Pence hires counsel to deal with Russia probe inquiries

18 Juin 2017

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence stepped up Washington's war of words with Venezuela yesterday, telling Latin American leaders the country was a prime example of what happens when democracy is undermined, and urging the region to condemn its government. The FBI and other Federal prosecutors are also investigating the financials of a number of Trump's associates including Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and Carter Page.

Pence has fumbled publicly in the past while addressing the Trump campaign's Russian ties.

The document said there was "an obvious case" of obstruction that was never investigated against former Attorney General Loretta Lynch related to the FBI investigation of Clinton's email server. But Trump later said he was going to fire Comey regardless of the recommendation.

Pence will not be using taxpayer dollars to pay Cullen, a person close to the vice president told NBC.

Trump had been assured several times privately by Comey starting in January that he was not - at the time - personally under investigation, but officials said "that changed shortly after Comey's firing", reports The Washington Post.

And aides to Pence said the vice president was never informed of Flynn's overseas work with Turkey, either.

"We want to people to know as Hoosiers we do not support Pence and the policies that he represents", Annette Gross, an organizer of the protest said.

Vice President Mike Pence acknowledged Thursday the "seriously wounded" Rep. Steve Scalise and the "courageous" Capitol Police officers who engaged a gunman during the congressional baseball practice shooting a day before.

Trump's young presidency has been battered by allegations - under investigation both by Congress and the FBI, that Russian Federation interfered to sway the 2016 election in his favor, in possible collusion with Trump's campaign team.

Trump has been a vocal critic of the Russian investigation.

An examination of possible obstruction of justice charges was "unavoidable" given testimony by former FBI Director James Comey, although the issue may not become the main focus of the probe, the source said. It's a natural step for an official even tangentially related to an ongoing investigation to hire their own lawyer.

Richard Cullen, is a former Virginia attorney general and a former United States attorney for the eastern district of Virginia, reports CNN. They said they have made gains thanks to assistance from the US, which dramatically increased support for the three countries following a sharp increase in the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the USA border in 2014. Any such step would face a steep hurdle as it would require approval by the U.S. House of Representatives, which is controlled by Trump's fellow Republicans.

Cullen, through a spokesman, declined a request for an interview.
