HUNTER’S ‘ART’ PROJECT: Ex-Obama Ethics Chief Calls New Art Sales ‘Grifty’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.21.21

From Fox News:

Former President Obama’s ethics chief ripped into President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, for selling his art at prices ranging up to half a million dollars to anonymous buyers. 

Walter Shaub, the former Office of Government Ethics director under Obama, said that the lucrative arrangement has a “shameful and grifty feeling to it.”

“The notion of a president’s son capitalizing on that relationship by selling art at obviously inflated prices and keeping the public in the dark about who’s funneling money to him has a shameful and grifty feel to it,” Shaub told Fox News on Monday.

Shaub also warned that the anonymity granted to Hunter’s clients could allow “influence-seekers” to funnel money to the Biden family. 

“Just as hotel charges and real estate purchases created a risk of unknown parties funneling money to the Trump family for potentially unsavory purposes, Hunter Biden’s grotesquely inflated art prices create a similar risk of influence-seekers funneling money to the Biden family,” Shaub said.

Shaub said he thinks that Biden and his art dealer, Georges Berges, “should disclose the identity of the purchasers” so the public can see if the buyers try to “gain access to [the] government.”

He also said that the “public should not have to take it on blind faith that government officials will behave” regardless if “any attempt to curry favor or buy influence is likely to succeed.”

GOP SENATORS: Why Was Secret Service Involved in Hunter Biden’s Gun Probe ‘After Protection Ended’?

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.27.21

*UPDATE*

Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson demanded answers Friday over recent reports the Secret Service interceded in a police probe after Hunter Biden’s gun was found in a trash can outside a convenience store.

The Republicans are “seeking information from federal law enforcement agencies regarding their reported role in an incident involving a firearm belonging to Hunter Biden long after Biden’s U.S. Secret Service protection had ended.”

“The USSS allegedly requested paperwork on a gun purchased by Biden and thrown in the trash by his brother’s widow,” posted the Washington Examiner on Twitter.

From Fox News:

Police responded to a 2018 incident in which a gun owned by Hunter Biden, the son of President Biden, was thrown in a trash can outside of a market in Delaware, sources tell Fox News. 

The story was first reported by The Blaze last year and then again by Politico on Thursday. 

A source with knowledge of the Oct. 23, 2018 police report told Fox News that it indicated that Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, threw a gun owned by Hunter in a dumpster behind a market that is near a school. 

 A firearm transaction report reviewed by Fox News indicates that Hunter Biden purchased a gun earlier that month.

The owner of the market confirmed to Fox News that the Delaware State Police were called to the market on Oct. 23, 2018. 

“We did the right thing and called the police,” the market’s owner said. 

The owner also said that the market turned over its surveillance tape to the police. 

The Delaware State Police referred Fox News to the Delaware Attorney General’s Office when asked about an Oct. 23, 2018 incident involving Hunter Biden, saying that the investigation had been referred to the state AG. The state police said Fox News would need to file a public records request to obtain the police report. 

Politico and The Blaze reported that nobody was charged or arrested as a result of the incident.

LOESCH on HANNITY: It’s ‘Biden Privilege’ to Lie on Your Gun Form and Still Come Out With a Book

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.06.21

Dana Loesch stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to discuss the series of scandals surrounding Hunter Biden; saying there’s no privilege like ‘Biden Privilege’ when it comes to skirting the law.

“I assume you probably have heard what I heard, as it relates to what else is on that laptop. If it was anyone with the last name ‘Trump’ we would have seen it all by now, would we not have?” asked Hannity.

“There’s more here to condemn Hunter Biden more than there ever was with the Russian Collusion Witch Hunt,” said Loesch.

“He was an addict when he was filling out this form. He was an addict when his gun was stolen and deposited in a grocery store near a school,” she added. “This is ‘Biden Privilege.’ For all the discussion on ‘White Privilege,’ there is no privilege like ‘Biden Privilege.’ You can still be taken seriously, lie on a gun form, and still come out with a book.”
