An FBI search of former US Vice President Mike Pence’s Indiana home Friday yielded one additional document bearing classified markings, a Pence spokesperson said, USA Today reported.
The five-hour, consensual search also resulted in the recovery of “six additional pages without classified markings that were not discovered in the initial review by the vice president’s counsel.”
“The vice president has directed his legal team to continue its cooperation with appropriate authorities and to be fully transparent through the conclusion of this matter,” Pence adviser Devin O’Malley said.
The Pence search followed the voluntary search of President Joe Biden’s former office in November; his home in Wilmington, Delaware, in December; and his Rehoboth Beach house; and the seizure of more than 100 classified documents at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate during the execution of a search warrant in August.
A handful of classified documents were found Jan. 16 at Pence’s home and placed in a secure safe until the FBI retrieved them, a Pence representative told the National Archives in a letter. Pence’s lawyer characterized the records as “a small number of bearing classified markings that were inadvertently transported to the personal home of the former vice president at the end of the last administration.”
