Republican Senator Ted Cruz argued that Joe Biden used several email aliases when he was vice president because the “natural implication is you’re trying to hide something.”
Last week, the Daily Fetched reported that the National Archives admitted it was in possession of almost 5,400 emails, documents, and electronic records showing Biden using email aliases while he served as Vice President.
The Southeastern Legal Foundation, which sent the June 2022 Freedom of Information Act request, claims the records show Biden forwarded government information and discussed government business with his son, Hunter Biden, and others.
“He would use these pseudonyms on official government emails that were to and from Hunter Biden,” Cruz said on an episode of his podcast “Verdict.”
“You know, if you’re wondering how much the Biden family business was Hunter selling access to, and more fundamentally, favors from daddy, the news that broke this week as the number of emails with Joe Biden’s fake email addresses, the National Archives and Records Administration, acknowledged that they possessed up to 5,400 of them,” Cruz said.
“That’s a stunning number. Look, as I said, we had a prior podcast where we discussed that there is no legitimate reason for the sitting Vice President of the United States to use a fake email on official government emails to his son about Ukraine at the same time that Hunter Biden was making millions of dollars being paid by a Ukrainian oligarch for daddy’s favors.”
Cruz also blasted Biden for failing to answer questions on the matter and also called out the media for not covering the scandal.
Cruz later added:
“Well, listen, if you use a burner email, a fake email if you use a burner phone as it’s now been reported Joe Biden did, the natural implication is you’re trying to hide something.”
“You’re trying to get around the law. There’s a reason you’re hiding who you are. If not, there’s no reason to have the fake email,” he said.
“And again, the White House has not attempted to give any innocent explanation for this.”
“And to be honest, I can’t imagine what an innocent explanation would be, but their innocent explanation is, well, gosh, we’re the White House, and so the media doesn’t cover it.”
