The Biden administration may have lied to the public about an ethics agreement related to Hunter Biden’s art career, according to House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comers (R-KY).

The committee on Tuesday interviewed Georges Bergès, Hunter’s art gallerist, and asked him about who was purchasing Hunter’s art and what his relationship was with the White House. According to Comer, Bergès said that he never made any ethics agreement with the White House, which has claimed there was an ethics agreement between the gallerist and the Biden administration to not discuss the sales. 

“The Biden White House appears to have deceived the American people about facilitating an ethics agreement governing the sale of Hunter Biden’s art. Hunter Biden’s gallerist never had any communication with the White House about such an agreement to make sure there was any sort of ethics compliance at all, and he provided information to the committee revealing how Hunter Biden’s amateur art career is an ethics nightmare,” Comer said. 

Bergès said that Hunter “knew the identities of the individuals who purchased roughly 70% of the value of his art, including Democrat donors Kevin Morris and Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali,” according to Comer. 

“The vast majority of Hunter Biden’s art has been purchased by Democrat donors, one of whom was appointed by President Biden to a prestigious commission after she purchased Hunter Biden’s art for tens of thousands of dollars shortly after Joe Biden’s inauguration. The White House has a lot of explaining to do about misleading the American people,” Comer said. 

Naftali, who paid Hunter Biden for a piece of his hyper-expensive artwork, was appointed by President Joe Biden to the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad. 


Morris, who previously helped pay Hunter’s unpaid taxes, reportedly purchased $875,000 worth of art from Hunter in January 2023. “However, Kevin Morris only paid Mr. Bergès 40% commission of the $875,000 purchase and Hunter Biden and Kevin Morris figured out the financial implications. Mr. Bergès admitted he has never done an art deal like that before,” House investigators noted. 

According to Comer, Bergès was introduced to Hunter by Hollywood video producer Lanette Phillips, who has hosted fundraisers for President Joe Biden. Bergès also reportedly told House lawmakers that he had met with the president in person and over the phone and was at a wedding at the White House. 

The interview was conducted as part of the House investigation into corruption and influence peddling within the Biden family.
