Not long ago, Hunter Biden transitioned.
With President Joe Biden in the White House, Hunter went from a would-be playboy and general scalawag running with shady overseas oil company executives to becoming a mainstream artist.
In short, the president’s son, who illegally obtained guns and slept with strippers, found a way to crack the upscale art world, putting on gallery exhibits that fetched as much as $500,000 for his masterpieces.
The secret to Hunter’s success was his buyers, who, we were assured by the White House, were legit and on the up and up, and, of course, not seeking any political favors from “the Big Guy” in the Oval Office.

Despite that, those names remained as much of a secret as those in Jeffrey Epstein’s Rolodex.
Perhaps no more, however.
With Republicans now in charge of the House, Hunter’s patrons may become public record.
And we may have Hunter’s former lover to thank for the disclosure.
The New York Post reported recently that Hunter may have to reveal the list of buyers as part of an ongoing child support case in Arkansas.
In the Ozarks, Lunden Roberts, a former exotic dancer, and mother to Hunter’s still unacknowledged 4-year-old daughter, is demanding “detailed information” about his finances.

The request stems from Hunter’s effort to reduce his child support payments, as The Free Press recently reported. He’s claiming a “substantial material change” in his financial situation, the reason for which does not seem clear.
In response, Roberts is moving to have her daughter, Navy Joan Roberts, carry Hunter’s last name.
Her lawyer argued that’s important because the Biden name “is now synonymous with being well educated, successful, financially acute, and politically powerful.”
Roberts also wants the Biden family, which so far has refused to acknowledge Navy, to claim her as one of its own. That’s so “she may undeniably be known to the world as the child of the defendant and member of the prestigious Biden family.”
But back to the paintings, Roberts’ lawyer filed a motion just after Christmas seeking “detailed information about the defendant’s works of ‘art’ and the purchasers of the same,” according to the Post.
“Even though the defendant has been the subject of articles by the New York Times regarding his ‘art,’ President Biden’s administration has taken measures to shield the White House from the buyers of the defendant’s ‘art,’ and the defendant was seen in New York City as recently as a few months ago showing and selling his ‘art,’ the defendant has refused to provide any information about his ‘art’ or the income derived from it,” the lawyer, Clinton Lancaster, added.
Lancaster has a powerful ally who is just as interested in Hunter’s income stream as his former lover.
The Post noted that Rep. James Comer, the new chairman of the House Oversight Committee, wrote Hunter’s lawyer a letter with a request similar to Roberts’.

“It is important that we learn who has purchased Hunter Biden’s artwork and whether the purchasers intended to benefit from President Biden’s elected office,” Comer wrote.
“When the son of the sitting President of the United States is the recipient of such high-dollar sums with no accountability or oversight, it raises concerns that the buyers may be purchasing the pieces with the intent of gaining favor with the Biden family.”
