The Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF) sued the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) over its refusal to provide more than 5,300 emails and documents allegedly linked to pseudonyms used by Joe Biden during his time as vice president.
The non-profit organization He argues that 15 months ago he requested the cited material from NARA without receiving a response to date.
In this sense, House Republicans focused on investigating members of the Biden family have previously pointed out that the accounts cited by the SLF were used by the current president of the nation to allegedly communicate with his son Hunter Biden with the objective of carrying out million-dollar businesses taking advantage of the father’s political position.
The SLF’s lawsuit argues that, Based on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), since June 2022, the aforementioned emails were requested.
In this regard, two days after receiving the request, NARA confirmed through an email cited by the SLF the existence of more than 5,000 potentially compatible documents with the FOIA request.
“We have conducted a search of our collection of vice presidential records related to your request and We have identified approximately 5,138 emails, 25 electronic files, and 200 pages of potentially responsive records that must be processed to respond to your request.
Please note that these totals are an estimate and all material processed may not be applicable to your specific topic.
Archives Operations Division staff are currently processing and reviewing FOIA requests preceding your request.
To treat everyone equally, we have placed your request in our community queue before the date it was received in our office,” the document indicates.
However, the SLF argued that continued delays in its application forced it to sue NARA.
