President Joe Biden allegedly used a fake name to send more than 50 private emails to a business associate of Hunter Biden’s, according to new documents.
Through the use of the “Robin Ware” alias, then-Vice President Joe Biden exchanged 54 private email messages with Eric Schwerin, a business associate and accountant of Hunter Biden’s, according to emails released by the House Ways and Means Committee.
The newly released evidence was provided to the committee by IRS whistleblowers Joseph Ziegler and Gary Shapley, both of whom testified behind closed doors on Tuesday.
“Through months of testifying for hours and producing hundreds of pages of documentation, and just as many months of baseless attacks against them, their story has remained the same and their credibility intact,” Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo.), the chairman of the committee, said in a statement. “The same cannot be said for President Biden.”

Altogether, Joe Biden received and sent 327 email messages to people such as Hunter Biden, Schwerin, and James Biden through the use of fake email addresses.
Joe Biden and Schwerin communicated five times prior to the then-vice president leaving for Ukraine in June 2014.
The pair’s communication increased dramatically with them exchanging emails 27 times after Joe Biden returned from Ukraine and prior to him returning for another visit in November.
During this time, Hunter Biden had been appointed to the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian company that admitted to hiring the younger Biden in order to place the “political weight” of the family behind the company, according to previous evidence released.
In 2016, an aide for then-Vice President Joe Biden sent an email on May 26, 2016, to an alias “Robert L. Peters,” which cc’d Hunter Biden regarding an upcoming meeting with former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, according to Hunter Biden’s archived laptop documents.
“If it were not for these two whistleblowers, we would still be in the dark about the Biden family’s international business dealings that today’s evidence seems to show happened with Joe Biden’s knowledge and participation,” Smith said.
Despite increased evidence and testimony from whistleblowers, Joe Biden has maintained that he has never discussed business with Hunter Biden or his associates.
In August, Devon Archer, a former business associate of Hunter Biden’s, testified before the House Oversight Committee that then-vice-president Joe Biden had been placed “on speaker” by his son during business meetings during his time at Burisma. Archer also confirmed that Joe Biden had attended at least two business dinners at Cafe Milano in Washington, D.C.
“The evidence they have produced clearly shows Joe Biden was not just aware of his son’s business dealings but was actually involved,” Smith added. “It also shows that the Department of Justice worked hard to make sure that the extent of that involvement never saw the light of day. Thanks to these two whistleblowers, Congress and the American people have now learned the truth.”
