VP Pence Comments On Mueller Probe

Vice President Mike Pence was interviewed by NBC this week, and stated he believes it’s time for Robert Mueller to finish his witch hunt investigation.

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.

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 case is a ‘hoax.’

VP Pence Leaves NFL Game After Protest

Vice President Mike Pence, the former governor of Indiana, walked out of yesterday’s Colts-49ers game after fifteen San Francisco players took a knee during the National Anthem.

Vice President Mike Pence walked out on his home-state Indianapolis Colts Sunday when members of the opposing team kneeled for the national anthem, but a report that Colin Kaepernick, the player who started it all, will stand if given another shot in the NFL was quickly dialed back.

“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence tweeted.

Several San Francisco 49ers players kneeled for the anthem on Sunday in Indianapolis. While a quarterback for the 49ers last year, Colin Kaepernick sat or kneeled during the national anthem last season to bring more attention to the killings of black men by police officers. The protests have grown this season.

Say what you will about Vice President Pence, but he is an honorable man who loves his country.
