Report: Mike Pence May Be Called to Interview With Mueller Team
Washington Examiner ^ | l | Dec 5, 2017, 8:14 PM | by Diana Stancy Correl

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 Trump’s knowledge of certain events, suggest many advisers knew of Flynn’s communications with Kislyak.

Pence oversaw Trump’s transition team and was aware that Flynn had contacted Russia, but was not informed about Flynn’s 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.

Pence’s 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 Flynn’s contacts with Russians.

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.

“Interview” over.

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.

Nobody has any idea how much was secretly recorded by the Obama Intelligence Apparatus during the transition. Talking to Mueller is severely risky.
