‘We See No Crime’: Kellyanne Conway Goes On Fox News To Rant About Impeachment
White House Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News on Monday morning where she called the ongoing impeachment inquiry “unconstitutional.” She even went on to say that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff should testify before the Judiciary Committee’s impeachment hearing Wednesday.
“The White House counsel made very clear this is an illegitimate and unconstitutional process and we maintain that. 12 witnesses, 30 hours later there are no bombshells, a lot of bombs. I keep hearing all these analogies and comparisons to the Nixon impeachment and the Clinton impeachment. The fact is there was evidence of crimes there, direct evidence,” Conway told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer on Monday.
Of course, Conway doesn’t seem to have ever read the Constitution. The U.S. Constitution lays out broad causes and hands Congress wide-ranging powers to impeach any sitting president, making Conway’s claim false.
Conway then said that no one in the White House will be participating in the impeachment hearings this week.
“Why would we participate in an exercise they have three witnesses, we can have one and it is constitutional law. Does Adam Schiff want to testify?” Conway said from the usually-dormant White House press briefing room.
“We see no crime here,” Conway claimed. Countless legal and constitutional law experts disagree. “We’re still looking for a crime – let alone a high crime and misdemeanor that would justify impeaching and removing a democratically legitimately elected president from office.”
She went on to push another right-wing talking point, saying that Democrats have been “trying to impeach” Trump even before he was inaugurated.
