Secret Service refuses to hand over emails naming Biden’s Delaware visitors

Published on

In response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the Secret Service asserts that it cannot disclose emails containing the names of visitors to Delaware properties owned by Resident Biden.

The details may be relevant to high-profile disputes involving the Biden family and the president’s unlawful handling of classified documents.

A Secret Service FOIA officer cited a New York federal appeals court decision regarding visitor data regarding former President Donald Trump’s homes, despite the fact that the decision does not govern the actions of officials in Delaware or Washington, DC.

“Please be advised that emails reflecting visitors to President Biden’s residences in Wilmington, Delaware and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware are not agency records subject to the FOIA. See Doyle v. U.S. Dep’t of Homeland Sec., 959 F.3d 72 (2d Cir. 2020) (finding that emails regarding expected visitors to the sitting President’s residence were not agency records subject to the FOIA.),” the law enforcement officer stated in a message.

In response to a Freedom of Information Act request from The New York Post, the Secret Service previously stated that “no records were located” detailing Biden’s excursions to Delaware.

In September, the Secret Service denied an appeal, reiterating to The Post that “no responsive records” had been found after “additional searches of relevant program offices.”

The most recent response differs in that it states that the requested records cannot be disclosed, as opposed to denying their existence.

The Secret Service, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, denied The Post’s information request on October 10 after reviewing it for over seven months. This is despite the fact that agency employees claim to have laboriously combed through a “vast number of documents.”

“Please be advised, we are currently reviewing thousands of records in an effort to locate any documents responsive to your request,” a Secret Service FOIA office staff member apprised The Post in the month of March.

The House Oversight Committee additionally requested the records. It is unclear how far along this request is.

As the issue of classified materials intensified in January, Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Kentucky) and other Republican congressional leaders requested Delaware visitor logs. This was in response to the president’s revelation that he kept documents near his classic Corvette.

Biden’s weekend visits to one of his Delaware homes have piqued interest, especially since it was revealed that Hunter Biden brought Mexican business associates to the vice presidential residence during his father’s tenure and gathered Russian, Ukrainian, and Kazakhstani business associates with his father in Washington, D.C.

Additionally, the Biden scion allegedly introduced his father to associates from two distinct Chinese companies.

On a 2018 background check form, Hunter listed the Wilmington residence as his residence, and his abandoned laptop displayed an image of a battered crate containing “Important Documents” that was purportedly at the Wilmington residence.

In January, Anthony Guglielmi, the Secret Service’s spokesperson, acknowledged that “the Secret Service does generate law enforcement and criminal justice information records for various individuals who may come into contact with Secret Service protected sites.”

In addition, Fox News reported in January that an anonymous source had stated that “the Secret Service is prepared to provide available background information on vetted guests to Biden’s residence if requested by Congress.”

Special counsel Robert Hur is investigating whether Biden or anyone in his vicinity violated the law by mishandling sensitive documents.

The Justice Department is reportedly preparing to charge Hunter Biden with offenses such as tax fraud, money laundering, and unregistered foreign lobbying.

The foreign business dealings of Beau and James Biden, the son and brother of the president, are being investigated by House Republicans, who call them influence peddling.

Recent congressional testimony indicates that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) signed and ultimately approved the infamous 2020 letter alleging that the Hunter laptop allegation was a Russian disinformation conspiracy.

Multiple former U.S. intelligence officials testified under oath regarding the CIA’s involvement in the dissemination of the letter, which was ultimately signed by over fifty former top U.S. intelligence officials, according to a report that will be released on Wednesday by the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

“One signer of the statement, former CIA analyst David Cariens, disclosed to the Committees that a CIA employee affiliated with the agency’s Prepublication Classification Review Board (‘PCRB’) informed him of the existence of the statement and asked him if he would sign it,” the House report states.

“The Committees have requested additional material from the CIA, which has ignored the request to date.”

The mission of the Prepublication Classification Review Board (PCRB) is to evaluate whether former intelligence employees’ comments, letters, and books contain classified information that must be expunged or redacted prior to publication.
