President Donald Trump last month named Marc Kasowitz, a New York-based trial lawyer, as his private attorney for the Russian Federation investigation.

The investigation itself on behalf of the US Justice Department is being carried out by former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

At the White House on Thursday, aides sought to portray a sense of normalcy, staging an elaborate event to promote a Trump job-training initiative, while simultaneously going into lockdown mode regarding Mueller's probe.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", Kasowitz's spokesman Mark Corallo said to the Post.

"A convulsing Central America, faced with a lack of opportunities and with violence, is a tremendous risk for the United States, Mexico and the region", said Juan Orlando Hernandez, president of Honduras. Pence added that he "expects an early completion" of the proceedings.

After that report, Pence reiterated a previous statement that he first learned of Flynn's lobbying in March.

Two Washington campaign finance lawyers said the rules offer leeway when hiring outside legal representation.

Pence, who unlike his boss is not independently wealthy, could possibly use funds from the Trump-Pence re-election campaign or from Pence's new PAC, which is hosting a fundraiser Friday, to pay Richard Cullen, the chairman of McGuireWoods LLP.

Pence praised their heroism, echoing many others who have said that the tragedy could have claimed countless lives had they not been there and acted swiftly.

Pence's move follows a decision by President Donald Trump to hire outside counsel Marc Kasowitz and could signal the investigation is entering a new phase.

Vice President Al Gore also retained outside counsel in conjunction with an inquiry into his fundraising activities, including several telephone calls he made from his White House office soliciting Democratic campaign contributions. The same thing was done by Spiro Agnew (vice-president in the administration of Richard Nixon), Albert Gore (under Bill Clinton), Richard Cheney (under George W. Bush). He denies that any collusion took place between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Pence chaired the president's transition after the election - a period during which Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn had repeated contact with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
