The Justice Department is speaking with Pence’s legal representatives to schedule the investigation
The federal police are going to search the house of former US Vice President Mike Pence looking for classified documents, the Wall Street Journal writes citing sources with knowledge of the case.
The Justice Department is speaking with Pence’s legal representatives to schedule the investigation. Pence’s lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment for this story.
According to CNN, the office of the former vice president is also to be searched.
In January, the former vice president’s lawyer, Greg Jacobs, revealed that classified documents were found at his home in Indiana and that he turned them over to the FBI. He said it was a “small number of documents which could potentially contain sensitive or confidential information”.
Citing a source close to Pence, the newspaper says his legal advisers believe the previous investigation was exhaustive and do not believe there are any other classified documents.
Forgotten, classified documents have also been found in the homes of former President Donald Trump and current President Joe Biden, from when he was Barack Obama’s vice president. Both are being investigated by the Justice Department for mishandling classified material.
On Wednesday, FBI agents searched Biden’s vacation home in Delaware, but found no classified documents.
