Representative Jamie Raskin, the ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, is demanding the Secret Service provide information about visitors to former President Donald Trump’s and Vice President Mike Pence’s personal residences since leaving office in light of the “mishandling of sensitive, highly classified documents.”
In a letter dated Tuesday to the agency’s director, Kimberly Cheatle, Raskin, of Maryland, cites classified records found at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida last year and recent reports of classified documents found at Pence’s Indiana home.
“Given that the U.S. Secret Service provided protection for Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence during the time they stored classified materials at their respective residences, the committee is seeking information from your agency regarding who had access to former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and former Vice President Pence’s personal residence since leaving office,” Raskin wrote.
Rasking is demanding that the Secret Service turn over all documents and communications related to visitor information at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and Pence’s home in Carmel, Indiana, from the time they left office, by a deadline of February 14.
As House Republican Party focus their oversight efforts on President Joe Biden’s handling of classified documents, Democrats on Oversight moved to highlight former President Donald Trump’s and former Vice President Mike Pence’s own issues with handling classified information.
