Kellyanne Conway's response to Comey interview contradicts Trump's talking point

Good Morning America ABC News Kellyanne Conway appear on"Good Morning America"
Kenny Thornton | 17 April, 2018, 05:28

Conway's remarks followed Comey's interview with ABC's Stephanopoulos, in which the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director delivered a scathing rebuke of Trump and his administration, and encouraged voters to vote Trump out of office.

When asked about Donald Trump's thoughts on the James Comey interview, Conway responded, "The President thinks that Jim Comey is engaging in revisionist history".

Former FBI Director James Comey says it is "possible" though "unlikely" that President Trump has been compromised by the Russian government.

Conway was likely referring to a letter Comey sent to Congress 11 days before the 2016 general election, in which the then-FBI director wrote that more emails had turned up in the Hillary Clinton email probe. "He thought the wrong person would win, his people in his household wanted the other person to win". As explosive as this interview was, it's Conway who's in the limelight this morning.

Conway attempted to walk back her remarks on Comey via a Monday morning tweet, after her interview.

"Point I made on 3 shows is that we are supposed to believe THIS guy swung an election?" Or what? She later "explained" that she was "being sarcastic".

Assad regime air defenses respond to missile attack over Homs
Syrian news agency SANA stated that "Syrian air defense shot down missiles which violated airspace over Homs". Asked about the incident, an Israeli military spokesman said: " We don't comment on such reports ".

She found the coverage of her words misleading there too.

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

Remember, too, that when Trump first fired Comey in 2017, one of the White House's initial defenses of the firing was because of how Comey mishandled the Clinton investigation, though Trump himself would later admit the Russian Federation investigation played a role.

In his tweet, Trump complained that Comey "drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her" and asserted that in deciding how to handle the case, Comey "based his decisions on her poll numbers".

Last July, the Daily Beast reported that an internal memo in the Trump campaign admitted that the Comey announcement had impacted the election.
