Former President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Mike Pence is an innocent man after classified papers were discovered at the former vice presidents home in Indiana.

What Happened: The former U.S. leader made his remarks on Truth Social. Trump said, [Pence] never did anything knowingly dishonest in his life. Leave him alone!!!
