Stephanopoulos Grills Kellyanne Conway on Comey Interview: 'That's Not Correct Either'

Following the James Comey interview that aired on ABC Sunday night, the White House sent senior counselor Kellyanne Conway out to do damage control Monday morning.

"This guy swung an election, he thought the wrong person would win", Conway told ABC's George Stephanopoulos while discussing Sunday night's highly anticipated interview with Comey.

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".

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.

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

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

After James Comey was sacked as head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation last May, many wondered when and if the former director would speak out. Comey had only ever testified that no one in the Department of Justice had made such a request, Stephanopoulos said, but he has always maintained his claims about Trump. "He has a very deft way of making things about him". "He loved being alone in the Oval Office".

Mr Trump's adviser Kellyanne Conway accused Mr Comey of peddling a "revisionist version of history" and sinking into the "gutter" with petty comments about the size of Mr Trump's hands and the length of his tie.

Conway suggested that Comey's allegations were disingenuous because he had waited almost a year to take them public, prompting Stephanopoulos to remind her that Comey had in fact told the Senate Judiciary Committee much of the same last year.

"This is somebody who wants a pay day", McDaniel said of Comey.
