Newly-unearthed emails reveal that Joe Biden used several personal emails, all bearing false names, during his vice presidency to discuss foreign business with his son Hunter.
As reported by Just The News, one such email was firstname.lastname@example.org. This email was used in November of 2014 during a diplomatic crisis involving Martin O’Connor, the American ambassador to Turkey, who was set to be released from detention. The U.S. embassy in Istanbul sent an email on the situation to the State Department, which was forwarded to then-Vice President Biden’s senior advisors; one of them, Biden aide Colin Kahl, then forwarded the email to the “robinware” account.
This email was subsequently forwarded by “Robin” to Hunter Biden, with the subject line “Fwd: Mr. O’Connor Being Released from Detention today.”
Another email pseudonym that Biden used as vice president was “Robert L. Peters,” to which an email was sent by an Obama White House staffer discussing a planned call with Petro Poroshenko, the then-President of Ukraine. Copied on the email were Hunter Biden and several of his partners at the firm Rosemont Seneca Partners.
Following these revelations, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) demanded that the National Archives hand over all unredacted emails that Biden ever sent to Hunter and Hunter’s business partners during his vice presidential tenure.
“The Committee’s need for these Vice-Presidential records is specific and well- documented,” said Comer in his letter on Thursday, which was sent to National Archives and Record Administration (NARA) head Colleen Shogam. “The Committee seeks to craft legislative solutions aimed at deficiencies it has identified in the current legal framework regarding ethics laws and disclosure of financial interests related to the immediate family members of Vice Presidents and Presidents— deficiencies that may place American national security and interests at risk.”
These revelations present yet another scandal for Biden, who repeatedly and aggressively asserted during the 2020 campaign that he never discussed foreign business with his son Hunter. In addition to these new emails, Hunter’s former business partner Devon Archer confirmed in congressional testimony that the then-vice president was indeed included on over 20 calls between Hunter and his various foreign business partners.
