Following in the footsteps of Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence has hired an outside attorney to represent him in the government’s probe of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, the Washington Post reported. Pence – whose name has never previously been mentioned in any Russian-linked affairs – has retained Richard Cullen, a Richmond attorney from McGuire Woods, who previously served as a US attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia.
“I can confirm that the Vice President has retained Richard Cullen of McGuire Woods to assist him in responding to inquiries by the special counsel,” Pence spokesman Jarrod Agen said in a statement. “The Vice President is focused entirely on his duties and promoting the President’s agenda and looks forward to a swift conclusion of this matter.”
