Former President Donald Trump praised former Vice President Mike Pence the day after Pence was issued with a subpoena as part of the investigation into the former president’s handling of classified documents.
In an interview with Fox News Digital on Friday, Trump defended the former vice president and later took to his Truth Social platform to criticize Special Counsel Jack Smith.
Smith, who is investigating Trump’s handling of White House documents found at his Mar-a-Lago residence, issued a subpoena to Pence on Thursday after months of negotiations between investigators and Pence’s legal team.

“Mike Pence is an honorable man,” Trump told Fox News Digital.
“Are they going to look for the people that spied on my campaign?” the former president asked.
On Truth Social, Trump also criticized the special counsel and appeared to defend former Vice President Pence.
“Will Trump Hating Prosecutor Jack Smith be investigating the FACT that they SPIED on my campaign, even as I was in the Oval Office, they Stuffed the Ballot Boxes (per 2000 Mules), used Covid to cheat, that the FBI pushed Twitter & Facebook around, causing massive voter disruption, and so much more?” Trump posted.
“That’s really what he should be looking at, not asking a very decent Mike Pence why he didn’t send the votes back to State Legislatures for scrutinization, which he could have done. Get the RIGGERS!” he added.
Trump had earlier defended Pence after documents were found at his home, writing on Truth Social on January 24: “Mike Pence is an innocent man. He never did anything knowingly dishonest in his life. Leave him alone!!!”

In January, lawyers for Pence searched his Indiana home and found what attorney Greg Jacob described as “a small number of documents that could potentially contain sensitive or classified information interspersed throughout the records.”
Those documents were collected by the FBI but on Friday one additional classified document was found at the former vice president’s home after a five-hour search conducted with the Pence team’s cooperation.
