Lawsuit Reveals Redacted Emails

The National Archives have released information revealing that President Joe Biden sent or received up to 82,000 pages worth of private emails while serving as Barack Obama’s vice president. This disclosure comes as a result of a lawsuit brought by the conservative organization, Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF). The Archives disclosed that the trove of correspondence spanned all eight years of Biden’s vice presidency and included messages to or from three shadow email addresses: “,” “” and “”.

SLF General Counsel, Kimberly Hermann, expressed shock at the revelation that Biden had sent 82,000 pages of emails from alias email addresses. She also stated that the American public has a right to know what is in those emails and that the SLF hopes that the National Archives will produce them in a timely and transparent manner. It is currently unclear what topics the emails cover, or who else was included in the messages.

However, at least 10 emails were sent between May 18 and June 15, 2016, with one on May 26 notifying Hunter Biden, the president’s son, of a scheduled phone call the next day between the vice president and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. This correspondence was cc’d to Hunter, as seen on his abandoned laptop, in the months following Joe Biden’s threat to withhold $1 billion in US loan guarantees from Kyiv unless Poroshenko fired Ukrainian Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma Holdings owner Mykola Zlochevsky. Hunter Biden served on the board of Burisma from 2014 to 2019 despite having no prior experience in the energy industry.

The National Archives initially faced legal action from the SLF in August when they filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to determine the extent of Biden’s discussions with his son and others regarding government affairs. This was followed by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) demanding the unredacted copies of Biden’s pseudonymous correspondence in September. On Sept. 12, House Republicans launched an impeachment inquiry into the president, which is investigating whether Biden abused his office or benefited from his son’s overseas business dealings.

In July, former Hunter business partner Devon Archer testified to the Oversight Committee that Joe Biden spoke with his son’s business associates at least 20 times on the phone and that Hunter was placed on Burisma’s board because of his family’s “brand”. Furthermore, Congress has been made aware of a confidential FBI file, from a credible source, alleging that Burisma owner Mykola Zlochevsky paid a $10 million bribe to Joe Biden and his son, amid Shokin’s investigation.

The National Archives have confirmed that they have identified 82,000 pages of emails where Joe Biden used a fake name, but the Biden White House has only cleared 14 pages in response to multiple Oversight Committee requests for documents related to then-Vice President Biden. As such, the House Oversight Committee will continue to use its power to obtain records necessary for their investigation into the Biden family’s corruption. As part of this process, the National Archives has agreed to produce “non-exempt” files on a monthly rolling basis going forward. The parties have also requested a joint status report deadline of December 8th from US District Judge Leigh Martin May. This report will include details on the status of tailoring the initial FOIA request and proposals for next steps in the case.
