Things just keep getting more confusing.
It now appears that former Vice President Mike Pence also had classified documents in Indiana home which were discovered last week according to his lawyer.
According to the Associated Press, Pence’s attorney informed the National Archives that via a letter that the former Vice President had documents with classified marking as well on his property.
Pence’s lawyer explained that there “appear to be a small number of documents bearing classified markings that were inadvertently boxed and transported to the personal home of the former vice president at the end of the last administration.”
His lawyer went on to say that Pence “engaged outside counsel, with experience in handling classified documents, to review records stored in his personal home after it became public that documents with classified markings were found in President Joe Biden’s Wilmington residence.”
President Biden’s DOJ is already investigating documents which were found in former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home as well as documents in President Biden’s Delaware home and university office.
Pence’s lawyer explained that Pence “was unaware of the existence of sensitive or classified documents at his personal residence” and “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.”
It is unclear what exactly will transpire now that three men: Donald Trump, Joe Biden and Mike Pence have been found with classified documents. However, this raises the question if even more top leaders such as Kamala Harris, Barack Obama, the Clinton family, and the Bush family may also have classified documents of their very own.
