Today it was revealed that Joe Biden illegally kept more classified documents in improper locations, the most recent being a trove of materials retrieved from the garage of his Delaware beach home where taxpayers are currently erecting a $500,000 wall.
On the heels of the news that Biden improperly handled more materials – news first broke revealing he kept sensitive documents earlier this week – the 80-year-old president was confronted by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy.
“Classified material next to your Corvette?” Doocy asked, “What were you thinking?”
Biden defended himself by declaring that “My Corvette’s in a locked garage” and thus “it’s not like it’s on the street.”
He also stressed that he is cooperating with the federal government’s “review” into his handling of classified documents when he was Vice President, though he neglected to note the dissimilarity between this “review” and the federal investigation into his predecessor, Donald Trump, over similar documents.
It has been confirmed that the documents date to Biden’s time as Vice President under Barack Obama, during which time Biden was heavily involved in the Ukrainian civil war.

While the contents of Biden’s secret document stashes remain unclear, it has been speculated by far right publications that they contained documents related to China and Ukraine.
Though Biden and his allies have projected confidence while his handling of classified materials is investigated by his government agencies, Republicans in Congress have suggested they will provide oversight.
Today, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy told the press, “I think Congress has to investigate this” as Biden’s latest secret cache of sensitive documents became known.
“Here’s an individual that’s been in office for more than 40 years, here’s an individual that sat on ’60 Minutes’ that was so concerned about President Trump’s documents,” said McCarthy.
“Now we find, just as a vice president, keeping it for years, out in the open, in different locations.”
