The FBI found an additional classified document Friday during a search of the Indiana home of former Vice President Mike Pence, his spokesman told CNBC.

Authorities also took six other pages of records that did not bear classified markings after completing the five-hour search, Pence advisor Devin O’Malley said in a statement.

“The vice president has directed his legal team to continue its cooperation with appropriate authorities and to be fully transparent through the conclusion of this matter,” O’Malley said.

The search came more than two weeks after Pence’s attorney told the National Archives and Records Administration that a “small number” of documents with classified markings had been found at the former vice president’s residence.

Those records were discovered after Pence asked outside counsel to look for them — a decision that Pence’s lawyer said was prompted by the news that classified documents had been found at President Joe Biden’s home in Delaware.

The FBI and the Justice Department declined to comment on the search.

A member of Pence’s legal team was present throughout the search of his Carmel, Indiana, home, to which the DOJ was given “unrestricted access,” according to a person familiar with the matter.

In addition to looking for classified documents, authorities searched for records that could be “original Presidential Record Act documents,” the person said.

The DOJ assured that the scope of its search was the same for Pence as it was during searches of Biden’s Delaware homes, according to the person.

Neither Pence nor his wife, Karen Pence, were there at the time, the person noted.
