The National Archives is intending to release hundreds of pages of internal records from the Obama administration. According to some reports, some of those will also relate to Hunter Biden and his relationship with Ukraine. President Joe Biden could prevent the release through executive privilege if he wants.
Reportedly as part of the release, there will be around 300 full or partial emails that were exchanged by Hunter Biden Burisma, a Ukraine energy company.
The emails are going to date back to 2014 when Joe Biden had been serving as the vice president under Barack Obama. Many critics at the time claimed that Hunted had used his father’s political influence in order to strike deals with foreign entities.
On Nov. 30, the National Archives informed the White House of the initial Freedom of Information Act request it received. America First Legal, a nonprofit group founded by Stephen Miller, a former President Donald Trump adviser, was responsible for the request.
Some months ago, Trump used the Presidential Records Act to block the release of documents from his administration by the National Archives. Biden had at the time been critical of this move. However, many do suspect that he might follow a similar path in an attempt to protect his son from any damning emails.
