Nat’l Archives Admits Having 5,400 Records w/ Biden Aliases, Won’t Release Them

'All too often, public officials abuse their power by using it for their personal or political benefit. When they do, many seek to hide it...'

(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration acknowledged in a new lawsuit having nearly 5,400 documents that contained the name of one of Biden’s email pseudonyms, such as Robert L. Peters, JRB Ware or Robin Ware.

Specifically, a search yielded “approximately 5,138 email messages, 25 electronic files and 200 pages of potentially responsive records,” the Washington Examiner reported.

But despite the weaponized administrative agency’s prominent role in the lawfare attack on former President Donald Trump over his classified documents—with its unprecedented and spurious demands for Trump’s personal effects having set the stage for a controversial Justice Department raid on Mar-a-Lago—the National Archives was continuing to lay active cover for the sitting president and to stonewall those seeking to gain access to what amounted to clear evidence of criminal conduct.

Southeastern Legal Foundation is now suing to compel the agency to release the materials, Just the News reported, after the foundation filed a Freedom of Information Act request more than a year ago to obtain the documents on behalf of the media company’s editor, John Solomon.

Both that and a subsequent FOIA request have failed to produce the materials, they said.

“All too often, public officials abuse their power by using it for their personal or political benefit. When they do, many seek to hide it,” Southeastern Legal Foundation general counsel Kimberly Hermann said.

“The only way to preserve governmental integrity is for NARA to release Biden’s nearly 5,400 emails to SLF and thus the public,” she added. “The American public deserves to know what is in them.”

But the timing of the new lawsuit comes, coincidentally, as the email aliases—first discovered two years ago—are back in the news, with a House Oversight investigation this month having just unearthed the Robert L. Peters pseudonym that Biden used to track the Ukraine dealings of his son Hunter.

Although the then-vice president during the Obama administration claimed never to have discussed Hunter’s business dealings with him, the emails show he certainly kept close tabs on them—and used them to inform U.S. policy in at least one case, involving a $10 million bribe from Burisma executive Mykola Zlochevsky to force the firing of Ukraine inspector–general Viktor Shokin.

According to Hunter’s former business partner, Devon Archer, Biden also dialed into dozens of conference calls with Hunter and his business associates, where he reportedly talked about “the weather” while selling the “illusion of influence”—for which the “Big Guy,” in some cases, received a 10% cut of the profits.

In addition to the FOIA lawsuit, Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky. is also seeking the National Archives records for his probe into the Bidens.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said recently that if the Biden administration does not comply with the release of records, that will prompt Republicans to advance on an impeachment probe.

Many believe that Attorney General Merrick Garland specifically appointed special counsel David Weiss to investigate the matter as a way of stonewalling any House investigation of the Bidens.
