Vice President Pence Hires Outside Lawyer To Deal With Russia Inquiries

Trump under investigation for possible obstruction of justice: Washington Post

US and Central American officials found common ground Thursday on the benefits of economic development and the need to reduce drug trafficking as the administration of President Donald Trump proposes to dial back financial assistance to the region.

Pence hired outside counsel to represent him before congressional inquiries and federal investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Richard previously served as Virginia attorney general and USA attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Mr. Trump has retained his own private legal counsel, as Mueller goes forward with the "witch hunt" Russian Federation probe, as the president has called it.

That's according to a statement from Pence spokesman Jarrod Agen.

Vice President Mike Pence has retained outside counsel, his office confirmed, as scrutiny of the White House intensifies. Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, misled Pence about his contacts with Russian officials - Pence then repeated the incorrect claims publicly.

An aide tells NPR the decision to hire an outside lawyer has been under consideration for weeks, and Pence chose to go forward with it earlier this week.

What's next in the Russia investigation
Both Gingrich and Ken Starr were closely involved in the investigation and impeachment of former President Bill Clinton. The possibility that Trump might at some point want to fire Mueller has to be viewed quite seriously.

Hardik Patel was later released on bail and transported out of Madhya Pradesh in a police vehicle, SP Abhishek Diwan said. The notification says the commission will probe "the use of force by police".

Mueller is also looking at a second line of inquiry: whether, if any potential offenses were committed, Trump or others attempted to cover them up or obstruct the investigation into them, the source said.

The Washington Post was first to report the news. He also said the US wants to secure its borders to "bolster USA national security" as part of the agenda of President Donald Trump.

Cullen previously served as attorney general of Virginia.

The White House says Pence will travel from August 13 to August 17. Spiro T. Agnew, Richard Nixon's vice president, retained outside counsel when he came under investigation on charges of extortion, tax fraud, bribery and conspiracy.

Marc Kasowitz, the outside counsel hired by President Trump, does not have experience in politically-charged cases.

The president has come under further scrutiny for his decision to fire FBI Director James B. Comey, a decision Trump later seemed to imply was related, in part, to the Russian Federation probe that Comey was overseeing.
