Classified Documents Found INSIDE Mike Pence’s Indiana Home

Last week, the lawyer for former Vice President Mike Pence came across roughly a dozen documents classified as “secret” at Pence’s residence in Indiana. In response, he relinquished said documents to the FBI, as reported by On The Inside from several individuals with knowledge of the circumstances.

On Tuesday January 24, 2023, Federal authorities in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) National Security Division have began an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the classified paperwork uncovered at Vice President Mike Pence’s home in Carmel, Indiana. The documents were detected by Pence’s lawyer after the news that classified documents were found in President Joe Biden’s office and home broke out. Pence has firmly denied ever having any confidential documents on him.

Out of caution, Vice President Mike Pence’s attorney searched through four boxes stored in his house last week and discovered a few documents with classified markings. The attorney then notified the National Archives, which subsequently alerted the Justice Department. Later that day, the FBI asked to retrieve the classified documents from Pence’s residence, to which he agreed. Consequently, several agents from the FBI field office in Indianapolis acquired the marked documents.

In a letter acquired by On The Inside, Greg Jacob, who works for the National Archives and is the representative to Vice President Pence, informed them that a “limited number of papers which have confidential markings” had mistakenly been packed and sent to the VP’s home.

“Vice President Pence was unaware of the existence of sensitive or classified documents at his personal residence,” Jacob wrote. “Vice President Pence understands the high importance of protecting sensitive and classified information and stands ready and willing to cooperate fully with the National Archives and any appropriate inquiry.”

Our sources revealed that the boxes of classified material were transported from Pence’s temporary residence in Virginia to his home in Indiana. The boxes were sealed with tape, making it unlikely that they had been opened since packing.
