The National Archives has identified around 731 electronic files relevant to an inquiry into former Vice President Joe Biden’s use of alias email accounts. This revelation, prompted by a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request initiated by the Heritage Foundation, raises additional concerns about the transparency and conduct of Biden during his tenure as vice president.
The FOIA request, submitted in October and initially disclosed by the Daily Signal, aimed to obtain records related to the establishment and utilization of Biden’s pseudonymous emails and associated policy documents. Specifically targeting email aliases such as ‘Robin Ware,’ ‘JRB Ware,’ and ‘Robert L. Peters,’ used during Biden’s vice presidency.
This development comes at a time when the Biden administration is already facing scrutiny on various fronts. The identified documents could provide insights into Biden’s communication practices and whether they adhered to the legal and ethical standards expected of someone in his position.
Earlier this month, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) accused the Biden Administration of impeding the House’s impeachment inquiry by withholding 99.98 percent of emails sent by Biden, including thousands written under aliases.
The National Archives holds these emails, relevant to the impeachment inquiry into President Biden. The aliases were reportedly used to discuss business and share government information with Hunter Biden and two associates, Eric Schwerin and Devon Archer, according to Comer’s office.
The Southeastern Legal Foundation recently filed a lawsuit urging the organization to release approximately 5,400 emails. Comer has requested the National Archives to disclose all communications in which then-Vice President Joe Biden used any of the three pseudonyms.
In August, it was revealed that Joe Biden extensively used pseudonymous accounts to forward governmental information and discuss business with his family.
This disclosure came as a result of a lawsuit by the Southeastern Legal Foundation, seeking to compel the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to provide this material.
The National Archives’ identification of these files underscores the effectiveness of the FOIA. As these files undergo review and processing, they have the potential to illuminate the inner workings of the Biden vice presidency, potentially leading to more significant revelations within the family.
