It's nearly like the man on trial for murder with the evidence stacked against him, telling the judge "Your Honor I think we should stop this now, for the sake of the jury".

"I think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful", Mr. Trump said of future talks with North Korea.

Vice President Mike Pence said it was time for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to "wrap it up" regarding his Russian Federation investigation during an interview airing Friday.

Pence was asked about other families of prisoners in Iran who now fear the same fate as Warmbier in the aftermath of President Donald Trump's decision earlier this week to withdraw from the nuclear accord with the terrorist nation. Pence said the White House has been cooperating with investigators for the previous year.

"Do you think his investigation is a hoax?" "And in the interest of the country, I think it's time to wrap it up".

Venezuela Slams Pence for Calls to Suspend Country's OAS Membership
Those sanctioned Monday are in addition to the dozens of current and former Venezuelan officials the USA already has targeted. On Monday, US Vice President Mike Pence urged members of the 35-nation Organisation of American States to suspend Venezuela .

As for the whole controversy surrounding Cohen paying off Trump's alleged mistress Stormy Daniels and reportedly selling access to the president by receiving hundreds of thousand of dollars from corporate giants, Pence said it was a "private matter" and he had no knowledge of it.

Compared with Trump's public repudiations of Mueller's investigation, Pence's comments were significantly tamer.

"Why write original material when Nixon can write it for you?" remarked cable television host Joe Scarborough on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Thursday.

Vice President Mike Pence is also expected to attend.
