US Vice President Mike Pence has hired a personal lawyer to deal with requests from the special counsel investigating possible collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, a top aide has said. He also served as special counsel to Virginia Sen.
Pence has retained Richard Cullen, chairman of McGuire Woods and former US attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, the Washington Post reports. Richard Cullen has a long record as a high-profile attorney in Washington, particularly in Republican circles. Many expect Trump to roll back several policies and actions from former President Barack Obama done in an effort to help thaw relations between the two nations.
Comey testified last week that the President demanded loyalty and pressed him to drop a probe into disgraced ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn. The Associated Press and other news organizations have also reported that Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in December proposed a back channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin.
