    The Bidens have always maintained they did not coordinate, mix or discuss personal and government business activities, but evidence in the Archives conflicts with that claim. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer pressed Wednesday for deeper access to records in the Biden family probe held by the National Archives, while pointedly warning that America's historical agency is threatening to withhold some evidence as "personal." Comer made the revelation in a letter to Archivist Colleen Shogan that requested unrestricted access to a collection of memos the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has released in redacted form titled “Records...

    The White House asserted executive privilege over 200 records housed at the National Archives (NARA) concerning Hunter Biden’s business interactions with the Office of the Vice President during the Obama administration, according to America First Legal (AFL) on Wednesday.America First Legal launched a lawsuit to obtain records from NARA encompassing communications between January 2011 and December 2013 with the name of Hunter Biden’s company, “Rosemont Seneca.”In response to AFL’s records request, NARA refused to release the records, admitting the disclosure would reveal “confidential advice” between then-Vice President Joe Biden and White House advisers. NARA did provide 861 records that apparently...

    Red State ^ | 8/31/23 | Nick Arama
    How many times over the past few years has Joe Biden said he never spoke to his son Hunter about his business? When that was found out to be untrue, Biden's team tried to change their phrasing and claimed that he never was in business with his son, and that he had always said that. That was some kind of an Orwellian switch: just accept what we say, and forget the prior evidence. That takes some kind of gall to pitch that position now, when we can all see what Biden and his team said before. In addition to all...

    The National Archives and Records Administration has admitted that it is in possession of nearly 5,400 emails, electronic records and documents that potentially show President Biden using a pseudonym during his vice presidency, it was revealed on Monday. NARA confirmed the existence of the trove in response to a June 2022 Freedom of Information Act request by the Southeastern Legal Foundation, a nonprofit constitutional legal group. The request asked for emails pertaining to the accounts of Robin Ware, Robert L. Peters, and JRB Ware – pseudonyms the 80-year-old president was known to use in the White House during his time...

    The National Archives and Records Administration acknowledged possessing potentially up to 5,400 emails connected to then-Vice President Joe Biden's pseudonym accounts that he used to forward government information and discuss business with his son, Hunter Biden, and others, and on Monday the Southeastern Legal Foundation filed a lawsuit to compel the agency to turn over the emails. The non-profit constitutional legal group that filed the lawsuit said the archives confirmed that Biden used the pseudonyms of Robin Ware, Robert L. Peters, and JRB Ware during his time in the Obama administration. The archives' admissions confirm years of reporting from Just...

    National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) officials negotiating with President Joe Biden's legal team over his retention of classified materials appear to have abruptly changed course on the eve of the 2022 midterms and informed the president's attorney that the agency would need to seize the materials he had discovered at the Penn-Biden Center in Washington, D.C. "Pat, I believe that Gary will be reaching out to you and/or Bob. Based on some discussions this evening, we need to change our approach," reads a Nov. 7, 2022, email from NARA's William (Jay) Bosanko and Biden attorney Patrick Moore. "I believe...

    I am a former assistant U.S. attorney, worked on two Supreme Court confirmations, and clerked for two federal appellate judges. I have reviewed the indictment brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith in the documents case against former President Donald Trump, and have serious concerns with the way this case is being framed in the public and with some aspects of the way the prosecution itself is being conducted. Here are six major issues I see that need to be addressed by the special counsel’s team. 1. Interplay Between the Espionage Act and the Presidential Records Act Others have already spoken...

    Special Counsel Jack Smith officially indicted former President Donald Trump on Thursday for his retention of presidential documents following his departure from the White House. The Attorney General Merrick Garland appointee was hard-pressed to cook up charges but somehow still confirmed Americans’ widely held suspicions that this is just a continuation of the deep state’s ploy to get Trump, which started with the Russia collusion hoax in 2016. “Today’s act of open legal ‘warfare’ by the highly politicized and partisan Department of Injustice, has taken things to a new level, and set a dangerous precedent,” the Trump campaign said in...

    Japanese researchers discovered a large dakō iron sword and a giant bronze mirror in a 4th-century burial mound in the city of Nara. The two items were found last November in the Tomio Maruyama Tumulus. According to the local government groups, the 125-pound, shield-shaped decorated mirror was the first of its kind to be discovered, and the seven-foot iron serpentine dakō sword is the largest and oldest from the Kofun period (300 CE–710 CE) to be found. Experts say this allows the two items from the Tomio Maruyama Tumulus to be classified as national treasures. The shield-shaped mirror is two...

    Prior to former President Donald Trump, the Justice Department had not been involved in enforcing the Presidential Records Act, according to testimony from a National Archives and Records Administration official. On Wednesday, the House Intelligence Committee released a transcript from an interview in March with NARA officials in which the agency's chief operating officer, William Bosanko, testified that the agency had "found classified information in unclassified boxes" for all the presidential administrations "from Reagan forward." He also said the boxes of materials were in NARA's custody at the time the agency made the discovery. [link to pdf] However, Bosanko, who...

    The National Archives is claiming it has evidence that may undercut Trump’s claims that the presidential records he took to Mar-a-Lago were automatically declassified, according to a leak to CNN. Trump says the documents were declassified as soon as he took them to Mar-a-Lago. Acting Archivist Debra Steidel Wall however, claims there is evidence Trump and his advisors knew of a so-called declassification process. Steidel Wall sent Trump a letter informing him the National Archives are going to give Special Counsel Jack Smith 16 records which may prove the documents were not automatically declassified. And the witch hunt continues. CNN...

    The Obama Foundation likely stored classified presidential records illegally in a private facility at Hoffman Estates in Illinois for more than a year after President Barack Obama left the White House, according to America First Legal (AFL). In 2018, more than a year after Obama left the White House, the National Archives (NARA) and the Obama Foundation entered into an agreement to permit the foundation to maintain possession of presidential records for the purpose of digitizing and overseeing them as part of the Obama Presidential Center, AFL alleges. The agreement shows the Obama Foundation kept classified documents at a private...

    The National Archives and Records Administration responded Thursday to a letter sent to top congressional leaders from former President Donald Trump's lawyers regarding the handling of classified materials at Mar-a-Lago, rebutting claims that the agency didn't assist the transition team. NARA responded to a letter sent to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner and the Gang of Eight congressional leadership Wednesday from former President Donald Trump's attorneys that states the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago last August for the materials was unnecessary. The Gang of Eight consists of the top four congressional leaders and the head Republicans and Democrats from the...

The America First Legal Foundation highlighted the revelation Thursday by publishing a letter that the National Archives sent to the conservative legal group in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The Archives told the legal group it "must deny your request in full for approximately 1,170 pages" found at the Penn...

    For years, Joe Biden has maintained a Sgt. Schultz defense to allegations that his family has profiteered on influence peddling with foreign countries and companies. Despite mounting evidence to the contrary, Biden maintains that he “knows nothing, nothing” about Hunter Biden’s business deals. He recently doubled down on this defense by even denying that family members received money from foreign sources. He repeated his denial even after the release of financial transfer reports from his own administration showing millions transferred from China. Now, emails have emerged that show that Biden personally helped draft responses to the controversial deals in 2015...

    Nine boxes of documents found at President Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center think tank in Washington, DC, have not been reviewed for classified material by the National Archives, according to a report. The boxes were shipped by Biden’s attorney Patrick Moore to his law office in Boston before the discovery of 10 classified documents at the 80-year-old president’s namesake think tank. The National Archives revealed the quantity of boxes taken from Moore’s office, and the fact that they have not been reviewed, in response to questions contained in a February letter from Sens.
