(CARMEL, IN) — An attorney to former Vice President Mike Pence reportedly discovered a “small number” of classified documents at his Indiana home last week and turned them into the FBI.

The classified material was found Jan. 16 in response to a search “out of an abundance of caution” by the FBI, following the retrieval of classified documents from President Biden’s home, according to reports.

“I write to request your assistance with collecting and transferring to the custody of the National Archives an additional set of Vice Presidential records,” Gregory Jacob, Pence’s attorney, wrote to the National Archives Sunday. “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.”

FBI agents were discharged to Pence’s house by the Justice Department last Thursday at 9:30 p.m., while Pence attended the March for Life rally in Washington, D.C.

Agents retrieved a “small number” of documents that were stored in a safe.

The report comes after the bombshell controversy over President Biden’s handling and stash of classified material dating back to his time as vice president, which were first seized on Nov. 2 from his Delaware home and private D.C. office.
