"What I think is that it's been about a year since this investigation began", said the vice president.

"Today I trust is one more example of President Trump's commitment to demonstrate each and every day that America first doesn't mean America alone, that we are committed to advancing the interests and the ideals of the American people across this hemisphere and across the wider world", stated Pence.

Vice-president Mike Pence claimed Thursday it is time for special counselor Robert Mueller to conclude that his probe of Russian interference at the 2016 election.

As Morning Joe noted, the content and tone of Pence's call for the special counsel to end his investigation was remarkably similar to what President Richard Nixon said in January 1974 about the special prosecutor who was investigating him, Leon Jaworski. Our administration has provided over a million documents.

Pence went on: "And I would very respectfully encourage the special counsel and his team to bring their work to completion". In an interview with Andrea Mitchell on NBC's Today, the vice president urged Mueller to finish his investigation into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russian Federation.

When NBC asked Pence about Cohen, Pence tried to distance the Trump administration from that part of the investigation, calling it a "private matter".

"I have faith in this president's broad shoulders and big heart", the vice president said in a clip from a July 2017 speech - a phrase he used multiple times to describe his "friend" Trump.
