Today, in his fullest comments since the appointment of a special counsel last week to investigate how classified documents made their way to his home and office after he left the vice presidency, President Biden said Thursday he has “no regrets” about how the documents discovery was disclosed.

“I think you’re going to find there’s nothing there,” he said after expressing confidence the matter would be cleared.

He made the remarks during a visit to parts of California that have been damaged by floods and landslides. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), Sen. Alex Padilla (D-Calif.) and FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell joined Biden aboard Marine One for an aerial tour of the impacted regions.

If anybody doubts the climate is changing, they must have been asleep for the last couple of years,” the president said in a speech following the tour.
