The FBI is reportedly gearing up to search former Vice President Mike Pence’s Indiana home for classified documents, NBC News reported Monday, citing three law enforcement officials.
The planned search comes after a “small number” of classified documents were found at Pence’s Indiana residence last month.
Pence’s lawyer, Greg Jacob, said. said the documents were “inadvertently boxed and transported” to Pence’s home at the end of the Trump administration and that the former vice president “was unaware of the existence of sensitive or classified documents at his personal residence.”
The development comes after the FBI searched Biden’s house in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, last week. No classified documents were found during the FBI’s search, Biden’s personal lawyer, Bob Bauer, said.
The discovery of documents at Biden and Pence’s homes comes amid the DOJ’s investigation of former President Donald Trump after classified documents were found at his Mar-a-Lago estate in August and found more than 100 classified documents, including some marked top secret. In December, two more documents with classified markings were found at a Florida storage facility not far from Mar-a-Lago and turned over to the FBI.
