A Republican-led House committee revealed new evidence that contrary to President Biden’s claims that he had no knowledge of his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings, he was actually “intimately involved.”
The House Ways and Means Committee voted on Tuesday to “release 56 new pages of evidence showing that then-Vice President Joe Biden used multiple email aliases and private email addresses to communicate with his son’s business associate and main financial architect,” the panel said in a press release.
“The President appears now to not only have had knowledge but also been intimately involved in Hunter Biden’s business dealings. The material released today further corroborates the previous testimony of IRS agents Joseph Ziegler and Gary Shapley highlighting the incredible level of access Hunter Biden and his business partners had in Joe Biden’s public office while working for foreign businesses,” the press release went on.

The committee’s Executive Session hearing on Tuesday was held with IRS whistleblowers Joseph Ziegler and Gary Shapley whose “credibility” was praised.
“Through months of testifying for hours and producing hundreds of pages of documentation, and just as many months of baseless attacks against them, their story has remained the same and their credibility intact. The same cannot be said for President Biden,” Chairman Jason Smith, R-Mo., said. “So far, our witnesses have produced over eleven-hundred pages of evidence, sat for 14 hours of closed-door testimony with counsel from the majority and minority on this committee, testified publicly before the Oversight Committee, and today, have provided us with new evidence.”
As we continue to learn more about the Biden family’s influence peddling scheme and the preferential DOJ treatment of Hunter Biden, we’re grateful to the IRS whistleblowers who have risked their careers to report wrongdoing.

“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. 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.”

One of the documents released as evidence showed “data on 327 emails showing Joe Biden’s correspondence – via email aliases – with a key Hunter Biden business associate,” according to the press release which expounded:
- 54 of the emails were exclusively between Joe Biden and one of Hunter Biden’s business partners, Eric Schwerin, who was in charge of structuring the family’s various shell companies that launder money around the world.
- 38 were emails from the White House to a Joe Biden alias with a copy to Hunter Biden.
“Among the materials released by the Ways and Means Committee today is an email from Hollywood lawyer and Biden family fixer Kevin Morris who in the process of paying out $2 million to cover Hunter Biden’s back taxes was expressing to a Biden family accountant the need to reconcile Hunter Biden’s unpaid taxes because it posed a ‘considerable risk personally and politically.’ This came in February 2020, mere weeks before the Super Tuesday Democrat primary election in an attempt to clear up one of the single biggest political liabilities to the Biden campaign,” the committee press release noted.
But IRS agent Joseph Ziegler revealed Tuesday that Hunter Biden’s so-called “sugar brother” provided a stunning $4.9 million over three years.
“Hunter appeared to follow a pattern of attempting to avoid paying taxes on relevant income,” Ziegler said in his opening statement.“This continued into 2020, 2021 and 2022, in which Hunter received approximately $4.9 million in payments for personal expenses, again in the form of a loan and gift from Democratic Donor Kevin Patrick Morris.”
