"What are your plans to sit for an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller?" CBS host Margaret Brennan asked Vice President Mike Pence on Face the Nation Sunday. "I would be more than willing to continue to provide any and all support in that," Pence said, "and we have outside counsel that will advise me accordingly."
The vice president reported Mueller has asked his office for other information already but has not requested an interview. Mueller's investigation is "not the president's focus," Pence continued, a difficult claim to credit given President Trump's regular all-caps tweets on the subject.
