President Joe Biden on Thursday appeared to defend his having allegedly stored classified materials in his home garage, noting that the garage in question is "locked." 

Biden was asked by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy "what [he was] thinking" keeping the sensitive materials in his Delaware home. The White House on Thursday confirmed the veracity of those documents, which were turned over to the Department of Justice by Biden's legal team this week. 

"I'm going get a chance to speak on all this, God willing, soon," Biden responded to Doocy, "but as I said earlier this week—and by the way, my Corvette's in a locked garage," he added. "Okay? So it's not like they're sitting out in the street."

“So it was in a locked garage?” Doocy said, to which Biden responded: "Yes, as well as my Corvette."

Controversy has swirled around the Democratic president this week as two batches of classified materials connected to him have been located in unsecured locations—one in the Delaware garage and one at his former office at the University of Pennsylvania. 

Biden on Thursday said the White House is "cooperating fully and completely with the Justice Department’s review."
