According to new evidence provided by the House Ways and Means Committee, Joe Biden was not just using aliases to contact Hunter Biden while he served as vice president of the United States. He also frequently communicated directly with his son’s business partners on regular occasions.
Fox News writes that the committee has “obtained metadata from IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler that reveals Joe Biden used alias email accounts 327 times during a nine-year period — 2010 to 2019 — to correspond with his son, Hunter, and one of Hunter’s key business associates, Eric Schwerin, among others.
The majority of the email traffic took place while Biden was vice president.”
Biden has repeatedly told the public that he has never discussed business with his son.

Despite the denials, the committee revealed that over 50 of the emails Joe Biden sent under a fake name were “exclusively” between the then-vice president and Schwerin, who the committee labels “the architect of the Biden family’s shell companies.”
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.) noted that several of the emails were exchanged during times when then-Vice President Biden traveled to Ukraine, while Hunter sat on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, writes The New York Post.
“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,” Smith said in a statement. “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.”
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.
Joe Biden bragged to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018 that during a December 2015 trip to Kyiv, he threatened to withhold $1 billion in foreign aid for Ukraine if then-Prosecutor-General Viktor Shokin wasn’t fired.
The Ways and Means Committee also revealed that Hunter Biden received millions more than previously thought from his “sugar brother” who buddied up to the president’s son in 2019 as the Democratic primary campaign was kicking off.
It’s now thought that the lawyer “loaned” the president’s son nearly $5 million, helping him cover his taxes and purchasing his “artwork.”
“Lawyer Kevin Morris allegedly loaned the president’s son millions of dollars after the pair met at a campaign fundraiser in December 2019,” writes The Daily Mail.
“IRS agent Joseph Ziegler declared the shocking figure with additional documentation on Tuesday with the House Ways & Means Committee as Hunter faces two charges of tax evasion.
Ziegler, who investigated Hunter’s taxes for five years before he was removed from the case this year, provided legislators with further documents including an email on Tuesday dating to February 2020.
The communication reportedly reveals how less than two months after they met, Morris was contacting accountants on Hunter’s behalf and warning them to work quickly to avoid ‘considerable risk personally and politically.'”
The former IRS agent said that Hunter’s income from Morris, a major portion of it labeled as loans, echoes the First Son’s alleged pattern of trying to avoid paying taxes by calling money he may have received by selling the “Biden brand” as loans.
With his father in charge of the Department of Justice, Hunter likely had little worry about his “loans” being looked at too closely by the IRS. House Republicans released a report earlier in the week showing that the DOJ deviated from “standard processes” to give the president’s son “special treatment” while it spent years investigating him.
“The House GOP’s findings are laid out in an interim staff report released Tuesday by the House Judiciary Committee, House Ways & Means Committee, and the House Oversight Committee,” according to Fox News.
The chairmen of those panels – Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Jason Smith R-Mo., and James Comer, R-Ky. – are leading the impeachment inquiry against President Biden. The chairmen are investigating any foreign money received by the Biden family, whether President Biden was involved in his family’s foreign business dealings, and steps allegedly taken by the Biden administration to ‘slow, hamper, or otherwise impede the criminal investigation into the President’s son, Hunter Biden, which involves funds received by the Biden family from foreign sources.’
‘The whistleblowers, who came forward only after IRS leadership failed to address their concerns, noted several deviations by Justice Department officials ‘from the normal process that provided preferential treatment, in this case to Hunter Biden,’” the report states.
The report points to Shapley and Ziegler’s claims that the Justice Department “allowed the statute of limitations on certain charges against Hunter Biden to lapse, prohibited line investigators from referring to or asking about President Biden during witness interviews, withheld evidence from line investigators, excluded the investigative team from meetings with defense counsel, and tipped off defense counsel about pending search warrants.'”
The House Oversight Committee recently subpoenaed Hunter Biden and the president’s brother, James Biden, to testify about the hundreds of thousands of dollars they have received allegedly from being close to the president.
