As Vice President Calls for Mueller to 'Wrap It Up,' Video Mash-up Shows Pence Echo Nixon on Watergate

“Why write original material when Nixon can write it for you?” remarked cable television host Joe Scarborough on MSNBC‘s “Morning Joe” on Thursday.

After Vice President Mike Pence called for an end to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of the Trump campaign and administration in an interview with NBC‘s “Today” show on Thursday, “Morning Joe” pointed out the striking similarities between his remarks and those of former President Richard Nixon in the midst of the infamous Watergate investigation.


“Our administration has been fully cooperating with the special counsel and will continue to,” Pence said Thursday. “What I think is that it’s been about a year since this investigation began. Our administration has provided over a million documents, we’ve fully cooperated in it and in the interest of the country, I think it’s time to wrap it up. And I would very respectfully encourage the special counsel and his team to bring their work to completion.”
