Conway questions Comey's credibility over Trump meeting claims

Conway questions Comey's credibility over Trump meeting claims

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.

In the interview that aired Sunday, Comey said that he would not favor impeaching Trump to remove him from office, because that "would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty-bound to do directly" - meaning through elections.

White House Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN Monday to sarcastically slam the idea the former FBI Director James Comey swung the presidential election, only for the show's chyron to parrot it as a honest response. "He thought the wrong person would win, his people in his household wanted the other person to win".

"He looked a little shaky", Ms Conway said of Mr Comey, on ABC's Good Morning America. It's really hard to follow, which is nothing new for those who track Conway.

"Point I made on 3 shows is that we are supposed to believe THIS guy swung an election?"

Trump tweeted "Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers".

Kentucky's Voter Registration Deadline is a Week Away
By mail, a registration application can be downloaded and mailed to a County Clerk or to the Secretary of State's Office. Voters who have recently moved need to update their voter registration information by no later than April 23, 2018.

'I don't think he's medically unfit to be president'.

Huh. So it seems Conway is criticizing Comey for swinging the election for Trump, something that Conway and Trump benefitted from, I guess?

He went on, "I was not his fan, but I'll tell you what, what he did he brought back his reputation".

Trump, meanwhile, tweeted a slew of insults at Comey, whom he fired in May.

Last July, the Daily Beast reported that an internal memo in the Trump campaign admitted that the Comey announcement had impacted the election. Trump recently called Comey's actions "one of the worst "botch jobs" of history".

The comments come the morning after the airing of Comey's interview with ABC News, his first since being fired by Trump last May.
