White House Admits Comey Swung Election to Trump

Conway also referred to Comey's admission that he may have subconsciously expected Hillary Clinton to become the next president when he decided 11 days before the election to announce the reopening of an investigation into her emails.

Conway artfully dodged questions from ABC's George Stephanopoulos, this after she said Comey confessed in his Senate testimony that the president didn't ask him to cease investigating former national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Those close to Trump have in turn sought to discredit Comey, whom Trump fired as Federal Bureau of Investigation director in May of previous year.

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.

Conway also complained to Stephanopoulos that Comey was given a "free commercial" to urge viewers to vote against Trump.


Second, um, what? Conway said, "This guy swung an election". She continued to push back against Cuomo's assertion that Comey's announcement hurt Clinton's chances. "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.

Shortly after her lap on the morning shows, Conway told the Daily Beast that she was being "tongue-in-cheek" during her comments on ABC.

She also smacked down the IJR for running with ABC's framing. "I don't think so", she wrote. Trump recently called Comey's actions "one of the worst "botch jobs" of history".

In case you didn't catch the segment, Comey called Trump "morally unfit to be president", and basically called him a pathological liar.
