Biden Communicated With Hunter’s Business Associates Through Email Alias

During his vice presidency, Joe Biden employed email aliases and private addresses for extensive communication with his son Hunter Biden and associates, as disclosed in recent records released by the House Ways & Means Committee.

Metadata from IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler uncovered 327 instances of Biden utilizing alias email accounts from 2010 to 2019 to correspond with Hunter and key business associate Eric Schwerin, with a significant portion occurring during Biden’s tenure as vice president.

The committee says 54 of the emails were “exclusively” between Joe Biden and Schwerin, who the committee describes as “the architect of the Biden family’s shell companies.”

The email aliases used were “robinware456,” “JRBware” and “RobertLPeters.”

Earlier this year, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., brought to light Biden’s email aliases. Subsequently, Fox News Digital discovered that the whistleblowers, who remain employed as IRS investigators, conducted a search for these aliases within email correspondences involving Hunter Biden and Eric Schwerin. This search unveiled the existence of 327 exchanges.

According to a source from Fox News Digital, the whistleblowers were only able to access metadata for these exchanges, clarifying that obtaining the email content would necessitate a search warrant. Following a closed-door meeting on Tuesday, the whistleblowers provided the results of the search to the committee, which then released the information.

The data reveals a notable increase in direct emails between Schwerin and Vice President Biden, particularly coinciding with the vice president’s visits to Ukraine. According to the committee, there were five email exchanges between Joe Biden and Schwerin in June 2014, preceding the vice president’s trip to Ukraine that month. Following this visit and before Biden’s return to Ukraine in November 2014, they exchanged emails 27 times.

It’s worth noting that Hunter Biden joined the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in April 2014. During Joe Biden’s vice presidency, he acknowledged pressuring Ukraine to dismiss prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma Holdings while Hunter Biden served on the board, receiving substantial monthly payments. At that time, the vice president threatened to withhold $1 billion in critical U.S. aid if Shokin was not fired.

Supporters of Biden assert that the vice president advocated for the dismissal of Shokin because of apprehensions that the Ukrainian prosecutor was lenient on corruption. They contend that Shokin’s removal aligned with the policy stance of both the U.S. and the 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 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.”

The White House has criticized the House impeachment inquiry against the president, dismissing it as unfounded. They assert that the president was never involved in business with his son and never discussed his son’s business dealings.
