CNN's Jake Tapper opened his show Thursday by addressing Vice President Mike Pence's recent claim that special counsel Robert Mueller should wrap up his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election soon.

Interestingly, Pence's comments came at a time President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen is under investigation for receiving hefty amounts of money from a number of sources - including an investment firm linked to an influential Russian oligarch with close ties to President Vladimir Putin. The investigation will reach its one-year anniversary next week.

Our administration has been fully cooperating with the special counsel and will continue to.
