Biden on classified documents probe: ‘There’s no there there’

President Biden on Thursday downplayed a classified documents probe after materials were found in his home and a former office, telling reporters there’s “nothing there”

when asked if the investigation is complete. “I think you’re going to find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets, I’m following what the lawyers have told me they

want me to do. That’s exactly what we’re doing, there’s no there there,” Biden said. Biden reiterated much of what the White House has said consistently this week, which

was that the documents were immediately turned over to the National Archives and the Justice Department and that the president and his team are fully cooperating with the

investigation. “We found a handful of documents were filed in the wrong place,” he said, adding that he’s “looking forward to getting this resolved quickly.”

The president, however, much like his press secretary at times, criticized the reporter for asking the question, noting that he was in California and had just surveyed damage

from the recent severe storms in the state. The question followed short remarks from the president, alongside Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.), about plans for the federal government

to help California recover. “You know, I’ll answer the question, but here’s the deal,” Biden told the reporter. “What, quite frankly, bugs me is that we have a serious

problem here we’re talking about. We’re talking about what’s going on and the American people don’t quite understand why you don’t ask me questions about that.”
