The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) reports that Joe Biden had 5,400 emails, electronic records, and documents in which he used pseudonyms. NARA admitted the existence of the records in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in response to a petition by the Southeastern Legal Foundation, a Georgia-based conservative nonprofit.
“We have performed a search of our collection for Vice Presidential records related to your [June 9, 2022] request and have identified approximately 5,138 email messages, 25 electronic files and 200 pages of potentially responsive records that must be processed in order to respond to your request,” Stephannie Oriabure, the director of NARA’s archival operations division, wrote to the Southeastern Legal Foundation in a June 24, 2022 letter.
The June 2022 FOIA request sought records that included the names “Robin Ware,” “Robert L. Peters,” and “JRB Ware,” all of which Joe Biden used to hide his activities while he was Barack Obama’s vice president. Obama also used a pseudonymous email address while he was president.
Joe Biden used the pseudonyms to communicate with family members including his son Hunter Biden and with top Obama administration staffers.
Suit Filed for Joe Biden Emails
The Southeast Legal Foundation filed suit Monday seeking to compel NARA to release the emails.
“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. The only way to preserve governmental integrity is for NARA to release Biden’s nearly 5,400 emails to SLF and thus the public. The American public deserves to know what is in them,” Kimberly Hermann, SLF general counsel, said in a statement.
The New York Post notes that Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop shows that Joe Biden used the email address [email protected] and that Hunter Biden was cc’d on his father’s vice presidential schedule in 10 emails written between May 18 and June 15, 2016.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer sent a letter dated August 15, demanding that NARA turnover unredacted emails in which Hunter Biden was copied in an email about a call with then Ukrainian President Poro Poroshenko dated May 27, 2016.
New York Post Denounces Biden Email Scheme
The Post’s Editorial Board recently denounced the email scheme.
“President Biden took an oath of office in which he swore his highest duty was to his country, but it’s clear he has only one loyalty: his crooked, access-selling family. It’s positively Mafiaesque. The latest development: House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) is demanding unredacted access from the National Archives to emails Biden sent as veep using any of his three known pseudonyms: Robert L. Peters, Robin Ware, and JRB Ware. (The prez got a little lazy on #3, it seems.),” The Post Editorial Board wrote.
“Comer outlines the clear possibility that these aliases were an attempt by the then-vice president to deflect scrutiny from his dealings with son Hunter — citing a May 2016 email in which Biden’s schedule for the day was sent to Hunter (the only other real person copied on the email) and the ‘Peters’ alias.”
