The National Archives has admitted it is in possession of almost 5,400 emails, documents, and electronic records, showing Joe Biden using pseudonyms while he served as Vice President.
In response to a June 2022 Freedom of Information Act request by the Southeastern Legal Foundation, the NARA confirmed the existence of the records.
The request asked for emails about the accounts of Robin Ware, Robert L. Peters, and JRB Ware, which were pseudonyms Biden used while serving as vice president under Obama.
On Monday, the Southeastern Legal Foundation filed suit against NARA for the release of the records.
The group claims the records show Biden forwarded government information and discussed government business with his son, Hunter Biden, and others.
“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,” Kimberly Hermann, SLF general counsel, said in a statement.
“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,” Hermann added.
The group accused the NARA of “dragging its feet” since the June 2022 FOIA request, adding that not a single email has been produced since the records were acknowledged.
“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 on June 24, 2022, Monday’s lawsuit revealed.
As the Daily Fetched reported earlier this month, Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and two other Obama administration officials used alias email accounts.
It is unusual for government officials to use an email alias, which raises questions about why Obama administration officials utilized aliases and whether government secrets were compromised.
Below is the list of the six officials who used alias emails under Obama and Biden, per Breitbart:
Lisa Jackson, 2013
Jackson used the “Richard Windsor” alias as the former EPA Administrator, according to the Washington Post:
Loretta Lynch, 2016
Lynch used the email alias “Elizabeth Carlisle” as Obama’s attorney general, the Federalist reported:
Eric Holder, 2015
Holder used three separate alias email addresses after he took office in 2009 as the attorney general.
Barack Obama, 2016
Obama used an alias email address to communicate with his secretary of state, two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. None-for-profit Marco Polo unearthed his alias as “Obama725.”
Joe Biden, 2016
Joe Biden used aliases “Robert Peters,” “Robin Ware,” and “JRB Ware” for personal and professional use.
