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

Those close to Trump have in turn sought to discredit Comey, whom Trump fired as Federal Bureau of Investigation director in May of a year ago. When it was announced that Comey would be releasing a new book, all eyes were set on what details and information would be revealed.

When Stephanopoulos accurately stated that wasn't true, Conway hopped into Trump defense mode and rattled off claims Comey wanted to siphon power away from the president by being in close contact with him.

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.

Conway appeared to reverse her statement later Monday morning during an interview with CNN. She continued to push back against Cuomo's assertion that Comey's announcement hurt Clinton's chances.

"All Jim Comey had to do was keep his mouth shut". Or what? She later "explained" that she was "being sarcastic". "He could just ignore all of this". Conway wasn't pleased and sarcastically responded "oh, Comey can just say what he wants?" while adding, "Don't just throw out sound bytes to go viral without letting me finish the sentence".

While President Donald Trump and other conservatives continue to try and discredit former FBI Director James Comey after his bombshell interview with ABC over the weekend, an old tweet from Kellyanne Conway shows that there might be some hypocrisy in their criticism. Clinton has said Comey's letter to Congress about the investigation shortly before the election was a "determining factor" about her loss to Trump in the 2016 election. "I don't think so", she wrote.

"I rolled my eyes and said, 'Really, this guy swung an election?' It was sarcastic", she said. "BEFORE Oct 28/Comey letter: - she struggled to get 50% polls in states Pres Obama carried twice - majority said she wasn't honest/trustworthy -Trump better candidate/message/connector", Conway concluded.
