The mystery surrounding former Vice President Joe Biden’s Senate records at the University of Delaware has been a subject of controversy for some time now.
Last month, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton announced that the Supreme Court of Delaware would hear arguments in their FOIA lawsuit for Biden’s hidden senate records currently stored at University of Delaware.
This announcement has rekindled interest in what may be contained in those records – and it seems that only one person knows: Joe Biden himself.
The University of Delaware refuses to release these documents until two years after Joe Biden retires from public office, claiming that many items are yet to be cataloged.
Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation initially filed a FOIA lawsuit in 2020 for all of Biden’s senate records – 1,850 boxes – but on Thursday, the Delaware Supreme Court sided with the University of Delaware and blocked their release.
NEW: Supreme Court of Delaware allows Biden operation to keep secret its deal to hide 1850 boxes of Biden's Senate records from the American people. Will Congress step up? https://t.co/vnqZlPWg6x

Fitton has called on Congress to get involved as he believes “the public has a significant interest in these documents” and it is unclear why they have been withheld from view thus far. He also suggested that if elected officials could not gain access to them then President Biden should simply make them available himself.
This seems unlikely as there is speculation that the papers may contain evidence relating to Tara Reade’s 1993 sexual assault complaint against him while he was serving as senator. No such record appears on his official Senate biography page or other public sources during his tenure in office.
Reade has repeatedly called on Biden to release the records from his 36 years as a senator, which are currently inaccessible to the public and are kept at the University of Delaware.
“The sketchy secrecy on the Biden Senate records and his deal with the University of Delaware need to end,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And President Biden could end the dispute by simply releasing the details about his Senate records. What is Biden hiding?”
If true, it would certainly explain why he does not want these documents released.
What further complicates matters is the fact that there were reports indicating then-Senator Joe Biden spoke with Vladimir Putin while serving as Senator; however there is no record or indication about what was discussed between them which leads us back into square one regarding any potential information being held within those 1,850 boxes at the University of Delaware.
It is undeniable that this information exists somewhere, but until we receive concrete details pertaining to their contents we will never know what secrets they hold—and more importantly—what they might tell us about Joe Biden’s past actions while serving as Senator.
