Vice President Pence urged Robert Mueller to “wrap up” his never-ending investigation into Russian collusion Thursday, saying the special counsel needs to “bring his work to completion.”

“Bob Mueller… Do you think he’s a bad guy? Do you think his investigation is a hoax?” asked Mitchell.
“What I think is that it’s been about a year since this investigation began,” fired-back the Vice President. “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,” he added.

PENCE AT CPAC: ‘Make No Mistake About It, We Will Build That Wall’
Vice President Mike Pence vowed to follow through on President Trump’s signature campaign promise Thursday; telling audience members during his 2018 CPAC address that the administration is “going to build that wall.”
The Vice President was delivering his remarks at the annual conservative gathering when he pledged to “build the wall” along the United States’ southern border with Mexico; saying “President Trump promised to enforce our laws and secure our borders.”
“President Trump promised to enforce our laws, secure our borders, and today illegal crossings at our southern border have been cut nearly in half and make no mistake about it, we’re going to build that wall,” said Pence to loud cheers from the audience.
With Congress setting its sights on immigration reform in the coming weeks, President Trump has routinely stated there can be no agreement on DACA without fully funding his proposed border wall.

PENCE STRIKES BACK: The VP SLAMS Joy Behar for ‘Religious Intolerance,’ DEFENDS his Faith
Vice President Mike Pence struck back against Joy Behar’s vicious anti-religious comments on Wednesday, blasting the liberal comedian after she openly compared Christianity to having a “mental illness.”
“To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence told C-SPAN this week. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”
“It demonstrates how out of touch some in the mainstream media are with the faith and values of the American people that you could have a major network like ABC permit a forum for invective against religion like that,” he added.
The Vice President was referring to Behar’s fiery rhetoric while discussing former Trump advisor Omarosa Manigault’s baseless assertion that Pence believes “Jesus tells him to say things.”
“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices,” Behar told her fellow ‘View’ cohosts.
