A lawyer for former Vice President Mike Pence discovered about a dozen documents marked as classified at Pence’s Indiana home last week, and he has turned those classified records over to the FBI, multiple sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
The FBI and the Justice Department’s National Security Division have launched a review of the documents and how they ended up in Pence’s house in Indiana.
The classified documents were discovered at Pence’s new home in Carmel, Indiana, by a lawyer for Pence in the wake of the revelations about classified material discovered in President Joe Biden’s private office and residence, the sources said. The discovery comes after Pence has repeatedly said he did not have any classified documents in his possession.
Do I think this is important, as it does not seem to involve any obstruction of justice or lying to the authorities? Absolutely not! But it does once again underline the fact that the election that inter many alia led to the overruling of Roe v. Wade was dominated by negative coverage of Hillary Clinton’s compliance with information security best practices, despite there being absolutely nothing unusual or interesting about them. Nobody responsible has ever attempted to affirmatively justify these choices, because it can’t be done.
In related news, Peter Baker has already been admitted to the Both Sides Do It Hall of Fame on the first ballot but he feels compelled to keep adding to his resume:
“What Trump and Biden isn’t the same, or even remotely similar really, but close enough that Democrats cannot criticize Trump” is the Platonic ideal of the form, 10/10, no notes.
