Is it possible Joe Biden has a bigger email scandal than Hillary Clinton?
According to a federal court filing released Monday, the National Archives found 82,000 pages of emails that Joe Biden sent or received using his pseudonym accounts while vice president.
“The total of Biden private email exchanges was disclosed Monday in a little-noticed status report filed in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought against the National Archives and Records Administration by the nonprofit public interest law firm the Southeastern Legal Foundation,” Just the News reports.

The non-profit constitutional legal group previously said the archives confirmed Joe Biden used the pseudonyms of Robin Ware, Robert L. Peters, and JRB Ware during his time in the Obama administration.
Prior reports noted the National Archives acknowledged 5,400 Biden pseudonym emails.

However, Monday’s released filing shows a more detailed estimate of the scope of Joe Biden’s usage of the pseudonyms.
From Just the News:
The foundation brought the lawsuit seeking access to the emails after Just the News revealed a year ago that Joe Biden had used three pseudonym email accounts — firstname.lastname@example.org, JRBWare@gmail.com, and Robert.L.Peters@pci.gov – during the time he served as President Barack Obama’s vice president.
The status report filed Monday in a federal court in Atlanta was the first to provide an estimate of the size and scope of possible government business conducted through Joe Biden’s private email accounts.
“NARA has completed a search for potentially responsive documents and is currently processing those documents for the purpose of producing non-exempt portions of any responsive records on a monthly rolling basis,” the status report stated. “Given the scope of Plaintiff’s FOIA request, which seeks copies of all emails in three separate accounts over an eight-year period, the volume of potentially responsive records is necessarily large.
“NARA has identified approximately 82,000 pages of potentially responsive documents, and it is currently processing those documents and preparing any non-exempt responsive documents for production on a rolling basis,” the filing added.

The New York Post added:
At least 10 such emails were sent between May 18 and June 15, 2016, and cc’d first son Hunter Biden — with one on May 26 notifying Hunter of a scheduled phone call the next day between the vice president and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, the first son’s abandoned laptop shows.
Then-vice presidential aide John Flynn included Hunter on the missives in the months following Joe Biden’s threat in December 2015 to withhold $1 billion in US loan guarantees from Kyiv unless Poroshenko fired Ukrainian Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma Holdings owner Mykola Zlochevsky.
The president’s son served on the Ukrainian natural gas company’s board from 2014 to 2019, earning an annual salary of roughly $1 million — despite having no prior experience in the energy industry.
Ukraine’s parliament dismissed Shokin in March 2016.
The Southeastern Legal Foundation sued the National Archives in August as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to determine the degree to which Biden discussed government affairs with his son and others.
That same month, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) also demanded the Archives turn over unredacted copies of the former vice president’s pseudonymous correspondence involving his son.
