CBS Giddy Over News Mike Pence Stored Classified Docs at His Home

News & Politics

Like a bunch of five-year-old children, CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell and chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes appeared to be beside themselves with excitement Tuesday over the news that former Vice President Mike Pence had about a dozen classified documents at his home in Indiana. Since they presumably see their jobs as serving as apparatchiks of the Biden regime and the Democrat Party at large, O’Donnell and Cordes were clearly relieved to know Pence was also reportedly guilty of having mishandling classified documents. 

“In a pair of letters to the National Archives, lawyers for former Vice President Mike Pence said they searched his home in Indiana last week out often an abundance of caution. There, they discovered a small number of documents bearing classified markings that were inadvertently boxed and transported to Pence’s home at the end of the last administration,” Cordes breathlessly reported. 

Cordes then jumped at the chance to portray Pence as dishonest by noting how “the search came just days after Pence assured multiple journalists, including CBS’s Robert Costa, that he had been more responsible about documents than President Biden was.” 

Once Cordes was done with her report, O’Donnell was giddy with excitement when bringing Cordes in to discuss the story further: “Nancy Cordes joins us now from the White House. So did they say anything there today about all this?”

Equally ecstatic, Cordes replied that “publicly, the White House had absolutely no reaction, but behind the scenes, several officials actually expressed relief that Mr. Biden is now not the only former Vice President to discover that he had some classified documents stored in an unsecure area.” 

You can be sure that the leftist media will use the Pence situation to shield Biden from his own irresponsibility in mishandling documents. Since there’s no excusing Biden’s behavior, leftist activists like O’Donnell and Cordes will point to Pence in order to distract the public from the Biden documents scandal. 

What the leftist media will never mention is that, unlike Biden, Pence made the discovery public right away, and didn’t wait months to make the disclosure.

NANCY CORDES: In a pair of letters to the National Archives, lawyers for former Vice President Mike Pence said they searched his home in Indiana last week out often an abundance of caution. There, they discovered a small number of documents bearing classified markings that were inadvertently boxed and transported to Pence’s home at the end of the last administration. The documents, they say, were placed in a safe, and FBI agents came to the Indiana residence last week to collect them. 

VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE: These are the nation’s secrets— 

CORDES: The search came just days after Pence assured multiple journalists, including CBS’s Robert Costa, that he had been more responsible about documents than President Biden was. 

PENCE: Our staff reviewed all of the materials in our office and in our residence to ensure that there were no classified materials that left the White House or remained in our possession. 

CORDES: Former President Trump whose own handling of documents is under investigation came to his VP’s defense today. Mike Pence is an innocent man, he wrote, leave him alone. Mr. Biden, whose Delaware home was searched by the FBI last week, wouldn’t weigh in on today’s news, nor would Attorney General Merrick Garland, who has already appointed special counsels to examine the Biden and Trump situations. 

ATTORNEY GENERAL MERRICK GARLAND: Well, as you expect, I’m afraid my answer is going to have to be I’m unable to comment on this. 

NORAH O’DONNELL: Nancy Cordes joins us now from the White House. So did they say anything there today about all this? 

CORDES: Norah, publicly, the White House had absolutely no reaction, but behind the scenes, several officials actually expressed relief that Mr. Biden is now not the only former Vice President to discover that he had some classified documents stored in an unsecure area. 

O’DONNELL: Nancy Cordes, thank you so much.
