Mike Pence Stands Up for Trump against Mueller!

Written by Joe Scudder

Vice President Mike Pence told the media it was time for Robert Mueller’s investigation to come to an end.

Mike Pence doesn’t show any sign of wanting to abandon the Trump Train because of media and political hostility. On the contrary, he is pointing to Trump’s victories.

Sadly, CNN insists on framing Donald Trump as Richard Nixon.

Nixon had his problems, but his most important weakness was there was no internet and social media by which the populace could resist the media narrative. And Nixon didn’t have a twitter account so he could troll the mainstream media and keep them off balance.

Is there any chance that Mueller will “wrap up” the investigation soon? I doubt it. I think the whole point is to extend the probe into the midterm elections and generate negative publicity on Republicans.

The Daily Mail reports, “‘I think it’s time to wrap it up’: Pence tells Mueller he’s had a year to run his Russia probe but won’t say it’s a ‘hoax.’

Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday that he believes it’s time for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to finish his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and other potential misdeeds by people in President Donald Trump’s orbit.

‘In the interests of the country, I think it’s time to wrap it up,’ Pence told NBC News in an airplane hangar following the return home of three Americans who had been held prisoner by North Korea.

Pence said the Trump administration has ‘fully cooperated’ with Mueller’s probe, including turning over more than 1 million documents. But he wouldn’t respond to a question about whether he agrees with the president that the entire case is a ‘hoax.’

Trump has called the investigation a ‘witch hunt’; his outside counsel, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has called on the Justice Department to put an end to the probe.

‘I would very respectfully encourage the special counsel and his team to bring their work to completion,’ Pence added Thursday.

The vice president was pressed on the news about millions of dollars in payments from companies to Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Pence said that was a ‘private matter’ and ‘something I don’t have any knowledge about.’
