He said the Justice Department initially turned over more than 60 pages of documents, but they were all letters from lawmakers asking about the younger Biden and responses from the Justice Department.

They made the same representation: they did an exhaustive search, uncovering 400 potentially responsive documents.”
However, the government eventually said it could.Neither confirm nor deny” the existence of any records. The response is one previously made by the government to avoid disclosing information that might harm national security. A judge first upheld the response in 1975 when the government said it “can neither confirm nor deny” the existence of records about the USNS Hughes Glomar Explorer, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request from Los Angeles Times.
“I don’t know how they can now take the position that Glomar is viable,” Evans said. “To me, it looks like the cat is out of the bag here after the disclosure of the existing documents.”
According to the report, the next hearing in Evans’ case is scheduled for this month.
