Vice President Mike Pence insisted, during his time involved with the Trump election campaign, he "never witnessed any evidence of collusion or any of the allegations" involved in the probe into Russian meddling in the U.S. elections, CBS News reported Monday.

Pence stressed the administration will "fully cooperate and are cooperating with the special counsel, we'll provide them any and all information," but he and Trump both "remain focused on the job we were elected to advance for the American people."

The vice president also reiterated "I am not aware of any contacts during the time that I was on the campaign between any officials of the Russian government and officials with the campaign."

The vice president's comments followed reports interviews have been requested, but not yet taken place, with West Wing officials involved in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, the extra presidential meeting with Russian President Vladmir Putin at the G-20, and the firing of former National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

Regarding Flynn, who was dismissed from the administration after he misrepresented the nature off a call he had with the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Pence said, "I think I was very clear what I spoke about on television is precisely what Michael Flynn had told me, and I believe the president was right to move him out of the White House."

CBS also reported former White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus is still working with Trump's legal team and letting it know of any contacts with FBI special counsel Robert Mueller's office.

Regarding those reports, Trump's White House lawyer Ty Cobb issued a statement saying, "Out of respect for the special counsel, we will not comment on interactions or schedules other than to say we are cooperating and look forward to a swift resolution, which these interviews will expedite."
