Pence calls hiring of counsel 'routine'

Pence calls hiring of counsel 'routine'

US Vice President Mike Pence has hired a personal lawyer to deal with requests from the special counsel investigating possible collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, a top aide said Thursday.

He was also the US attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia during former President George W. Bush's administration.

Now 69 and chairman of the Richmond-based law firm McGuireWoods LLP, Cullen worked for Virginia officials during the Watergate and Iran-Contra investigations, and represented Tom DeLay during a lobbying scandal that resulted in no charges against the former House GOP leader.

"I can confirm that the Vice President has retained Richard Cullen of McGuireWoods to assist him in responding to inquiries by the special counsel", Pence spokesman Jarrod Agen said in an emailed statement. Kasowitz is less a navigator of Washington and more a proven loyalist, a NY attorney who helped Trump through troubles from divorce to bankruptcy.

UAE for Western oversight over Qatar's actions
The deadline for Qataris to leave neighboring Gulf Arab states has come into effect as the diplomatic st. Arab countries had initially dominated the Qatari monarchy after its independence in 1971.

But at Thursday night's congressional baseball game, for which lawmakers were practicing when they were fired upon, Pence said the best of America will shine.

As Trump's No. 2 and as head of the transition team, Pence has increasingly found himself drawn into the widening Russian Federation investigation. Everything Trump says now, Bob Mueller will use against him.

The Republican former governor of IN has always been a prolific fundraiser. Trump's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, issued a statement saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation was behind the story and called the leak "outrageous, inexcusable and illegal".

Vice President Mike Pence told leaders of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador that the US shares their goal of improving their economies, which coincides with a Trump agenda that includes stronger border enforcement and less illegal immigration.

Sainsbury's favourite to acquire Nisa in £130m deal
Any sales offers would require the backing of more than 50 per cent of Nisa's shopkeeper members. The business would complement Sainsbury's chain of 800 convenience stores.

A series of "talking points" sent Wednesday night to Trump allies provided a road map for trying to undercut the significance of the latest revelation related to possible obstruction of justice. Trump spent a good portion of the day tweeting in anger about that and other related issues.

The announcement comes amid reports that Mueller's investigation has broadened to include Donald Trump's son-in-law and close adviser Jared Kushner.

"A convulsing Central America, faced with a lack of opportunities and with violence, is a tremendous risk for the United States, Mexico and the region", said Juan Orlando Hernandez, president of Honduras.

During the 2000 Florida recount, Cullen was a member of former President George W. Bush's legal team. It said the vice-president had earlier interviewed several candidates. "Experience is everything", she said.
