Around a dozen classified documents were found last week at the Indiana home of former Vice President Mike Pence, CNN reported Tuesday.
The report, which cited multiple sources familiar with the matter, said the FBI and the Justice Department’s National Security Division have launched a review of the documents, which a lawyer for Pence turned over to the FBI, and how they ended up in the former vice president’s home.
A spokesman for the former vice president did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The report comes amid a mushrooming controversy over President Biden’s handling of classified material — with sensitive items dating back to his time as a senator and vice president found in recent months at his home in Wilmington, Del., and a vacant office he used at a DC think tank.
Under the federal Presidential Records Act, presidential and vice presidential records must be turned over to the National Archives at the end of each administration.
