Pence: I’m confident no one on my staff wrote the NYT column

Pence: I’m confident no one on my staff wrote the NYT column

I'm 100 per cent confident that no one on the Vice-President's staff was involved in this anonymous editorial.

Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, a Trump ally, has said the president would be justified in using lie detectors to ferret out the anonymous writer.

The vice president declined to speculate on whether someone had purposely inserted the word "lodestar" into the Times op-ed to set him up, telling Wallace simply, "I wouldn't know".

In an interview that aired Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation," Pence said that he has "fully cooperated" with Mueller's team over the past year and would be "more than willing to continue to provide any and all support" to aid the investigation.

His press secretary also called on the official, whose identity is still unknown, to resign.

"They get up every day and are dedicated, just as much as I am, to advancing the president's agenda and supporting everything".

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said the writer was "motivated by conceit", and she denied that the op-ed and Woodward book had harmed trust levels inside the White House. It described a "two-track presidency" in which "many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr Trump's more misguided impulses until he is out of office". And I'm just not aware of instances where they've occurred and or where they would occur.

Anyone who watched that series, or have watched the Browns at all since 1999, knows that the team is not in a good place. Ben Roethlisberger turned the ball over four times, including a fumble in overtime that should have ended the game.

Pence is one of several White House officials who denied writing the op-ed.

"Every senior official in any administration takes an oath to the Constitution", Pence said.

With Trump having clearly expressed his ire over the anonymous op-ed, White House staffers toggled between playing down the significance of the criticism and denouncing the author. The book, Fear: Trump in the White House, is scheduled to be formally released this week, all but ensuring that the debate over Mr Trump's leadership ability and style will extend into a second straight week.

Woodward has said he stands by his reporting.

Democrats expressed frustration that Trump again appeared to be stepping far outside the bounds of what would be considered appropriate requests for a president to make of the Justice Department.

In interviews with Fox News Sunday and CBS' Face the Nation that aired Sunday, Pence also said he is "100 percent certain" that no one from his staff wrote the op-ed and that he would be "more than willing" to sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his ongoing Russian Federation probe.

Appearing on CNN, Sen.
