White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre argued Wednesday that reporters have ample access to President Biden because they have the opportunity to shout questions at him, noting that Biden would not hold a press conference to address the growing questions to answer his secret documents.
“I currently have no preview of … any opportunities for the President to address this,” Jean-Pierre said when asked if Biden could hold a press conference to answer questions about classified documents.
“But as you all know and I know, questions used to be shouted, there’s a lot of options you all have with him, where he’s going … all your questions, and he’s had them for the last two weeks,” she said.

When the reporter argued that Biden ignored several questions called out by reporters, Jean-Pierre insisted he reacted.
“No, he answered,” she said. “Actually, when he was in California … he asked a question. When he was in Mexico City, he was asked, and he asked a question… The day after, he asked a question.”
“So I’m just saying it’s not like he didn’t bring that up at all,” she said. “He did. I just don’t have anything to preview at a potential … press conference or something on an occasion you all need to hear from him direct.”

“But again, he’s been asked a question a couple of times and he’s answered it. And you all heard about it from him,” she continued.
