Vice president to travel to Central and South America

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence stepped up Washington's war of words with Venezuela on Thursday, telling Latin American leaders the country was a prime example of what happens when democracy is undermined, and urging the region to condemn its government.

Cullen served as a US attorney during President George H.W. Bush's administration.

The president has also hired outside counsel, attorney Marc Kasowitz, to handle Russia-related inquiries.

"I can confirm that the vice president has retained Richard Cullen of McGuireWoods to assist him in responding to inquiries by the special counsel", Jarrod Agen, communications director for Pence's office, told CBS News.

Cullen referred questions to Pence's office.

Bill Maher on Using the N-Word: 'I Did a Bad Thing'
The veteran rapper, who appeared in studio as a guest, began by telling Maher, "Sometimes you sound like a redneck trucker". Bill Maher , whose use of the n-word sparked controversy last week, apologized on Friday's episode Real Time .

He dismissed as "phony" the idea that his campaign colluded with any Russian effort to sway the 2016 election.

Cullen was also on the staff of former Rep. M Caldwell Butler, R-Virginia, who was a freshman congressman when he voted to impeach then-President Richard Nixon over the Watergate scandal.

Vice President Mike Pence told leaders of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador that the USA shares their goal of improving their economies, which coincides with a Trump agenda that includes stronger border enforcement and less illegal immigration.

The Washington Post was first to report the news.

He said: "The British will now have to set up a new team". "We are preparing for Brexit". We have completed the guidelines, the framework", Merkel said Friday in Mexico City.

As far as the public knows, Pence is not the subject of, or a person of interest in, any of the ongoing investigations surrounding the Trump campaign.

The president has come under further scrutiny for his decision to fire FBI Director James B. Comey, a decision Trump later seemed to imply was related, in part, to the Russian Federation probe that Comey was overseeing.

Earlier on Thursday, Trump called the probe a "witch hunt" on Twitter.

Examining the possibility of obstruction charges will allow investigators to interview key administration figures including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and possibly Trump himself, said the source familiar with the Mueller investigation. He used to work with former FBI Director James Comey, and he's the godfather to one of Comey's daughters.
