FBI comes up empty after searching Pence group's office for sensitive documents

February 18, 2023

If you thought the great search for classified documents in every home, office, and building even remotely connected to a number of former presidents and vice presidents, think again. 

According to The Hill, former Vice President Mike Pence, one of the latest victims of the great paper search, appears clean and clear after the FBI's latest search.

On Friday, a search was conducted at the former offices of former political advocacy group.

Justice Department investigators reportedly carried out the search at Pence's Advancing American Freedom’s office in Washington, D.C.

No classified documents found

All that was reportedly taken from the offices was "approximately three previously redacted documents," a statement read.

“The vice president has consistently cooperated with appropriate authorities, has been fully transparent, and looks forward to the imminent conclusion of this matter," said Pence adviser Devin O’Malley in a statement on the latest search, which came in the wake of a previous search at his residence.

That search, at his Indiana residence, did turn up one additional classified document.

The Hill noted:

Friday’s search offered federal agents unrestricted access to the offices of Advancing American Freedom. The search took “several hours,” and a member of Pence’s legal team was present throughout.

Home searched

Pence's Indiana residence was reportedly searched last week again "out of an abundance of caution," even after the former vice president's lawyer, Greg Jacob, has been fully transparent and previously notified the National Archives on Jan. 18 that some classified docs had been discovered in his home.

That discovery came as the classified documents scandal involving President Joe Biden dominated the airwaves.

While former President Donald Trump's private residence was the subject of an actual FBI raid for the same reasons, other seem to have gotten a much better deal.

It's still unclear what, if anything, Biden's DOJ will do about the mountains of classified documents discovered at his former offices and private residence -- documents which, unlike Trump, he did not have the power to declassify as a vice president.
