Despite herself coining the phrase “alternative facts” to explain away President Donald Trump’s lies about the size of his inauguration crowd, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway bemoaned pundits on either size lying about the House GOP’s controversial memo on TV.
Discussing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes‘ (R-CA) memo that alleges surveillance abuses against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, Conway initially said she’s looking forward to see what Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), a ranking Democrat on the intelligence committee, comes out with in his own memo.
“Go ahead,” she said. “We’re for transparency and accountability.”
She then shifted gears and appeared to attack Democrats and other critical of the memo’s allegations and impact — and mixed up TV interviews with testifying before the FBI in the process.
“You can’t argue this, not under oath through the cable TV wars,” she said. “And that’s what’s happening. People are going on and saying things that are simply not true, hoping that they will come true.”
