House Oversight Committee Chairperson, James Comer, requested the National Archives on Wednesday to provide complete records without any omissions, where President Biden might have used a pseudonym name, Robert L. Peters, while he was Vice President.

This comes as Republicans take steps towards potentially starting an impeachment investigation regarding Biden’s involvement in his son Hunter’s business activities abroad, a press release stated.

House GOP reveals demand for unredacted records of Biden who used a pseudonym during his time as VP

Emails that were made public earlier by the Archives and obtained from Hunter’s laptop left behind, show that Joe Biden used the email address “Robert.L.Peters@pci.gov” during his time as Vice President under President Barack Obama. In some of these emails, his assistant John Flynn included Hunter in the conversation, sending him 10 emails that included Joe Biden’s daily agenda from May 18 to June 15, 2016.

Chairperson Comer’s recent appeal involves records where Biden might have used other fake names like “Robin Ware” and “JRB Ware.” The request also specifically asks for particular documents, such as the preliminary versions of Biden’s speech to Ukraine’s parliament in December 2015.

“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 (R-Ky.) said in a statement.

“We already have evidence of then-Vice President Biden speaking, dining, and having coffee with his son’s foreign business associates,” Comer added.

“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. The National Archives must provide these unredacted records to further our investigation into the Biden family’s corruption.“

Potential insights into Biden family business activities as Committee investigates fake name use

The main focus of the House Oversight Committee’s request centers around Hunter Biden’s role on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, where he earned $1 million annually. He joined the company in 2014, around the time his father took charge of the Obama administration’s approach to Ukraine, NY Post reported.

However, the committee’s wide-ranging appeal for records related to the president’s fake names has the potential to reveal various types of information. This could encompass details about other business endeavors involving the Biden family in places like China.
