Kellyanne Conway: James Comey 'Swung' 2016 Presidential Election

The White House and Republican National Committee have launched a widespread campaign to undermine Comey's credibility as he conducts a media blitz to promote his book, "A Higher Calling: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", which is set to be released Tuesday.

Comey agreed with Stephanopoulos that the possibility that Trump has been compromised is "stunning", but he suggested that he views it as unlikely.

After James Comey was sacked as head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last May, many wondered when and if the former director would speak out. I can not say that.

Conway suggested that Comey's allegations were disingenuous because he had waited almost a year to take them public, prompting Stephanopoulos to remind her that Comey had in fact told the Senate Judiciary Committee much of the same last year.

"All Jim Comey had to do was keep his mouth shut". Or what? She later "explained" that she was "being sarcastic". The two then spared over Trump's reaction, with Chris Cuomo noting, "he's going down to Florida to push his tax cuts".

Kellyanne Conway's suggestion on Monday that James Comey's actions before the 2016 presidential election "swung" the outcome and enabled Donald Trump to win did not go unnoticed or unchallenged on Twitter. His people in his household wanted the other person to win.

Mr Trump rejected Mr Comey's assertion that the president had sought his loyalty at a January 2017 dinner, saying: "I hardly even knew this guy". "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 he's medically unfit to be president'.

"If you're really anxious about counter-terrorism and alleged Russian interference and you don't know the president-elect - get up to Trump Tower like everybody else did and sit down and brief the man sooner", she said. "It's possible", said Comey.
