Mike Pence 'never' part of 25th Amendment conversation, he says

Mike Pence is one of several senior administration officials who have publicly denied that they wrote the article.

Speaking on CBS's Face The Nation, Mr Pence said he had not asked his staff whether they were involved.

"I would agree to take it in a heartbeat and would submit to any review the administration wanted to do", he told Wallace.

In an interview that aired on Sunday, Pence revealed that Mueller's team had not yet asked to speak to him.

"Let me be very clear".

"It also tells me that he's about the staunchest supporter that the president has, and he basically wants to go there and say, 'I was there, and I didn't see anything wrong, '" Napolitano added.

The vice president said his aides were as dedicated as he was to advancing Trump's agenda. "President Trump is doing for the people of this country".

He added that he doesn't know the author's identity but repeated that the individual should resign.

"The American people should know President Trump and I are going to remain absolutely determined to reelect this Republican Congress so we can continue to build on the momentum that's putting Americans back to work", he said.

The president has condemned the paper for publishing the article, saying: "They don't like Donald Trump and I don't like them". "But he makes the decisions, and that's why we've made the progress we've made". 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".

He cited national security concerns as grounds for what would amount to an extraordinary criminal probe, should Attorney-General Jeff Sessions decide to pursue one.

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".

A bombshell newspaper essay which detailed efforts to sideline Donald Trump from government was "just an obvious attempt to distract attention from this booming economy and [the president's] record of success", Vice-President Mike Pence has said.

Some of the officials featured in the book's anecdotes about the President, including Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, issued statements denying the comments attributed to them by Woodward.

Woodward has said he stands by his reporting.
