In a recent revelation, documents from the U.S. National Archives indicate that during the Obama administration, the office of then-Vice President Joe Biden exchanged a staggering number of emails with his family members and their associated business firms.
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, procured through America First Legal, highlighted that Biden communicated through his official vice presidential email with his son Hunter Biden, his brother Jim Biden, and their businesses.
The number of emails exchanged between Biden, his family members, and their businesses, totaling over 29,000, challenged statements made by Biden during his 2020 presidential campaign.
America First Legal highlighted the lack of separation, stating, “Our lawsuit against the National Archives just unearthed that Biden’s Vice Presidential office emailed with Hunter and Jim Biden over 29,000 times. So much for that wall…”
The detailed breakdown includes 19,335 emails with Hunter Biden’s private equity firm, Rosemont Seneca; 4,243 emails with Hunter Biden; 1,751 with Jim Biden; and 3,738 with Jim Biden’s Lion Hall Group consulting firm. According to The Daily Wire, the Lion Hall Group allegedly has connections with the Chinese Communist Party.
In 2019, Joe Biden asserted, “I have never talked with my son or my brother or anyone else in the distant family about their business interests, period.” He also stated that there was no hint of scandal during his tenure as vice president during the Obama administration and emphasized the separation his presidential administration would have from private matters.
However, the information obtained by the non-profit law group America First Legal, spearheaded by former members of the Trump administration, appears to contradict Biden’s claims. “These damning numbers further confirm that there was never a wall separating the Office of the Vice President and Hunter Biden’s business endeavors,” the group wrote on X.
The content of the 29,000 emails currently remains a mystery. According to The Daily Wire, the National Archives noted that it will take over 15 months to process all of the information in the emails. Meanwhile, all of the named parties in the FOIA request are currently subjects of a GOP-led investigation into alleged influence-peddling operations within the Biden family.
On Tuesday, Rep. Marjorie Taylore Greene (R-GA) of the House Oversight Committee shared America First Legal’s post on social media, adding, “The Big Guy was definitely involved. Heavily.”
In addition to the FOIA lawsuit by America First Legal, a separate lawsuit against the National Archives by the Southeastern Legal Foundation aims to obtain approximately 5,400 emails from pseudonym accounts linked to then Vice President Joe Biden, focusing on potential discussions with Hunter Biden about foreign business matters from 2017 onwards, according to The Daily Wire.
