House Committee Drops New Documents After Whistleblower Testimony

By Jerry McConway, updated on December 6, 2023

The House Ways and Means Committee had a closed-door session with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler testifying about Hunter Biden's business dealings.

After the hearing had concluded, more documents were produced, which Republicans say is further proof of Biden's corruption.

In all, the committee dropped a total of 56 new documents on the matter.

House Ways and Means Committee

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler are not new witnesses, but the detailed testimony they gave to the committee is new information.

The two men were better able to dial in the issues regarding alleged tax crimes by Hunter Biden and possibly Joe Biden, as well as the financial connection between the two.

This is important if Republicans are going to be able to establish that Joe Biden was using the office of the vice president to help Hunter Biden's business activities in return for compensation.

After the hearing was over, House Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) stated:

"These documents provide further proof that President Biden was not truthful when he told the American people he knew nothing about his son's business dealings, which involved selling the Biden brand around the world.

"In fact, this new evidence shows Joe Biden exchanged more than 50 e-mails one-on-one with his son's business partner, Eric Schwerin, while Vice President. That activity increased around the times Vice President Biden traveled to Ukraine."

Smith also commented on Biden allowing Hunter to use Air Force Two for what appear to be business rides, stating:

"Vice President Biden appears to have treated Air Force Two 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."

Did Joe Know?

This feeds off that statement made by Chairman Smith, referring to the 50 emails uncovered in a pseudonym email account for Joe Biden.

While the committee cited the 50 emails with Schwerin, another report broke late Wednesday evening that Biden had more than 300 email exchanges with Hunter Biden business partners over nine years.

The emails were exchanged between 2010 and 2019, which covers most of Biden's time as vice president, with 54 of those emails being sent to Schwerin.

Schwerin, according to Republicans, was the man who set up the complex network of shell companies for Hunter to hide his overseas money.

The email accounts used by Biden were "robinware456," "JRBware," and "RobertLPeters."

With the evidence continuing to stack up, it is rather hard not to believe that, at the very least, Joe Biden knew about Hunter Biden's business dealings, something he has vehemently denied since announcing his run for the White House during the 2020 campaign.

Analysis

So, let's be clear… the real issue here is not about Joe Biden knowing about Hunter Biden's business dealings.

The only real fallout from him knowing about these dealings is the fact that he has endlessly denied knowing about them.

The real issue here is whether Joe Biden allowed Hunter to travel on Air Force Two for business purposes and if Joe used his influence to help Hunter Biden's business interests, regardless of whether he made money off it or not.

If Biden was influencing policy to make Hunter Biden money, that is akin to being a foreign agent, which Joe Biden was never registered as.

We just had someone arrested this weekend for this very violation, and he was only a former ambassador, so imagine the implications if a sitting vice president was influencing policy to help another country so his son could benefit financially.

Then, if you add in actual monetary payments, we are talking about bribes, which is a whole other level of criminal.

This is why I have been adamant that I am not necessarily worried about impeaching Biden, especially at this point in his presidency.

My strategy would be to make the case publicly with the threat of charging Joe Biden criminally once he was out of office.

As I have stated before, with Democrats in charge of the Senate, Schumer can kill the impeachment, but federal charges are not something that even Schumer can bury, especially with the precedent being set in the Trump indictments.

I only want two questions answered right now:

First, can they prove that Biden influenced policy to help Hunter Biden, which would translate to foreign agent charges?

Second, do they have proof that Biden received any financial payment for that influence, which would equate to a bribe?

Prove either of those, and you have a federal indictment with Joe Biden's name at the top of the order.
