Biden and Obama Must Approve Release of Alias Emails Amid Allegations of Influence Peddling

On Tuesday, August 29, 2023, The Washington Times reported that Joe Biden’s three known email aliases are being withheld by the National Archives and Records Administration. 

House investigators have requested access to the emails, but the National Archives has stated that they will not provide the records until they receive permission from both Biden and former President Barack Obama.

The use of email aliases by high-ranking officials has been a topic of controversy in recent years. In 2013, the Obama-Biden White House defended the use of “alternate email addresses” for high-ranking officials, stating that it made “eminent sense”. 

However, the current situation with Biden’s aliases has raised concerns about potential influence peddling by the president.

The National Archives officials have said they are withholding over 5,000 White House emails, including those with about three known Biden aliases, due to concerns about executive privilege and the protection of sensitive information.

A spokeswoman for House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer told The Washington Times and said the records won’t be released until Biden and Obama give them permission to do so

Spokeswoman Jessica Collins said that “National Archives officials have indicated they have sent some of the records to representatives for former President Obama and Joe Biden for their approval to be released.” 

“President Biden promised the most transparent administration in history, and we fully expect him to approve the release of these records.”

However, House investigators argue that the emails are necessary for their ongoing investigation into potential wrongdoing by the Biden administration.

The controversy surrounding Biden’s email aliases has only grown in recent weeks. The New York Sun reported on August 29, 2023, that the National Archives is refusing to release thousands of emails in which President Biden uses various pseudonyms until it receives permission from both Biden and Obama. 

The emails in question reportedly discuss business with Hunter Biden, the president’s son. The use of email aliases by high-ranking officials is not a new phenomenon, but it has become increasingly controversial in recent years. 

The controversy surrounding Biden’s aliases highlights the ongoing tension between transparency and the protection of sensitive information in government. 

As the investigation into potential wrongdoing by the Biden administration continues, the release of these emails could have significant implications for the future of American politics.
