Kellyanne Conway To ABC: Comey 'Swung The Election'

Kellyanne Conway's suggestion on Monday that James Comey's actions before the 2016 presidential election "swung" the outcome and enabled Donald Trump to win did not go unnoticed or unchallenged on Twitter.

"The president is very confounded that this person is always able to divert the spotlight to him", Conway said during an appearance on "Good Morning America" on ABC.

Conway was on the offensive against the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director on Monday morning, hours after ABC aired its sprawling interview with him where called Trump "morally unfit" to be president. "He thought the wrong person would win; people in his household wanted the other person to win; and at the end of your interview, George, he gave a free political commercial telling people to go out there and vote against the president".

Comey is carrying out a publicity campaign for his book, "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership", set for release Tuesday.

Her comments came the morning after Comey, in his first televised interview since being fired a year ago, said that he believed Trump was "morally unfit" to be president and recounted several meetings with the him, including one in which Comey says Trump asked for his loyalty.

Anticipated $0.37 EPS for Ares Capital Corporation (ARCC) on May, 2
BidaskClub upgraded shares of Ares Capital from a "sell" rating to a "hold" rating in a research report on Saturday, March 24th. Company's EPS for the prior five-years is valued at -6.6%, leading it to an EPS value of 15.45% for the next five years.

Trump, meanwhile, tweeted a slew of insults at Comey, whom he fired in May. "I don't think so, '" she said.

Conway defended her apparent reversal in an interview with The Daily Beast also on Monday morning, claiming she was being sarcastic in her ABC interview. "Show me the swing states where she was above 50 percent on October 20 before Comey came out ..."

She also tweeted her defense. I don't think so.

Conway's remarks followed Comey's interview with ABC's Stephanopoulos, in which the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director delivered a scathing rebuke of Trump and his administration, and encouraged voters to vote Trump out of office. "Suggesting he is a partisan interfering with the election is risky & unfair".
