Title: National Archives to Release Additional Records on President Biden’s Communications and Hunter Biden’s Business Dealings
The National Archives is set to provide a substantial amount of additional records in response to requests made by House Oversight Committee Chairman, James Comer. These records include President Joe Biden’s communications using email aliases and documents related to his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings. The National Archives has already publicly released over 20,000 pages of records from Biden’s time as vice president.
Initially, Chairman Comer requested unredacted emails that involved communications between President Biden and Hunter Biden’s business associates. The committee is also seeking special access to a case record titled “Records on Hunter Biden, James Biden, and Their Foreign Business Dealings.” Comer specifically asked for any documents or communications that included a pseudonym for Joe Biden, as well as any correspondence involving Hunter Biden and his business partners. The committee is also interested in obtaining drafts of Biden’s speech to the Ukrainian Rada, communications from his time in the vice presidential office, records related to travel, and more.
Chairman Comer has criticized the Biden administration, accusing them of obstructing the document production process. The lack of transparency has raised concerns among committee members, with Comer subpoenaing Eric Schwerin, president of Hunter Biden’s Rosemont Seneca, for a deposition. Comer is also co-leading the House impeachment inquiry against President Biden.
Furthermore, the committee Republicans have accused President Biden of lying about his interactions with his son’s business associates, presenting evidence to support their claims. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) whistleblowers recently provided information suggesting that the president used an alias as vice president to directly communicate with Hunter Biden’s business associate. However, President Biden vehemently denies the existence of such emails.
In response to the Republicans’ impeachment inquiry, the White House has cited Schwerin’s statement denying any knowledge of transactions related to the Biden family’s business dealings. The administration believes this contradiction undermines the Republicans’ claims and pushes back against the impeachment inquiry.
As the case unfolds, the National Archives’ forthcoming release of over 62,000 pages of additional records is expected to shed further light on President Biden’s communications and Hunter Biden’s business activities. This development has the potential to significantly impact the ongoing investigations and further fuel the debate surrounding President Biden’s presidency.
