Conway is once again supporting her crazy claims, and we’ll see if it gets some buzz from Twitter.
Trump Was Simply Responding
After the Twitter fire of President Trump tweeting about witch hunts and being investigated by special counsel Mueller, Conway says that Trump never admitted to being under investigation. The counselor to the president states that it was a “Twitter-shortened reaction” to the media coverage of the ongoing probes. Fake news cries, anyone? Conway insists this morning that Trump tweet last Friday was not what it seemed. Her insistence follows that of Trump’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, who said Sunday in a host of talk shows that regardless of what Trump says, he’s not being investigated.
The president stated on Friday that, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director.” but Conway says it was simply a response to a Washington Post report. The report says that Mueller has widened his investigation to include if Trump committed obstruction of justice. Conway has this to say about the subject:
“That’s president’s personal lawyer. He’s saying that nobody has ever notified the president that he’s under investigation,” Conway told Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt. “That’s the president responding to a Washington Post report that included five anonymous sources. And that’s the president, in his 140 characters, through his significant social media platform, Ainsley, telling everybody, ‘wow, look at the irony here.’”
Sekulow’s Response to Conway
Sekulow, who was interviewed after Conway on the show, dismissed the allegations that Mueller is investigating Trump’s obstruction of justice as described it as a “Washington Post theory.” He also stated that Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey was not a crime, either statutorily or constitutionally. Sekulow stated:
“Look, Bob Mueller has a sterling reputation in Washington, D.C. When it comes to the individual lawyers that he’s named to his staff, if there were conflicts, we’d raise conflicts. Rather than getting into the individual lawyers, Bob Mueller has a good reputation, solid reputation, sterling reputation. But what we will do as the lawyers involved in the case is evaluate facts and issues and developments if they were to come.”
