Last month, the National Archives admitted it had more than 5,000 pseudonymous emails from Joe Biden. The House Oversight Committee wants to review these emails, which are suspected of containing proof that these accounts were being used to send sensitive government information to his son Hunter Biden.
This situation naturally puts Barack Obama in a rather huge pickle. By barring the release of these emails, Obama becomes irrefutably tied to both the scandal and the cover-up of Biden’s corruption. Obama may not be particularly concerned about protecting Joe Biden, but should he bar the release of the emails, it will raise questions about whether he is doing so to protect himself as well. As we’ve previously reported, there’s little reason to believe that Obama wasn’t aware of what his vice president was up to.
In fact, the Obama White House reportedly cleared Hunter Biden to serve on the board of Burisma. Back in 2019, I noted that Biden had effectively turned his own corruption into another Obama scandal and that by running for president again, he might take Obama down with him. Now Obama is in a tough spot with potentially no winning option: bar the release of those emails and play a role in the cover-up, or do nothing and potentially expose his own role in Biden’s corruption.
