Classified documents were found at the home of former Vice President Mike Pence in Indiana, his attorney told the National Archives in a letter, in the latest in a series of discoveries of classified information at private residences.
These are “apparently a small number of documents labeled confidential placed in boxes and inadvertently transported to the former vice president’s personal address at the end of the previous administration,” Pence’s attorney, Greg Jacob, said in a letter to which he was told. AP access.
Jacob said that Pence “hired independent legal counsel with experience in handling confidential documents to review documents found at his personal address when it became public that documents labeled confidential were found at the Wilmington residence of President Joe Biden.”
The Justice Department is already employing special prosecutors to investigate the presence of classified-labelled documents taken from former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate and from Pence’s home and former office in Washington. The department says about 300 documents are labeled confidential.
