Kellyanne Conway Claims NY Times Report ‘Confirms’ Deep State: ‘Rogue Actors at the Tippy-Top of the FBI’

The way Kellyanne Conway sees it, the FBI’s reported investigation of President Donald Trump being a possible national security risk should be all the proof anyone needs of their corruption.

The White House counselor joined Fox & Friends on Monday to swat away The New York Times report that FBI officials wanted to know if Trump is secretly working on behalf of the Russians. The FBI’s concern was rooted in numerous aspects of Trump’s conduct and developments within his 2016 campaign, though it supposedly came to head when the president fired former FBI director James Comey.

“It sort of confirms what the president has said all along at some of the rogue actors at the tippy-top of the FBI who are no longer there because they were fired and worse,” Conway said. “Some of them were deemed to be leaking and lying, sexting each other obviously with their tremendous biases against this president, so I think it confirms what he said all along about some of those rogue actors.”

Conway continued by saying the only real news that came out of the Times investigation is that it happened but didn’t yield anything to damage Trump. When asked about how Trump reportedly concealed details of his talks with Vladimir Putin from his administration officials, Conway explained this by leap-frogging from the idea Steve Doocy put forward that the president was trying to prevent leaks.
