Pence Says He'd Sit Down For Mueller Interview

Pence Says He'd Sit Down For Mueller Interview

Pence added his staff to the list of more than two dozen high-ranking administration officials who have denied writing the column. "And I was I was heartened to see so many of our colleagues make it very clear that they weren't involved in this in any way".

Vice-president Mike Pence says he is "100% confident" that none of his staff were behind an anonymous article that described Donald Trump as "amoral" and "erratic". In an editor's note, the Times said it knows the author's identity but agreed not to reveal it because the person's job would be jeopardized.

"To have an individual who took that oath - literally say that they work every day to frustrate the president advancing the agenda he was elected to advance, is undemocratic".

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Thursday said Trump administration officials should consider invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office, becoming perhaps the most prominent member of Congress to suggest such a move.

In the interview with Fox News Channel's Chris Wallace, Pence denied that he was the author of the op-ed and said he would gladly submit to a lie-detector test to prove it. I know their character.

"I know them", he explained.

He repeated his belief that the essay writer should do the "honourable thing and resign".

Trump has dismissed Woodward's book as a "work of fiction" and the Times op-ed author as "gutless".

"People who work for him are anxious - that he will sign things or give orders that threaten the national security or financial security of the world", Woodward said on the "Sunday Morning" broadcast.

The book, Fear: Trump In The White House, is scheduled to be formally released on Tuesday, all but ensuring that the debate over Mr Trump's leadership ability and style will extend into a second straight week.

A top Pence aide has already said the vice president didn't write the anonymous piece criticising President Donald Trump's leadership. Trump hasn't said whether he'd go that far, but Pence says he's willing.

"We'll find out if there was criminal activity involved", vice-president Mike Pence told Fox News Sunday. "Anybody who would do this, you don't know what else they're saying".

"If the Attorney General, the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation feels like they have oversight over a matter like this, then they will make that decision", she added.

Trump has said the Justice Department should investigate and unmask the anonymous author.

Neither Pence nor Conway answered directly when asked if Sessions should treat Trump's comments as an order. Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to the president, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that talk the amendment has been discussed at the White House "is such nonsense".

He insisted that he had cooperated with all requests for information from the special counsel and will continue to.
