House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) asked the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) on Wednesday for unredacted communications between then-Vice President Joe Biden and son Hunter Biden’s business partners.
The Republican’s letter sought “unrestricted special access” to emails that were previously released but redacted.
A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request resulted in the edited communications being posted on NARA’s website. The litigation was brought by America First Legal, which was founded by former Donald Trump advisor Stephen Miller.
New evidence has emerged that then-Vice President Joe Biden's office colluded with Hunter Biden's business partners.

Comer insisted that unfiltered versions of the documents are critical to his investigation into alleged criminal activity by the Biden family. He asked that they be provided by Sept. 20.
The representative observed that some of the emails have already raised eyebrows in Congress. One of note was from Dec. 4, 2015 from longtime Biden business associate Eric Schwerin to Kate Bedingfield in the vice president’s office. The email was sent at 10:45 a.m.
Schwerin gave quotes he said the vice president should offer when fielding media questions over Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
Bedingfield responded at 2:30 p.m. with, “VP signed off on this.”
Comer’s letter declared the Committee is perplexed by the timing of the email. Biden associate Devon Archer recently testified that at that same time there was a Burisma board of directors meeting in Dubai.
He confirmed that Hunter Biden called Washington in regards to “pressure that Burisma wanted him to relieve.”
It was just three days later when Vice President Biden flew to Ukraine. While there, he threatened Kyiv with the U.S. withholding $1 billion in aid if then-prosecutor-general Viktor Shokin was not fired.
The VP claimed that Shokin was too lenient concerning corruption. Apparently that leniency did not extend to Burisma, where Hunter was then on the board of directors. The prosecutor-general was conducting an investigation into founder Myloka Zlochevsky.
The company wanted him gone and the investigation terminated, and both goals were reached. Any elementary school sleuth could connect these dots. And Comer proved himself to be a master at relentlessly digging for evidence.
The Kentucky Republican also asked NARA for all calendars related to Joe Biden’s’ eight years as Obama’s vice president. That sound nervous Democrats hear is years of corrupt entanglements unraveling even as the incumbent prepares for reelection.
