DOJ accused of refusing to release documents on Biden family business dealings
President Joe Biden's Department of Justice has been exposed for withholding 400 pages of the Biden family business documents regarding Ukraine, China and Russia.
Colorado lawyer Kevin Evans alleged the DOJ is withholding the documents in a recently filed lawsuit.
"Evans is suing the DOJ to force the agency to reveal 400 pages of documents that would reveal some of the interworkings of Hunter and James Biden’s foreign business dealings in China, Russia, and Ukraine, the Daily Mail reported," explained Breitbart. "Joe Biden’s DOJ has prevented the disclosure of the documents by pretending they do not exist."
"Evans demanded the documents under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), but the DOJ has failed to provide the documents, triggering a lawsuit in March," reported Breitbart.
Evans specifically asked that the DOJ hand over documents containing "any relationship, communication, gift(s), and/or remuneration in any form" between Hunter, James, Ukraine, China and Russia.
Evans said the DOJ will fight the lawsuit, even though it has reportedly admitted the documents exist.
"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 said.
"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," Evans said. "The problem is, FOIA has become a toothless vehicle. Courts do not comply with the spirit of the law, they’re more inclined to bend over backwards to accept the government’s position rather than force disclosure."
