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.
