Politico Just Exposed Mike Pence’s Secret Ploy To Cut Deal With Mueller

A previously unreported proposition from Vice President Mike Pence toward Special Prosecutor Mueller’s Russia investigation team has just come to light tonight.

According to Politico, Vice President Mike Pence sent his lawyer to meet privately with special counsel Robert Mueller to express his willingness to cooperate with Mueller’s investigation.

Citing a person familiar with the meeting, Politico reports that Pence retained Richard Cullen, chairman of McGuireWoods and a former U.S. attorney, in June to represent him in the Russia probe. The meeting with Mueller took place soon after Cullen accepted the job.

Pence, who has largely remained on the sidelines of the Russia controversy, became a central figure in the firing of national security adviser Michael Flynn, after Trump said he fired Flynn for misleading Pence about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador during the transition.

After news emerged that Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort had met with a Kremlin lawyer on June 9, 2016 at Trump Tower to collect damaging information about Hillary Clinton, Pence quickly washed his hands, claiming that the meeting occurred before he was picked as a running mate. But it was Russia-backed Manafort himself who fought hard for Pence to share the ticket.

As evidence mounts of Pence’s participation in a cover-up of the Trump campaign’s Russia connections so does the heat on Pence to flip.

Pence’s office declined to comment on this report.
