Former President Donald Trump fired off a short but pointed statement on Tuesday, after the news broke that his former vice president, Mike Pence, had also found documents in his home that had “classified markings.”

Pence reportedly found the documents in two small boxes in his home on January 16. As soon as the classified documents were found in Pence’s home in Carmel, Indiana, they were immediately put in a safe, and Pence attorney Greg Jacob notified Acting Director Kate Dillon McClure of the White House Liaison Division National Archives and Records Administration.

The FBI then retrieved the documents from Pence’s home on Thursday evening, Jan. 19, while Pence was in Washington, D.C. for the March for Life event.

In a statement posted to his Truth Social account just after noon on Tuesday, Trump defended Pence.

He wrote, “Mike Pence is an innocent man. He never did anything knowingly dishonest in his life. Leave him alone!!!”

Meanwhile, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) tweeted, “I don’t believe there were ‘sinister motives’ with regards to the handling of classified information by President Biden, President Trump, or Vice President Pence. We have a classified information problem which needs to be fixed.”
