White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on Meet the Press this weekend to discuss the scandalous week at the White House after the New York Times released a column written by a Trump administration staffer denouncing Donald Trump.
Host Chuck Todd suggested that no laws were broken by the anonymous White House official who wrote it despite Trump saying on Twitter that it was “treason.”
“We’re not at war with anybody so you can’t really accuse anybody of treason,” Todd told to Conway.
“Oh come on,” Conway complained. “People are openly talking about the 25th Amendment and impeachment. It’s such nonsense.”
Todd then reminded Conway that Trump urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into whoever wrote the op-ed.
“The president of the United States wants the Attorney General to investigate,” Todd said. “What law was broken here that the Attorney General needs to investigate?”
“It depends,” Conway fired back. “There could be and there could not be. And so you don’t know that and I don’t know that.”
“Has he ordered the investigation into who wrote this op-ed?” Todd asked.
Conway dodged the question and insisted”
“I won’t talk about that. He has said publicly that he thinks we should find out who this person is. I don’t believe in giving this person so much elevation and oxygen.”
“So, it’s possible he’s given an order to the Department of Justice to investigate this?” Todd pushed Conway to answer.
But Conway again dodged the question.
“He has said publicly what he feels,” she claimed.
