(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) An embittered President Joe Biden on Thursday scolded reporters who were too dense and dumb to understand why he illegally removed, transferred and stored classified documents at unsecured and highly-suspect locations.
During a trip to California to inspect storm damage, and conveniently flee the hurricane-grade scandal brewing in the D.C. swamp, Biden snapped and snarled at reporters for bothering him about the classified documents he stashed from his stint as vice president.
“What quite frankly bugs me is that we have a serious problem here we’re talking about,” Biden rebuked a reporter who asked about the document scandal, as the embattled president tried to refocus on the California storm damage. “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.”
When the reporter instead asked Biden if he “had any regrets that you did not reveal the existence of the documents back in November before the midterms,” a beleaguered Biden babbled out a lecture and another scolding.
“Hang on, OK? Look, as we found — we found a handful of documents that were failed, were filed in the wrong place,” he reasoned. “We immediately turned them over to the [National] Archives and the Justice Department. We’re fully cooperating and looking forward to getting this resolved quickly.”
California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, who has played coy about his intentions to launch a 2024 presidential bid, lurked behind Biden, as the president continued equivocating before pounding the podium and abruptly ending the show.
“I think you’re gonna find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets,” Biden said about his illegally obtained classified documents. “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. Thank you.”

Biden’s “no regrets” defiance comes as U.S. House Republicans are conducting multiple investigations into his stashing reams of illegally possessed classified materials in suspect locations. Those include, to date, the Penn Biden Center, which has deep financial ties to mysterious China donors, and the garage of his vacation home, which was easily accessed by his crack-addict son, Hunter, who was heavily involved with myriad shady foreign and domestic business dealings.
Despite mounting criticism over the document scandal, including even in some rare and fleeting slips from a typically compliant mainstream media, Biden reportedly remains on track to officially announce his 2024 campaign shortly after his Feb. 7 State of the Union address.
