“Pence asked his lawyer to conduct the search of his home out of an abundance of caution, and the attorney began going through four boxes stored at Pence’s house last week, finding a small number of documents with classified markings.”
Why. Why do they do this? Why.
CNN reported that Mike Pence’s lawyer found classified documents in the former vice president’s Indiana home:
The FBI and the Justice Department’s National Security Division have launched a review of the documents and how they ended up in Pence’s house in Indiana.
The classified documents were discovered at Pence’s new home in Carmel, Indiana, by a lawyer for Pence in the wake of the revelations about classified material discovered in President Joe Biden’s private office and residence, the sources said. The discovery comes after Pence has repeatedly said he did not have any classified documents in his possession.
It is not yet clear what the documents are related to or their level of sensitivity or classification. Pence’s team plans to notify Congress on Tuesday.

“Vice President Pence was unaware of the existence of sensitive or classified documents at his personal residence,” wrote Greg Jacob, Pence’s designated representative to the National Archive.
It seems everyone does this. Why must they all do this?
Pence had the right idea to ask his lawyer to look through his home. I wonder if Cheney, Bush, Obama, Gore, and Clinton will do the same.
It also shows that Trump was right: The FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago was unnecessary and inappropriate.
The FBI flashed their badges and probably acted like Andy’s Burt Macklin persona (watch Parks and Rec!), raiding and ruining Trump’s property.
Finding documents at Pence’s house weakens the government’s argument against Trump. It also weakens any argument against the ones found with Biden.
I know I’m not the only one who thinks the Democrats wanted to use the classified documents in Biden’s possession to kick him out in 2024 or maybe even sooner.
