A revealing CNN segment showed even the pro-Biden pundits don’t believe Hunter Biden’s art dealing scheme is above board.
During a segment of CNN’s “Newsroom,” co-host Victor Blackwell mocked Hunter selling his art for hundreds of thousands of dollars as a poorly veiled pay-to-play scheme.
“I have a very modest collection,” Blackwell told co-host Alisyn Camerota on Friday. “But the idea that an artist enters the market at $75,000 to half a million dollars…it just doesn’t happen unless you’re going for the name.”
“And what does that name mean in this context?” Blackwell asked rhetorically.
Camerota just chuckled, “Well, we’ll continue to follow that.”
The White House has come out in defense of Hunter’s upcoming art auction, vowing to keep the prospective art buyers anonymous.
“I think it would be challenging for an anonymous person, who we don’t know and Hunter Biden doesn’t know, to have influence,” said White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday.
“Of course, he has the right to pursue an artistic career just like any child of a president has the right to pursue a career.”
According to former President Obama’s chief of ethics Walter Schaub, Hunter’s new art dealing is the “perfect mechanism” to pay for access to Joe Biden.
“I mean, they have outsourced Government Ethics to an art dealer,” Schaub said. “She [Psaki] mentioned industry standards. It’s an industry that’s notorious for money laundering.”
“There’s no standards in that industry, and the idea that they’re going to flag any overly priced offers, well this is art that hasn’t even been juried into a community art sale,” he added. “How is, how are they going to decide what’s unreasonable when they’ve already priced it in the range of $75,000 to $500,000 for a first outing? This is just preposterous and very disappointing.”
CNN openly admits Hunter Biden has a new pay-to-play pipeline with the full protection of the White House and all they do is dismissively joke about it.
Hunter Biden has been allowed to walk away as the intermediary for his family’s pay to play scheme that violates the oval office and jeopardizes national security.
