FBI Searching Mike Pence’s Home After Discovery Of Classified Records, Reports Say


The FBI began searching former Vice President Mike Pence’s Indiana home Friday in cooperation with Pence’s legal team, multiple news outlets reported, just weeks after several classified records were found at the Pence residence—following searches at President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump’s private residences.

Key Facts

A private attorney for the former vice president is at the Carmel, Indiana, residence while the search is happening, CNN reported.

Pence is currently on the West Coast, after the birth of his second grandchild, a spokesperson told CNN.

Key Background

In mid-January a lawyer for Pence found about a dozen documents marked classified at Pence’s home. In a letter to the National Archives, Pence’s attorney said he was “unaware of the existence of the records.” The National Archives then referred the matter to the Justice Department. The documents were previously stored at Pence’s temporary home in Virginia before they were moved to his Indiana home, CNN reported.

This is a developing story and Forbes will continue to update it.
