In January 2023, President Biden addressed the situation, defending the security of the discovered documents.

He said, “I’m going to get the chance to speak on all of this, God willing it’ll be soon, but I said earlier this week — and by the way my Corvette is in a locked garage. It’s not like it’s sitting out in the street”.

This comment aimed to reassure the public about the precautions taken to safeguard sensitive information.
