Conway: ‘Incredibly Irresponsible’ For WH to Suggest Trump Knew Russia Was Behind Hack
Top Donald Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway slammed White House press secretary Josh Earnest Thursday for remarks he made during the press briefing a day earlier insinuating that Trump had foreknowledge that Russia was behind the DNC hack.
“The Republican nominee himself calling on Russia to hack his opponent, it might be an indication that he was obviously aware and concluded based on whatever facts or sources he had available to him that Russia was involved,” Earnest said Wednesday.
“That is just remarkable, that is breath-taking,” Conway responded on Fox & Friends. “I guess he’s auditioning to be a political pundit.”
“That is disappointing to hear from the podium of the White House press secretary. Because he essentially stated that the president-elect had knowledge of this, maybe even fanned the flames,” she continued.
“It’s incredibly irresponsible and I wonder if his boss, President Obama agrees,” she said.
