The FBI showed up to former Vice President Mike Pence’s home in Indiana on Friday to search for classified materials after Pence’s legal team found classified documents inside the home last month.

Pence directed his team last month to search his home in Indiana and his office at his political advocacy group, Advancing American Freedom (AAF), following revelations that classified documents had been discovered in Biden’s office at the Penn Biden Center, a Washington think tank affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania. No classified papers turned up in the search of Pence’s offices at AAF.

The former vice president informed the National Archives of the discovery of classified government documents at his home in January, and the National Archives then informed the FBI about the discovery. The FBI later collected the material found at Pence’s home.

Pence was recently subpoenaed by special counsel Jack Smith in his criminal investigations into the classified documents found at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and the investigation related to alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

ABC News reported on Thursday that the subpoena comes after “months of negotiations between federal prosecutors and Pence’s legal team.” The New York Times subsequently reported that the subpoena is related to Trump’s effort to stay in office after he lost the 2020 presidential election.

The Justice Department also has an active criminal investigation President Joe Biden over his handling of classified material.

Classified documents connected with Biden were first found in his former private office at the Penn Biden Center, a think tank in Washington, D.C., on November 2, less than a week before the 2022 midterm elections. Since then, Biden’s attorneys have located more classified documents at Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware, on multiple occasions: an unspecified number found in the garage on December 20, one document found in Biden’s study on January 11, and five more found in the study on January 12.

Federal officials confirmed last month that they found more classified material during a 13-hour FBI search of Biden’s home on January 20.

CNN reported that while Biden’s team claimed it was cooperative in dealing with the Department of Justice, federal investigators were prepared to get a search warrant if Biden did not consent to being searched.

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed former U.S. Attorney Robert Hur — who served during the Trump administration — to serve as special counsel in the investigation after the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois John Lausch, who was assigned to do an initial review of the case, recommended to Garland that a special counsel be appointed.
