Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for Secret Service records on Hunter Biden’s travel and security costs. (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security (No. 1:22-cv-02097)).
The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after United States Secret Service (a component of DHS) failed to respond adequately to three separate FOIA requests in March and April 2022 for:
All records concerning the use of security and/or other services to Hunter Biden and any companions; and
All records concerning the use of U.S. Government funds to provide security and/or any other services to Hunter Biden and any companions.
“The Secret Service is violating FOIA law by slow-rolling and hiding Hunter Biden records,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “What is the Secret Service trying to hide about Hunter Biden?”
Hunter Biden took 411 separate domestic and international flights, including to 29 different foreign countries. He visited China five times.
