President Joe Biden used at least three pseudonyms when he was vice president to send his son Hunter Biden information about meetings with Ukraine leaders and other family and official business, according to information found on Hunter Biden's laptop and being uncovered by House Republicans.
The Post first revealed in 2021 that the then-Vice President emailed Hunter using the aliases “Robin Ware,” “Robert L. Peters” and “JRB Ware” between 2014 and 2016, informing his son about scheduled talks with then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Kyiv Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, along with other communications.
Now, the House Oversight Committee has found that Joe Biden had private email addresses under those names, and has subpoenaed those records to find out what the emails contained.
The records on the laptop showed a mixture of family and official topics in the emails. Republicans are looking for a smoking gun that proves Biden involved himself in his son's overseas business dealings or got payouts from foreign sources.
Aide John Flynn said he sent the president his daily schedule to one of the private email addresses at least 10 times during a four-week period in 2016 and copied Hunter Biden on it, including a meeting with Poroshenko.
There were also emails forwarded in 2012 to Hunter and Beau Biden regarding Ukraine that involved Anthony Blinken, now Secretary of State, who was then Deputy Secretary of State. Beau Biden was the attorney general of Delaware at the time.
The Robert Peters email address that Biden used had a @pci.gov domain, which was labeled problematic last year.
"Joe Biden has stated there was 'an absolute wall' between his family's foreign business schemes and his duties as Vice President, but evidence reveals that access was wide open for his family's influence peddling," Comer said in a statement.
Using a private email could also interfere with Biden's official duties, and private emails are open to increased hacking attempts in some cases.
People in the public eye like politicians tend to use private emails when they have something to hide, although that may not always be the case.
Republicans may need to subpoena Joe and Hunter Biden to find out why he used private email addresses for official correspondence and why he copied Hunter Biden on his schedule and other official business.
Biden has not been forthcoming about any of the information Republicans have discovered and released, so he surely won't volunteer to give any answers about what was going on.
These revelations are not looking too good for him, and his party is running out of things to indict former President Donald Trump for in order to distract from his and his family's troubles.
