    I’m ready to see some proof that this is true with the “allegedly” removed.

    This sounds like a deep investigations job for ProPublica if they can access the archive data and “follow the digital/money trail”. If it really exists. ‘Allegedly’ does not equal vetted fact. Nor does emotions. A failing of conservatives in regards to TFG. Let the proof be presented rationally, logically, and impartially.

    It wasn’t a fake email account, Ted

    It was a government issued p c I . g o v account with a fake name.

    I had to use spaces because without them the term disappears…pretty weird

    Funny, this smells of Russian disinformation. Mostly, as wasn’t the unproven allegation that Biden was influence peddling? If that was so, don’t you think he’d have been using his actual name? Nope, sounds like something fabricated by Putin’s hackers, and disinformation campaign to con gullible American’s and others.

    The email accounts seem real, but there is no proof, yet, of a Ukraine link.

    The Washington Post gives this whole thing a 4 Pinocchios: https : // www . washingtonpost . com / politics / 2023 / 09 / 06 / james – comer – claims – that – biden – pseudonym – email – was – code – thats – nonsense / Their synopsis: The Pinocchio TestComer has a tendency to mess up details or lose nuance when he shows up on television, but he really shoots himself in the foot here. He claims that Biden was sending a secret message to his son about how he was going to tell the Ukrainian president to fire the prosecutor — but the email was sent two months after the firing. Skeptics may doubt whether Hunter Biden was copied on the email for family matters, but it’s certainly not because of the nefarious purpose suggested by Comer. Comer earns Four Pinocchios.

    Hey Ted. The National Archives has 5400 emails that are linked to pseudonyms linked to President Biden. What’s on them is unknown. The Republicans are struggling to fine ANYTHING to bolster their fantasy that President Biden is guilty of SOMETHING. There is no evidence of anything nefarious on those emails and the National Archives often kept records out of the public view when presidents are still in office and alive.

    I have at least 6 email accounts associated with me. 4 are work accounts with my name and 2 are personal accounts with no way to associate them with me. One is specifically for online subscriptions and things I need to have an email account for but I don’t want to deal with the inevitable spam those subscriptions lead to. It turns out public officials do the same thing for similar reasons.

    Besides, using an email account that runs through the White House to conduct illegal business would be the height of stupidity, and as much as you want to believe that Biden is a doddering old fool, he isn’t one.

    Don’t most people use a fake name on line? I do, and I’m not even famous. If I were, I would expect every word I posted to be in the news, dissected and edited to be as damaging to me as possible, by my political opponents. Gonna need to first prove that these were Joe Biden’s writing, and then prove that he did it for some illegal or even slightly naughty purpose other than to just provide privacy.

    Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma, a Ukranian company. A couple of years later, the corrupt prosecutor general of Ukraine got fired. Don’t you get it? Hunter was an undercover working to gather evidence to get the prosecutor fired!:-D :-D :-D

    “allegedly”? “appears”? 3+ years of Republican led investigations, varying agencies and appointed investigators and that’s all they got? Why would anyone trust them to govern?

    I would bet that if anyone had any proof of Joe Biden wrong doing they would get an all expense paid 4 week stay at Mar A Lago, including airfare on tRump One, at least one round of golf with tRump (as long as you don’t beat him), a tour of the document room with at least one classified paper for your reading pleasure, a dinner with one of the tRump kids, and the all new autographed tRumpy mug mug.

    “… Hunter Biden was carbon copied on two of the emails House Republicans are seeking and in his letter on Thursday, Comer drew attention to the email on May 27, 2016, which had included an attached copy of Biden’s schedule referencing a phone call Biden had with then Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

    “It is concerning to the Committee, however, that this document was sent to ’Robert L. Peters;—a pseudonym the Committee has identified as then Vice-President Biden,” Comer’s letter said.

    “Additionally, the Committee questions why the then-Vice President’s son, Hunter Biden—and only Hunter Biden—was copied on this email to then-Vice President Biden,” the letter added.

    At the time that email was sent, Hunter Biden was sitting on the board of Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma. He served on the board from 2014 to 2019.

    Thomas Gift, founding director of the Centre on U.S. Politics at University College London, told Newsweek it was too early to predict what Republicans might find in the documents they’re seeking.

    “Any excuse Republicans can muster to throw out the name ‘Hunter Biden’ in a House Oversight Committee, they’re going to take,” Gift said.

    “Although they still don’t have a ‘smoking gun’ drawing a direct line to Joe Biden, they’ve been able to marshal enough evidence that voters are paying attention,” he said.

    “It’s premature to say what Republicans may—or may not—find with their latest request for emails,” Gift went on. “But that may ultimately be secondary to the simple fact that they’re keeping the story in the headlines. Republicans want the knee-jerk response to every criticism of Trump’s legal woes to be: ‘But what about Hunter Biden?’” …" __ Newsweek

    Ted and others, especially Repubs, are pushing the pseudonym scare against Joe Biden as if Joe alone was being untrue and somehow duplicitous in his conversation with his son, Hunter Biden. But, it turns out that using pseudonyms by high ranking officials is a regular security practice. And, while the email themselves are not all available, some indicate that Joe’s messages to hunter had only to do with family matters, not government.

    All members of the Executive Branch have pseudonymous email accounts on a server run out of the EOB. This has been true ever since there was such a thing as email. Republicans have nothing real on Joe Biden, who has been an honest and conscientious public servant for longer than most of his critics have been alive. But, of course, that won’t stop them from lying.

    For over two years there was a Hunter Biden laptop story front and center in every RWNJ daily media/internet/political toon, which was screeched about and frothed over by conservatives until it virtually disappeared around Memorial Day, give or take a few weeks.

    Up pops Joe Biden used pseudonymous email addresses to discuss ‘business’ with Ukraine in email correspondence with son Hunter — while VP. This vague insinuation? accusation? is so far supported by the exact amount of empirically verified evidence as the laptop canard.

    If this Biden email thingy had any supporting proof there’d be no need to keep it concealed for evidentiary trial purposes necessity — the instant such evidence surfaced the GOP would have made sure that FOX, Newsmax, Breitbart, The Gateway Pundit, The New York Post, InfoWars, The Blaze, The Daily Wire, The Epoch Times, The Daily Caller, and Ted Rall all had copies all at the same time so that it would have been the top story at each site the very next morning.

    This thing is headed for the same location as the Hunter Biden laptop story.

    Nowhere.

    But stay tuned, folks. There will be more of the same before Election Day 2024.

    Who knows? Maybe the third time one of these fictions is trotted out will be the charm.

    Reading about Biden’s relationship to Obarstid in Politico, I almost feel sorry for Biden. Almost. Seems that Obarstid couldn’t (or didn’t want to) resist taking cheap shots during the runup to 2020.

    One Democrat who spoke to Obama recalled the former president warning, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f*ck things up.” Speaking of his own waning understanding of today’s Democratic electorate, especially in Iowa, Obama told one 2020 candidate: “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”

    This is really interesting. All of these uber educated lefties just finding out what us deplorable Fox News viewers have known for weeks/months/years, Joe is dirty. We understand of course, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, CBS, ABC, NY Times, WaPo never said a word, not one word. You were used & lied to for years. We knew all along. So very interesting and funny in a sad gallows humor way.
