White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway got more than she bargained for after sparring with Fox News’ Chris Wallace Sunday on whether the White House would cooperate with the House’s impeachment inquiry following a vote to formalize the process.
“The full House did not vote to authorize an impeachment inquiry, just Democrats,” Conway said on “Fox News Sunday,” before Wallace reminded her the full house participated and the majority voted for it. Independent Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) also voted to authorize the inquiry.
Wallace pressed Conway on whether the White House would cooperate with the process in this new stage, which Democrats promised would include public hearings, to which Conway responded that several current and former White House officials have already testified.
Conway responded by attacking Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on the handling of information from the closed hearings, telling Wallace, “You’ve seen a number of officials testify… What we haven’t seen is the fullness of the 8 or 10 hours each of them have spent testifying.”
Wallace noted that those officials testified over the objections of the White House.
