White House Admits Comey Swung Election to Trump

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.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday morning that former FBI Director James Comey changed the outcome of the 2016 election with his announcement about Hillary Clinton's emails.

Conway, during an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America", appeared to suggest Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe handed her boss the presidency. She continued to push back against Cuomo's assertion that Comey's announcement hurt Clinton's chances.

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. As of early Monday morning, the president had not commented directly since the interview aired. 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.

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.

"I saw James Comey last night and I thought: 'Is it true that James Comey swung an election?"

During Sunday's interview, Comey said of Trump, "I think he's morally unfit to be president".

"I rolled my eyes and said, 'Really, this guy swung an election?' It was sarcastic", she said. I don't think so. "Suggesting he is a partisan interfering with the election is unsafe & unfair".
