President Joe Biden has made it clear that he has no regrets over the classified documents that were discovered at his private office and home in Delaware.
Biden, while speaking during a tour of California to assess the recent damage caused by storms, arrogantly claimed not to have any regrets on how he handled classified files during his time as vice president.

“I think you’re going to find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets,” Biden said when asked if he had any regrets about not revealing the documents before the discovery. “I’m following what the lawyers have told me they want me to do. It’s exactly what we’re doing. There’s no there, there.”
JUST IN: Biden says he has “no regrets” for stashing classified docs in his garage at his Delaware home.
Biden’s lawyers are sweating bullets right now.

Biden tried to play down the scandal by claiming that only a “handful of documents were filed in the wrong place.”
Biden also showed signs of frustration with reporters who asked him about the classified documents instead of the purpose of his visit to California.
“You know 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,” Biden retorted when asked about the classified files. “And the American people don’t quite understand why you don’t ask me questions about that.”
Biden previously criticized former President Donald Trump for allegedly holding on to classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago home. Biden, in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes,” said Trump was irresponsible for keeping the files.
“I thought, ‘What data was in there that may compromise sources and methods?’ Biden said. “By that, I mean names of people who helped. And it’s just totally irresponsible.”
However, Biden defended his decision to hold on to the files, claiming they were in a locked garage.
The documents discovery has raised security concerns after The New York Post revealed that Hunter Biden was living at the same home where the president stored the classified documents.
