House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) is seeking more information related to the "anonymous" purchasers of Hunter Biden’s art.
Comer sent a letter to Georges Bergès, owner of the Georges Bergès Gallery, requesting "all communications between his New York gallery and the White House about their deal to hide these purchasers’ identities," according to the committee.
Comer wants Bergès to participate in a transcribed interview with committee's staff before February 15, 2023.
“For over a decade, the Biden family has profited from Joe Biden’s positions as a public official. Your arrangement with Hunter Biden raises serious ethics concerns and calls into question whether the Biden family is again selling access and influence," Comer wrote in the letter, dated Thursday, Jan. 25.
"Despite being a novice artist, Hunter Biden received exorbitant amounts of money selling his artwork, the buyers’ identities remain unknown, and you appear to be the sole record keeper of these lucrative transactions," he also wrote.
