Bombshell new records released by the House Ways & Means Committee have revealed that Joe Biden used email aliases to speak with his son’s business associates hundreds of times while in office as Obama’s vice president.
The Republican-led committee obtained metadata from IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler.
The metadata reveals Joe Biden used alias email accounts 327 times during a nine-year period from 2010 to 2019 to discuss shady foreign business deals.
He used the email aliases to correspond with his son, Hunter, and one of Hunter’s key business associates, Eric Schwerin, among others.
The vast majority of the email communications occurred while Biden was serving as vice president.
The committee revealed that 54 of the emails were “exclusively” between Joe Biden and Schwerin.
The committee describes Schwerin as “the architect of the Biden family’s shell companies.”
The email aliases used were “robinware456,” “JRBware,” and “RobertLPeters.”
The existence of Biden’s email aliases was revealed earlier this year by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), as Slay News reported at the time.
After Comer released those aliases, whistleblowers, who are still employed as IRS investigators, ran a search for the Biden emails.
They specifically looked for the aliases in email exchanges with Hunter Biden and Eric Schwerin.
That search led to the revelation of the 327 exchanges.
A source reportedly told Fox News the whistleblowers could only access metadata for these exchanges.
The source said accessing the content of the emails would require a search warrant.
The whistleblowers turned over the results of the search to the committee after a closed-door meeting Tuesday.
The committee released the information later on Tuesday.
The data shows direct emails between Schwerin and Joe Biden increased during times when the then-vice president traveled to Ukraine.
The committee said the data shows Joe Biden and Schwerin exchanged five emails in June 2014 before the vice president’s trip to Ukraine that month.
After that trip and before Biden’s November 2014 trip back to Ukraine, he and Schwerin emailed 27 times.
Hunter Biden joined the board of the notoriously corrupt Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in April 2014.
Biden has acknowledged that when he was vice president he successfully pressured the Ukrainian government to fire Ukraine’s top prosecutor Viktor Shokin.
At the time, Shokin was investigating Burisma Holdings for corruption and fraud.
During the same period, Hunter Biden held a highly lucrative role on the board, receiving tens of thousands of dollars per month in salary, despite having zero experience in the energy sector.
At the time, the vice president threatened to withhold $1 billion of critical U.S. aid if Shokin was not fired.
Biden has publicly gloated about his effort to fire Shokin but claims it was because the prosecutor is corrupt.
However, the U.S. State Department’s investigation at the time found no such evidence, and investigators even praised Shokin for making sufficient progress in implementing anti-corruption reforms.
Nevertheless, Biden’s allies maintain the vice president pushed for Shokin’s firing due to concerns the Ukrainian prosecutor went easy on corruption and insist that his firing was the policy position of the U.S. and international community.
“Vice President Biden appears to have treated Air Force Two like a corporate jet, traveling to Ukraine and Mexico to advance Hunter Biden’s business interests,” Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) said.
“Evidence from today’s documents show right around the time of international trips like those to Ukraine, Joe Biden was emailing his son and his son’s business partner from private email accounts using aliases while vice president.”
Smith is leading the impeachment inquiry against President Biden alongside Comer and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH).
The chairmen are investigating any foreign money received by the Biden family, whether President Biden was involved in his family’s foreign business dealings and steps allegedly taken by the Biden administration to “slow, hamper, or otherwise impede the criminal investigation into the President’s son, Hunter Biden, which involves funds received by the Biden family from foreign sources.”
The White House has blasted the House impeachment inquiry against the president as baseless.
The Biden admin has maintained that the president was never in business with his son and never spoke to his son about his business dealings.
The Justice Department and individual DOJ officials have denied whistleblower allegations.
Instead, they argue that politics played a role in prosecutorial decisions throughout the Hunter Biden probe.
Hunter Biden has been subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee and is expected to appear for a deposition on December 13.
House Republicans have promised to release the transcript of Hunter Biden’s deposition and have vowed to schedule a public hearing so the president’s son can testify publicly before the American people as his attorney requested.
