Republicans grill attorney general on Hunter Biden

During a House Justice Committee hearing Thursday, Republicans urged Attorney General Merrick Garland over ethical concerns regarding Hunter Biden's art, which cost up to $ 500,000, and other financial deals.
Rep. Ken Buck presented a recently sold painting of President Joe Biden's adult son and compared it to paintings by Claude Monet and Edgar Degas, which cost $ 700,000 and $ 500,000, respectively.
"And you might think that he did some kind of training with a world-famous artist, but you'd be wrong again if you thought so," said Buck. "Or maybe that he's been selling his works for years - and unfortunately you're wrong again."
Grilled on the subject, Garland said he wouldn't answer any U.S. citizen's questions about investigations.
Buck wanted to know if he would appoint a special investigator, and Garland said he would take Buck's request "under consultation".
Federal officials are already conducting a criminal tax investigation against Hunter Biden, and with the added concern of peddling his artwork, Buck found that his office had sent a letter to the Justice Department asking for Garland to do one Special investigator appoints Hunter Biden to take over the investigation.
"It is now apparent that President Biden may be directly involved in the ongoing investigation into his son's money transfers and dealings, which raises serious questions about whether then-Vice President Joe Biden was aware of and potentially benefited from the influence his son was leading "Read the letter according to the New York Post.
Garland replied by saying he didn't know Buck's letter.
At another point during the hearing, Garland was asked questions by GOP Rep. Tom McClintock, who stated that alleged communications related to Hunter Biden suggested that his finances were intertwined with those of the President.
Garland responded by saying he would "not comment on this investigation".
Chinese business records suggest that Hunter Biden apparently still has a 10% stake in a Chinese government-affiliated firm that has invested in companies sanctioned by the United States.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Hunter Biden's stake in the investment firm on October 4th, to which she replied, "He's been working to get this down."
Earlier this month, Hunter Biden hosted an art exhibition in Hollywood where one of his guests was Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. At his Los Angeles exhibit, Biden sold at least five prints of artwork to unspecified buyers for $ 75,000 each.
