WASHINGTON DC - The White House is issuing a scathing review of ABC News’ bombshell interview with former FBI Director James Comey.
On "Good Morning America" on Monday, George Stephanopoulos spoke to President Trump’s counselor, Kellyanne Conway.
Conway said that Comey struggled to answer Stephanopoulos’ basic questions and “looked a little shaky.”
In the nearly 5-hour interview with ABC News, Comey revealed that Trump may have obstructed justice when he said Trump asked him to “let go” of the investigation into his then-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. He also said he believed Trump is “morally unfit” to be president.
Conway argued that Comey didn’t know Trump very well and said that they met only three times in “very limited meetings.”
Trump tweeted Monday morning that Comey committed "many crimes" during his tenure.
Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 16, 2018
Prior to the interview, Trump tweeted that Comey's memos are "self serving and FAKE!"
I never asked Comey for Personal Loyalty. I hardly even knew this guy. Just another of his many lies. His “memos” are self serving and FAKE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 15, 2018
