White House Asserts Executive Privilege Over 200 Biden Family Records
The White House has invoked executive privilege over 200 records related to Hunter Biden’s business dealings during his father’s tenure as Vice President. The move, which has been met with fierce criticism and accusations of a cover-up, has raised serious questions about the extent of the Biden family’s involvement in questionable business practices.
America First Legal (AFL), a prominent legal advocacy group, recently launched a lawsuit to obtain records from the National Archives (NARA) pertaining to Hunter Biden’s business interactions during the Obama administration. The lawsuit specifically sought communications between January 2011 and December 2013 that mentioned Hunter Biden’s company, “Rosemont Seneca.” AFL’s aim was to shed light on any potential conflicts of interest and undue influence that may have existed between the Office of the Vice President and Hunter Biden’s business ventures.
In response to AFL’s records request, NARA refused to release the majority of the requested documents, citing executive privilege. NARA claimed that disclosing these records would reveal “confidential advice” exchanged between then-Vice President Joe Biden and White House advisers. While NARA did provide 861 records that were deemed not to fall under executive privilege, the refusal to release the remaining documents has raised eyebrows and fueled speculation about what they may contain.
Adding to the growing concerns surrounding the Biden family’s business dealings, NARA has consistently refused to provide lawmakers with any information regarding Joe Biden’s email aliases, such as “Robert Peters,” “Robin Ware,” and “JRB Ware.” This lack of transparency has only fueled suspicions that there may be more to the story than meets the eye. It raises questions about the extent of the Biden family’s efforts to shield their activities from public scrutiny.
The scope of the emails requested by AFL encompassed Hunter Biden’s early business ventures with Rosemont Seneca Partners, a company associated with individuals such as Devon Archer, Eric Schwerin, and Che Feng. These ventures included partnerships with entities linked to the Chinese Communist Party and significant financial transactions involving the state-controlled Bank of China. One of the most notable joint ventures was BHR Partners, in which Hunter Biden’s company, Skaneateles LLC, held a ten percent equity stake.
The recently released emails obtained by AFL shed light on Hunter Biden’s involvement in planning a state dinner for Chinese officials at the White House in 2011. These emails reveal that Hunter Biden was actively engaged in organizing the event, which took place just months before he traveled to China to establish the connections necessary to launch BHR Partners. The emails also indicate a high level of communication between Hunter Biden, his business associates, and the Office of the Vice President.
The AFL-released emails further expose the close ties between Hunter Biden’s business associates and the Office of the Vice President. Employees of Rosemont Seneca had access to confidential information, including White House guest lists, seating assignments, and details about official events such as state dinners. This raises concerns about the potential for undue influence and favoritism within the Biden administration, as well as the blurred lines between personal business interests and government affairs.
Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, Joe Biden has repeatedly denied any involvement in his son’s business ventures. He has claimed that there was a strict separation between his personal and private life and his government duties. However, the trove of emails released by AFL directly contradicts these claims, showing frequent communication between Hunter Biden and his associates with the Office of the Vice President. The revelations cast doubt on Joe Biden’s credibility and raise questions about the extent of his knowledge and involvement in his son’s business dealings.
The recent refusal by the White House to address questions regarding Hunter Biden’s access to Joe Biden and potential selling of influence has only deepened the public’s skepticism. When asked if they were confident that Hunter Biden had ceased selling access to his father, the White House Press Secretary deflected the question, leaving it for Hunter Biden and his representatives to answer. This evasive response has done little to reassure the public and has fueled suspicions that there may be more to uncover.
A recent poll indicates that a significant plurality of voters believe Hunter Biden funneled millions of dollars to Joe Biden as part of a long-running scheme to profit from his position. The poll shows that 45 percent of voters believe Joe Biden received millions, while only 31 percent do not believe these payments occurred. The remaining 24 percent are unsure, highlighting the widespread uncertainty and skepticism surrounding the Biden family’s business dealings. The calls for transparency and accountability have grown louder, with many demanding a full investigation into the matter.
