Vice President Mike Pence spoke to NBC News on Thursday and urged special counsel Robert Mueller to end his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

"Our administration has provided over a million documents; we've fully cooperated in it, and in the interest of the country, I think it's time to wrap it up," Pence told NBC's Andrea Mitchell

The Justice Department tapped Mueller to lead the investigation almost a year ago.

Most recently, his team has reportedly been looking into corporate payments that a Swiss pharmaceutical company and AT&T made to Michael Cohen, the president's personal lawyer.

When NBC asked Pence about Cohen, Pence tried to distance the Trump administration from that part of the investigation, calling it a "private matter."
