Vice President Mike Pence speaks during a conference on Prosperity. Pence has retained former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Richard Cullen, who is chairman of McGuire Woods, the Post reported.

The White House says Pence will travel from August 13 to August 17.

Vice President Mike Pence has hired outside legal counsel to help him navigate the investigations into possible ties between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, according a new report. He also served as special counsel to Virginia Sen. Paul Trible, R-Va., during the Iran-Contra investigation, worked for former Rep. Caldwell Butler, R-Va., during the Watergate investigation, was lead counsel to former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay during the investigation into his ties with lobbyist Jack Abramoff and was on President George W. Bush's legal team during the Florida recount in the 2000 presidential election.

Cullen served as a US attorney under President George H.W. Bush and is now the chairman of the McGuireWoods LLP law firm in Richmond, Virginia, according to ABC News.

An aide tells NPR the decision to hire an outside lawyer has been under consideration for weeks, and Pence chose to go forward with it earlier this week. Richard Cullen has a long record as a high-profile attorney in Washington, particularly in Republican circles.

Comey would not say in his testimony last week whether he thought the president sought to obstruct justice, but added it would be up to special counsel Mueller "to sort that out".

Pence's visit comes one day before President Donald Trump is expected to also stop into Miami to talk about changes to the U.S. -Cuba policy. Cullen and Comey used to work together at McGuireWoods.
