Hunter Biden’s ethical troubles and scandals deserve additional examination, according to Politico

Hunter Biden’s scandals could severely damage “the White House’s efforts to position Biden as a global anti-corruption crusader,” according to Politico.  Hunter Biden’s scandals could severely damage “the White House’s efforts to position Biden as a global anti-corruption crusader,” according to Politico.

According to Politico, Hunter Biden’s controversies could jeopardise “the White House’s efforts to frame Biden as a worldwide anti-corruption crusader.” “‘Hiding the Ball’: Hunter Biden Complicates White House Anti-Corruption Push,” by Politico national political correspondent Ben Schreckinger, begins by explaining that liberals had “plenty of reason to tune out” scandals involving Hunter Biden during the 2020 election, before noting that times have changed.

Schreckinger wrote that Hunter Biden has “remained in the headlines” because he is selling his art, which “immediately invited concerns that people who wanted to ingratiate themselves with the president would overpay for his son’s art.”
The White House promised to keep the identities of buyers a secret, but “many ethics experts expressed sharp disapproval of the arrangement,” according to Schreckinger.

The Politico correspondent observed that liberal news organizations have largely ignored scandals tied to Hunter Biden but “that may be changing” nine months into his father’s presidency. “Along with new evidence that at least some of the alleged laptop material is genuine — as well as other emerging evidence about the deals family members have sought or received from people with an interest in influencing Biden — the bipartisan outcry over the painting venture suggests that the Hunter Biden issue is not going away, and that liberals may increasingly tune in,” Schreckinger wrote.

“After all, concerns about money influencing politics have traditionally animated liberals more than conservatives,” Schreckinger added. “And with his father in office, Hunter Biden’s activities no longer bear on an electoral choice between Biden and Trump. Instead, they threaten to complicate the White House’s efforts to position Biden as a global anti-corruption crusader, along with its contention that ‘we have the highest ethical standards of any administration in history.’”

Hunter Biden’s artwork reportedly sold for $75,000 apiece before his official New York City art show even opened. At least five pieces sold, and lawyers have started vetting potential patrons who plan to attend the upcoming show, according to the New York Post. The sale of Biden’s artwork has raised a number of ethical questions for the White House. Walter Shaub, the former Office of Government Ethics director under President Obama, previously told Fox News that Hunter Biden’s lucrative art career has a “shameful and grifty feeling to it.”

Schreckinger, who also quoted Shaub for his Politico feature, noted “ethics experts generally maintain that officials should avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest,” but doesn’t think the Biden family has followed that guidance.

“There is evidence that the Biden family’s activities over the years have regularly presented such an appearance. Far from ethical concerns about Hunter Biden being debunked, the case for close scrutiny only grows stronger when viewed in the full context of the family’s story and in light of events that have unfolded since Election Day,” he wrote. “Biden’s relatives have denied allegations of wrongdoing, and none have been accused of criminal misdeeds related to their business dealings.”
