Classified Documents Found At Mike Pence’s Home


NEW YORK (AP) — Documents with labeled markings had been found in former Vice President Mike Pence‘s Indiana Home final week, in response to his lawyer.

“The additional records appear to be a small number of documents bearing classified markings that were inadvertently boxed and transported to the personal home of the former Vice President at the end of the last Administration,” Pence’s lawyer, Greg Jacob, told the National Archives in a letter last week.

He said that “Pence was unaware of the existence of sensitive or classified documents at his personal residence” and that he “understands the excessive significance of defending delicate and labeled data and stands prepared and prepared to cooperate absolutely with the National Archives and any applicable inquiry.”

A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment Tuesday, and a lawyer for Pence did not immediately respond to an email seeking further elaboration.

Pence informed the Associated Press in August that he didn’t take any labeled data with him when he left workplace.

Asked directly if he had retained any classified information upon leaving office, he said, “No, not to my knowledge.”
