(TheRedWire.com) – The National Archives and Records Administration has allowed the House Oversight Committee to gain unredacted access to over 1,799 emails that were sent by then-Vice President Joe Biden during the Obama administration. The emails in question total 62,610 pages.
This week the NARA sent a letter to Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., informing him that following his earlier letters on August 30 and September 6 they have decided to allow him access to the documents as part of the House GOP’s investigation into Joe Biden and his connection with his family’s foreign business activities.
The letter points out that the emails included any communication or document where a pseudonym used for Joe Biden appears. These reported pseudonyms include JRB Ware, Robin Ware, and Robert Peters. The House GOP has claimed that during his time serving as the U.S. Vice President Joe Biden had also discussed his son Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukrainian energy giant Burisma, for which Hunter Biden was serving on the board.
The emails also include communications between some of Hunter Biden’s associates and the former Vice President, including communications with Devon Archer and Eric Schwerin. The House Ways and Means Committee had previously released a document that showed that in his communication with Schwerin, Biden had often used the alias “Robin Ware.” Around 50 emails dating back to June 2014 when Biden took a trip to Ukraine with that nickname.
The timing of the release of the emails can be particularly important, as earlier this week it was announced that the House would be holding a floor vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry into President Biden which was first declared on September 27.
On Monday in his statement, Comer argued that the White House was trying to make it appear as if they were cooperating with the investigation, following the recent IRS whistleblowers that had come forth with information about the case.
