(DailyVantage.com) – The DOJ on Friday seized one additional classified document from former Vice President Mike Pence’s Indiana home.
This comes just weeks after the DOJ discovered roughly a dozen classified documents from the same residence.
According to the DOJ, Pence and his team have been fully cooperative with the multiple searches of his home.
Pence representative Greg Jacob stated that “counsel identified a small number of documents that could potentially contain sensitive or classified information interspersed throughout the records” in response to the initial discovery of documents in late January.
As we know now, the DOJ did not retrieve every potentially classified document last month. The document spotted on Friday was reported to contain classified markings and “six additional pages without such markings that were not discovered in the initial review by the vice president’s counsel.”
Pence, however, is not alone when it comes to possession of classified documents. Former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence was searched (or “raided”, depending on who you ask) back in January. Since Trump left office, NARA (the National Archives and Records Administration”) has recovered 300 classified documents from when he was president.
More recently, President Biden was found to be in possession of classified documents. Documents were discovered in his Delaware home, his garage (which Biden assured Fox News’s Peter Doocy were secured since they were in a safe spot next to his corvette), and in his rather obscure Penn Biden think tank in Washington D.C.
While the Trump documents were by far the most plentiful, Biden and Pence aren’t off the hook either.
Pence, it ought not to be overlooked, is still considering a presidential bid, wherein he would be going face to face against his former boss, Donalt Trump. Whether or not Pence’s possession of classified materials impacts his potential candidacy is to be determined.
