Another prominent pol joins the doc party.
According to a report from The New York Post, former Vice President Mike Pence has turned over two boxes of records with classified markings found in his Indiana home; the FBI has them now.
Pence joins former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden in the unsecured classified docs craze sweeping the nation.
From The New York Post:
Pence, 63, said he found the records after the bombshell revelation earlier this month that President Biden stashed classified records dating to his vice presidency at a DC office and next to his classic car at his Delaware home — sparking a special counsel investigation.
The FBI took the records from Pence’s home on Jan. 19, while he was in Washington to attend the annual anti-abortion March for Life, his office disclosed Tuesday.
The Justice Department’s National Security Division and the FBI have launched a review of about a dozen documents that were in Pence’s possession, according to CNN, which first reported on the find.
Pence attorney Greg Jacob informed the National Archives of the discovery in a Jan. 18 letter provided to The Post — with the notification coming two days after Jacob said the documents were found.
“The additional records 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,” Jacob wrote to Archives official Kate McClure.
