WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), ranking member of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, and U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), ranking member of the Committee on the Judiciary, sent a letter to Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president, demanding answers to a previous request about Joe Biden’s reported use of non-government email for official business.
Last year, on July 30, 2021, the senators requested information from the White House about reports that, when Joe Biden served as Vice President, he used non-government email for official business, including the transmission of government information to his son, Hunter Biden. At that time, reports indicated that then-Vice President Biden used the following pseudonyms and email addresses:
· “RobinWare456 @gmail.com,”
· “Robert.L.Peters @pci.gov” and
· “JRB Ware.”
A recent news report revealed an additional non-government email pseudonym associated with Joe Biden: “67stingray.”
Despite multiple requests from the senators’ staffs for a response to the July 2021 letter, the Biden administration has refused to provide any information and has failed to explain whether government emails and related communications were properly stored and archived.
The senators wrote, “The White House’s failure to respond to our initial questions has raised even more questions with respect to the universe of communications that then-Vice President Biden engaged in with his family while he was Vice President and whether those communications have continued during his presidency.”
