Kellyanne Conway, President Trump’s counselor, held court on Thursday’s White House driveway shortly after the special counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released.
She made a message to all the people who claimed that Trump was colluding with Russia to change the outcome of the 2016 election and then tried to obstruct justice in order to cover it up.
During his press conference, Attorney General Bill Barr announced, “After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the special counsel confirmed that the Russian government sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes.”
Addressing reporters, Kellyanne Conway said: “The department of justice made it very clear that every request that they issued was actually responded to and fulfilled.” Conway continued: “That should make people very good about democracy and it should make them feel really great that a campaign that I managed and was successful in did not collude with any Russians.”
She stated: “We are also accepting apologies today too for anybody who feels the grace in offering them. There was no collusion and there was certainly no criminal conspiracy with any Russians. When I needed to find negative information on Hillary Clinton and how to beat her, I look no further than Hillary Clinton.”
Conway also called today “really the best day since he got elected” and reiterated that there was “no collusion, and there was certainly no criminal conspiracy with any Russians.”
Asked if the White House would support calls for Mueller to testify in Congress, Conway said it had already been supported by Attorney General William Barr.
Conway also said it’s “time to move on” now that the report is released. For those who don’t, “the burden is increasingly on those who don’t let go of this big lie.”
As chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Conway also said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) should resign. “He should not just resign, he should produce the proof he has said,” she said.
“If he has evidence of collusion that the special counsel could not find our money over 22 months and $35 million, I want that to be produced by Adam Schiff,” said Conway. “He should stand or shut up.”
