The intensity of the probe over the Trump administration’s ties to Russia appears to have spooked the vice president, and rightly so. Mike Pence has apparently hired personal lawyers because of the developments in the special counsel investigation, which Trump has described as a witch hunt. Pence confirmed the hiring and said he wants a swift conclusion to the investigation. He joins the president himself and Jared Kushner in hiring personal counsel in relation to the special counsel.
FINSUM: This seems a very wise move for Pence, as even if he has done nothing at all wrong, there is no telling where this investigation might lead.
