The piece noted that the White House reportedly came up with a plan that would keep the buyer’s identities “confidential from even the artist himself” in order to take away any concerns about bribery related to the president.
Leading ethics expert, Richard Painter, who was President George W. Bush’s chief ethics lawyer, said the White House plans to “prevent influence-peddling by keeping buyers anonymous” won’t work after Hunter was seen schmoozing at the gallery.
“It shows the deal’s not going to be secret,” Painter shared. “I think the White House needs to go to Plan B.”
Ari Fleischer, former President George W. Bush’s Press Secretary also criticized the sale and suggested Hunter Biden was trading on his name.
“200 people showed up,” Fleischer tweeted. “How many would have attended if his name was Hunter Smith?”

This is one of the most underhanded ways a politician’s family has ever devised to funnel money into their pocket based, not on abilities, but on their last name. https://t.co/BninJmoz22
