Conway: FBI spinning its wheels on probe into Trump’s ties with Russia


Presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway pointed out on Fox News’ “Hannity” Monday night that the FBI’s probe into whether or not President Trump colluded with the Russian government during his presidential campaign has continuously come up empty.

“We’ve had eight months and I’m not sure they’ve advanced the ball at all,” Conway said to host Sean Hannity.

Her observation came just hours after FBI Director James Comey stated that the bureau was investigating into if “there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts,” according to a report in The Hill on Tuesday.

White House officials, including the president himself, have repeatedly denied the accusations.

In reference to former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn stepping down from his post last month after leaked details of phone conversations in which he spoke with Russia’s ambassador were disseminated to The Washington Post, Conway emphasized that intelligence leaks are a serious problem.

“The unmasking of an American citizen through these intelligence leaks should concern everyone,” she said.

Conway also expressed her confidence in the upcoming vote regarding the proposed GOP healthcare bill, noting that she met with House Republicans on Monday. She further noted that Trump and Vice President Mike Pence “did not delegate or abdicate the details to anyone else.”

Conway also commented on Obamacare, which she said was “the most intrusive, invasive, expensive and expansive law — entitlement — that we’ve had in generations.”

Trump is keeping his promise to repeal the failed healthcare law, said Conway, adding that he is getting that particular task taken care of through careful negotiation that includes listening to others.

Conway noted that the president is working with leaders in the House and the Senate, as well as “governors who control the Medicaid dollars.”
