FBI Searches Mike Pence’s Home, Finds Another Classified Document

February 10, 2023

The FBI on Friday uncovered one document marked classified, according to a Pence spokesman, after agents conducted a search of former Vice President Pence’s Indiana home on Friday.

The DOJ had been in contact with Pence’s legal team ahead of Friday’s search, and Pence’s aides agreed to it amid the DOJ’s investigation into classified documents discovered on Pence’s property, and at the properties of President Biden and former President Trump.

Lawyers for Pence discovered about a dozen documents marked classified at his Carmel, Indiana home last month, prompting an immediate review by the DOJ.

That revelation came in the wake of discoveries of classified materials at President Biden’s  private office and residence. Biden voluntarily agreed to an FBI search of his home in Wilmington, DE, which uncovered six items in addition to the materials previously found  at the residence and his private office. A search earlier this month of Biden’s vacation house in Rehoboth Beach turned up no additional documents marked classified.

There have so far been no public reports of the FBI searching former President Trump’s additional properties—including Manhattan and Bedminster, New Jersey—after an August FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago residence uncovered hundreds of documents marked classified.

The search of Pence’s home on Friday came just hours after reports broke that the former Vice President had been subpoenaed by Special Counsel Jack Smith, who’s been overseeing not just the investigation into the classified documents at Mar-a-Lago but also Trump’s role in the deadly January 6, 2021 insurrection and attempt to overturn the 2020 Presidential election.

Merrick Garland, who appointed Smith, has also appointed former U.S. Attorney Robert Hur as special counsel to investigate Biden’s misplacement of classified documents.

The FBI referred questions regarding the search of Pence’s home Friday to the DOJ, which declined to comment.
