Lawsuit: DOJ Concealing Records of Biden Family Payoffs with China and Russia

A lawsuit claims that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is deliberately concealing at least 400 pages worth of documents that reveal the extent of the Biden family’s business deals with foreign companies in China and Russia.

According to the Daily Mail, Colorado lawyer Kevin Evans filed his lawsuit with the DOJ in March of last year after he claims the department did not comply with the demands of his Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the records. Evans had asked for any documents related to “any relationship, communication, gift(s), and/or remuneration in any form’ between the president’s son Hunter or brother Jim, and China, Russia or Ukraine.”

Subsequently, government lawyers admitted in court that they are in possession of at least 400 pages of records that are “potentially relevant” to Evans’ request, but have since backtracked and now say they can “neither confirm nor deny” that any such records exist. The next hearing in Evans’ case will be in January.

Evans said that he first filed his FOIA request in November of 2020, shortly after he first read about the numerous alleged business deals that the Bidens had with foreign companies. He claims that the Biden Administration has stonewalled his efforts for nearly two years, which led to his lawsuit.

“They eventually produced about 60 pages of documents, but they’re all letters from senators and congressmen asking about Hunter, and letters from DoJ back,” said Evans. “Then towards the end of last year they said, ”well we have these 400 pages of potentially responsive documents, we need to review them.”

“I’m quite confident that they will move for summary judgment on the privacy exemptions under FOIA in an effort to avoid having to produce these documents,” Evans continued. “But I don’t think they should in this instance, particularly when they’ve disclosed and put on the record that potentially responsive documents exist.”

The Biden family’s foreign business dealings have already been well-documented, despite the Biden Administration’s efforts to cover them up. The most infamous example is Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, working for a shady Ukrainian energy company called Burisma Holdings, despite having no experience in energy. When the company came under investigation for corruption by Ukraine’s Prosecutor-General Viktor Shokin, then-Vice President Joe Biden pressured then-President Petro Poroshenko into firing Shokin, or else Biden would withhold $1 billion in American aid to Ukraine. Shokin was ultimately fired, and Biden went on to publicly brag about his successful efforts to strongarm the Ukrainian government.
