House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) submitted a request Wednesday to the National Archives to present unredacted records featuring pseudonyms President Joe Biden allegedly used during his time as vice president.
“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 stated.
According to the New York Post, prior emails released by the National Archives and discovered on the Hunter Biden laptop show Joe Biden used a pseudonym email address – [email protected] – as vice president. They also showed John Flynn, Joe Biden’s aide, copied Hunter Biden on ten emails regarding the vice president’s schedule.
Comer’s request to the National Archives includes other pseudonyms Joe Biden used, such as “JRB Ware” and “Robin Ware.”
Comer claimed that the House Oversight Committee has evidence of Joe Biden “speaking, dining, and having coffee” with Hunter Biden’s “foreign business associates” during Joe Biden’s time as vice president.
“We also know that Hunter Biden and his associates were informed of then-Vice President Biden’s official government duties in countries where they had a financial interest,” Comer said. “The National Archives must provide these unredacted records to further our investigation into the Biden family’s corruption.”
While the House Oversight Committee’s letter to the National Archives primarily requests “unrestricted special access” to information pertaining to Hunter Biden’s $1 million position on the Burisma board of directors in an effort to examine any email messages between Hunter Biden and Joe Biden regarding Burisma and Ukraine, the committee’s request prominently features the request for records pertaining to Joe Biden’s use of pseudonyms.
In a letter to the National Archives, Comer requested “[a]ny document or communication in which a pseudonym for Vice President Joe Biden was included either as a sender, recipient, copied or was included in the contents of the document or communication, including but not limited to Robert Peters, Robin Ware, and JRB Ware.”
