The Justice Department is in contact with attorneys for former Vice President Mike Pence about planning a possible search of his Indiana home, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.
Discussions come after classified documents were found in Pence’s home in Indiana and turned over to the FBI for examination. An attorney for Pence searched Pence’s Indiana home last week and found the documents.
The search was done proactively and following reports that classified documents from before he was president were found in Joe Biden’s house and former office at the Penn Biden Center.
The Wall Street Journal first reported that the Justice Department and Pence’s legal team were in discussions about planning a search.
