Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway told Fox News’ “Hannity” Monday night that an FBI investigation into possible ties between the Russian government and President Trump’s campaign associates has “nothing to show for it.”
“We’ve had eight months and I’m not sure they’ve advanced the ball at all,” Conway told Fox News’ Sean Hannity hours after FBI Director James Comey confirmed that the bureau was probing Moscow’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential campaign. The investigation includes, in Comey’s words, “whether there was any coordination between the [Trump] campaign and Russia’s efforts.”
The White House, including Trump himself, has repeatedly denied any collusion between the campaign and the Kremlin.
Conway added that “the unmasking of an American citizen through these intelligence leaks should concern everyone,” a reference to former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn. Flynn was fired last month after details of phone conversations between him and Russia’s ambassador to Washington were leaked to the Washington Post.
Turning to the House GOP’s bill to replace ObamaCare, Conway told Hannity that she was “confident that we’ll get the votes” to pass the bill in the House Thursday.
Conway, who met with House Republican whips on Capitol Hill earlier Monday, said that Trump and Vice President Mike Pence “did not delegate or abdicate the details [of the health care bill] to anyone else.”
Conway called ObamaCare “the most intrusive, invasive, expensive and expansive law – entitlement – that we’ve had in generations” and said Trump was keeping his promise to repeal it “by negotiating, by listening, by improving and making progress on the bill with leaders in the House and the Senate and, of course, our governors who control the Medicaid dollars.”
