Comer Targets Biden Aliases As Top Priority

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer recently said one of the top items for investigators leading the impeachment inquiry into President Biden would be to obtain the contents of the emails Biden sent under pseudonyms, the New York Post reported.

It was reported in August that Comer had requested from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) emails then-Vice President Biden sent or received under the pseudonyms Robert L. Peters, JRB Ware, and Robin Ware.

However, the White House has only approved the release of 14 of the roughly 82,000 pages of emails, according to Comer.

During a recent interview on Fox News, Comer said the pseudonym emails are among the “most important amounts of documentation” the impeachment inquiry is seeking, and obtaining them is one of his top priorities when the House returns in January.

Since requesting the unredacted emails from NARA in August, Comer has accused the White House of stonewalling the House’s attempts to access records related to the president as part of its impeachment inquiry.

Comer told Fox News that the few emails the White House allowed NARA to release thus far have been “junk.”

He noted that email evidence cited in the recent indictment of Hunter Biden in California included emails in which Joe Biden was using a pseudonym.

In December, the House Ways and Means Committee, one of the committees leading the impeachment inquiry, revealed that Joe Biden had either sent, received, or was cc’d on at least 327 emails with Hunter’s business associate Eric Schwerin, the managing director and founding partner of Hunter’s former business Rosemont Seneca Partners.

Comer said another priority for the inquiry when Congress reconvenes would be deposing Hunter Biden and “all of his business associates.” He added that the inquiry would also seek information related to the president’s mishandling of classified documents.

Comer also said that the House would begin contempt of Congress proceedings against Hunter for defying a congressional subpoena “as soon as we get back.”
