CBS News:

Hunter Biden is expected to meet with prospective buyers at two art shows where his paintings will be on display later this year, according to a spokesperson for the New York gallery retained to sell art made by the president’s son.

The shows, a small, private affair in Los Angeles and a larger exhibition in New York City, will give Biden an opportunity to interact with potential buyers of his paintings, which the gallery expects to sell for as much as $500,000.

Asked whether Hunter Biden would attend both events, Georges Berges Gallery spokeswoman Robin Davis said, “Oh yes. With pleasure. He’s looking forward to it. It is like someone debuting in the world. And of course he will be there. ”

Davis also said that at the two art shows “everyone will be vetted…so, whomever is appropriate will be attending.”

Hunter Biden’s appearance at the shows, where he’ll presumably socialize with potential buyers, is seemingly at odds with an agreement struck with the gallery owner that aims to keep buyers’ identities secret from Biden, President Biden, the White House, and the public.

Government ethics experts have expressed concerns buyers could purchase Hunter Biden’s art to gain influence with his father, Mr. Biden. Keeping the buyers anonymous was meant to guard against that.

    In response to questions about Hunter Biden attending the gallery events with potential buyers, White House spokesman Andrew Bates pointed to a July 8th statement which said, “The president has established the highest ethical standards of any administration in American history, and his family’s commitment to rigorous processes like this is a prime example.”

    A source familiar with the matter told CBS News Hunter Biden will not discuss potential purchases, prices, or anything related to the selling of artwork.

    But that raises the question: how would the public ever know what was discussed? There is no known enforcement mechanism or disclosure requirement embedded in the ethics deal. Conversations with potential buyers at the showings would almost certainly stay private.

    Chris Clark, an attorney for Hunter Biden, did not respond to a request for comment.

    Under the agreement that was blessed by the White House, only the gallery owner, Georges Berges, would initially know the buyer’s identity or purchase price. However, buyers could choose to make themselves known. It would also be up to Berges to reject suspect buyers or inflated bids.

    Walter Shaub, former head of the Office of Government Ethics during the Obama administration, said that arrangement amounts to the White House “outsourcing government ethics” to the art gallery owner.

    And he said that Hunter Biden’s attendance at the art shows increases the ethical concerns.

    “Is Hunter Biden going to walk around the art show with a blindfold on?” said Shaub. “It just goes to show you the focus isn’t on government ethics. It’s just showing the child of a president can cash in on the presidency.”

    This is another level of corruption. I don’t even know how the hell this is legal. I bet China is buying his masterpieces for who knows what in return.
