Kevin Evans sued the DOJ in March after allegedly failing to comply with his request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for records relating to "any relationship, communication, gift(s), and/or remuneration in any form" between the Bidens' and China, Russia, or Ukraine, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
Lawyers for the federal government had admitted in court to having at least 400 pages of "potentially responsive" documents, but are now claiming that they can "neither confirm nor deny" the existence of the documents in question.
"They eventually produced about 60 pages of documents, but they're all letters from senators and congressmen asking about Hunter, and letters from DOJ back," Evans said.
"Then towards the end of last year they said, 'Well we have these 400 pages of potentially responsive documents, we need to review them,'" Evans was told by lawyers, a similar statement to the one the government repeated in court.
"In March I filed suit, and before Magistrate Judge Michael Hegarty they made the same representation: they've done a thorough search, they've uncovered 400 potentially responsive documents," Evans said.
After stalling for a few months, the Government then claimed that they could "neither confirm nor deny" their existence.
Evans initially filed a FOIA request for the documents after the story of Hunter Biden's shady overseas dealings broke in October 2020, a story that was subsequently censored by big tech.
"I’m quite confident that they will move for summary judgment on the privacy exemptions under FOIA in an effort to avoid having to produce these documents," Evans said, "but I don’t think they should in this instance, particularly when they've disclosed and put on the record that potentially responsive documents exist."
The next status hearing in the case is scheduled for January 9.
