Kellyanne Conway: James Comey 'Swung' 2016 Presidential Election

Kellyanne Conway: James Comey 'Swung' 2016 Presidential Election

After a rough back and forth interview on CNN, #Kellyanne Conway chose to continue her thoughts on Twitter.

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.

President Donald Trump believes that fired FBI Director James Comey is "engaging in revisionist history" in his new tell-all book, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday.

"He thought the wrong person would win", Conway said.

"I wonder why Jim Comey, as the sitting Federal Bureau of Investigation director, did not go to Trump Tower to meet with the president-elect for two whole months after an election", Conway said to FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo on Monday on "Mornings with Maria".

Conway defended her apparent reversal in an interview with The Daily Beast also on Monday morning, claiming she was being sarcastic in her ABC interview. "He's incapable of it as we see", she said. "I rolled my eyes and said really, this guy swung an election?"

She found the coverage of her words misleading there too.




Trump was referring to a July 2016 recommendation by Comey that Clinton not be charged in relation to her practice of using a private email server while secretary of state.

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

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

First, I have no doubt that Trump is very sincerely confounded at Comey's ability to grab the spotlight.

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

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, then a top Trump campaign surrogate, also praised Comey's move, telling Fox News in late October and early November 2016 that Comey "had an absolute duty" to "come forward with the new information" and "did the right thing".
