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

  • Forty-seven men had the role of vice president before Mike Pence. Nine of them found themselves unexpectedly promoted to the

"Let me be very clear".

Pence also attacked the author of the op-ed and the New York Times: "I think the author of the anonymous editorial, and frankly the New York Times, should be ashamed".

"I know my people", Mr Pence told CBS's Face the Nation. Pence vowed that his aides are as dedicated as he is to advancing Trump's agenda.

Omarosa isn't the only person connected to the Trump White House who thinks the mystery writer may be Pence.

Asked by "Face the Nation" host Margaret Brennan whether he had participated in any discussions with other Cabinet members about removing Trump from office, Pence replied, "No". I know their character.

"I know their dedication and I am absolutely confident that no one on the Vice-President's staff had anything to do with this."

Ramos backed by ITF over 'regrettable' Serena rant
Well Julie here's a cartoon I drew a few days before when Australian male tennis player Kyrgios at the US Open was behaving badly. During a break, Williams was still waiting for Ramos to acknowledge that she had not cheated: "You're attacking my character".

"I truly believe that whoever penned this opinion editorial should do the honorable thing and resign", he said. "And we are trying to do what's right even when Donald Trump won't". But it would not be unprecedented for a member of the national security team to buck the president, according to a book to be published next week by the reporter Bob Woodward.

Trump, meanwhile, has denounced the Times opinion piece as "gutless" and its publication as a "disgrace" bordering on treason.

The article - apparently written by a senior Trump official - said "a quiet resistance" within the administration was working to thwart some of the president's "worst inclinations".

"We'll find out if there was criminal activity involved", vice-president Mike Pence told Fox News Sunday.

Both Pence and Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to Trump, pushed back during separate television appearances Sunday on the portrayals of Trump as anything but a thoughtful leader.

They also come as former president Barack Obama has stepped forward to harshly criticize Trump and Republican politics, comparing Trump in a speech Friday to demagogues around the world who exploit "a politics of fear and resentment and retrenchment".

Neither Mr Pence nor Ms Conway answered directly when asked if Mr Sessions should treat Mr Trump's comments as an order.

The Justice Department is supposed to make investigative decisions free of political pressure from the White House and the President.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Sen.

"What are the national security grounds to investigate that article?"

Though Mueller has not yet asked to interview Pence, the vice president said he would continue to "fully cooperate" with the investigation.

Manslaughter Warrant Issued for Officer Who Killed Botham Jean
It's unclear, however, how the officer managed to confuse the two apartments and why she apparently fired her weapon at the man. Police issued a news release Friday saying the shooting happened Thursday night at an apartment complex at 1210 South Lamar.
