Kellyanne Conway: Op-Ed Author ‘Could Be’ in West Wing


White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said tonight there is a possibility that the anonymous Trump administration op-ed author could be someone who works in the West Wing.

She actually started out the interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham tonight by saying, “I just have to correct the record. It’s not clear to us anyway that it’s somebody in the White House. It says ‘senior administration official,’ that could be many people. There are I think thousands of political appointees, hundreds of folks that would qualify under that title alone.”

She proceeded to dismiss this all as “noise” and knocking the media coverage, denying the reporting that Trump is “infuriated” and “isolated.”

Ingraham noted the small size of Trump’s presidential staff and said there’s been a constant concern of “people in this administration who did not buy into the Trump agenda.”

She told Conway, “It could be someone in the West Wing.”

Conway said, “It could be.”

Ingraham added, “That’s a problem.”

Conway responded, “That would be a huge problem.”

Multiple times throughout the course of the interview she took shots at the media, including the New York Times in particular.
