For years, President Joe Biden reportedly used multiple shadow email addresses to communicate with his son Hunter’s former business partner.
According to the New York Post, on Tuesday the House Ways and Means Committee released an 11-page log of the emails sent and received by him between 2010 and 2019.
The log shows that the current president used a variety of pseudonyms to hide his identity, including “robinware456,” “JRBware” and “RobertLPeters.”
The documents show that Joe Biden aliases, such as Robin Ware, JRB Ware, and Robert L. Peters, also formed the basis of email addresses.

In total, he reportedly sent 327 emails to Hunter’s former business partner, Eric Schwerin, the founding partner and managing director of Hunter’s defunct Rosemont Seneca Partners firm.
“Of those emails, 54 were exclusively between Joe Biden and Schwerin, who the committee charges as the architect of the Biden family’s ‘various shell companies that launder money around the world.’ The committee also found that 38 emails were sent from the White House to a Joe Biden shadow account with Hunter copied on the messages,” the Post notes.
In a statement, House Ways and Means Committee chair Jason Smith noted that a number of the emails were sent/received when then-Vice President Biden was traveling to Ukraine on government business:
Biden’s June 2014 Ukraine trip is a case in point.
He & Schwerin exchanged 5 emails in 3 days in the lead up to a Ukraine trip.
After the Vice President returned, he and Schwerin emailed 27 times in the run up to the VP’s return trip to Ukraine that November. pic.twitter.com/BQxDFLuLvR

“Before a June 2014 visit to Ukraine, Joe Biden and Schwerin had only exchanged five emails, the committee found, but after the trip, Joe Biden and Schwerin emailed 27 times,” the Post notes.
In a statement, Smith said, “Vice President Biden appears to have treated Air Force 2 like a corporate jet, traveling to Ukraine and Mexico, to advance Hunter Biden’s business interests.”
“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,” he added.
Unfortunately, the logs do not include the actual contents of the emails. But, the Post notes, the logs do at least corroborate “previous testimony from the IRS whistleblowers indicating that Hunter and Schwerin had an ‘incredible level of access’ to Joe Biden while they worked out foreign business deals.”
All this comes months after BizPac Review confirmed that Schwerin visited the White House at least 27 times during Biden’s tenure as vice president.
“He met with Anne Marie Person at least three times between February and June 2016, a Fox News Digital review found. Steve Ricchetti, who currently serves as Biden’s White House counselor, also met with Schwerin at least twice in 2016. The two visits occurred in room 272 on Feb. 29 and room 276 on Aug. 17 at the Old Executive Office Building (OEOB),” according to Fox News.
“In addition to Person and Ricchetti, Schwerin made three other visits with staffers from Vice President Biden’s office in 2016, including John McGrail, who was a counselor to Biden, on July 15 and Sept. 9 at the White House. He also met with Kaitlyn Demers, who was serving as an associate counsel in Biden’s office in 2016, on June 28. She served as a special assistant to President Biden and chief of staff Ron Klain until last summer,” Fox News notes.
All this also comes following another report that about how secret email addresses were so popular during the Obama administration that then-White House press secretary Jay Carney once defended their use.

During a June 4th, 2013 press briefing, Carney was specifically asked to respond to an Associated Press report claiming that a number of senior Obama administration officials had secret email addresses.
“Some of President Barack Obama’s political appointees are using secret government email accounts to conduct official business … a practice that complicates agencies’ legal responsibilities to find and turn over emails under public records requests and congressional inquiries,” the AP reported at the time.
During the press briefing, a reporter asked, “What is the standard of transparency this administration is going to use in FOIA requests about these things, or in disclosing these going forward?”
“And is it — or has it been the policy of this administration, whenever there is a congressional inquiry about email traffic on a given subject, that both the established email address and the secondary, or secret one, is always given over to Congress?” the reporter added.
Carney replied by stating that the use of secret email addresses made “eminent sense.”
“Let’s be clear — this is a practice consistent with prior administrations of both parties and, as the story itself made clear, any FOIA request or congressional inquiry includes a search in all of the email accounts used by any political appointee. So the answer is, all of this information is provided,” he said.
“Having alternate email addresses for Cabinet secretaries and other high-profile officials makes eminent sense, much as it does for columnists, for example, of major publications who provide email addresses for their readers but have alternate work email addresses so that if they are inundated in one account with either public emails or spam or the like, that they can continue to use their other account for normal work,” he added.
