Classified documents found at former VP Pence’s home
Former Vice President Mike Pence “engaged outside counsel” with experience in handling classified documents to review records stored at his Indiana home, according to a letter his lawyer, Greg Jacob, wrote to the National Archives. Those outside experts identified a small number of documents containing classified or sensitive information. Pence locked the documents in a safe before notifying the National Archives and handing them off to the FBI, according to Jacob’s letter. Pence had the records reviewed after Joe Biden received criticism for having classified documents at his home, and after the FBI raided documents from Former President Trump’s Florida estate last year.
What does this mean? Pence had said in August that he hadn’t taken any classified information home from his time as vice president. In January, he described how he and his staff had gone through a “very careful process” with attorneys to turn over classified documents. A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment Tuesday.
