President Biden confirmed to Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy Thursday that he kept classified documents next to his corvette.
“Classified material next to your Corvette — what were you thinking?” Doocy asked the president.
“Let me, I’m going to get a chance to speak on all of this, God willing, soon, but as I said earlier this week, people — and by the way, my Corvette’s in a locked garage, okay, so it’s not like they’re sitting out in the street,” Biden said in response.
“Kept in a locked garage?” Doocy asked.
“Yes, as well as my corvette,” Biden said, before reading his notes.

Documents with classified markings from Biden’s time as vice president were found at his home in Wilmington, Delaware, the White House said Thursday, days after it was disclosed that sensitive documents were also found at the office of his former Washington institute.
Richard Sauber, a special counsel to the president, said after the initial documents were found by Biden’s personal lawyers, they examined other locations where records might have been shipped after Biden left the vice presidency in 2017.
Sauber said a “small number” of documents with classified markings were found in a storage space in Biden’s garage in Wilmington, with one document being located in an adjacent room. No documents were found in the Bidens’ other Delaware home, in Rehoboth Beach.
The White House did not say when the subsequent search began or when the additional documents were found, only that the search was completed on Wednesday evening.
Sauber said the Department of Justice was “immediately notified” after the documents were located and that department lawyers took custody of the records.
Regardless of the Justice Department review, the revelation that Biden potentially mishandled classified or presidential records is proving to be a political headache for Biden, who called former President Donald Trump “irresponsible” for keeping hundreds of such records at his private club in Florida.
Earlier this week, the White House confirmed that the department was reviewing “a small number of documents with classified markings” found at the Washington office.
Biden’s lawyers had discovered the material at the offices of the Penn Biden Center and then immediately called the National Archives about the discovery, the White House said. Biden kept an office there after he left the vice presidency in 2017 until shortly before he launched his Democratic presidential campaign in 2019.
The revelation that additional classified documents were uncovered by Biden’s team came hours after White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dodged questions about Biden’s handling of classified information and the West Wing’s management of the discovery.
She had said Wednesday that the White House was committed to handling the matter in the “right way,” pointing to Biden’s personal attorneys’ immediate notification of the National Archives. Continue reading at Newsmax.

Joe Biden just admitted that he was holding classified documents in his Delaware garage next to his corvette.
This is VERY troubling given the fact that the Biden WH refuses to release the visitors log from his Delaware home.
Who has had access to these documents?
