President Joe Biden’s use of various email pseudonyms during the Obama administration has sparked controversy and could have HUGE implications for Biden’s election campaign.
Obama’s “Vice President Biden” Remark
Former president Barack Obama referred to the current commander-in-chief, President Joe Biden, as “Vice President Biden” during an event at the White House last year.
A Deeper Look
Many saw it as a friendly reminder of the past, but there might have been more to it than meets the eye, especially considering Obama’s previous remarks doubting Biden’s judgment.
Obama’s Past Doubts
During his 2020 campaign, Obama had candidly advised Democrats about Biden’s potential missteps, warning, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to -— things up.”
Now, the former President finds himself in a storm, asked to shield his former vice president from an escalating controversy dating back to his era.
Over 5,000 Emails from Biden Under Different Names
Various committees and private entities are hot on the trail of over 5,000 emails from Biden, which were dispatched under a slew of different names during Obama’s tenure.
The Presidential Records Act
Under the Presidential Records Act, Obama has a month to prohibit the release of these emails. The objective? Safeguard Biden during increasing public anger over the alleged influence-peddling operation orchestrated by Biden’s son, Hunter.
Biden’s Chosen Nicknames
Names such as Robin Ware, Robert L. Peters, JRB Ware, Celtic, and the mysterious “The Big Guy” have all emerged as Biden’s chosen nicknames.
The unsettling revelation of a president with various aliases has left many Americans in a conundrum.
While the sheer number of pseudonyms is surprising, the act itself isn’t. Past officials, including former Attorney General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, have had similar practices.
Previous Officials’ Use of Aliases
Biden’s defense team and spokespersons have downplayed the issue, harkening back to former White House press secretary Jay Carney’s justification of such practices, assuring that these emails remain available for Freedom of Information Act requests and any further congressional probes.
Downplaying the Issue
The real problem lies in the content of some of these emails. Discussions on these platforms have reportedly touched upon official foreign travel plans and the appointment of Hunter’s acquaintances to esteemed positions.
More critically, some emails could unveil Biden’s knowledge about his son’s foreign clientele, challenging every instance in the past where he pleaded ignorance about his son’s dealings.
An Illusion or Reality?
Biden’s associates have always insisted that Hunter sold “the illusion of influence,” not actual political influence, but Republicans strongly challenge these claims.
Washington’s elite and insiders have always had an unspoken understanding about influence-peddling.
But as more light is thrown on Hunter’s foreign dealings, evidence suggests that foreign clients received more than “the illusion.”
Implications of Biden’s Involvement
Claims have surfaced that Joe Biden directly influenced decisions, like the firing of Ukrainian prosecutor general Viktor Shokin.
House Oversight Committee’s Struggles
While the House Oversight Committee struggles to extract substantial material from the Bidens, revelations that the President communicated with Hunter through aliases are concerning.
Their attempts to access these emails from the National Archives and Records Administration have all been rejected, causing many eyebrows to rise.
Calls for an Impeachment Inquiry
With mounting evidence, calls for a full-scale impeachment inquiry are gaining popularity.
The primary objective isn’t necessarily impeachment but an in-depth investigation to ascertain if the Bidens were trading the illusion or the reality of influence.
Given the vast powers of Congress, there’s potential for the forcible disclosure of these emails.
Transparency as an Opportunity
However, both Biden and Obama have the power to release these emails voluntarily. Transparency could ease any lingering doubts, especially if the emails contain trivial or personal content.
But if they were used to discuss sensitive information, it raises the burning question: Why the need for an alias?
Inside sources have revealed that a trusted FBI insider mentioned that a Ukrainian entrepreneur claimed he had bribed Joe Biden.
The businessman was reportedly told to send the money through complex account channels and to avoid using Biden’s name directly.
Hunter’s Laptop Emails
An email from Hunter’s laptop also displayed instructions to then-business partner Tony Bobulinski.
There were explicit directives not to mention Joe Biden’s involvement, referring to him using code names like “The Big Guy” or “Celtic.”
Code Names Or Just Workplace Banter?
Whether these pseudonyms were innocent quips, security measures, or a cover for more sinister activities remains to be seen.
Can Biden Come Out of This Clean?
If President Biden wishes to put this issue to bed and assure the public of his innocence, the path is clear: transparency. The President has a golden opportunity to clear his record, especially crucial in an election year.
However, continued resistance could be costly. If evidence surfaces highlighting corruption or deceit, it could be a massive blow to his campaign.
