Vice President Pence hires outside counsel to answer Russia probe questions: Vice President Pence has hired a private lawyer to help him respond to questions raised by the special counsel investigating interactions between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Pence communications director Jarrod Agen confirmed Thursday that Pence hired Richard Cullen, former U.S. attorney who is chairman of McGuire Woods, a Washington-based law firm. “The vice president is focused entirely on his duties and promoting the president agenda and looks forward to a swift conclusion of this matter,” Agen said in a statement.

The news was first reported by The Washington Post. Pence is scheduled to be in Indianapolis Friday to raise money for his political action committee.

Although Pence has not been at the center of the questions raised about Trump campaign officials, he hasn’t escaped unscathed.
