Kellyanne Conway Backpedals After Saying James Comey 'Swung an Election'

Kellyanne Conway Backpedals After Saying James Comey 'Swung an Election'

"I rolled my eyes and said 'Really, this guy swung an election?' It was sarcastic", Conway told The Daily Beast moments after the interview.

After her interview with Chris Cuomo and several others on Monday morning, Kellyanne Conway continued her defense of Donald Trump [VIDEO] in regards to the James Comey interview by going to her personal Twitter account. 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.

Comey is carrying out a publicity campaign for his book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", set for release Tuesday.

Following the ABC interview of Comey on Sunday night, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel wrote on Twitter that Comey "has no credibility" and that Trump was right to fire him.

However, GAO also estimated that untaxed online sales would make up just 2 to 4 percent of state and local sales tax revenue. Wayfair argues more than 16,000 different taxing units could demand sales tax collections.

"This guy swung an election", Conway told Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America" Monday, while derisively rattling off a list of Comey's various misdeeds in government.

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. "This misleading headline should include an eye roll and question mark", Conway wrote, while attaching an ABC News article with a headline claiming he she attacked Comey for swinging the election. I don't think so. "I don't think so, '" she said. "Show me the swing states where she was above 50 percent on October 20 before Comey came out ..."

But the president also said in an interview last May that he fired Comey at least in part because of the FBI investigation Comey was then leading into Russian interference in the election and potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
