Skip to comments.Report: Mike Pence May Be Called to Interview With Mueller Team
Posted on 12/05/2017 6:02:30 PM PST by drewh
Vice President Mike Pence may be tapped for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is spearheading an investigation to determine if the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, according to a report Tuesday.
Although Pence has maintained he was unaware former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn spoke with former Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak about U.S. sanctions, court filings unsealed last week, along with new information revealed about Trumps knowledge of certain events, suggest many advisers knew of Flynns communications with Kislyak.
Pence oversaw Trumps transition team and was aware that Flynn had contacted Russia, but was not informed about Flynns discussion about the sanctions, transition officials told CNN. As a result, those close to Pence are concerned Mueller will press Pence for an interview with his team.
"They are preparing for that," said an anonymous source close to Pence.
"Chairing the transition would make it possible regardless of who it was," another source added.
Pences spokesperson denied that Pence is preparing for an interview with Mueller's team.
Lawmakers are also interested in hearing from Pence. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., has called for Pence to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to provide insight into what he knew concerning Flynns contacts with Russians.

Tell them to go to hell and shut that farce down!!
The answer is no...
Don’t do it. They are laying a trap for you.
The FBI was able to go through 650,00 Weiner mails in about 20 minutes and determined hillary did nothing wrong.
Only two answers, VP Pence -— only two:
I don’t recall.
I plead the 5th.
Don’t even answer “yes” to your name or read the clock for them -— that might give them enough syllables for a process charge.
No, tell them to come to you and please submit the questions in advance. When they show up, go through the pleasantries and give them a sheet of written answers.
exactly pull a bubba clinton on him.
Follow the three rules for criminal suspects:
1. Don’t talk to the cops.
2. Don’t talk to the cops.
3. Don’t talk to the cops.
The coup continues.
There are lots of leaks that are Fake News out there
Not sure what their end game is but they aint gonna win
Speaking of Pence, he has been AWOL in defending Trump.
Tell them hell no. This is not the USSR - he cannot be called in for questioning. If they want to serve a grand jury subpoena on the sitting Vice President, let em try it.
Exactly. “talk to my lawyer” and go piss off.
Pence should refuse to cooperate with this farce.
Nobody has any idea how much was secretly recorded by the Obama Intelligence Apparatus during the transition. Talking to Mueller is severely risky.
rumor is that the Russian diploamts phone was hacked and used as an recording device.
