In an interview that aired Thursday on NBC’s “Today,” Vice President Mike Pence said it was time for special counsel Robert Mueller to “wrap up” his investigation.
Partial transcript as follows:
MITCHELL: Bob Mueller, you knew him. He must have briefed you when you were a member of Congress, is a Marine, he’s a life-long Republican, do you think he can be trusted? Do you think he is a bad guy?
PENCE: Our administration has been fully cooperating with the special counsel and will continue to.
MITCHELL: Do you think his investigation is a hoax?
PENCE: What I think is it’s been about a year since this investigation began. Our administration has provided over a million documents. We’ve fully cooperated in it in the interest of the country. I think it’s time to wrap it up. I would very respectfully encourage the special counsel and his team to bring their work to completion.
