Vice President Hires Attorney

Jun 16, 2017

Vice President Pence hired a personal attorney on Thursday to represent him in the special counsel’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Richard Cullen will represent the Vice President. Cullen was U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia under George H.W. Bush. Issues that may involve the Vice President include former National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn. Flynn may have misled Pence about conversations he had with the Russian Ambassador. And Pence was one of those officials who were asked to leave the room when President Trump indicated to James Comey that he hoped Flynn would not be charged.
