Pence says he didn't leave office with classified material

Source: ctvnews.ca

DES MOINES, IOWA -
Former U.S. vice-president Mike Pence said Friday that he didn't take any classified information with him when he left office.
Pence made the comment during an interview with The Associated Press in Iowa a week and a half after the FBI seized classified and top secret information during a search at former U.S. president Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.
Asked directly if he retained any classified information upon leaving office, Pence said, "No, not to my knowledge."

I would like to hear what other former VP and presidents say about their conduct on this issue.

I thought I might be going too far by making such a suggestion until I see the post right before mine.

He thinks he can establish himself with old school republicans, as if there are any left. You're never going to be president dude!

I don't think Pence showed his face in Washington after that, did he? Too scared of Chump and Humpers.

I wouldn't believe anything he says. He knew crimes were being committed and did nothing . He knows TFG is a criminal, and is corrupt , yet says nothing.

“No, not to my knowledge.”

Wanna bet they are checking his limo’s gas tank within 2 minutes of reading this?

For the best non-denial denial.

Politicians learn early-on to never speak in absolutes. This way they can’t be accused of lying later on.

He could easily buy into the idea that Trump had the power to declassify everything at will.
