Biden Sent Spinning By The PAINTER Act – Rep. Waltz Wants The President To Disclose All His Financial Records

President Joe Biden has faced numerous obstacles and challenges in his first six months in office. This includes everything from the ongoing pandemic to the southern border situation.

But he has also faced lingering issues regarding his son, Hunter. Recently, the ethics question of the sale of Hunter Biden’s art has stolen headlines across the country.

And now, one Republican wants to pass a new law that might surprise the Bidens.

Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) introduced new legislation that’s “aimed at stopping” what he claims is “obvious and shameless grift.” He’s referring directly to Hunter Biden’s art sales in this case.

Waltz believes Hunter is once again only trying to profit off his family name.

That’s why this new bill – dubbed the PAINTER Act – is coming down the pike: and if it passes, it will force the President and his family to be more transparent about their business dealings.

Rep. Waltz isn’t the only Republican official who has called out the Bidens for Hunter’s art sales.

But this might be the first example of a GOP member taking real action against it.

Via Fox News:

Fox News exclusively obtained Waltz’s bill, the Preventing Anonymous Income by Necessitating Transparency of Executive Relatives (PAINTER) Act, which will require that presidents and vice presidents provide financial disclosures for all of their non-dependent children.

Currently, there is a requirement under the Ethics in Government Act that requires spouses and dependent children to disclose their financial records.

Here, though, the new legislation would also force non-dependents to disclose — of course, this would include Hunter Biden.

Waltz thinks enough is enough, and Hunter shouldn’t be allowed to slip through this loophole. As he told Fox News:

Look, this is just an obvious and despicable trend.

I mean we can keep going down the list of egregious act after egregious act, and we have to put a stop to it. And I’m going to do my best to get it into legislation.

The Congressman added that this is “falls in the right-thing-to-do category,” because Americans deserve to know who’s “back-channeling, back-dooring and buying influence.”

Hunter’s Chinese ties are also in question, according to Waltz.

The representative alleges that Hunter’s Chinese business partners are involved, and he wants to know “what type of technologies” Hunter might’ve been facilitating.

Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings have been under the microscope for over a year now, and the Burisma probe is still ongoing according to various reports.

This is another development in the Hunter/Joe Biden saga, though. And Rep. Waltz says there’s “a lot to be learned” about a member of the President’s family profiting off the Biden name.

In the end, he says if Joe Biden won’t disclose all this voluntarily, the PAINTER Act will force him to.

The chances of the bill getting passed might be low, but the statement has been made: and once again, the ethics of Hunter’s money-making plans are under heavy scrutiny.

And maybe the introduction of this legislation will prompt a reaction from POTUS, who has had very little to say on the matter to date.
