With the Justice Department already having tapped two special counsels for an investigation into both former President Donald Trump as well as President Joe Biden for their handling of classified documents, now, another name joins that list as classified documents have been found in the home of former Vice President Mike Pence.

The discovery comes as Pence’s lawyer is reported to have found roughly a dozen documents marked as classified in his Camel, Indiana home last week. These documents date back to his time as Vice President from 2016 up until 2020.

According to CNN. A search of Pence’s Indiana home, as well as his office at Advancing American Freedom. a political advocacy group, have already been conducted.

There were files not believed to be classified or sensitive information retrieved from Pence’s home by the FBI. Nothing with any classified markings were found at his Advancing American Freedom office.

Pence has turned over the documents since their discovery on January 16, and informed the National Archives about the discovery on January 18. As per standard procedure, the National Archives has informed the FBI.

On January 19th, after Pence had put the classified documents into a safe, they were retrieved from his home.

Today, the former Vice President informed Congress about the discovery of classified documents from last week.

This is still a developing story, American Action News will provide updates when they’re made available.


  1. The issue may be with the National Archives. What is their procedure for collecting and following documents? Do they lend out documents and not do any follow-up (even a library does this!)? Maybe they need a better system!!

  2. Okay. Now do Obama, Bush, Cheney, Clinton, Gore and every representive and senator in Congress, especially Schiff and those on the intelligence oversight committee, while we’re at it.

  3. Seems like it’s high time Bill Barr’s house gets the SWAT Team treatment so the American people can know what classified documents he’s been mis-handling.

  4. Seems to be a major problem with the Politicians thinking they are above the law and totally
    disregard Security procedures concerning Classified documents. Apparently Washington idiots need a lesson in security and not about their own views of self importance. Perhaps a spell in Jail for violating security procedures and removal from office would improve their respect for the security of our Nation

  5. REpublican or DEMONcrap as VP they had no business having classified documents in their position outside of approved and authorized safe locations. In no case did they have the authority to declassify any document which is the perogative of the issuing authority or the President.

  6. Being these boxes were packed up by aids and sealed and were still sealed when they were recovered, demonstrates Pence had no idea what was there.
