The FBI discovered a classified document in former Vice President Mike Pence’s Indiana home on Friday, Pence spokesman Devin O’Malley revealed.

After Pence agreed to have his home searched, the FBI found one document with classified markings and six “additional pages without such markings that were not discovered in the initial review by the vice president’s counsel,” O’Malley stated, according to CNN.

Classified documents found in Pence home earlier this year

This is not the first classified document to be discovered at the former vice president’s house.

Last month, Pence’s lawyers turned over a dozen classified documents from Pence’s home to the FBI, the Deseret News reported.

Pence had instructed his lawyers to search for any classified documents after the Biden administration revealed that classified documents were found in President Joe Biden’s home in Wilmington, Delaware.
