Pence hires outside legal counsel for Russia probe

Trump under investigation for possible obstruction of justice: Washington Post

The lawyer, Richard Cullen, is a former Virginia attorney general and a former USA attorney for the eastern district of Virginia.

Vice President Mike Pence noted the presence of 85,000 gang members in those three countries, which make up Central America's so-called "Northern Triangle", and said their activities "radiate outward and reach the United States" while most US -bound drugs flow through Central America.

The vice president's office said Thursday that Pence has retained Richard Cullen, a Richmond-based lawyer and chairman of McGuire Woods who previously served as a USA attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia.

Mayweather vs. McGregor is Official!
It is reported that each fighter could earn $100m (£78.4m ) from the bout, which would be one of the richest in boxing history. It is unclear whether it was a mistake or whether McGregor did it on objective , as he is known to provoke his opponents.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether anyone on Trump's campaign, or associated with it, with him or with any of his businesses, may have had any illegal dealings with Russian officials or others with ties to the Kremlin, said one USA official familiar with the rough outlines of the probe who spoke on condition of anonymity.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data, apprehensions of illegal immigrants at the U.S. -Mexico border fell to 19,967 in May from 42,473 in January, a drop of 53 percent.

The Washington Post was the first to report the news Thursday, noting that Pence had hired former Virginia attorney general Richard Cullen to represent him. He launched into a new Twitter tirade against it Thursday morning, calling it "phony" and the "single greatest with hunt in American political history". He used to work with former FBI Director James Comey, and he's the godfather to one of Comey's daughters. "Mueller is setting up a dragnet of obstruction, financial questions and every aspect of Trump's life and his associates lives", said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who labeled it "very unsafe".

England 'should have got a result' against France - Gareth Southgate
Djibril Sidibe also got on the global scoresheet for the first time to put France in front two minutes before half-time. Harry Kane has been captain on his two starts under the new manager and now scored in both games.

Trump responded to reports he is personally being investigated for obstruction of justice with a characteristic scorched earth defense: claiming mistreatment of historic proportions and calling into question the probity of his accusers.

A source close to Pence said he had been interviewing lawyers for weeks to represent him.

The vice president's office said Pence is committed to cooperating in the investigation, and he hired lawyer Richard Cullen so Pence could continue to focus on the administration's goals.

More Alleged iPhone 7s, iPhone 8 Front & Back Panels Leaked
A Foxconn insider claimed earlier this month that the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus would stick to the unibody aluminum design. The iPhone 7S and 7S Plus are expected to have the same design as the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, except for the glass back.

Trump did not directly address the allegations that he is being probed for possibly obstructing justice, a potentially impeachable offense. Any such step would face a steep hurdle as it would require approval by the U.S. House of Representatives, which is controlled by Trump's fellow Republicans.
