biden administration to “slow, hamper, or otherwise impede the criminal investigation into the President’s son, Hunter Biden, which involves funds received by the Biden family from foreign sources.”

Republican investigators have suggested they are suspicious over whether Hunter Biden’s art career, which began in recent years, has led to any conflicts of interest between wealthy buyers and the White House.

“The Biden White House appears to have deceived the American people about facilitating an ethics agreement governing the sale of Hunter Biden’s art,” Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., said in a statement earlier this month, calling the agreement a “sham.”

    In July 2022, 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.

    It is unclear whether Hirsh Naftali’s purchase of Hunter Biden’s artwork occurred before or after that appointment. Membership on the commission is an unpaid position often filled by campaign donors, family members, and political allies — the same crowd that often winds up with US ambassadorial appointments.

    Hirsh Naftali’s fundraising activities mark her as the kind of well-connected donor who often wins such appointments, regardless of any relationship they might have with the president’s family.

    But they do not address the possibility that Hunter Biden might have voiced his support for her appointment after she purchased one of Hunter’s art piece for $500,000.

    The Biden crime family lying again you’re fucking shitting me who’d of thunk.

    It probably be easier to list anything ETHICAL that Joe Biden and his family has done; than to list all of the illegal and unethical acts they’ve done over the past 40+ years.

    They all just need to be put behind bars, after being prosecuted for the first 50 charges against them – seize every red cent of assets, sell their properties, antique, rare and luxury vehicles and all of those funds go directly to the National Debt. Is there any doubt that Joe hasn’t been money laundering the Billions he gives to other Countries?

    What about the prolific and profitable Drug Cartel payments so that the USA didn’t come down on the Mexican cartels? Obama & Biden created a new service for the dying USPS when in office. Citizens no longer needed mail pick up/delivery 6 days a week – it’s an antiquated agency. So they began trafficking illegal drugs bought on the dark web and proof of the Investigation that proved this can be found by using the search words You can read the Meeting Minutes of the Investigative Committee or watch the actual meetings. Obama & Biden set up the USPS to move illegal drugs, mostly Fentanyl, via the USPS and then every other year they also utilized the USPS to alter the Mail-In Ballots.

    It is way past time to begin prosecuting the Biden Crime Family and then negotiate deals with them when they turn evidence on the Clinton’s and Obama and so many others~

    First step is Hunters’ crooked Art Sales and Joe violating the Oath of Office = those 2 charges would be the easiest and fastest to prove & prosecute them on. Let’s Go!

    The next Trials should be on Income Tax Evasion and Foreign Funds, not reported or paying the proper income taxes. Why don’t they prosecute the Quickest and Easiest to Prove. Those two are enough to Impeach him; and then sweeten the pot with videos of the Southern Border, the lack of his Border Czar doing any tasks while VP is more than enough. Biden knows that Harris and Mayorkas are NOT protecting his Country. There are 3 STRONG cases and EASY cases to prove. So why are the GOPs not doing this?
