FLASHBACK: Pence went after Trump over classified documents before finding stash in his own house

Former Vice President Mike Pence once criticized former President Trump for mishandling classified documents in November, only for Pence to discover classified documents in his own home this week.

Pence made the comments during a November appearance on Meet the Press, with host Chuck Todd questioning him on a number of topics. Pence called Trump’s handling of classified documents “not proper” at the time. 

“I’ve not hesitated to criticize the president when I think he was wrong. And clearly, possessing classified documents in an unprotected area is not proper,” Pence said, going on to criticize how Biden’s Justice Department handled the issue.

“I was on the Judiciary Committee for ten years in the House of Representatives. I, I know how the Justice Department works, and there had to be many other ways to resolve those issues,” he added.
