Hunter Biden artwork bought by Democrat donor named by president to prestigious commission

Hunter Biden's artwork was supposed to be sold anonymously to avoid any appearance of influence trading, but it turns out he knew about at least two of the buyers, and one of them was appointed by President Joe Biden to a prestigious commission.

Elizabeth Hirsh Naftali donated $13,414 to the Biden campaign and $29,700 to the Democrat National Campaign Committee in 2023, Business Insider reported.

It was not known whether Hirsh Naftali purchased Hunter Biden's art before the president named her to the Commission for the Preservation of America's Heritage Abroad in October 2022, eight months after Hunter's first art went up for sale.

The administration said Hirsh Naftali was recommended for the commission by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and that it had nothing to do with Hunter's artwork.

Hirsh Naftali was strongly involved with Jewish causes in Los Angeles and Israel, and the commission dealt with the preservation of numerous Jewish historical sites across Europe, it argued. So, she was seemingly well-qualified for the job.

That doesn't mean she wasn't extorted to buy Hunter's artwork anyway.
