White House Asserts Executive Privilege Regarding 200 Records of Hunter and Joe Biden

 September 1, 2023

Wednesday, America First Legal (AFL) reported that the White House asserted executive privilege over 200 documents housed at the National Archives (NARA) regarding Hunter Biden's business interactions with the Office of the then-Vice President during the Obama administration.

America First Legal filed a lawsuit to obtain records from NARA pertaining to communications between January 2011 and December 2013 involving Hunter Biden's company, "Rosemont Seneca," as Breitbart News reported.

In response to AFL's records request, NARA refused to release the requested documents, acknowledging that their release would expose "confidential advice" exchanged between then-Vice President Joe Biden and White House advisers. NARA did provide 861 records that did not appear to be protected by executive privilege.

Government Response to Request

“Release would disclose confidential advice between the President and his advisors, or between such advisors,” NARA told AFL in response to its records request.

NARA also refuses to provide lawmakers with any information regarding Joe Biden's email aliases "Robert Peters," "Robin Ware," and "JRB Ware."

Some of Hunter Biden's earliest business ventures involved Rosemont Seneca Partners, an entity associated with Devon Archer, Eric Schwerin, CCP-like entities, and Che Feng, whom Hunter Biden referred to as the "Super Chairman."

Through the "Super Chairman," Hunter Biden established a joint venture, BHR Partners, in which his company, Skaneateles LLC, held a 10% equity stake.

BHR Partners is co-owned by the Bank of China, which is controlled by the Chinese government, and still maintains billions of allocated capital worldwide.

Hunter Biden transferred his stake in BHR Partners to his attorney Kevin Morris, as Breitbart News reported exclusively in April.

What The Documents Show

The emails released by AFL on Wednesday indicate that Hunter Biden participated in the planning of a state dinner for Chinese officials at the White House in 2011, just months before he traveled to China to begin forming relationships in order to launch BHR Partners.

Additional emails released by AFL reveal the frequency with which Hunter Biden and his business associates contacted the office of then-Vice President Joe Biden via their direct line of communication.

Employees of Rosemont Seneca obtained information regarding White House guest lists, seating assignments, and official events, including the 2013 Turkey State Luncheon, 2014 France State Dinner, and 2012 United Kingdom State Dinner.

“These records provide even more evidence that no daylight existed between Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and the Office of the Vice President during the Obama Administration,” said Gene Hamilton, America First Legal Vice President and General Counsel.

“The evidence accumulating against the Biden family’s malfeasance is staggering.”
