Former Vice President and rumored 2024 GOP presidential candidate Mike Pence has been cleared of any wrongdoing by the DOJ and the FBI for having classified documents in his home.
The former Veep had informed the National Archives in January that he had classified records in his Indiana home after both former President Donald Trump and President Biden dealt with their own classified documents drama.
From Fox News:
Multiple sources told Fox News that the Justice Department has closed the investigation into Pence’s possession of classified documents at his residence in Indiana.
The Justice Department sent a letter to Pence attorneys this week, saying that the FBI and DOJ have completed the investigation no criminal charges will be brought against the former vice president.
Pence informed Congress and the National Archives in January that he discovered documents with classified markings in his Carmel, Indiana, home on Jan. 16 from his time as vice president.
Pence told the National Archives on Jan. 18 of a small number of potentially classified documents found in two boxes. Another two boxes contained copies of vice presidential papers, and all of them were immediately put into a safe, according to the Pence team.
Pence is expected to make his White House run official during an Iowa event next week.
