Donald Trump's former right-hand man

Donald Trump - American businessman and politician Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946 in New York - the former Vice President of the United States Mike Pence

Michael Richard "Mike" Pence is the current vice president of the United States and criticized the FBI's search of the Florida property of the former president, reported France Press, quoted by BTA.

"I share the great concern of millions of Americans following the unprecedented search of President Trump's private residence," tweeted Pence, who in two years could face Trump in the presidential race.

Yesterday evening, Trump announced that his luxury property in Florida had been raided and, as he put it, "occupied by many agents of the federal police."

Conservatives in the US unanimously said it was a political persecution.

Pence, whose reaction was delayed, said today that yesterday's actions undermine the public's confidence in the US judicial system.

"After years of finding FBI agents acting politically motivated during our administration, the impression of bias left by the Department of Justice must be corrected," Pence said.

At the same time, an appeals court in the Judicial District of Columbia ruled that a committee in the House of Representatives of the US Congress has the right to see Trump's tax returns, reported Reuters.

It is another stage in a long legal battle, and it is now nearing its end, and it is likely that Trump's financial affairs will come to light before the 2024 election, the agency said.

Trump was the first US president in 40 years not to release his tax returns, which would have revealed details of his wealth and the activities of his family company.
