Federal law enforcement officials are planning to search the home of former Vice President Mike Pence in the coming days after Pence’s legal team found classified material inside the residence last month, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.
Pence directed his team to search his home in Indiana and office at his political advocacy group, Advancing American Freedom (AAF), following revelations that classified documents had been discovered in Biden’s office at the Penn Biden Center, a Washington think tank affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania. No classified papers turned up in the search of Pence’s offices at AAF.
The former vice president informed the National Archives of the discovery of classified government documents at his home on January 18, and the National Archives then informed the FBI about the discovery. The FBI later collected the material found at Pence’s home.
