Kellyanne Conway slams Comey: 'This guy swung an election'

'Good Morning America,' Stephanopoulos Grills Kellyanne Conway on Comey Interview: 'That's Not Correct Either'
Shannon Reynolds | 16 April, 2018, 22:15

"The president is very confounded that this person is always able to divert the spotlight to him", Conway said told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on the morning after his exclusive interview with Comey.

Kellyanne Conway, the White House counselor, said the former FBI Director James Comey "swung" the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor.

Conway's comment, a reference to Comey's October 2016 announcement that the FBI had restarted its investigation into Trump's Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, contradicts the White House's long-standing position.

When Stephanopoulos accurately stated that wasn't true, Conway hopped into Trump defense mode and rattled off claims Comey wanted to siphon power away from the president by being in close contact with him.

"At the end of your interview, George, he gave a free political commercial, telling people to go out there and vote against the president and his interests", Conway said.

Conway reversed her argument later Monday morning, arguing that Comey wasn't capable of swinging an election.

Comey is carrying out a publicity campaign for his book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", set for release Tuesday.

These issues were discussed [VIDEO] during a heated April 16 edition of "New Day" on CNN with Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway joining host #Chris Cuomo.

Trump, meanwhile, tweeted a slew of insults at Comey, whom he fired in May. Clinton has said Comey's letter to Congress about the investigation shortly before the election was a "determining factor" about her loss to Trump in the 2016 election. I don't think so. "BEFORE Oct 28/Comey letter: - she struggled to get 50% polls in states Pres Obama carried twice - majority said she wasn't honest/trustworthy -Trump better candidate/message/connector", Conway concluded. "Suggesting he is a partisan interfering with the election is risky & unfair".
