(CNN) – In a response to comments by Sen. Rand Paul, former Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday he had no ties to Halliburton after he became vice president and during the Iraq War.
"I had no relationship at all with the company throughout the time that I was vice president. I didn't even talk to them," Cheney said on "Fox News Sunday."
"We kept totally at arm's length relationship," he continued. "So he obviously is not familiar with the facts."
Paul came under hot water with some Republicans after a 2009 video surfaced in which he made a speech suggesting that Cheney pushed for the Iraq War out of his own corporate interests with Halliburton, an oil field services company where he once served as CEO.
