According to a person familiar with the meeting, Vice President Mike Pence’s outside lawyer met privately with special counsel Robert Mueller at Pence’s request last summer.
The meeting has not been previously reported. The person said it was held at Pence’s request to express his willingness to cooperate with Mueller’s investigation.
Pence retained Richard Cullen in June to represent him in the Russia probe. Cullen is the chairman of McGuireWoods and a former U.S. attorney. The meeting with Mueller took place soon after Cullen accepted the job.
Pence’s office, Mueller’s office and Cullen all declined to comment.
