FBI Searches Mike Pence’s Home For Classified Documents


The FBI on Friday searched Mike Pence’s Indiana home for classified documents, a source told NBC News.


The search comes after Pence was subpoenaed by Jack Smith, the current special investigator probing the alleged classified documents once in President Trump’s possession.

Previously, the FBI announced that it would be conducting a search of the former VP’s home for classified documents relating to the investigation.

BREAKING: Scandal Hits Mike Pence!

NBC News shared details:

The move comes weeks after Pence reported finding a “small number” of classified documents in his home in Carmel and a day after it was revealed he had been subpoenaed in a separate federal probe — the special counsel's investigation into former President Donald Trump’s effort to stay in office after the 2020 election and role in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

The date of Friday’s search was negotiated between Pence’s team and the Justice Department, the official said.

A Justice Department official said the search was a “consent” search agreed upon by the department and Pence's lawyers, and there were no search warrants issued in advance. All the ground rules for the search were stipulated to during negotiations between the Justice Department and the Pence team, the official said.

The classified documents were found at Pence's house last month after the discovery of Obama-era classified documents in the possession of former Vice President Joe Biden, and also following an FBI search of Trump's home after his lawyers claimed he'd returned all documents with classified markings from the White House.

According to CNN, federal officials will also search Pence's D.C. office.

Per CNN:

Pence is currently on the West Coast with his family after his daughter had a baby, according to his spokesperson. A private attorney for Pence is at the Indiana house while the search is underway, the spokesperson added.

The FBI is also expected to search Pence’s office in Washington, DC, in the coming days, sources told CNN.
