(CBrief) – President Joe Biden answered a reporter’s question on Thursday on newly discovered classified documents found in his Wilmington, Delaware, garage — and his answer is a doozy.
Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy nailed the president over his careless handling of classified documents.
“Classified materials next to your Corvette?! What were you thinking?” he said.
“My Corvette’s in a locked garage so it’s not like it’s sitting on the street,” the president said.
“So the material was in a locked garage?” the reporter said.
“Yes— as well as my Corvette,” the president said.
“As I said earlier this week, people know I take classified documents and classified materials seriously,” he said. “I also said we’re cooperating fully and completely with the Justice Department’s review. As part of that process, my lawyers reviewed other places where documents of — from my time as vice president were stored, and they finished the review last night. They discovered a small number of documents with classified markings in storage areas, in file cabinets in my home and my personal library.”
