During a brief media release Wednesday in Rockport, Texas, Pence shook his head with a nonverbal nonresponse to a question about Paul Manafort's conviction and Michael Cohen's deal.
Pence, who spent two days on Wednesday and Thursday to Texas and Louisiana, was asked several times more – about the roar of Air Force Two engines – if he had any reaction or concern over the news of former President Donald's campaign chairman Trump and his former longtime lawyer. Pence did not get involved.

When Rob Porter, a former White House secretary, was accused of attacking his ex-women in February, Pence told reporters that he knew nothing of the allegations and shelling of Porter until it happened. At that time, he offered no answer when asked why he was not up to date on the matter. He replied that he felt honored to serve the president.
