In an interview with NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Vice President Mike Pence said he thinks its time for Robert Mueller to “wrap up” his probe.
MITCHELL: Bob Mueller, you knew him. He must have briefed you when you were a member of Congress, is a Marine, he’s a life-long Republican, do you think he can be trusted? Do you think he is a bad guy?
PENCE: Our administration has been fully cooperating with the special counsel and will continue to.
MITCHELL: Do you think his investigation is a hoax?
PENCE: What I think is it’s been about a year since this investigation began. Our administration has provided over a million documents. We’ve fully cooperated in it in the interest of the country. I think it’s time to wrap it up. I would very respectfully encourage the special counsel and his team to bring their work to completion.
Polls have shown that the probe is losing steam in the eyes of the American people. A CBS poll from yesterday claimed that 53% view the probe as politically motivated. However, polls have also shown that the American people don’t want Trump to fire Mueller.
