NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell noted Mueller was a Republican and asked Pence whether he trusted him.

The Justice Department tapped Mueller to lead the investigation nearly a year ago.

US Vice-President Mike Pence has urged special counsel Robert Mueller to "wrap up" his investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"Well, what I can say is that that private matter is something I don't have any knowledge about, and I think the White House issued a statement saying the same", Pence replied.

The administration has denied any wrongdoing and Trump routinely calls the probe a "witch hunt".

A leading Trump critic's busy Thursday morning of tweeting included a direct shot at Vice President Mike Pence. But the sprawling investigation has ensnared a number of former Trump advisers, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Pence added: "I would very respectfully encourage the special counsel and his team to bring their work to completion". Giuliani said last week. "They are really three incredible people and the fact that we were able to get them out so soon is. really a tribute to a lot of things including a certain process that is taking place right now".

Giuliani has also said things are also made more hard by the president's schedule.

"We're seeing hopeful signs from Kim Jong Un that he is prepared to embrace complete denuclearization - that's his words", Pence said.
