Kellyanne Conway Completely Stonewalls Martha MacCallum, Refuses to Say Whether Trump Has Tapes of Comey
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway completely stonewalled Fox News’ Martha MacCallum during an interview on Thursday, repeatedly referring MacCallum to President Donald Trump’s outside counsel.
Appearing on The Story, Conway used many words to say very little:
Well, at the White House, we’ve been referring everyone, Martha, to his private lawyer, Marc Kasowitz. And today, I’m happy to report, I can actually refer you to Mark Kasowitz, the President’s private lawyer’s statement. And you ran some of it. I really would tell the public if you want to see the full statement from Marc Kasowitz, go ahead and pull it up. I’m sure you can access a publicly, if not through the White House website. And it’s an important statement, because it reflects the President’s opinion, his lawyer’s characterization of the particular testimony. But I think it’s important, because if this was a classic legal case, you would have one side go and the other side go. That’s not how congressional testimony works. The other side does not respond.
MacCallum tried to follow up by asking Conway directly whether there are tapes of conversations between Trump and former FBI Director James Comey.
“I can’t comment on that,” Conway said.
The Story host pressed Conway, and asked why she couldn’t comment.
“Because I can’t comment. I work in the White House,” Conway said.
“But if there are no tapes, can’t you just say that?” MacCallum asked.
“I can’t comment on that. And the President has also said that he won’t comment any further on that.”
