Former Vice President Mike Pence’s home was subject to an unrestricted search by federal authorities on Friday. The search, which lasted for five hours, was conducted in order to uncover any classified documents that may have been present. After the search concluded, Devin O’Malley, an adviser to Pence, revealed that one document with classified markings had been found, as well as six additional pages without such markings. O’Malley also stated that the Department of Justice had been fully transparent throughout the process.

The search was reportedly initiated after Pence discovered a “small number” of classified documents in his home in Carmel, Indiana. This news came one day after Pence was subpoenaed in a federal probe. It is believed that the search was agreed upon by both the Department of Justice and Pence’s legal team.
The discovery of classified documents in Pence’s home follows a similar incident involving President Joe Biden. Biden blamed the individuals who packed his offices for the documents being found and referred to them as “stray papers.”
The implications of these discoveries are still unknown, but it is clear that the Department of Justice is taking this matter seriously. Pence has directed his legal team to continue cooperating with the appropriate authorities and to remain transparent until the conclusion of this case. It is yet to be seen what will come of this investigation, but it is certain that the public will be updated as more information becomes available.
