Kellyanne Conway to do fewer TV appearances after leaks allege she’s been backstabbing Sean Spicer

Published

on

Top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway has been a ubiquitous presence on major network and cable news programs for the past several months — but it looks like that will soon come to an end.

Conway tells CNN that she’s planning to “reduce my television exposure” in the days ahead, even as news shows such as Morning Joe have decided against bringing her on the air due to what they say are questions about her credibility.

Conway has taken heavy criticism for recent television appearances after she plugged Ivanka Trump’s clothing line — which likely violated federal laws against government officials promoting the private business interests of friends and relatives — and also claimed that former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn had President Donald Trump’s complete confidence mere hours before he was fired.

Elsewhere in the piece, unnamed sources tell CNN that Conway has been behind the whisper campaign against White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who has reportedly been on thin ice with the president after being brutally mocked by comedian Melissa McCarthy on Saturday Night Live.

Conway denied those accusations, and said that Spicer is “doing a great job with impossible odds,” while also praising him for having a “tenacity and focus that’s going to serve him well long term.”

WATCH: Lewandowski’s lawyer freaks out, tries to block Congress from asking any further questions

During the House Judiciary Committee testimony of President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski about the Russia investigation, Lewandowski's attorney frantically crashed the witness table and demanded that Congress stop asking questions of his client.

"Mister Chairman, as you know I am counsel for Mr. Lewandowski—" began the attorney.

"You are not a witness and you should not be seated at that table," cut in House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) sharply.

"I understand that," said Lewandowski's attorney. "I will leave after I register a formal protest based upon the debate that I heard. These seem to be unauthorized questions and I know you choose your words carefully—"

Lewandowski’s testimony will let Democrats build Nixon-like articles of impeachment: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

As President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski combatively testified before the House Judiciary Committee, he admitted that Trump asked him to communicate to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation must be shut down. Aside from that revelation, most of the testimony was unproductive, with Lewandowski lashing out at members of Congress and running interference for the president.

But as former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote on Twitter, these outbursts — and the fact that Trump sanctioned the way that Lewandowski behaved in the hearing — could be the basis for Democrats to write up articles of impeachment against Trump similar to those drafted against Richard Nixon in 1974:

Putin aims a weaponized barb at Trump over Saudi attack – and hits the mark

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.
