Vice President Mike Pence says the Trump administration is focused on issues "the American people are focused on" and isn't getting distracted by investigations into Russian interference in last year's U.S. election.

"We have cooperated with the special counsel's investigation and we will continue to do that," Pence tells "CBS This Morning" Thursday.

Asked if he thought special counsel Robert Mueller was moving beyond his investigative authority, Pence replied, "Well, I think that's for others to say." Asked about reports that Paul Manafort, then the Trump campaign manager, offered to brief a Russian billionaire, he demurred.

Pence said, "We're just going to let this process go forward."
