Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday morning he believes it’s time for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to end his long ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Pence told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell that he thinks Mueller has spent enough time on the investigation and reiterated that President Donald Trump’s administration has fully complied with Mueller’s requests, providing him with over 1 million documents.
“What I think is that it’s been about a year since this investigation began,” Pence said in an interview on NBC’s “Today” show. “Our administration has provided over a million documents, we’ve fully cooperated in it and 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,” Pence continued.
