WH press secretary Jen Psaki was grilled in her daily briefing Thursday on the sale of first son Hunter Biden’s paintings after the art gallery said he would be meeting in person with potential buyers, raising ethical questions about possible influence-peddling. The arrangement conflicts with a promise from the White House that the buyers of Hunter Biden’s artwork would remain anonymous and that the gallery owner would not inform President Biden’s son who purchased the paintings — pieces that could fetch up to $500,000 each. But CBS News reported that a spokeswoman for Georges Berges Gallery said Hunter Biden is expected to attend a private event in Los Angeles and at a larger show in New York where he will mix with prospective buyers. “He’s looking forward to it. It is like someone debuting in the world. And of course he will be there,” Robin Davis said. Psaki insisted that’s not the case and cited the agreement the White House has with the gallery that the buyers would remain anonymous. “He’s not going to have any conversations related to the selling of art. That will be left to the gallerist, as was outlined in the agreement that we announced just a few weeks ago,” Psaki said.
