Others were also quick to jump on Conway's Comey comments. Then she began trying to talk over Cuomo and went back to the well of thought to say that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was nothing but Democrat agents angling for Hillary Clinton to pull out the 2016 election.
Trump, meanwhile, tweeted a slew of insults at Comey, whom he fired in May. 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". Conway is referring to Comey's admission that he thought Hillary Clinton would win easily, which is one of the reasons he wasn't anxious about reopening the email investigation ten days before the election.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday that President Donald Trump is perplexed that fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey is receiving so much attention for what she characterized as a "revisionist" version of his limited interactions with her boss. Conway wasn't pleased and sarcastically responded "oh, Comey can just say what he wants?" while adding, "Don't just throw out sound bytes to go viral without letting me finish the sentence".
Her comments came the morning after Comey, in his first televised interview since being fired past year, said that he believed Trump was "morally unfit" to be president and recounted several meetings with the him, including one in which Comey says Trump asked for his loyalty.
She tried to walk the comment back in a later appearance on CNN, telling Chris Cuomo that Clinton was already set to lose the election and that Comey's announcement had no bearing on her doomed campaign. "As I said dozens of time, Hillary, not Comey, is why Hillary lost", she wrote. So Conway is saying that Comey swung the election to Trump because he thought the "wrong person"-Hillary Clinton-would win".
"She hurt herself; she was never at 50 percent", she said.
