The FBI found one more classified document in a consensual search of former Vice President Mike Pence's home in Indiana Friday following the discovery of several documents with classification markings last month, a spokesperson for the former vice president and sources familiar with the matter told ABC News.
After a five-hour search of Pence's home, federal agents recovered one document with classified markings and six additional pages without any markings, according a spokesperson for the former vice president.
The Department of Justice had been in contact with Pence's legal team to schedule the search and Pence's aides agreed to it.
The FBI declined to comment, referring questions to the Justice Department. The DOJ didn't immediately respond to comment.
The former vice president was not present for the search and is currently out of town, according to a source familiar with the search. However, a member of Pence's legal team was on site, the source said.
The search had been expected to take several hours, according to the source, who said that the FBI has been given unrestricted access to the premises.
Pence's spokesperson, Devin O'Malley, said in a statement after the search, "Following the discovery and disclosure of a small number of potentially classified documents that had inadvertently been transported to his home in Indiana, Vice President Pence and his legal team have fully cooperated with the appropriate authorities and agreed to a consensual search of his residence that took place today.
Pence has been subpoenaed by the special counsel overseeing probes into former President Donald Trump, multiple sources familiar with the matter told ABC News Thursday.
The subpoena from special counsel Jack Smith requests documents and testimony related to the failed attempt by Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 election, sources told ABC News, which culminated in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
Classified documents were found at Pence's Indiana home in mid-January and turned over to the FBI at the time, sources told ABC News. A lawyer for Pence conducted the search and found around a dozen documents marked as classified.
