Kellyanne Conway slams Comey: 'This guy swung an election'

'Good Morning America,'

I don't think so.

"This guy swung an election", Conway said.

Shortly after the long-time Trump advisor's comments began to make the rounds online, Conway slammed the backlash as "misleading", and attempted to reshape her argument as one doubting Comey's ability to swing an election. "He loved being alone in the Oval Office, and wanted a piece of it".

"This guy swung an election, he thought the wrong person would win", Conway told ABC's George Stephanopoulos while discussing Sunday night's highly anticipated interview with Comey. "I think he struggled to answer basic questions, and he looked a little shaky".

Conway suggested Comey was actually keeping copious notes for his upcoming book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", which hits shelves Tuesday.

Conway went on to allege that Comey "admitted" in a Senate testimony that Trump did not ask him to drop the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, but Stephanopoulos interjected.


The comments come the morning after the airing of Comey's interview with ABC News, his first since being fired by Trump last May.

Conway, who appeared on "GMA" in the wake of the airing of Comey's exclusive interview with Stephanopoulos on Sunday night, was apparently referring to Comey's comments about his decision to announce in a letter to Congress the reopening of the Clinton email probe on October 28, 2016, 11 days before the November 8 election.

"If he objected to anything that he had witnessed in his very limited, very few meetings with President Trump, he should have said so".

Trump fired back on Twitter Monday morning calling him the "WORST FBI Director in history". "He has a very deft way of making things about him".

In the interview that aired Sunday, Comey said that he would not favor impeaching Trump to remove him from office, because that "would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty-bound to do directly" - meaning through elections.

President Trump's former golf caddy - a man with zero political experience - has, against all odds, risen to a top position in the West Wing.
