Jim Comey trying to sell books, not save America: Kellyanne Conway

Kellyanne Conway is Concerned About a Self-Centered Liar Hogging the Spotlight

During the interview, Comey also said that his decision to announce shortly before the election that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was going to reopen the case was influenced by his belief that Clinton would beat Trump and his desire to make sure that the election results were viewed as legitimate.

Conway said that, in her view, Comey "struggled to answer basic questions and he looked a little shaky" during the interview that aired Sunday night. "He thought the wrong person would win, his people in his household wanted the other person to win". Conway's remark contradicts the White House's longstanding position, however, which is that the announcement had no significant impact on the election.

In an explosive TV interview ahead of the release of his book, Mr Comey offered his version of events surrounding his sacking last May and the investigations into Russian election meddling.

Comey provided the response after Stephanopoulos asked why Trump is "so reluctant to call out Vladimir Putin", the Russian president.

Trump fired back on Twitter Monday morning calling him the "WORST FBI Director in history". Or what? She later "explained" that she was "being sarcastic".

"He loves to divert the spotlight to himself and be the center of power", Conway told CNN's "New Day" Monday morning.

Huh. So it seems Conway is criticizing Comey for swinging the election for Trump, something that Conway and Trump benefitted from, I guess? "I don't think so".

Days before the election, Trump argued it "took guts" for Comey to "make the move that he made in light of the kind of opposition that he had where they're trying to protect her from criminal prosecution".

Last July, the Daily Beast reported that an internal memo in the Trump campaign admitted that the Comey announcement had impacted the election.

In his tweet, Trump complained that Comey "drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her" and asserted that in deciding how to handle the case, Comey "based his decisions on her poll numbers".
