Former President Donald Trump reacted Friday to the DOJ's announcement that it wouldn't prosecute former Vice President Mike Pence over classified documents he reported having in his possession after leaving office.

"Just announced that they are not going to bring charges against Mike Pence on the document hoax," Trump posted on Truth Social. "That’s great, but when am I going to be fully exonerated, I’m at least as innocent as he is. And what about Joe Biden, who is hiding at least 1850 boxes, and some located in Chinatown, DC? When will the witch hunt against 'TRUMP' stop?"

President Joe Biden and Pence both criticized Trump after the FBI raid on Mar-A-Lago found that he had several boxes of classified documents there.

Both of them later also found classified documents in their possession that they should not have had.

The DOJ may be reluctant to prosecute Trump or Pence because if they did, they'd also have to go after Biden.

Pence will reportedly announce his presidential campaign for 2024 next week.
