Vice President Joe Biden used the pseudonym Robert L. Peters to send and receive certain emails as Vice President, according to investigators on the House Oversight Committee. Now the Committee wants access to some of those emails because they believe it could show possible overlap between Joe Biden’s official Vice Presidential duties and his son’s activities in Ukraine.
Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer is asking the National Archives for any emails in which then-VP Joe Biden used a pseudonym, and Hunter Biden or his business partners Eric Schwerin or Devon Archer are copied.
The emails are online right now but they’re redacted. So the committee is asking for unrestricted special access.
Investigators are especially interested in an email regarding VP Biden’s call with former Ukrainian President Petro Peroshenko. It was sent to the pseudonym Robert Peters, and Hunter Biden was the only person cc’d.

Mediaite, which leans left wrote: The Biden White House has repeatedly denied that the president was ever involved in business dealings with his son while in office. Republicans in Congress are relying on the investigation into the Biden family business dealings as a way to move forward with impeachment proceedings against the president.
The Washington Times, which leans right wrote: The letter marked lawmakers’ first move to gather material directly from Mr. Biden to investigate his involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s lucrative foreign business deals. Lawmakers estimate that the deals provided at least $20 million to as many as 10 Biden family members and associates, but none of the money has been directly linked to the president.
