The FBI is expected to search former Vice President Mike Pence’s Indiana home and Washington, DC-area office for more classified documents.
Sources said the Justice Department is in talks with Pence’s legal team currently.
Pence’s team does not believe there are additional documents to be found, CNN said.
Last month, Pence’s lawyers voluntarily disclosed that documents with classified markings were discovered at the ex-veep’s home – on the heels of classified documents being found at President Joe Biden’s former DC office and Wilmington home, and after former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a- Lago was raided by the FBI for missing classified documents in August.

The documents were found by one of Pence’s lawyers, who had been tasked with looking through his papers at the vice president‘s request, out of the abundance of caution after the Biden and Trump discoveries.
They were located on January 16, with Pence’s lawyer Greg Jacob writing a letter and informing the National Archives of the discovery on January 18.
Jacob asked a top Archives official for help ‘collecting and transferring to the custody of the National Archives an additional set of Vice Presidential records.’
‘The additional records appear to be a small number of documents bearing classified markings that were inadvertently boxed and transported to the personal home of the former Vice President at the end of the last Administration,’ Jacob said.
“Vice President Pence was unaware of the existence of sensitive or classified documents at his personal residence,” the lawyer added.
