White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said it was time to "move on" after being grilled over more classified documents found at President Joe Biden's Delaware home.
Jean-Pierre struggled to respond to the new documents as she had previously stated the search for classified materials was complete.

"Last week, you told us that we could all assume, that the American people could assume, the searches were complete and all the documents had been recovered," a reporter began. "On Saturday, the White House Counsel's Office said that five additional classified documents had been found. Is it safe to assume now that all the documents have been recovered … or are more searches underway?"
"We have addressed multiple questions from here. Multiple questions have been answered by the president," Jean-Pierre responded. "I'm just going to continue to be prudent here. I'm going to let this ongoing review that is happening, this legal process that is happening, and let that process continue under the special counsel."

The press secretary was visibly frustrated over the ongoing questions about the classified documents, seeking to shut down the discussion.
"Guys, you can ask me this 100 times, 200 times, if you wish, I'm going to keep saying the same thing, I hear your question, it's been asked, it's been answered!" she said.
Last week, Jean-Pierre mentioned the completed investigation that revealed that the president had classified documents in his Penn Center office and in his Delaware garage from his years as vice president.
On Saturday, another batch of classified material was found inside the president's home, leading to more controversy over the investigation.
The press secretary was also under scrutiny prior to this week's outbursts, with many media members concerned over her failure to come to briefings prepared and unwilling to answer basic questions.
The latest showing won't help alleviate concerns, with the president now facing a special counsel over the findings of his classified documents.
