Former Vice President Mike Pence informed Congress on Tuesday that his team has discovered documents in his Indiana home that from his time in the Trump White House and marked as classified.

Pence said his team last week searched his Carmel, Indiana, home and the office of the political advocacy group Advancing American Freedom, after news broke that President Joe Biden stored classified documents in his home and office from his time as vice president, Fox News reported. 

Pence told the National Archives on Jan. 18 about some potentially classified materials discovered in two small boxes. The federal records agency then informed the FBI, which collected the documents the following evening while Pence was in Washington, D.C., to attend the March for Life.

The Justice Department will make the final decision whether the records are classified, Pence's team said.
