image for First on CNN: Classified documents found at Pence’s Indiana home

The classified documents were discovered at Pence’s new home in Carmel, Indiana, by a lawyer for Pence in the wake of the revelations about classified material discovered in President Joe Biden’s private office and residence, the sources said.

The discovery comes after Pence has repeatedly said he did not have any classified documents in his possession.

“Vice President Pence was unaware of the existence of sensitive or classified documents at his personal residence,” Jacob wrote.

Once the classified documents were discovered, the sources said they were placed inside a safe located in the house.

In November, Pence was asked by ABC News at his Indiana home whether he had taken any classified documents from the White House.

The search was conducted after Biden’s lawyers discovered classified material in Wilmington following the initial discovery of classified documents at Biden’s private think office in November.

House Oversight Chairman James Comer, a Kentucky Republican who is investigating Biden’s classified documents, said in a statement that Pence reached out to him about the classified documents found at his home. »
