Kellyanne Conway: Voters May Not Like Democrats ‘Investigating, Instigating, Trying to Impeach and Subpoena’
Asked whether Pres. Trump is concerned about threat of impeachment, Kellyanne Conway says voters might not have “much of an appetite” for House members who spend time “investigating, instigating, trying to impeach and subpoena people.” https://t.co/lUtqlAnbKu #ElectionNight pic.twitter.com/EbTa8Eodvd

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway spoke with reporters late Tuesday night after it became clear Democrats would take the House.
And naturally, that victory for the Democrats comes with oversight power on the Trump administration.
Conway was asked by one reporter about the specter of impeachment and dismissed it out of hand:
“I don’t know that there will be much of an appetite… all across this country and some of these Democratic districts among the constituents for their members to be spending all of their time or even most of their time or a fraction of their time investigating, instigating, trying to impeach and subpoena people.”
She then added, “I’ve hardly heard the words ‘Russian collusion’ all night.”
Earlier tonight, before Fox News became the first major network to call the House for the Democrats, Sarah Sanders was on Fox pushing a similar message that Democrats shouldn’t “waste time” investigating the Trump administration.
