Republican leaders go after producer who connected Hunter Biden and Kevin Morris

The impeachment inquiry shifted its focus on Thursday towards Hollywood producer Lanette Phillips, who played a pivotal role in introducing Hunter Biden to his lawyer, Kevin Morris, and art dealer, Georges Bergès, back in 2019.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) have requested Phillips to participate in a transcribed interview as part of the House's impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

GOP testimonies

Republicans claim that witness testimonies indicate Phillips introduced Hunter to Morris at a fundraiser held at her residence for Joe Biden in 2019. Following the meeting, Morris extended a loan of $6.5 million to Hunter.

Morris, referred to as Hunter's "sugar brother" and "fixer," later assumed control of Hunter's ten percent stake in the Chinese state-backed fund, BHR Partners, as confirmed during his testimony to investigators in January, aligning with Breitbart News's earlier exclusive report in April.

BHR Partners currently has approximately $3 billion invested globally, according to its website. Morris asserted that he had "no ulterior motive" when establishing a financial relationship with Hunter.

The letter

In a letter obtained by Breitbart News, Comer and Jordan wrote to Phillips, stating, "Given Hunter Biden’s long record of influence peddling, the Committees seek to understand whether Kevin Morris’s substantial financial support for Hunter Biden was intended to benefit, curry favor with, or gain access to Joe Biden. As the person who introduced Morris to Hunter Biden, the Committees believe that you have information relevant to that question."

Hunter's association with Bergès, facilitated through Morris, is also under scrutiny. Republicans allege that Bergès played a role in art sales totaling $1.5 million, including purchases by Kevin Morris and Elizabeth Naftali, a Democrat donor.

Of particular concern to Republicans are Hunter Biden's art sales, given the potentially nefarious nature of the art world, including issues of money laundering as highlighted in a 2020 Senate report.

Some Republicans express suspicions that the Biden family may have engaged in money laundering through their art dealings.

The Committee

Bergès revealed in his testimony to the House Oversight and Judiciary committees in January that Hunter Biden knew the identities of 70 percent of his supposedly "anonymous" art buyers.

This contradicts the White House's claim that Hunter was not involved in the sale or discussions about his art and would not be informed of the buyers' identities.

The lawmakers emphasized the need to comprehend the nature of Hunter Biden's art endeavor, particularly considering the substantial sales of paintings by a novice like Hunter, raising suspicions given his history of leveraging access to his father and capitalizing on the Biden name.

The House investigators initiated the probe into the Biden family in November 2022, uncovering financial ties involving Joe Biden, James Biden, Hunter Biden, and nine additional Biden family members with payments from the family's foreign business ventures.
