White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway made an appearance on ABC’s This Week on Sunday and attempted to defend Donald Trump’s decision to craft a letter defending his son’s meeting with Russians in June of 2016.
This Week’s host George Stephanopoulos brought up the fact that Trump’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, had said Trump was not involved in writing a misleading letter. The White House said the same thing.
“The White House and the president’s lawyer said he wasn’t involved at all,” Stephanopoulos explained. “They didn’t tell the truth.”
“You know, George, I know there this whole thing about…” Conway began.
“About telling the truth,” the ABC host interjected.
“Let’s talk about telling the truth,” Conway snapped. “Let’s talk about [President Barack Obama] looking Americans in the eye who are still suffering eight years later. If you like your plan you can keep it, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. Benghazi happened because of a video.”
“Kellyanne, you’re simply changing the subject,” Stephanopoulos interrupted. “You are changing the subject going back to President Obama and Hillary Clinton.”
“Don Jr. responded to an email that said he was going to get Russian government information on Hillary Clinton,” he added. “That was not out during the campaign. That was revealed just in the last several weeks.”
“But what came of that meeting,” Conway replied. “Nothing.”
