Former President Donald Trump defended his vice president Mike Pence on Truth Social after lawyers for the former veep’s lawyers said a number of materials with classified markings were found at his home in Carmel, Indiana.
“Mike Pence is an innocent man,” Trump wrote. “He never did anything knowingly dishonest in his life. Leave him alone!!!”
It isn’t quite clear whether Trump is being serious in his defense of Pence or poking fun at him, considering that his relationship with his former vice president has been ice cold since Pence refused to oblige by his demands that he not certify the 2020 elections results.
For his part, Pence insists that he had no knowledge of classified materials being in his possession and says that they were inadvertently brought to his home by aides after he left the vice presidency.
