Pence found secret documents at his home while he was Vice President

Mike Pence, who was the Vice President of the United States during Donald Trump’s government (2017-2021), has found classified documents at his residence in the state of Indiana, local media reported on Tuesday.

Pence discovered those documents on January 16 and one of his lawyers, Greg Jacobs, notified Congress and the National Archives, the institution that holds the sensitive and classified documents.

As Pence’s lawyer explained to the National Archives, the documents were mistakenly at the former vice president’s home in Indiana.

Specifically, a “small number” of classified documents were “packaged and transported” from the White House to the former vice president’s home without his knowledge.

In fact, as the lawyer insisted, Pence “was not aware of the existence of classified or sensitive documents in his private residence.”

Pence, who stood by Trump for most of his presidency, distanced himself from him after his 2021 attack on the Capitol and pressure from the president to nullify Democrat Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election .

Pence is now emerging as a contender for the Republican presidential nomination and has published an autobiography titled “So Help Me God”.

Following the revelations about Biden, Pence’s team at the conservative think tank “Advancing American Freedom” decided to search the former vice president’s home and his office in Indiana, according to the Fox network.

This month, it was revealed that Biden’s team had received sensitive and classified documents from the time when he was Barack Obama’s vice president (2009-2017) and when he was a senator (1973-2009).

The documents were discovered at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, and his private office at the Penn Biden Center think tank in Washington.

The Biden government has tried to distance itself from the case of classified documents found by the FBI at Trump’s mansion in Mar-a-Lago (Florida).

Biden’s documents were found by his own attorneys and turned over to authorities, unlike what happened at Mar-a-Lago, where Justice Department intervention was required to recover the papers.
